And the whole Pack suffered for it! :laughing:

No story today, just pics...my first on the new camera. :thumbs up

Ember heard the rumor that Mom had a new camera and he waited patiently for her to come out so he could check it out... Hey! It even takes pics through screens! :thumbs up

Grace joined him to check out Mom's new toy:

42514

And Brier moseyed on over to check it out, too:

I trimmed all the dogs' feathers over the weekend. By the time I was done, the Side Yard looked like a dog had exploded in it! :laughing: Hair everywhere!

42515

The Sheriff actually came over to check that there hadn't been some sort of dogicide! :eek:

42516

The King checked it out, too.

42517

Both of them concluded that the Side Yard was pretty hairy but no charges were filed. :D

Ms Macie condescended to pose for a picture, but she was pretty busy and couldn't stay. So many chipmunks, so little time, y'know! :laughing:

42518

And I wanted to put the camera through its paces indoors, so she continued her patrolling and I went inside...

"Mom is spending way too much time with that camera!" :frustrated: :dog: :rolleyes:

The Esquire wonders why the heck Mom keeps smelling that camera. Didn't smell so great to him! :dog:

42520

Grace is wondering if Mom's gonna take a lot of pictures of her.

42521

"Of course, Grace! Let's shake on it!" :laughing:

And finally, a couple of posts of face shots. Notice the newly trimmed ears! (The old feathers are now part of the exploded dog in the Side Yard! :laughing:)

King Ember looking pretty natty.

42523

Princess Lil Belle is not amused.

I hope you both still think so at the end of the week after days and days of pics! :laughing:

Nah...you're safe...my connection won't let me overload you too badly! :p

yaaaaaay, first pic gave me a scare tho, thought wtf...

That was the first one I showed hubby--he had the same reaction! :laughing: hazel, on the other hand, was quite impressed that something with automatic focus handled the screen that well! :thumbs up

Awwwww :lovestruck:

I love the pic of Brier and Grace

My too little nudniks. :flirt: He's almost our biggest. She's our dinkiest. She's constantly giving him heck out in the yard! :laughing: What a feisty girl she is! :thumbs up

Yipppppppeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

Love the last shot of Lil Belle :cloud9: so cute :lovestruck:

She really wasn't amused... :o

Awww Coley goin' green

He looks stunning in green, doesn't he? :D He's been hearing so much about going green on the news that he's been trying to do his part as often as he can! :laughing: We don't mow often enough to satisfy him, though. :o

Yep, a digital. :cloud9: So no one is safe from the Pack...they're gonna be all over the place! :laughing: The only thing between you and total overload is my crappy connection! :p

lol, hazel i didn't read what you wrote before the pictures, me being me wanted to make sure it was taking good pics, sooo picture kinda scared me, then i saw the rest and read what you wrote, phew.

:laughing: That'll teach you to skip the story line and go straight to the pictures! :p

OMG What wonderful pictures! :thumbs up

We want more, more, more, more, more :D:D:D:D

I'm so excited :goodvibes:

Before I post any more pics, I have to fix the computer. Something on it wigged out--blew away hubby's account and profile! :shrug: Not sure how or what did it, but I have to rebuild his account tomorrow. Then I should be good to go again.... :D

I can't wait for morning now. There's an action setting...and the Pack plays lots in the morning! :thumbs up

This camera takes some getting used to, though. I keep trying to look through the viewfinder...which, of course, doesn't exist! :laughing: It's hard to get used to holding it out in front and looking at the screen... :o

hazel meets the 21st century--21st century wins hands down! :laughing:

Great pics Hazel, not a bad one among them. What kind of camera did you get?

Cindy

hazelrunpack
October 6th, 2008, 11:34 PM
It's a Kodak EasyShare C613, 6.2 megapixels with a 3x built in zoom. :D It's perfect :cloud9:--not too intimidating for a first venture into the 21st century, and it has a lot of features to play with...well, at least, compared to my old manual 35 mm SLR it does. I don't have anything modern to compare it to! :laughing:

It's amazing to me that you can edit the pictures right in the camera! :eek: It even has a setting for Kodak Perfect Touch automatic editing for the pictures--I always send out my 35 mm film for Perfect Touch digital processing! :thumbs up So it was sort of a comfy, familiar feeling when I found that! :o

Lucky for them, I can't get into the halloween challenge thread! :laughing: They really don't like to dress up much, although they did seem to enjoy the John Deere cap! :D

I just realized I forgot to post pics of Ridge! And now she's asleep next to Cole...so I can't get a good one. But here's one of the two of them. Cole is still thinking that Mom is spending too much time with that camera...and Ridge is still showing no respect for the Sheriff (notice the foot she has draped over his back! :laughing:)

The Sheriff showing his softer look...

He worried about everyone's sanity. :laughing: "They did what?! And why did they do that?!" :eek: Then he giggled a lot. :shrug: Men! :rolleyes: :laughing:

He's looking forward to using it, though... I haven't told him yet in so many words that it's off limits! :p Time for that tomorrow. :D

She's not happy unless she's draped over someone! Lucky for the Sheriff he's so big--if she tries to lie on him, she slides off. The littler girls are not so lucky! :D

HAZEL!! I love the pics! (I'm like you, I'm on dial-up, sucks doesn't it? sometimes I feel I could run to everyone's house and look at the pics sooner :laughing:)

With 8 dogs and all the feather cuttings, you could knit a throw rug, I'm sure. hehehe

Thanks for having fun with the new camera and welcome to the new millineum. Looking forward to many more pics of the pack! I have a Kodak Easy Share also, however, it's 5 yrs old....I'm looking to upgrade to something else that will give me crisper shots. But then again, I put it on the "sports" setting, cuz sometimes I have days where my hands shake, so really, lately the pics haven't been too bad.

That's the setting I'm hoping works for play time tomorrow! :thumbs up The tough part will be learning how to follow the action if I'm not looking through a viewfinder. I'm not coordinated enough to keep them centered on the screen when they're moving! :o

:cloud9::cloud9::cloud9:

Love how they are all curious :laughing: :lovestruck:.

Don't be fooled....for a while they thought it was edible. They lost interest soon after they realized it wasn't... :laughing:

Sanity! What sanity, it's overrated ask madame Hazel.


Those pics came in quick succession Hazel no waiting time for me, hmmm :confused: What program are you using to post them, I'm having a heck of a time posting pics, the wait for them to upload goes way beyond my patience. :yell:

Great photos of the pack Hazel, I love their silky ears :cloud9:

hazelrunpack
October 7th, 2008, 11:56 AM
Aw, thanks, guys. The Pack is blushin' with all the compliments. :dog:

I think I'm more likely to crash my modem and computer than pets.ca, happycats. :laughing: If I get a fast enough connection to post pics two or three times a week, I'm lucky. :o But I'll try...

L4H, they're all pretty environmentally conscious. They monitor all the wildlife and glean for acorns and mushrooms all the time. They know that if they trash the place, they'll have nothing to watch or nibble on in the yards. So they take care of their world. :angel:

Funny you should ask, SCM and breeze--I have a few more to post already, but I'll wait till after the Pack goes out to play. I want to try the action setting! :thumbs up

Chris, I loaded these out to the computer and reduced their size to about 20% using HP Image Zone (it came with my scanner and it's pretty good but it runs really big...I have to close out just about everything else to use it :o). Then I open the picture with Microsoft Picture Manager. It has a compress feature under the edit commands--I compress the pictures using the setting for web pages and that usually cuts the pic down to under 50KB for posting. :shrug: I've also had good luck with Microsoft Picture It! which is cheaper that Image Zone if you buy it. I keep Picture It around because it has some features that Image Zone doesn't...but if I accidentally open them both together I have to pull the plug on the computer to end the paralysis! :laughing:

I took the Pack out today to get more pics for rainbow, but the lady bugs drove us back inside and then I had to do housework. :frustrated: It's supposed to get cold by M or T, and then the bugs will be gone, so I'll try again then. :o
