It was a warm sunny autumn morning – not a cloud in the sky – late in the season but the Cape doctor (that’s our local southeaster ) was howling and sea sand was blasting across the shore.
It was time to take the grumpy mutt - the spaniel - for a walk on the beach. With a trusty compact ( ugh ) in hand we set out for the beach. Under these conditions the beach is always almost deserted , something grumpy loves and runs around like a mad woman. The only drawback though is without any other company to keep her busy on the beach she is always inquisitive to see whats up. Every time I carefully framed up the perfect composition along she bounded 'Whatsup ! Whatcha doing ! Here these paw prints will improve your shot. Go on take a close up shot of my beautiful nose!' After a session with my editor and a meh - a below par day at the office I'm afraid. All the good shots got away and were ruined by grumpy - that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Pic of The Day
And finally so I can scrape this blog through the strict approval process of a demanding admin. A high key shot of "people" yes 'people' - the right way up - and perfectly composed on the thirds with a straight horizon to boot. It can be mildly annoying stepping over and around the mass of seaweed after a stormy high tide. Not so with ingenuity and nature supplying the equipment FREE and for gratis. The memories, daring, excitement and squeals of delight at being slingshot across the low water mark - PRICELESS
