Fine. I'll be the first to say "anal rape", "Anne Applebaum" and "Polanski" on this post.

Sun on the dog toy, on garbage day.

rh, I love the way the camera corrected for the dog's motion and blurred the still things.

motion

That's manual; move the camera with the dog and see what happens, is the technique.

In the modern days of free exposures you just do it lots of times and a few of the shots will come out interestingly sharp on some body part or other.

In low light your odds go down but the contrasting blurs are bigger when you hit pay dirt.

@rh Oh. I know you can do that, and you did it well. But I also have had cameras that do it automatically, and I've sometimes wished it would not do that because I really did want the background stable.

I love the color theme of this picture.

Well, INSERT TOPIC HERE dog motion photography may be problematic, Yet ANN thinks BusHITLER and CheneySATAN should be slathered in butter by geishas for THE WORST TORTURE AND WAR CRIMES IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE. And yes, those War Crimes, for they are guilty, are clearly WORSE than the HOLOCAUST and the DESTRUCTION of ALDERAAN and the United States is party to it all.

Fascist scum.

I believe I've said this before, but a good many of your photographs would make fantastic jigsaw puzzles.

Lovey pictures with a lot of overlapping textures and colors. They would be very difficult and challenging for those of us who like that sort of thing. :-D
