the perfect shot

Missed.

As I do everyday, I walk Schwartz some time between 5 and 5:30, usually depending when I get my lazy up off my desk chair.

This morning, as he was doing his business, I saw something out of the corner of my eye.

There, across the street from me on my neighbor's lawn, was a family of deer. Four of the biggest motherfuckin' deer I've ever seen. All stopped still and staring directly back at me.

Talk about a photo opportunity which I, of course, totally missed.

*gives herself the "Wow! I could've had a V8!" smack on her forehead*

I scampered inside as quickly as my healing ankles could take me but not before my doodyhead dog started woofing at them. It caught their attention and by the time I got back outside to snap their picture, I watched them sprint across several lawns and outta' sight.

These days, I always carry my camera with me in my purse. Other than taking some shots of my daughter playing inline hockey last weekend, it's remained virtually untouched. I haven't posted to my photo blog in awhile because nothing has really motivated me to take pictures. Until today.

I have some shots to post but they're just so lame a blind person would think they were worthless shit!

Alright, I'm gonna' go hang my head in shame now. At least it's Friday, right?!

Not having your camera - that I can understand. But you're in Georgia, aren't you? Didn't you at least have a sidearm on you? Or easy access to a shotgun? You could have been having venison for dinner!

It never fails that I see something or Pascal does something unbearably cute when we take our walks (the other day he decided to bury himself in the sand before I could stop him...messy but oh so cute). I ALWAYS miss the good stuff!

Dave, you crazy motherfucker, LOL! You always know how to make me laugh. Especially the part about eating nasty venison! Been there, done that, tasted like crow meat!

Ya' know what pic I got this morning?! A moth. An interesting-looking moth but a moth nonetheless. And more than likely it was dead 'cause it didn't react to me at all!

Honey, it wasn't too long ago that I realized one day that I love Schwartz to bits. No matter how many times he shits in the house or drives me crazy in general, he really is a good pup. Even if he does act brain damaged from time-to-time, lol.

I'm hopeless at catching things on camera. I could have the damn thing permanently attached to my hand and I'd still miss the good shots. I suck.

I carry my camera everywhere...there have been too many times I've wished I had it. They'll be back...take your camera on your walks!
