To the woods to the woods with Rosie and Porridge

Cheapcam, like life, is too slow for Porridge.



The first shot's too distant, by the time the next is ready, I'm throwing myself out of the path of the storm.

The first photograph looks still and quiet, the distance one you could traverse. The second looks scary,hectic. Some Storm!

WOW! I bet storms are partucularly dramatic where you are...Im closing my eyes and listening to the music of storms I have known..!

Blow up the second one and print it, looks like an office-art poster. (I do mean that as a compliment.)

Heh - that's what my dogs are like, and why almost all my photos of them are while they're snoozing. Active shots would be awesome, but I'm just not fast enough. Porridge looks like fun :)

Thanks - I'm not certain 30 words communicated the matter clearly: Porridge is the storm! In the time it took from attracting her attention from a distance in the first shot to the camera refocusing she had galloped across the intervening space and would have sent me and camera flying if I hadn't spun out of her way pronto! She is adorable, but incredibly bouncy and enthusiastic.
Z - I nearly ditched the blurry one and retrieved it from the recycle bin as it conveyed the situation better than another. Office art, hmmm. Like there's a certain kind of painting I always think of as 'school dining room art'!

Visions of you cart-wheeling down the hill...

"Porridge" (stodgy and inert) seems a misnomer for this bundle of energy. If it must be a "cereal" name I would suggest something with more "snap, crackle and pop"!

Rosie said...

This is for avus: Porridge is really called Foxy Lady Noroy du Plessey, but she has usually disappeared before you can get all the words out to call her...Thanks for coming Lucy, it was good to chew the Christmas fat

Great post. I went to fill the missing parts over at Rosie's.
