One of the best things about being on vacation is to spend more time with mango.
He’s one year and a half now and he has changes do much since he was a pup. He more calm an loving now. He just wants to be near us and lay down or be pet. Today we took a nap together! He was so still at one point, I even forgot he was there. His breath calms me and he always warm and cozy.
These days we are taking longer walks, we sit and watch people go by and I’m so happy to spend more time with him.
(He was a great model today! He sat still and posed while I took his photo :D)
Mango made a new friend and her name is Cloe.
She is a three months old frenchie and they became friends from the first sight. They spent a whole night playing around the apartment so we decided to take them to the park together the next day.
Taking photos of two puppies playing is a huge challenge. Even with tons of light and a very high shutter speed, is extremely difficult to get good angles and a nice framing. But, as I’ve said before, sometimes those technical stuff are not really so important.
A big and very important part of photography is to capture moments that you are passionate about. And this day, this moment was one of those!
I also did a short video to keep practicing! Hope you like it 🙂
Even though sometimes we don’t get the perfect framing, or the perfect exposure, or the perfect light, some photos are perfect for what they are, for what they make us feel and for what they represent. And this photo, to me, is perfect 🙂
Sometimes is important to not let technicalities get in our own way of really enjoying what we do. Perfection means something different for everyone and for everything.
Honestly, no person in this world knows how to Relax better than a puppy. Every time I see Mango sleeping or just chillin’ somewhere around the house, makes me want to do the same thing.
He just turned 10 months and his behaviour is changing so much. He is more relaxed now and just wants to be pet and hang out with us. We cuddle for the first time this weekend too! In general he helps me relax so much.
Whenever I’m feeling anxious or stressed, I just go and sit with him or take him for a walk and that helps me so much. That’s why I immediately thought of him when I saw the theme for this Weekly Photo Challenge.
As you might know from a previous post, a while ago I got bit by the “video” bug. By working on some projects with close friends that do amazing videos, curiosity hit me and I got fixed with the idea of learning how to do video.
The first thing I recorded was on the day we went to get Mango. I shot everything with my Samsung Galaxy Camera because at the moment it was the only camera I had that shot video. For personal reasons that I will explain in an upcoming post, I haven’t edited that video until now.
Nos it’s ready and I will love to share it with you! Hope you like it 🙂
I used Adobe Premier to edit and the amazing help of my friends Vero and Sergio!
This is Mango playing with his kong! I really don’t think no person know how to have Fun better than a puppy! He is amazed by everything and has fun with everything (that is why he is SO difficult to photograph, he never stops moving!).
A great challenge to begin the weekend!
This is Mango! He is a beautiful, 3 month old Border Collie. I remember about 5 years ago telling hubby that one day I would have a border collie and his name will be Mango.
And that day arrived last Saturday. We went to a farm outside Barcelona to get him. He was really scared the first couple of days but now he’s getting used to us and he chases us everywhere we go and wiggles his tail when we talk to him!
He is VERY smart. He learned not to do his things inside the house on the second day and he behaves sooooooo good when we’re out or sleeping.
I told him and hubby he’s going to be the most photographed dog in the world. And here are the first photos I took of him.
He still can’t leave the house because he’s missing one shot. He will get it next Wednesday and then we will take him with us everywhere we go! So be ready to see a lot of Mango from now on!
Have a great week!
