Canine interference

So, late this afternoon I decided to venture out into the garden. I saw a few dandelions on the lawn earlier and wanted to take my camera to meet them. I took a slow stroll around, looking for the perfect specimen, when our canine family member, Nelson, came charging, full throttle, from the back yard. He was super excited to see me and ran circles around me so I could not move.

I managed to calm him down sufficiently to take a few pics.

He even managed to look well behaved.

And then showed me his bottom teeth. At this point he suddenly jumped up, finally figuring out what I was trying to do and then proceeded to bite the heads of all the dandelions in our garden - well almost.

This one was not completely destroyed and Nelson left me alone long enough to snap a quick pic!

Jealousy knows no boundaries...

On her way to a party...

I have issues with my internet connection, hence the even less frequent posts. Unfortunately, this problem may still go on for some time - at least until the 1st of August when we will be moving into our new home (and hopefully this will be our FINAL move) and will have a fixed line at last. Here's hoping...

Anyway, Emma was invited to a Princess party and looked so cute with her crown, earrings and necklace, that I quickly snapped a few before we ran out the door - late as usual!

One of the things I like the most about living in this part of South Africa, is the abundance of Fynbos everywhere. I just love it.

Playing in the water

A while back, we spent a weekend in the beautiful village of Greyton. It was quite cold and very wet.

Off course, wherever water is involved, children have to play.

The sensible thing to do would be to keep you pants and boots on and tread carefully so as not to get wet.

But whoever said that Emma was the sensible kind?

Imitating the professionals

Emma was very intrigued with the young models I photographed for the make-up shoot. Because they spent several hours at my home studio, Emma was allowed to take a peak at what I was up to. She observed the models and their poses very carefully and as soon as they were done, she took her chance. LOL, I can just eat her up!
