Phoneography Challenge: All creatures great and small.

Insect

Good morning from a cool Hastings day.

For this week’s challenge for Sally’s challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally it is the challengers choice.  So I have gone for both small as in this insect to birds in the sky at Port Ahuriri

Seagulls

This was the most successful of my attempts to take photos of seagulls in flight.

Abbey

Then there is Abbey and…

Socks (1 of 1)

Socks.

Everyone will have to wait for any photos of me going horse riding.  We just worked with ponies yesterday and learnt how to care for them.  I did take a couple of photos but was limited as only one person gave their permission to take their photos.  It was fun and the weather was great for us.  Thank goodness.

Weekly Pet Share: Abbey

Abbey 13th March 2015-2005

Here is my latest photo of Abbey, my mother’s dog. She had just had a haircut and was looking beautiful.  Abbey is now going deaf and is looking tired now.  But she gives Mum a routine and something to care about.

Cee’s Fun Foto challenge: Chorus

Dogs that bite

This week Cee has gone for the chorus of this song, My favourite things.  I have really loved this series.  It really has been a lot of fun searching for the photos to go with it.

When the dog bites, When the bee stings, When I’m feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things, And then I don’t feel so bad.

So the first photo – actually I don’t think that Abbey would bite.

But this bee would certainly sting.

Bees that sting

I would say that my favourite thing is to take these photos when I am feeling sad.

Michele’s Weekly Pet Challenge: Abbey and Socks

Abbey (418x640)

Good morning from a very hot Hastings.  Here is some proof of how hot it was at 2 PM yesterday.

Temperature

This was only 2 PM.  It got hotter and hotter. Even last night at 8 PM it was still 27 degrees.  It is hard to sleep as well.  Very stifling.

Anyway since my daughter is leaving us next week we went and spent the afternoon at my parents.  We had a lovely time just chatting and enjoying both Abbey and Socks.

Socks (485x640)

Socks is getting into everything and climbed up the curtains which promptly ripped and made him fall.  The curtains were over 20 years old so they had to be replaced.  It was hard for me to see that my mother can’t use a sewing machine anymore.  I took my machine over and sewed the curtain for them.  My two children are very tall so they put the curtains up.

But is nice to see Mum enjoying the company of both Abbey and Socks.

Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge: Abbey

Abbey 26.11.2014 (484x640)

Good morning from a cool but sunny Hastings day.

Last week my children and I went to my parents house to do a working bee in their garden as a Christmas present.

Of course the camera went with me.  Actually Dad wanted me to take some photos which you saw on Monday.

I wanted to get some new photos of Abbey and Missy.  Today is Abbey’s turn.  She is getting old now, 13 years in our years so that makes her really old.  Her left shoulder is now twisted as you can see and she is going blind but is still devoted to Mum.  Mum just dotes on her.

My apologies to all those who leave lovely comments if I don’t get back to you.  I do appreciate them all.

Michelle’s Weekly Pet Challenge – Abbey has a haircut.

IMG_3493

Last week I took my mother with Abbey to get groomed.  She looked so pretty.  With both my parents being unwell they haven’t been able to groom her for a while so she was looking rather bedraggled. I had washed her once as the heat was getting to her and she was so funny running around drying herself.

This time she couldn’t wait to get home and show of her new coiffure.  I had to quickly snap some photos before she leapt out of the car to go to her dad.

Here is Michelle’s post to find out more about this challenge.
