Hobbs: October 31, 1999 – February 15, 2013 My heart had been heavy, for quite a few weeks, my mind laboring intensely about what was the “kind” thing, the “right” thing to do. I’d read so many articles about euthanasia, understanding not only what it was, but when it was appropriate, and, like most things, everyone has an opinion. Actually, I had probably already made the decision as I watched the decline of my good friend, Hobbs; however, I wanted…

Reflections: I remember when … Over the years, I have so many photos of Hobbs that I could make a book, and I will. I didn’t intend to document his life, it just sort of happened. However, now in his later years, it seems essential. I’m watching him age, sometimes gracefully, sometimes not so much. He has his good days and bad days. Sometimes he’s full of energy, other times, seems lethargic, dazed, and confused. Today was one of those…

Master of all he surveys. In case any of you are wondering, which I’m sure you are, Anita is doing fine and dandy. As usual, she has bitten off a lot of photography showing work and is, as usual, burning the midnight oil. Congratulations on beginning the transformation of your house to the home of an artist I was fairly confident that you would sail through the second time around with framing. ~Anita While I was out in California, she…

He’s so dapper! Here’s my guy, fresh from the groomer. I just picked him up, brought him home, let him eat, then plopped him on the bed for a photo shoot before sleep set in. Although it only took me a few minutes to get ready, he was starting to nod off by the time I got ready to shoot. I had to wake him up to get a shot! Dang!!! As I type this, of course, he is sound…

He’s a professional It’s an easy Saturday morning. I purchased Kirk Tuck’s Minimalist Lighting book and am practicing with Hobbs. In truth, most of the knowledge contained in the book, I knew. I’d studied some lighting by the late Dean Collins, who was a master of light and I’ve done lots of reading on Strobist, et al, so there is nothing much that is new. Overall, it’s a good read, especially for someone who might be a beginner. I’m surprised…

In the ‘studio’ with Hobbs Tuesday, January 2nd, 2012: I took Hobbs to the vet. His doctor said that his cataracts had advanced quite a bit and she wanted to do surgery as soon as possible. I had to take him to have blood work at his regular vet and they would forward the results to CVS (Carolina Vet Specialists) by that evening. I got a call later on saying that CVS would like to start Hobbs on some antibiotics…
