Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Candid

Dandelion Fuzz

I have always taken a lot of photos of my kids and now grandkids. A LOT. Because of this, their tolerance for getting their picture taken has decreased and I find myself asking them to say “cheese” only when I know the moment is right. The result is that I take more candid shots of them. Granted it isn’t easy because after a lifetime of me hovering in the vicinity with a camera, they are on their guard and at any given moment will whip their heads around to glare at me. Fun, right?

It was hard to limit myself and it was even harder to choose what to share for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Candid Photo.

April A to Z Challenge: A is for Alien

Travels with Choppy

Welcome to this year’s April A to Z Challenge! During April, from Monday to Saturday, I’ll be posting a picture of Choppy (and if I can get him to pose, Schooner). Each day will be a different letter of the alphabet, until we’ve gone from A to Z. You can get links to all the entries from last year’s challenge here. And don’t worry, I’m coming up with all new material this year, even if some of the letters are more than slightly difficult (I’m looking at you, I and X).

Thankfully, A is an easy one:

As you can see from the following picture, the cat was not quite as cooperative:
