The Silver Bullet

And now the premier of my first publishable video from the new camera. The clarity is superb on my laptop but much gets lost in translation to Youtube. Nevertheless, you will get the picture, so to speak.
The pond has thawed and the goldfish/pondies are enjoying the fresh water at the surface. The pup is doing his usual frantic running. The plot is very thin, and the pup runs into the photographer at one point.

  2. The resolution on my wide screen monitor was impressive, really impressive. I love the twig dangling from Chumley's mouth. MUST KILL STICK!

  8. Wow, that is a great new toy. I love your pond. I could spend hours just sitting there watching the fish. The Chumley is so cute in action. Now I have my morning smiles, the day can begin.

    Hi Mel - Great resolution! You sure have a steady hand.
    Some people in my photography class take pictures of reflective ponds like you have, then flip them and crop out everything but the reflection. Looks like an impressionist painting.
    You are going to have so much fun with this camera...

    You don't need any plot. This was an action flick if I ever saw one. Now I want a new camera too, because Santa brought me a new Sunpak tripod and it came with a spare head, so I could switch out movie and still...

  13. Great picture (and sound) quality. Nice to see the little chap in action - was he chasing anything in particular, or ... just chasing? (BTW, did you know that if he were English, he might spell his name Cholmondeley? His tail has a very aristocratic curl.)

  14. Are those the same fish that you began with when you moved in? Or did you have to replace them along the way, I can't remember. They seem to have grown alot! Chums is so cute! The funniest part is that you actually are trying to capture it all on the camera. He's definitely king of that roost!

  15. ZOMG how cute is the chumster wumster?!! It's too bad (or a good thing) that I have no idea where you live or I might dognap him! :)

  16. How precious.....and you must be dizzy from trying to keep Chumley in the picture. I laughed when I noticed his tail sometimes relaxed when he was intently studying or sniffing something.

  17. Chumley is a hoot -- everything at such a lovely mad dash! And then for a fraction of second his attention goes somewhere else and he is so still! The running round the edge of the pond sequence particularly made me chuckle. Wonder what your fish think - or do they even know or care?
