Keiko & Rosie take us to the Beach
Watching them race through the sand. The wind blowing their hair back and the giant poochey smiles on their faces, I can’t help but laugh! Keiko and Rosie love wide open spaces where they can run and play – both with each other and with their humans! And the beach, well that’s the perfect space for play. There’s waves to run away from (both are big scared cats when it comes to big noisy waves), seagulls to chase, sand to dig, balls to catch, sticks to fetch and some doggie paddling in the calmer water!
Observing them enjoying themselves fills me with joy and gratitude. Dogs really do appreciate the small things and being around them reminds me of little amazing things that make our days great. The beach, playtime, new spaces, time together and being outdoors were all on the top of my grateful list as we enjoyed or visit to the beach.
As a photographer, of course, I had my camera with me to capture some of Keiko and Rosie’s antics. I captured some gorgeous ‘still’ photos of all their action and a little video footage as well when I remembered (one of my 2014 aims is to experiment much more with video). I’ve combined these to create a video as Keiko and Rosie take us to the beach and remind us to ‘Play’.
I hope you enjoy. Video capture and editing is new to me – if you have suggestions or comments, please be sure to leave me your thoughts!
