#CBWC: Puppy Girl and Friends

Today Cee Neuner puts out an all call for Stuffed Animals or Pets on her Black and White Challenge. Raggedy Ann is not really a stuffed animal unless you consider the human animal, but unlike my last doll, Mary Louise, she is stuffed.

Puppy Girl Would Like to Introduce Her “Friends”

Puppy Girl approves that these stuffed toys sit on their own throne out of sight, out of mind. She also likes the clarity of my new Sony camera.

The last time Puppy Girl had a photo session with her stuffed friends she was five months old and had just moved in with us. This picture was taken with my Canon Rebel XTi, which was also new. Now she is nearly twelve. She didn’t like them when she was a baby. Some things don’t change.

Coming Soon

Starting tomorrow Cee Neuner and I will co-host Photographing Public Art Challenge a new and exciting photo challenge. What is public art? Here is a definition of public art.

    • Thanks, I’m getting some coaching from Cee with my new Sony camera, so I’m experimenting with f-stops and also a little with the processing. I’m amazing at how much you can change a photo with a few little clicks.

      • I took one photography class for a traditional camera, but I find it quite complicated. I’m so accustomed to digital photography now and different tools that make it easy. Anyway, I enjoyed your photos and subject matter. ๐Ÿ™‚ You inspired me to do my own entry with photos of some of the cute animals I watch. The public art challenge coming up sounds fun too.

        • Yay, Susan! I’m so excited. I grew up with an amateur photographer turned college photography teacher. I never got it. I used a Brownie as a kid. I took most of my pictures for my blog using my cell phone and the automatic setting on my digital camera. Cee is helping me with aperture this week. My first lesson was putting on the strap, believe it or not! ๐Ÿ™‚ Talk about feeling a little dumb!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
