Shadow Shot Sunday - Casual Canine
Shadow Shot Sunday, is an always fun meme hosted by Brisbane artiste Tracy. Today it is a photo posted before, and remains a favorite of mine.
The place is in northern Minnesota at bucolic (in the summer, that is :) Big Stony Lake, about 210 miles (340 km) from Minneapolis. The Land of 10,000 Lakes (actually 11,842) has the clearest water I’ve seen (I hear Wisconsin lakes are as well), the perfect place for a waterborne dog to play. The year is 1983, the medium ASA 400 film.
The dog her is Brandy the golden retriever, a member of a relative’s family, and one of the nicest ever. Like all retrievers, this friendly canine loves water, as she appears to be relaxing after chasing the tennis ball into the water. The one throwing the object, however, had better be ready - throw that ball (or branch) into the water fifty times, and the dog would retrieve it and drop it at your feet for the fifty-first toss...work to a great dog really is play!
See shadows aplenty at Hey Harriet!
