So I had a dog named Freedom that we got when I was in the 5th grade. He was a West Highland White Terrier and he was named for his 4th of July birthday. We mostly called him Free. A few months shy of his 18th birthday he died a very old and loved dog. My parents kept talking about getting another Westie but I never thought they were going to do it. But the other week my dad surprised me with an email with a picture of an adorable new puppy named McAllister that they call Mac.
Last weekend I went home to DC for my mom’s birthday and to get a chance to hang out with Mac before he gets too big. Around 6am I was thinking about going to sleep when I saw some baby robins nesting outside my parents kitchen window. I got my camera but without a telephoto lens I couldn’t get a decent shot without bothering the baby birds so I turned the camera on McAllister and I popped off about 100 photos. Because it was so early there wasn’t much light in the kitchen so I had to shoot all the way open at 2.8 and still shoot at a pretty slow shutter speed. If you don’t know what that means, it means that of the 100 or so photos most of them were pretty blurry. But fortunately for you guys I am a master of both photographic technique and puppy wrangling and I got some pretty adorable shots for you to check out.
Yes I know, it is not a naked girl or drunk people at a night club, but I figured you guys would enjoy a change of pace.
