Once upon a time we had a good camera and had a lot of fun taking good photos.
Like the following of Taricha n' her old buddy Rufio.
Lately all we've been using and seeing are cell phone photos. Awful ones, cause I have an awful phone. Taricha has informed me that she's tired of looking blurry and ugly in these low rez pics that usually need to go thru instagram to be salvagable. I informed her, that I dont have a good camera anymore! I loaned it out to a sister and I dont think we'll see it again.
A phone is truthfully easy as hell to slip in and out to grab quick shots. Like when we're running around 'duck island' which is a little mound of growth in the middle of a algae covered pond along the Sante Fe Trail, we're bouncing over wood planked bridges, climbing trees and poking under rocks looking for lizards. Carrying a real camera isnt always easy when you like getting dirty.
Unrelated note. Taricha has decided she only wants to drink from water bottles themselves while we're out and about. I usually pour into her bowl, but no, she insists on nearly 'sucking' water out of the bottle by wrapping her huge jowels around it and well.. sucking. I do wonder if this is 'safe' considering she is such a large barrel chested dog, sounds like she gets tons of air. I couldnt find much about it online. Guess its kind of handy cause now I dont have to carry a bowl around?
