I had a very nice chat with PT & the subject of "composition" came up, in teaching students to paint.
- either you have it or you don't, & can be difficult to learn
- I am not much more than a point & shot + focus camera guy / don't know how to shot in bad light
- but my awareness, of the photo outcome helps me
- some of it comes naturally...some is a mindset, being a perfectionist
- if a photo is worth taking, its worth 5 seconds of my undivided time & full attention
- when I look at a scene, I picture frame the image...before I even line up the camera

Once the camera or cell phone, is raised to my eye:
- walls, door jams, window sills, fence posts...must not be tilted, a KSF
- verticals remain vertical & horizontal stay true...the effort is taken / crocked shots don't impress much
When I framed the above image, I knew it was my "once a year photo"...so don't mess it up.
- first I lined up the left fence post straight, trying to capture the full tube diameter...for scale
- next I purposely DSLR focused to just cut off a smidgen of top hair & bottom hand
[on bottom hand, the sapphire gold ring, was my Xmas gift from GF (now Mrs. Beau)...so has to be included]
- this would also maximize size of new puppy (eyes unsure of situation & stranger) & loving expression, on sons face
- and centered puppies head, while leaving space between both sides of sons orange sweater...worn that day, for photos / sons 1st travelling baseball tryouts (9 y/o), even done wearing an orange T-shirt, to stand out in coaches mind
And click, I had the magic shot on the first take.

Perfection & hand-eye coordination, comes with attitude & practice.
- when I take a bad photo, review it & remember what went wrong...avoid next time
I'm self trained in auto body rust repair, panel making, welding, sanding bondo & painting...started the hobby in grade12 - so I can feel with the palm of my hands, and see flaws before vehicle repair is in shinny paint.

I enjoy cutting veggies for supper preparation, onions are diced accurately, apples pealed with high precision, potatoes cut with french fry qualities, cucumbers slices all same thickness, radishes sliced like paper thin (for homemade coleslaw)...etc.
- so unrelated to painting on canvas or capturing a digital picture
- practicing any hand-eye coordination, with a goal of doing an improved job...from last time
- and visualizing the outcome, before I start
- and my summer landscaping work was all done to 1/4" grading, all eye-balled / a foundation, decades in the making

Hope the methodology-explanation, can help others some...and I like to over-analysis (hehe).
Love the little bundle of wrinkly puppy skin! And, the Moose Lodge hat!

You all need to check out Hertzcarsales.com, if you are in the market for a well priced vehicle.

That is what I do.

If you call us, you might get me!

Don't run for the hills just yet. If you don't like me, there are 11 others, similar to me.

Yea-Yea ^^ and those Big paws.

5 minutes earlier, 9.5 week old was playing with her litter mates.
- and next she is sitting on a bigger brother
- she had him pinned to the ground, with open mouth around his throat
- brother wasn't moving, Kel was focused on winning the battle war
- Sandy the breeder yelled at Kelly and she let the Male go Free
- next Kelly proceeded to hide in the corner of the fenced in play yard
- hiding from the breeder (Mom1), with the look of "I'm still a good girl"

We knew we had the "spitfire - little Tom boy" puppy. And matured into solid muscle plus very quick.
- O'h crap / this one might be a challenge......"survival of the fittest", was her early rearing

Kelly gets into a solid puppy fight / and next our Son is Loving her up...Puppy thinking, "who is this guy"...LOL
- this dude got me in a Firm Hold now, like I just did to my brother...but he seems to Like me, I guess

Sorry Beau,

You are in Canada.

Can't help you.

We only deal with the US stores.

If you come across the border, I might be able to get you the discount, as well, but the deal would have to be sealed driving off the lot and you title and register the car. I think. Title and registration issues hit my desk every day, and that is not supposed to be my/our job, but we are all one company and "got's" to get the customer happy!

If you ever decide you spy a car you like, on my side of the border, I will do more research on the proper handling of your sale.

It's really not a scary thought. I might be scary here, because you all are scary too. Tit for Tat...

However, I have to maintain a professional and patient demeanor while I am getting my ass chewed off (like the chicken Lily Belle killed).

I work in the Corporate office.

Now can you all see why I go berserk on you all, here?

You all are my beloved stress relievers!

Thank you!

Until a Mod reels you in, you don't have to be a butt kisser on MY thread!

I am not THAT high up on the ladder, just scrutinized, a lot harder, regarding my position. Not just me, but the 10 others. Hence, my comment about there being "11 others, similar to me."

Corp doesn't = I have any power. It means I have to get the issue solved.

SCALE ^^ That reminds me:
- Kelly puppy wrinkles on her back, are cute
- and sort of matches the folds on sons sleeves (size wise), on his fleece Polo sweater...a good detail

CONTRAST - son wearing orange top (on puppy pickup/photo day) was planned to contrast with black puppy.

I still don't know what to name my kitty.

I think he? is just now taming down enough for me to haul to the vet for fixing purposes.

They will want the name of the cat.

The Cat Won't let me type everything correctly.

Has anyone had this issue before?

I are confused.

A friend of mine raised a litter of 10 puppies.

Somehow one of them decided “Hey You” was his name, and he kept that name for the rest of his life. (From what I heard of that litter, it’s quite possible that his last name was “Cut That Out!”)

Name of Cat--Boy Cat # (however many you have or have had)

Beau. was BAD last night - I wasn't washing Kelly close enough at midnight when we went outside.
- she picked up a smell, and darted around the corner of the house (like a freight train) & headed for the back yard

I called & called her, in the dark of night...few minutes later, their she was beside me
- and I smell SKUNK

Now the Mrs. has to get out of bed & we had an hour of cleanup plus extra laundry.
- crock pot for vinegar, to kill some house smell
- Kelly didn't get to sleep with me last night (first time) / an old blanket covered the couch, for her nap last night
Don't Laugh - Me BAD ... their, I said it !!

And even once they’ve gotten rid of the smell in general, they will still smell skunky every time they get wet, for a lo-o-o-ong time.

Ask me how I know

Have fun!

Ladies - Beau. needs a SKUNK smiley or 2...to laugh about a night that I'm glad is over.

MEL - Top of Kelly's head, smells like a "used dish rag", when i planted her a kiss (this morning).

OK Mel ------- Inquiring minds want to know !


I have heard that it takes 5 years for it to wear off 67 !

Boy - I'm pooped ! Took off the last 2 days - after reading all that work that SP is doing plain tuckered me out - lol

No really - been so busy here on the poor farm - I haven't spent much time with Mr. Business - So we headed over to Rushville - 1st stop was the JD store to pick up my weed eater and filters for the 49 - Well that took forever - everybody wanted to pet the rock star - Not one of them said Ken how you do 'n' - Not one - it was all Kadin - lol

Then on over the IH store - more filters for the combine and again - Not even a go to he!! Ken ! it was Can I pet your dog ???

Today - headed to Greenfield to the Nutty Mutt to pick up his dog food - Becky ( the owner ) was petting Kad and taking a pic for her face book page - then a special treat and more rubs - Oh yeah - she did say high to me and that will be 75 dollars -

Then on up to the new Pet Smart - I - we - have never been in it - we always go to Pet Value in Shelbyville - anyway - they did say hi to me when we walked in - took a nice look around ( nice store ) then I went down the wrong Aisle ! The one with the dam birds - Mr. Business loves birds ! To chase !!!!!!!!!!!!!! He thought he had hit the gold mine ! Man - he was a hand full for a second - lol Got a couple new balls and was paying for them-- for what ever reason -- he spun a 360 quicker than two shakes of a puppies tail and launched a big ole turd ! I just about did the same thing when I seen him do that trick ! - He never do's this ! I guess he didn't like the store

Then we headed on to the TSC store - they have a really nice place there ! Mostly farm supplies - work clothes - dog food - they have everything In there -- btw - I did find me a new Carhart sweat shirt ! Mr. Business was on his game - he was perfect ! auto sit - you name it ! Yes - I'm bragging on my boy Again - pet's and rubs to last a life time lol

Even if nobody knows me - lol I don't know to much that I enjoy more than being with the Dob's - well I better also add my wife - lol

Well better get

Ken

Walking after dark with my first dog off leash along the top of a small levee. Just enough light for me to see the dog, who was running ahead, close quarters with a skunk--They rolled down the hillside locked together. You know how they say your life flashes before your eyes. Well....

Anyway, once they got to the bottom the skunk apparently got to his feet well enough to let out a blast...nailed the dog right between the eyes.

We lived in a one-bedroom apt. on the second floor--just a little balcony for a bit of air. And it was a Sunday night back when stores actually closed on Sundays. All of them. Our downstairs neighbor had four little 4-6 oz cans of V-8---which doesn’t go very far on a 90 pound dog, but.....

He slept in our other room that day with the door closed, but it didn’t do much good.

When I called into work the next day to say I had to de-skunk my dog, they said...YES--STAY HOME!!


Incidentally, the next time I saw a skunk with three little babies trailing behind her on the side of a road cut, she was between me and the dog. I couldn’t very well call him to me...but he came down the roadside carefully keeping his distance, with his head pointedly turned AWAY from the skunk. Smart boy!

Well the Skunk smell is pretty much gone today.
- Kelly was spray bathed & wiped clean, with AtmosKlear
- wife heated up Industrial strength vinegar, in a crock pot, on the kitchen counter
- and couch blankets washed & leather sofa wiped clean

We had Vet product years ago, for skunk smell but son business partner borrowed it for one of the little dogs.
- even sons little Trevor, got a Skunk sprayed last week
- but the AtmosKlear is the best darn stuff ever
- I originally bought it for a flooded basement, subject to some sewer backup
- auto detailer's also use it on flood damaged rugs and to musk cigarette smoke in vehicles, on used car lot
^^ Every household should have a jug of the AtmosKlear...just so many uses, and it simply works wonders.

ECIN - good story Ken, a fun read...we have a TSC locally, but nothing like the bigger ones in the States.
- our store are much smaller and nut/bolt inventory is always low...poorly managed some
- but still good for some items

"Mr Business loves birds ! To chase !!!!!!!!!!!!!!", and off he pulls......LMAO on that one.
- we have Pet Value & Pet Smart in ON. Canada here / was my competition when I sold pet food, for a decade
- but we go to Global Pet Supplies instead...their authorized to sell the Orijen kibble brand

Cheers, Larry

K, if all they did was ask you if they could pet or rub YOU...or even take a picture of you with them holding you close...wouldn’t you be just a little bit.......

I guess that question might be hard to answer, depending.

You are confused ...Now your confusing us !!

SP - done your 2 week straight work shift yet ??

- just call it Kitty, probably the only name its ever heard
Beau,

Do you have CRS?

I am off my two week, stint, of working.

And, the cat got here the middle of August.

So, to answer your question, about four weeks?

Is my math correct, Brod?

LMAO

Teasing you Beau!
