Dog Blog Post #723: Today was both obvious and easy for the Daily Dog Challenge:

Zachary, of course, prefers the Lacrosse Ball...

Dog and Lacrosse Ball

Happy Dog

Editor's Note: These were taken with my lovely 50mm f/1.4 prime lens, set at f/1.8 and ISO 400. Half were taken at 1/125s and the rest at 1/200s. You can probably tell which is which just by looking at them. Slower speed = better lit. Faster speed = sharper image, although I was able to play some games in Aperture to lighten up the 1/200s ones.

As the boys were quite close, "flashing" them was out of the question and it was still too warm to open the blinds. Still, it's amazing how well f/1.8 works in low light! f/1.4 works even better, but at that range there would probably be just a whiskers width in focus. :)

What great shots, and way to hit all the challenges with them! I'm impressed! I have a few Scavenge Challenge items left to get, and if I get time, I'll try to do two of them today. I might actually get the list done this time! lol

No girls? I hadn't realized the boys still had the berries to go with the twigs before. :P All that long golden hair hides it well!
