This is Miru. He’s a 7 month old Shiba Inu, and we get to babysit him until Sunday. Ahhhhh, reminds me of the good old times when Suki was a puppy….a bad puppy 😉 Miru is relatively easy to photograph. Suki and Miru together? Pretty much impossible to photograph. I’m sure we’ll have some great […]Read More Miru The Shiba
I was cleaning out unwanted images from my archives last night when I stumbled upon some old images of Suki when she was a puppy. These are photos that I took long before I started blogging, so I think they deserve their own post today. The original jpegs were pretty flat and needed a little […]Read More Remembering Puppyhood

I mentioned this in my previous post, but the above image is a good example of how you can make your subject appear larger than they are in real life. I […]Read More An Unexpected Shiba Meet-Up
Found an optical defect in one of the inner elements of my Tamron 17-50mm /f2.8 VC a couple weeks ago. As soon as I discovered the problem, I shipped the lens over to a Tamron service center. I promptly received notice from Tamron that the issue would be repaired under warranty, but I’m still waiting […]Read More Life Without My Mid-Range Zoom
Ok Shiba fans, are you ready for one of the cutest Shiba videos ever? Shibas tend to display pretty happy-looking faces, but the Shiba in this video takes it a step further. Her name is ちいちゃん (Chii). Isn’t she sweet? I wonder if I could get Suki to do this…Read More ニッコリ笑う犬
