Puppy Love

THE MAKING OF 'Puppy Love':

My Port Macquarie Panthers Camera Club mate Peter and I were at a loose end this Saturday so we did what we do best. Headed off to the Crèma for coffee, cake, lunch, a chat and hopefully some candid photography.

Candid subjects were a bit thin on the ground this day and it was getting close to going home time when I spotted this cute little scene approaching over the pedestrian crossing. It was all going down fairly quickly and there was a lot of pedestrian and vehicular traffic cross between us but with my camera set in continuous focus, (Servo mode), I managed to squeeze off just one shot.

Lovely to see you three drop by the Crèma for some coffee and a bit of people spotting.

I have had it in mind to make a Blurb book of my more recent Crèma Candids and your international, internetical prodding will certainly bear fruit soon.

I'll keep you in touch. 8-0

A little girl wearing a slightly anxious expression holds her puppy tightly as they cross the road. I think the puppy has the same expression.
