Then, I went out into the garden, placing my camera on the back steps. The white thing across the bottom of some of these pics is the book I balanced the lens on! As you can see I had trouble with a certain dog! Merlin was a bit confused by the camera taking pictures on it’s own and kept barking at it! In the second picture I caught him mid shake! Then I thought about putting the camera down on the grass and lying down. Merlin thought this was very funny, and his cue to lick me! We did have fun.
Finally, I sat at the kitchen table and got this one:
Not bad eh? That is, apart from the camera lead in the way! Note to self, clear the table in front of you first! Oh well, keep practising!
