This past Thanksgiving I made sure to bring one of my cameras, just in case we managed to get out for a walk or just to take photos in general. I knew there would be one if not too dogs there so, it was pretty much a no brainer. Who could resist taking photos of dogs, or any kind of animals for that matter. The animals in question my wife’s cousin’s dogs, Frank, pictured above and Yoshi who you will see below. The camera I decided to carry with me on this day was the Fuji X100F. It’s portable, discreet and super fun to use. Oh, and it produces great photos. Although, I’d like to think I have something to do with that. Then again, I guess that is all subjective.
I actually managed to get outside twice in one evening, so I was in my glory. The first was with everyone, and we walked to the park around the block. We had some fun around the playground and got some fresh air in the process. As always, I just captured whatever caught my eye. Usually it’s just still life that I find interesting, but I also got some good shots of the dogs and my family too.
The second outing was just me and Frank. I took him for a walk across the street around the train tracks. He was so good off the leash, waiting patiently here and there while I stopped to take photos. However, we did have a close call. I took my eye off him for a few seconds down a back alley. Next thing I know, he was in a backyard pinned down by another dog. Frank just went into the fetal position and gave me a look saying ‘I’m just going to play dead and wait this one out’. Luckily it worked. With a little cohering, the protective dog, released his grip and just barked at us as we walked away in shame.
After all that excitement, we headed back for some well earned turkey. Even Frank and Yoshi managed to get some as well.
