beans and the rhythm of her joy

22nd October 2013

There’s a lovely addition to my ever-expanding collection of favorite sounds. In the mornings when i walk down the stairs to let Beans out for a pee, i hear a thumping. It’s the wagging of my dog’s tail against the couch that she sleeps on; she is greeting me to the rhythm of her joy.

Here’s one from her sleeping

beeans sleeps in odd positions


and here’s one from when she was a bit smaller and she’d still fit on the pillow

picture of the week: Tomoka contemplates the surface

21st October 2013


This might be my picture of the year -i can’t ask to get more lucky than this. It is Tomoka Fukuda being her usual ridiculously graceful self. It was on a day when there was a sort of cloud of hazy visibility at the surface, but below 12 meters everything was clear, so i asked her to go down to just below the cloud and hang there, make the most of the combination of diffused light and clarity. She did the rest.
