Jabber Walkies

I walk some, and then I jabber about it.. :)

A few days ago I was out for a walk while it was still dark yet, It was unseasonably warm and dry, so I had a good long walk. With the holidays, there have been plenty of lawn ornaments out, since Halloween and all of the gravestones and pumpkins.

As I was walking along, I looked up a slope into a yard to see the distinct outline of a Dog, and did a double take, thinking a real pooch was standing there. "That's just a reindeer looking like a pooch... no, it's not, that's a real Poodle-looking statue! I have to come back later after it's light and get a picture."

That's heavy fog, around the Dog. I haven't seen a fog like this for a while, you could call it a pea soup fog, very thick, and it reminded me of when, as a younger pup, I'd stick my head down into the chest freezers in the supermarket on a summer day and breathe in the cold fog, it felt just like that. It was 26° F when I went out.

He kind of has a Dog show stance, very cute, and I've never seen this breed as an ornament before. I got up closer to get a few shots without so much of the fog. The wires might be for posing or animation, it appears he's plugged in, he's an Electric Dog!

With the fog and cold temperatures, there was a light frost over everything, the grass, the Dog's fur was flocked, and even his jingle bells and ribbon were frosty. I wish he could come to life so I could take him on a walk with me.

It's good to take a camera out during different or more unusual weather conditions and lighting to get different kinds of shots.
