My daughter’s dog – Bert or Bertie (depending on his behaviour) – came to stay for the ten days leading up to Christmas while she moved house. And the household adapted to being dog-centric. One feature of the adaptation being regular dog walking. The weather was not kind.
The UK has taken a battering from deep Atlantic depressions sweeping in across the country bringing floods, structural damage, travel disruption and power outages. Some people have endured a thoroughly miserable Christmas holiday. Thankfully we were spared. The dog walker (me) and Bert seldom left the house without returning wet and muddy. The only real exception was Christmas Eve after the worst storm had blown through. And for the only time, I went out with the Canon G10, and struggled single-handedly (not something you can do with a dSLR) to get some images. And here they are.
Sun on wet road surface produced classic B&W drama, and the dog sat still.
Heading back home, with the Sun low in the sky, we both grew taller, until Bert resembled a Giraffe.
A New Year looms – my best wishes to you all for a Peaceful, Healthy and Prosperous 2014.
