Dog Blog Post #747: Gee, looking at the post number makes me wish I'd taken pictures of airplanes!

But no, today's prompts were...

Daily Dog Challenge "255. Words To Live By - What are some words that your dog lives by?"

Our Daily Challenge - July 12, 2012 - "Keeping it clean"

And the boys are very good at keeping those peanut butter spoons, and the floor under them, clean. :)

It's still blazing hot out here, so I skipped the fancy backdrops and umbrella stands. Today I went with the camera on the tripod, as low as she'll go - which is pretty darn low - pointing where it always points. So if you ever wanted to know what was behind the black velvet backdrop, there it is.


Anyway, the remote was my right hand, spoons were the left. I originally tried to be clever and snap the picture when I saw a tongue start to come out. Alas, the time from seeing the tongue to clicking the button to the camera firing was abysmally slow. I finally just gave up and banged off pictures pretty much as fast as I thought the Speedlight could recharge itself.

Needless to say, the boys enjoyed this shoot very much. :)

Editor's Note: Bill Watterson was the cartoonist who drew Calvin and Hobbes, one of my all-time favorite cartoons. I found his quote where I find almost all my quotes, over at Brainy Quote.

Toby would like you to know that he thinks I should be a total copycat and steal your idea and do it several times to try to get even one decent picture. However I informed him that it isn't nice to steal other people's ideas, no matter much pb is involved!
Now he wants to know if he can come live with you. :)

uh, uh, uh...I love peanut butter too and so does Rich boy. I am starting to wonder maybe that is why my life is a chaos sometimes, cos I can't control my peanut butter. Haha!

Did I tell you you're both so handsome? Like identical twins. How do I tell you apart?

I'll be back,
