James with Freddy the Cockapoo

We recently spent a weekend at the Elvden Centreparcs and I took this picture of James holding our Cockapoo puppy Freddy in the garden of the Starbucks above the sailing lake with my mobile phone. I really like the expressions captured on their faces, although I wish had taken the photo with my XT-1 and a longer lens so I could have de-focused the background a bit. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible as at the time I took this picture all […]

Say hello to Freddy

We decided a few months ago that it would be a good idea to have a family pet and it didn’t […]

Having a sniff around

Whilst we were at Alexandra Palace for a paper craft fair I was taking some pictures of James & Emma when I spotted this dog sniffing about the grass in the distance. I had my Tamron 70 – 300 mm zoom fitted to my Pentax K-r and I took this shot.
