Sunday Heidi Weimaraner Update: 13 Months Old.

Heidi is 13 months old now.

I've done a few test shots for a new photographic technique. When Heidi was a wee tot, I could run along in front of her, taking plenty of interesting action shots in the process.

But then she got speed.

On my bike, I've clocked her at above 25 miles per hour. She is so fast, she literally makes me eat dirt. And gravel.

I can't run 25 mph an hour. Or even 15 mph. But I can ride that fast and still-- sort of-- position the camera appropriately. So, here's one shot from the bike, going ~13 mph:

Hopefully I'll get better at this, because this technique could produce some great shots. Or I could just tumble face-first over my handle bars and break camera and/or arm. Who knows.

Here is another:

This past month, Heidi survived the big ice storm:

And the post-storm ice melt:

She doesn't mind the cold or wet, but she sure likes it when it's warm and dry:

And after running several miles, she sometimes even sits still without anyone asking her to do so:

Incidentally, with the exception of the "ice storm" picture, all of the pictures were snapped with an Olympus Stylus digital camera.

Heidi, you are sooooooo cute!...

I think that tumble-thing is pretty likely. The real film here may be of you, not by you.

Hay, Will! I Love the new Heidi post cards at cafe express! You didn't tell me...
