Nice! Well exposed too.

Are your knees broken? Get down and shoot from anywhere but eye level ;-p

Again this is another shot you could try your Orton experiments with.

lol, knees are good but my back is killing me after an incident trying to pick up my mother after she fell :eek: (it's been a bad week).

but to be honest, I do need to spend more time looking at various angles. However, for this one I did want to catch what it looks like to walk along this path. it's my favorite dog walk.

but I promise to look at different angles and give it a shot (pun intended :rolleyes:) just be patient as I drive you nutty with my attempts :D

As long as you don't mind me throwing in a few little digs (suggestions and pushes) to inspire you then I don't mind being patient :)

Oh ... and don't get me wrong ... sometimes an eye level view or totally centred subject works perfectly. But most often ... that's the view most of us see everyday so alternative views/angles tend to have more impact.

never! how on earth can I get better if I have no feedback? I never mind a nudge or dig or temptation to try something new. I have no pretensions as to my ability. but I do desire to improve and I believe that since joining this forum I have improved (at least marginally) due to the patience and comments that others on this forum have been kind enough to give me.

If it's muddy then take the shot from a crouch or simply hold the camera down by your feet and focus without looking and see what you get. I do this very often in fact.

Hmmm ... maybe the muddy comment was meant for Bambi and how black the dogs would get huh? :rolleyes:

lol, I am starting to feel like a group project!

MA: my mom is going to be okay but her aging is going to do me in. She refuses to use a cane but falls much more easily. oh wait, as she says, she 'doesn't fall at all, just sometimes if she loses her balance she can't catch herself' :headslap: after bringing her to my place after a loss of balance in which she broke a rib and wrist she said that she didn't need the walker when getting out of the car and the fell on my lawn. :eek: I survived my kids but may not survive my mother :wall-an:

Mud I don't mind. which is good, living in NS it's hard to avoid.

and I get the idea of impact. I just have to remember in the moment. I will, I promise :o

OMG I can relate to that except it's my father!
Everytime I call I'm wondering which Dad I'm gonna get...the friendly "do you need any help with anything/are you doing okay money wise for school" or the hard-ass "You gotta get another job" = read = you're a slack-bum because you aren't working....even though I am trying to better myself by being in shcool to get a new career and better paying job!
I got #2 yesterday.
Sheesh....800 miles away and he can still make me nuts on occasion...:wall-an:
Combine this with having to get the remainder of my things from the ex's house who sent me a curtly worded email and this was why I was so flipping cranky yesterday and today too!

Sometimes I just want to move to Alaska and get a cabin in the woodswith no phone, no interent, just me a dog and a camera....sigh :yell:
I'll be glad when this week is over with.......:sorry:for the rant, feeling a bit down today is all.

Casil : Hang in there, things are bound to get better. Besides if you move to a cabin in the woods without Internet... How would it be possible then for us to see all these beautiful pictures you would take ?? Better you stick around and enjoy all the good in your life while forgetting or ignoring the not so good things that you have to cope with.

lol, it's an honour just to be nominated. I'll try to not let you down.


Casil-deep breaths. I remember what you are going through. It changes. just know that you are taking responsibility and working on a plan. Hmm should take my own advice ;) and whether or not you would miss Aussie, we would miss you :D.
But if you do decide to run away to that cabin in the woods, call me. I'll bring the dogs. and the pony. :goodvibes

Thanks for the encouraging words Z...sometimes it's just not as easy to not let the bad things override the good....most of the times it is but the last couple of days the glass seems half-empty where as most of the times it is pretty half-full!
I guess I should go back and look at the first 3 people in 100 strangers I took and get some perspective. :)
