Daily Dog Challenge "236. Spinning"

… spinning away!

I picked the spinner up this morning at Party City, as well as few more props that might very well make their way into the photostream in the near future. Gotta love that store for props: huge selection, inexpensive to dirt cheap, and many thing in kids (read "dogs") sizes.*

Here's Zachary looking entranced...


But for the out-takes, you're going to have to wait until tomorrow's Mischief Monday post. :)

Wind Spinner - 4
1/20s, f/5.6, ISO 400, 50mm

Editor's Note: Jet asked about "Golden Slippers". You see all that fluffy hair on the boys' ruff and ears and tail and legs? Well, they ALSO grow it on their feet. And if you don't trim it off until they look like "cat feet" (assuming a short haired cat!) pretty soon your golden looks like they're wearing grandma's shaggy house slippers.

* Just a happy customer - I have no affiliation with them what-so-ever.

Neat spinner! I should try that with Sage. She'd be fascinated with a spinner too.

Great photos but even greater spinner. The mechanism is quite easy but to have it spin continuously without friction is difficult to do. Even the dog got entranced with it. So amazing. :)
