Rick Nunn Visits Glasgow

…And there was a horrendous downpour of torrential rain. Typical! A friend who enjoys shooting as much as I do visits and we can rarely leave shelter. I had made a list, too, and most of it involved being outdoors. Oh well, I guess this means he has to come back. Muhaha.

As you can imagine with Rick visiting (if you follow him at all), there was food, there was coffee, and there were photos with flash (and my lightbulb moment of realising I have to get away from ISO 100 when shooting with flash). Oh, and a wolf thrown in for good measure.

 
 

Tuna Chunks

A photo taken from a few weeks back that was potentially going to be used in my 52 Weeks of Indie project, or whatever it’s called. Whenever I’m done with my tins of soup, beans etc I give them to Indie to clean with her tongue. No, she won’t cut herself. Bitch is tough.

 
 

“Gimme that biscuit”

Indie gets what she wants with that face. Also, ƒ1.4 on a full frame camera, mmm. I know I’ve been shooting with the 50mm and 5D for a year now, but I still get excited by it.

 
 

Olay The Shar-Pei

I know, I have this terrible habit of stopping people and asking if I can photograph their dogs. I wish I was even half as confident asking if I could photograph them, but that’s never the case. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never actually seen a Shar-Pei in real life. They’re quite simply not common dogs in Scotland. Couple that with the fact Olay is a mere 9 weeks old and you can imagine my heart melted a wee bit.

 
 

West End Festival

Unbeknownst to me, today was the West End festival held in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park. I had arranged to meet my friend there to walk our dogs, but it turned out to be a bit of a nightmare for dog walking because of how busy it was. On the other hand, I had struck gold with my camera as I love nothing more than being unleashed upon an unsuspecting crowd with my 135mm. With that said, I didn’t get to do much ninja snapping with a dog as demanding as mine, but it looks like the festival returns to Kelvingrove Park later in the month with cinema screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Amazing!

 
 

Indie, my pup

I would like to formally introduce you to my dog, Indie. I don’t think I’ve done that yet, have I? Indie is from Cardonald Cat and Dog home. She was dumped at the grounds where it took staff 4 days to catch her (it was only because she got stuck in a fence that she was eventually caught). She was quickly re-homed, but they brought her back after a week because she was difficult. I’ve had her for 4 years, I think.

I also took this photo of her just a few minutes ago. I think she got a good home, huh? Oh, and if my mum sees this, yes, I know I still haven’t called the estate agent …

 
 

Lookbook

A lookbook is a collection of photographs compiled to show off a model, a photographer, a style, or a clothing line. It is an especially popular term with “fashion bloggers” and is even the name of a website: (Lookbook.nu). — Wikipedia

A stylish grey and white fur coat complimented with a red harness and piercing blue eyes. Can you say fierce? I took a photo of this girl’s sister and posted it on my Flickr.

 
 

Early Summer Nights

These warm evenings are making me feel summery, even if it is only April. I can’t wait to get some garden furniture for my terrace and enjoy a few ice cold ciders out there. Last night, however, my friend Gary and I enjoyed dinner and Diet Cokes at Nando’s. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with a Nando’s, but a Nando’s at golden hour = perfection.

 
 

Dog in a bag

I was walking my dog along Finnieston Street when two women enjoying a glass of wine made a fuss over her. This doesn’t generally happen to Indie. As cute as she is, she’s a mongrel and doesn’t garner much attention (especially in comparison to my sister’s pug). Anyway, it took me a while before I clocked this woman’s three month old puppy, Wilson… in a bag.
