Analogue Adventures with My Pets: Walking the Dog

1

Whenever I’m at my parents’, I go for endless and fun walks with their neighbor’s beautiful dog.

Orpheus is a special dog. He’s extremely friendly, active and just really unbelievably smart. For those of you who know a thing or two about dogs, he’s an Australian Shepherd x Border Collie mix, and he totally inherited the intelligence gene.

Orpheus belongs to my parents’ neighbor, a single lady. Due to her work, she doesn’t always have the time to give him the workout such an active dog needs on a daily routine. I, on the other hand, love playing and running around with him every once in a while, which is perfect: I get to have fun with Orphi and she doesn’t need to worry about him using his energy in less constructive ways around the house.

My parents live in a neighborhood right by a large forest, so I always take Orpheus for a walk in the woods. He loves playing with his dog frisbee that he almost always catches mid-air. It’s quite fascinating to watch him jump for it. If we forget the disc, he’ll also gladly run for sticks and carry them around.
Sometimes I bring a camera along and snap a few pictures.

Whenever I get home from walking Orphi, my own dog, Paula, is very very jealous. She won’t greet me at the door and usually she just eyes me very suspiciously. However, she’s too old and by far not active enough to walk with Orpheus and I, so she has to stay at home and gets walked at a slower pace. Of course, I always cuddle with her and assure her that she’s my only dog! :)

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
