tad tired thursday post

017

Common sense says that one shouldn't feel any pressure or obligation with posting something clever, read- and see-worthy every day because of this blogs-of-note-matter - but as most of us know, sense isn't always common. Far from.

I'm still quite overwhelmed with the lovely comments you've taken your time and thought to leave, so so appreciated. Very much. I've even gotten teary over some of them, the serious sweetness is just... lovely and uplifting. I am planning to take time to at least begin working my way through them and reply/blogvisit you kind people come weekend, yes I do.

But since today has been quite a hectic day - of day time matters, which, as things annoyingly are, aren't nearly as pleasing as evening time matters. But that's another blogpost, which granted have been written with tad different words too many times already... - I'll just keep it reasonably short and answer a few questions from newcomer readers.

:: Yes I do take all the pictures in this blog myself. (On a very rare occasion some years ago I posted photos from a friend, just because she was there where there were kittens and I wasn't, quite obviously I had to post her photos then.)

I'm very much not interested in the more technical aspect of photography, I'm going with my gut feeling. Every time. My attitude towards the art of photography is like with life in general, I'm uninterested in people who try to outdo eachother with their supposed insights and know-it-all attitudes. It's just not very flattering and personally I don't find it confidence-inspiring. I want true passion, teamed up with a sense of I'm-knowledgeable-and-confident-but-I-don't-need-to-flaunt-it. I want heart.

:: The loaf dog extraordinaire's name is Malte and he's a Norfolk terrier. The bouncy, cuddly, super-friendly, stubborn (with a heart), energetic kind of terrier. And cat herder. But mostly a kind such of course. He came into my life (planned) as a puppy, at a low-water-mark-in-life and was such a great help, in all his demanding loafie ways. He turned seven years old last summer, we had a rather awesome birthday do then. Snow becomes him, he loves squeaker toys and greenies, he's an eager walker and a terribly good swimmer. Kind of not to the latter, but an awfully cute one.

See, this is what often happens to the "I'm just going to keep it short"-posts. Mind wanders, lotsa sidetracks, post flourish. By reading I suppose one wouldn't know this really is the tad tired Thursday post.

It is nice that you find time to blog at all. I love your photographs and your comments on your animals.
We all need to express our thoughts and our ideas. It does help, when someone takes the time to read them.
Keep on blogging!

I have a new little dog of my own. My friend gave him to me to help keep me company since we moved so far from our family and grand daughter. He is not so much a loaf as a bundle of energy. Keeps me up and moving. Animals are a delight to have around.

Taking time out to blog is hard. From a fellow Blog of Noter, I feel your pain.

That doggie is the CUTEST! Congrats on the BON.

Oh, this picture of Malte is adorable! It looks like he's smiling!

Not to mention, those flowers are beautiful. They're a nice reminder that spring isn't too awfully far away!

Ottercation said...

Very much in agreement with you on the photography issue. Everything is a competition nowadays! People so often forget to put themselves into their work, then it all ends up being a little soulless :(

You make photography look easy but it isn't. Any one can take a photograph but not everyone can make it look like art..

oh dear! If this is your idea of a "tad tired Thursday" post, then my "wide awake anyday" posts might be seriously lacking!
