A little early present for the blog...

Shannah the... dog photographer?

For years, I have read knitting blogs.

For years, I have also read dog photography blogs. Oh yes, dog photography.

But, lo these many years... I have knitted. I have not professionally photographed dogs (though I have amateurishly photographed Roxie and Raider more than necessary).

Today, I borrowed a camera and a dog to try my hand at something new. The camera is a Canon EOS Digital. The dog is Margot.

I haven't edited or cropped these or anything (I don't have photo editing software). I think they're pretty okay. It was fun, too. Margot is the perfect model. A calm, sweet beagle/whippet mix.

Here's what greets you from our balcony at night:

Who doesn't love a penguin?

(Just for you, Marsha!) :-)

Proof That it Does Get Cold Here

Can you spot my little Raider's nose?
