A Dog’s Day

The Dog Days of summer are upon us.  People slowing down and getting back to basics.  In that spirit our blog is going back to it’s roots as a video sketchbook.  Taking an idea out for a test drive.

This week we go to the dogs.  Actually a dog.  My friend owns an Australian Labradoodle named Mona and graciously allowed a play date.  Mona loves just about everybody and was extremely tolerant of having a camera aimed her way.

Keeping a moving dog in the frame was was more difficult than expected.  Filming a dark coat in the harsh light of a Dog Day created other problems.  Especially in the shade.  Yet, Mona’s sweet and playful nature still shines through.  If you are a dog person it would be hard not to like her.

More than any of the other blog entries this one needs music.  A little piano to help it bounce along.  But the actual video part of the blog is hosted by a company that frowns on using “borrowed” music.  Oh well.

In other news, SlowTV took a casualty last week.  My first little HD camera which had served so well from Alaska to Europe to Mexico to Yosemite did not survive last week’s encounter with the Pacific Ocean.  It traveled well and will be missed.

Please join me now for a couple of minutes with a dog on a Dog Day afternoon.

    Love Mona! … need 2 things answered, how do we know it’s Australian without being able to hear her accent and why don’t you own one?
