You are right, I was missing in action on this spot. But that doesn't mean I wasn't doing anything. Actually, I've been rather busy, just not with my photography. Which, I hope next year will change and instead of being cooped up at my other job, I hope to be doing christmas shoots. But this year, it is my other job, working at a boarding kennel and fmy non profit that kept me busy.

The boarding kennel is self explanatory, this time of year is busy, Thanksgiving, Christmas Year end. The rescue, not so much, since we fly dogs from Spain to the US, one would think it is more quiet, but not when you offer to fly within 72 hours from Harrisburg PA, to Philadelphia, to Madrid, from Madrid to Los Angeles to Baltimore, making sure 8 rescued Spanish galgos end up with your group in California. And then deciding that a transport needs to be arranged for at least 5 more to NYC the beginning of the year. But in between our new christmas tree arrived (fake, since I am allergic to whatever they treat the trees with here in the US) And before putting it in place, I just had to… Doc, a Spanish podenco who is our foster and still available for adoption through the rescue, was a willing model thanks to some yummy treats.

Or rather, Cuby. A former foster and fun girl, so when Mom and Dad asked if she could come stay for a bit when they were traveling, I said yes please. And when they wanted to combine that with an outdoor shoot, I could not refuse. Fall colors were still at their peak and I took her to Gettysburg on a weekday, hoping to be able to get some good shots. From her time with us, I knew she was an awesome poser and so we had some fall photo fun. At this moment I am still editing the shoot, but I can show this. Taken not far from the Irish Brigade Monument and according to the people we met at that spot, riddled with the ghosts of soldiers from battles long ago. Luckily Cuby wasn't bothered by them .

So far, most of the dogs I get in front of my camera are sighthounds. Which makes sense if you take in consideration the non profit rescue I am running also. But last week I finally got the chance to photograph Kozier, a corgi. Koozier belongs to Camille, a co-worker and we had planned to do a shoot for a long time, but finally last week it all worked out. 'Kooz' as we call him, had lots of fun during the shoot as did I, he is one of my best dog friends and it was great fun to work with a dog that you can actually position on a fallen tree without it falling off. Sighthound legs are just too long for that.
