September 4th - Puddles

This is Puddles. I'm pet sitting for a friend, and it was really, really hard to get a still shot of this dog. In the background, you can see the blur that is Hudson, a Golden Retriever. Puddles was just as excited, and I had a hard time getting her to sit! She's a sweet dog, and I've known her a long time. It's so sad that she has cancer and most likely isn't going to make it through the rest of the year. :( Couldn't tell from how happy she looks here, though, huh?! :)

Oh, yeah. Sorry about my knee in the foreground, too. From the blur in the background, I think you understand why I wasn't sitting on the ground trying to get this shot! ;)

Not that exciting, but I like it. :)

September 2nd - Endangered Species

So, here's a toy for the little scientist in all of us: Grow your own Endangered Species. Lions, elephants, and giraffes. (2nd column of toys) Sorry about the pic quality, not much to take pictures of today, unfortunately. I had school and work, and not much of an opportunity to take any decent shots. :P

September 1st - At the Fair

How in the world did it get to be September, already? I'm starting a new 3o day challenge, and the theme is going to be "Pictures from my cell phone." Easy, and hopefully more than enough to get me back into the swing of things (pun intended). It's been far too long since I've picked up a camera, even if it's only on my cell phone!
Here's todays picture, from the Fair:

I hope you enjoy this month's photos. Oh, and for those who are wondering, I'm working with my ancient copy of Photoshop 7. Man, it's painful. I miss the CS2 I had. I have CS5 at school, but am doing all of these photos at home, so...yeah...Ouch.
