As many of you know, our youngest, Buckley, is hearing impaired. Buckley was born deaf due to improper breeding practices. But it doesn’t stop him. He knows simple commands already, including “sit”. All you have to do is point down. 🙂
One of the most photogenic creatures on earth is a cat. Of course I don’t have much opportunity to photograph lions and tigers, but the common house cat is just as beautiful. Seriously.
I was at the Humane Society adoption event this Saturday taking the available animals photos and they had brought in a new black cat. I was completely enamoured by this cat. When you think of a “Halloween Cat” this is the cat you picture. Her eyes are fantastic. I could not leave her crate, I kept shooting until I could get the perfect shot of those EYES!
There was little to no post processing done with this photo. The 24-70 is just that sharp. Oh how I love it!
I just love those eyes.

Today, I decided to arm myself with a pocket full of Pupcorn and take the “big guys” out today to catch some pictures before the rain. The clouds were nice and it wasn’t so stinkin’ hot outside. Humid, though. The lens fogged up the second I walked out. Nothing a good wipe and some palm heat won’t fix. Buckley got left inside this time because he was in the middle of napping, and when that occurs you appreciate the serenity and leave him be.
(Thor will do anything for Pupcorn. Ask him if he “wants a nom nom” and you get a nice head tilt, too.)
(This picture was ridiculously hard to take. Duncan is terrified of my camera for some reason. Plus the neighbor’s dog was barking and he was far more interested in what he had to say than Mommy harassing him to smile.)

Headed out to the Dublin Laurens Humane Society after work. We got some of the dogs that have been at the shelter the longest. Some of these guys (and girls) have been there since January! We need to get them adopted out! Photos and status are current as of posting date.

I haven’t done shelter photography since starting at the VA, so this is going to be a challenge for me, but I am glad to be back. It’s for a good cause and a great excuse to break out the 6D and do what I love. Plus, who can possibly complain about playing with puppies and kittens all Saturday? Not this girl.
Here are some photos I took this weekend for the Dublin Laurens Humane Society at their weekly Saturday adoption event. The kitty cats are available at Petsense by the mall through the Humane Society and the doggies are at their facility in Dublin.
THIS LIST IS NOT ALL INCLUSIVE. These are only the animals that were at the adoption event on Saturday that did not get adopted. Sadly, there are MANY more dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies available for adoption that are at the shelter. I haven’t taken all of the photos yet, but there are many more to choose from.

This picture of Buckley is couple weeks old, but it’s just so cute. He looks like such a sweetie pie.
This was taken with the Canon 6D using the 24-105mm f/4L IS indoors with flash bounced off of ceiling.
Last week, I was on my way to a hair appointment 30 miles away. While driving down the road, I noticed a little turtle in the middle of the highway. I looked at the time, and I was pushing it, but I decided I must turn around and try to help the little guy (or girl) get across. I remembered someone posting a link on Facebook a while back to tips for helping a turtle cross the road, and I thought, well that was really helpful. Believe it or not, it’s not as simple as picking up Mr. Turtle and setting him on one side of the road… So, I decided to put together a little graphic to share with everyone to teach people the “proper” way to help a turtle cross the road.
