Weekly dose of George: Vintage series

Continuing with the theme of photos taken of my border collie, George, I submit this one for your viewing pleasure.

If you can find him, that is.



DSC04992 copy 2

This photo was taken in October 2007, when George was about 3 1/2 months old. Can you see him there, just to the left of center?

The sun was rising in the mist on that early October morning and George was watching my husband through the fence.

Taken off my back porch on the horse farm where we lived at the time, using a point-and-shoot camera - my trusty little Sony Cybershot. And because it was still a little dark, the flash went off.




Have a great day, all. Thanks for your visits – it’s always nice to have you stop by.

George was so little then!!

Jeannelle said...

Am glad to see this photo again! It was the one I saw the first time I ever visited your blog! I thought it was just gorgeous and used it for my desktop background for awhile. (My apologies to George....I completely forgot that he was in the picture.)

Donalyn said...

The flash, aside, don't you have shots you got with your point and shoot, that you have never been able to better with the big camera? Why is that I wonder? Are they really not better, or are we just expecting more? In any case, it's lovely shot of the young lad :)

Sweetpea said...

Just luv this, CG...oh George, sooo tiny, priceless memory....wunderfilled photo - the photo app inventors out there strive for these effects nowadays, HA!

Amy said...

This looks almost like two photos put together into one. You have the beautiful lighting of the sunset and then you have the flash on the flowers...but it works and yeah I found your sweet puppy right away but I have an internal sensor when it comes to spotting doggies :-)))
Have a super weekend Kate :-)) Hugs from the gang in Norway :-))

Georgianna said...

Amazing image, Kate. Just shows, it's never the camera equipment, it's the photographer with a great eye and a story to tell. Beautiful! – g

karen said...

Simply beautiful, I love that little George. I know that sounds strange since I haven't met him, but his face is so expressive, who couldn't love him.
