Sometimes I have trouble remembering birthdays, especially the animals’ birthdays. I don’t know what it is but, I have to look them up. Thunder’s is March 14, but for the life of me that date just will not stick with me. You would think I could remember Nestle’s which is October 1. Easy date, but I never remember it. The only one I remember without looking it up is Storm’s which is June 25…half Christmas. The pups were born 11-21-11 and with all those “1′s”, I think it will stick in my head. Thank goodness because one of the boys is going to join the 2 brown dawgs sometime in January!
Yesterday was Day 4 pictures, these are Day 6. Thanks to Cindy for the pictures.
We don’t know which boy yet. All we told their breeder Cindy that we want a super birdie dog to run hunt tests. So here’s to potty training in the winter…woohoo!
And for more cuteness, here are the girls:
Tomorrow is Wordless Wednesday, so Thursday I will talk about why we decided to get a pup from this breeding.
This past Friday Cindy asked if we could come over and keep and eye on Smokey and the puppies for a bit.
We said that we were too busy going Black Friday shopping and couldn’t spare the time. Just a little bit of mischief. Of course we said “YES!”.
Here are some pictures of the pups that I took that day–4 days old.
This is a blog hop. Thanks to Alfie’s Blog, Snoopy’s Dog Blog, Luna, a Dog’s Life, and My Brown Newfies for setting up this hop. Please go to one of the sponsoring blogs to find out who else has been mischievous.
Stop back tomorrow for Day 6 Puppy Pics (thanks to Cindy), and a bit of news.
This week’s challenge is Bokeh.
From Wiki: “Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. Bokeh is often most visible around small background highlights, such as specular reflections and light sources, which is why it is often associated with such areas. However, bokeh is not limited to highlights; blur occurs in all out-of-focus regions of the image.” Bokeh is not just for DSLRs with fast lenses. While bokeh is easiest to create with a DSLR due to their larger sensors, it is not impossible to do with a point & shoot.
Bokeh is created in one of two ways. A short focal length between the camera and the subject and wide aperture (small number, i.e. f/2.8 if your lens will open that wide) while keeping the background as far away as possible. A long focal length between the camera and subject, and the widest corresponding focal length while still keeping the distance between the subject and background as large as possible. A longer focal length will increase the depth of field – a larger focus plain – so the background would have to be farther away than with short focal lengths, otherwise it will all be in focus!
So I looked through my archives for some pictures which I hope qualify.
