Benny with my New Camera

I tried out my new camera yesterday. Much as I loved my old Coolpix, it was starting to act up, blurring everything whenever I zoomed in all the way. I feared it might stop focusing completely, and repairing a digital camera that old would cost more than the camera is worth.

I got another Nikon and many of the controls are the same so the learning curve is not too steep. It has a Pet Photo setting and I tried it on our cocker spaniel. It gave me a fast shooting mode with a hair-trigger so sensitive that I took a lot of pictures accidentally. Most of them were a "miss" because Ben kept sniffing the ground and turning his head away. But I did get this one.


  1. Magnificent portrait of beautiful look. Greetings.

  2. Wonderful result. Excellent work in the new camera.
    I wish you many wonderful moments to capture
