Donkin's World: A Month Of Pictures

Richard Donkin has had a busy month with his camera.

Well that's January over. I feel as if I've been on a photography course the whole month, having taken hundreds of images, mostly while walking the dogs. Each day an image has been fed in to Blipfoto, a fun photography site set up for that very purpose. http://www.blipfoto.com/Earthwatcher

In between I've been tackling some thorny bits in my novel and I'm a lot happier now, but I'm going to keep on revising a little longer.

At last we're getting some raw winter weather with maybe some snow this week. That would be good. It's been difficult over the past few days since Pippa, our Jack Russell has been in season - still is - and our 12-year-old Westie, Dougie, has shown that there's life in the old dog yet. He won't leave her alone. But then, she's just as bad. We really could do without a couple of randy dogs under our feet the whole time.

I'm not convinced he's up to it but we're taking no risks. If these dogs were people, he'd have been locked up - it's all too much and we'll be glad when it's over. We thought Dougie was on his last legs when we got the puppy in the spring but she seems to have done him the world of good. He's enjoying his walks again although we limit those now to about three miles maximum, while she can keep going all day. There's a lot of puffing and wheezing from the old lad now but, in spite of his age, he's not yet out for the count.

Still, he's too old and she's too young for us to be having any thoughts of breeding, even if it was possible. Jack Russell Westies? Perish the thought. Cute though. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Jack+Russell+Westie+cross&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=C6w&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&prmd=imvnso&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=i04pT_fPNIPsOcqYrKgC&ved=0CC8QsAQ&biw=1440&bih=738#q=Jack+Russell+Westie+cross&hl=en&client=firefox-a&sa=X&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&tbm=isch&prmd=imvnso&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=c0e6433232f4f068&biw=1024&bih=603

I've been reviewing the images I took in January to feature my favourite three here sifted from this gallery. http://dickdonkin.smugmug.com/Other/Picture-Days-2012/20838998_PVdSC2/1694066767_bhKRVZ8#!i=1694066767&k=bhKRVZ8
