Erie Canal pictures!

So we were going to go over to Oakwood Cemetery today, which is a nice play to walk, usually has few people there, and is a wonderful place for Dahlia to run around off leash. She LOVES it there.

Except apparently they shut the place down if there's a game to stop people from parking there. Which ok, I get that. But um...shouldn't people who are going to the cemetery be allowed in? Fuck the game. I don't care about basketball! But we couldn't park there either despite the fact that we were pretty obviously NOT going to the game (hello? dog in car?). We also couldn't go to the Quarry because they let people park there for, you guessed it, THE GAME. So GAH. We drove around trying to figure out where to go instead of our usual Barry Park and ended up at a fairly quiet part of the Erie Canal park. We didn't want to go where everyone else would be (and seeing as how it's 50 degrees in January LOTS of people would be out). Thankfully the place we ended up only had a few people (and, unfortunately, a few snowmobiles...but they're not the same sort of folks as the ones up on the railroad tracks, the types who like to drive back and forth by people going really fast just to be assholes...anyway...).

Dahlia had SO MUCH FUN. It was all snowy and slushy so lots of good sniffing and running. I decided I was going to mostly use my 135mm f/2.8 lens (except for a few scenic shots) and it is SUCH a fabulous lens.

Awkward dog is awkward. I don't even know which leg goes where. o.O She was sniffing and suddenly found something interesting to sniff in a different direction and ended up all tangled up like some sort of pretzel dog.

I trimmed up her "pants." Look how skinny her legs are!

If you're wondering what the hell David is carrying, it's his Mamiya camera (medium format film). He took it out to get some nice scenic photos but the thing is in a fucking BRIEFCASE that weighs a ton.

Then she suddenly ran over and started bouncing around and pouncing on SOMETHING (that she did not catch). "It's down here somewhere Mom!"

Then we met some nice people and the woman knew how to talk to Dahlia and pet her. So that means, of course, TUGGING TIME!

Crazy eyes!

Looking wonderful as always. You really get some unique and great shots.

I have clearly spent too much time in the realm of health professions this last week, as I read "Erie Canal photos" as "ear canal photos..." lol.
