I met Rocky yesterday for the first time. He had just awakened from his nap and was full of ginger and spice. I really do love puppies, but I was there to take his picture, which is difficult with him scrambling all over me. After a bit his mama, the people kind of mama, brought out a little bag of treats. ” Oh boy! oh boy! Do you want me to sit?” Well, he did not say that in words, but with a puppy, actions tell the story. So Rocky sat, posed, looking upward toward Mama. That was not quite what I wanted for more than a few shots, but there were other times when he squirreled around this way and that way and I was able to get something that looked like the puppy that I wanted to capture for my next project, a computer painting. I thought I would have to take a hundred shots to get the picture I wanted. As it turned out, I decided I must have a good one in all that I had taken so I quit and came home. I put Rocky’s pictures in my computer and found I had only 99 photos. I wondered if that would be enough. It was enough. I found this nice head shot among his photos. It was perfect. want’a see the results? Well probably not, but here it is anyway.
