The dog and walked along the river yesterday. The sun was out, the air was crisp and the salmon were coming home. I took my camera.
He loves the river. There were piles of elk droppings to smell, a few dead fish in the water to investigate, squirrels to chase and little trails to follow. While the light guides me, his nose guides him. He is getting better off leash, and it something we are working on when we are close to home, but I still am not comfortable letting him off leash in places where his nose might get the better of him.
So I was shooting with leash in hand; shooting one handed most of the time, with him and his nose at the other end. I was doing my best to focus and set my camera right. But of course there were shots that were not crisp or focused right, or crooked or not exposed right. Just like always.
I am pretty pleased with the results. I am about halfway through Brene Brown's book, and working on wholehearted living. I am taking my time reading it, because on the surface it appears to be an easy read, but it it not. There is so much more to it and her ruthless, sometimes gut laughing honesty is so good and I am trying not to miss any of it. I am trying to really absorb and practice what she writes about.
“Perfectionism is self destructive simply because there's no such thing as perfect. Perfection is an unattainable goal.” ~ Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are
