“Sausages?”

It’s been a while since I’ve papped my camera in Indie’s face – especially with the 28mm lens. I think, after 52 Weeks, I had exhausted her tolerance with the camera. Nothing entices a dog to pose quite like the promise of sausages, though.

 
 

Indie: 52 Weeks

Every week for 52 weeks I took a photo of my dog. I thought it’d be a great idea; I was snapping photos of Indie all the time and figured it would be nice to look back on in the future. To begin with I had a lot of enthusiasm for the ‘project’, but towards the end became lazy and dragged my heels. There are some photos here that make me cringe, but pushing myself as a photographer wasn’t what this collection was about.

It’s about Indie and how much she warms my heart on a daily basis, therefore capturing my life with her for a short period of time. I don’t know much about Indie’s background; how old she is or how many homes she’s had (I know I am at least her third, and she is probably about 7 years old now), but I know she is a lot of fun to have in my life and that’s why I took these photos.

 
 

Malia Visits Kelvingrove Dog Park

Despite having a working weekend, I was left to look after my sister’s dog while she was in Ibiza. Malia is a bit of a handful, and my dog, Indie, doesn’t get on with her at all (though Indie doesn’t get on with any dogs). It made for a stressful day! In a futile attempt to zap the energy from Malia so we could get back to work, we took her to Kelvingrove dog park for some exercise. Malia mingled with the other dogs, but Indie – as usual – cowered behind my legs.

 
 

Argyll Forestry

After spending most of last Summer distracted, I made a conscious decision to really embrace this Summer and lose myself in many outdoor activities. And so, with the proposed weather of  18°, a couple of friends and I went to Argyll Forestry for a mammoth Sunday morning walk, following it up with a pub lunch by the sea. It was the most perfect Sunday I’ve had in a long time; great weather, good company, nature and stodgy food.

 
 

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.

 
 

Indie: Week Eleven (Outtake)

I hope you’ve been keeping up with my 52 weeks of Indie project? I have a lot of outtakes, I just never edit or do anything with them. Except today. I had a hard time deciding between this one and the one that made it onto Flickr. I like the sausage (sausage is a funny word) in this one, but prefer the composition in the other shot, even if there is a lot of negative space.

 
 
 
 

Edinburgh

Nipped through to Edinburgh this weekend seeing as it’s less than an hour from where I now live, and I had to drop off secret files to my sister on a secret hard drive like a secret agent. Yeah. We had a sisterly couple of days together where we did more shots for our fashion blog (which I’ll be updating early next week) and had lunch at Frederick’s Coffee House on Frederick Street.

Okay, let me tell you about this coffee shop… They do white hot chocolate and white mochas, which you just have to try because white chocolate is the best chocolate. The food is good, too (next time I’ma get some cake). And the colour of the walls is the colour I’ve bought for my living room. Yaldi.

 
 

Firepie

Gary, Gary, Gary. Are you sick of seeing Gary’s face yet? ‘Cos there are still a few days left with him until he flies to the other side of the world for his 3 month tour with the Chilli Pipers. Seriously, there aren’t many people I can spend a great deal of time with, but Gary is one of them. I will miss him, but I’m sure the 3 months will pass quickly. When he returns it will be Christmas! I will almost be 25! Shit.

 
 

Indie: Week One Outtake

OK! So I have started a project where I’ll be taking a photograph of my dog, Indie, every week. The problem is, she’s so photogenic I end up with more than one shot, so I figured I’d post the outtakes on my blog and the real deal on my Flickr. Then when it’s all wrapped up, I’ll have the whole set published on my portfolio. Sheesh!
