Sometimes You Get a Do-Over

[singlepic id=1266 w=400 h=400 float=left]So we went to the beach a while back and I found myself caught short, with only the camera on my cell phone. The whole “best camera is the one you have with you” situation. I did get some pics, but they weren’t very good. We got to do another beach run and all of a sudden I realized that we were getting a do-over. Continue reading

Camera Swag!

I told you I was going to be getting a bunch of swag for the doodles. And I will. I really will. But there’s so much cool stuff out there. How do I sort through it all? It’s especially hard to sort through all the cool stuff for the doodles when I am distracted by all the cool stuff I could get for taking pictures.

Aha…and now we might be getting a window into what my hold up might be! I have been looking at camera stuff lately. I have my eye on something specific. I will tell you about that another time. (Think camera…) For now, I’m playing around with my new little gadgets. I think there’s still a learning curve with them…but I did have some fun playing around with them today.

So what did you get, Puparazza?? I’ll show you!

Daily Dog: Gratuitous Cuteness

There is no good reason for all this cuteness. I saw the cuteness and took a picture of it. Now I’m just sharing. And bragging. These doodles are being both sweet and cute. Oh, and they are being fun. That’s not unusual, in case you haven’t noticed.

We went for a good hike this morning and did some photographic experiments. Well, I did the experiments. These guys got roped in as little as possible. They spent as much of their time sniffing, trotting around and chasing each other as they could. Posing for Mom only when absolutely necessary.

We are safely back inside, and I’m working away on another post on this decidedly fall day. This is exactly the kind of weather for hanging out inside, watching some football, snuggling with some dogs and doing some blogging. We’ll see if I get my project done. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t!

In the meantime, you are local and want to join us in our Doodle Day of Beauty, be sure to let us know!

Instagram is taking over my life…

Ummmm, I have a new obsession. I can’t help myself. I get into these things…they are fun!

I’ve become completely hooked on Instagram and have found some amazing and truly entertaining feeds to follow. So I decided to see if I can get people to share their feeds here, as well. That way, if you don’t want or don’t have your own Instagram, you can just check them out here.

Cool, right?

If you do have an Instagram and you want us to add it to our group here on, just leave me a note in the comments—just need your instagram account name (no password or anything!) and whether you want the whole feed posted or just photos you tag #dosdoodles.

This is going to be fun!
