Lamps, the Collie, me, and a goose.



Cool lamps in a Thai restaurant.


Artsy-fartsy self-portraits. 

Violet's walk today. 

The Violet smile.

This and the next couple normally would have been outtakes (blurry, etc.), but she used to have anxiety about getting into water, so I was proud of her for charging right in today. She's always been fine with standing at the edge of a lake/creek/etc., with her front paws in, but she never likes to get further than arm's reach from me. We've come a long way with her anxiety.



She was watching Eric.


Ahem. It's a Collie butt.






And a rather angry goose.

  1. Those are cool lamps! And gorgeous self portraits, too.
    Violet has a fantastic smile and congrats on her victory with the water! Good job, Violet! :D

    Great shots! Though I wouldn't mess with that goose, haha.

    1. Thanks, Marquie! We gave the goose a wide berth - that picture involved a lot of zoom, haha.

  2. Beautiful pictures!! Those lamps are gorgeous and Violet is such a beauty. A friend I had when I was younger had a Collie and she was such a sweetie I remember! :)

  3. From what I've heard, geese are always angry :D I think I missed this post, glad I caught it. Pretty photos of Violet by the creek. Beautiful self-portraits...I rather like black and white photography for portraits anyway. :) The lamps are really cool. I love retro and antique thingies and love glass.

    1. Thank you! Geese do seem to always be angry. Spring break is next week! Will I be heading off to Florida for debauchery? Nope, I'll be catching up on my Sims 2 Stories by Lorelei. :D
