In every challenge there is a tipping point at which time you start to feel some optimism that the end can be reached. That precedes a triple fork in the road,
One path leads to completion and success, one to failure, starting over again and learning from that. Then there is that third path that goes nowhere because you cannot accept the lessons and don’t want to keep trying.
There is nothing wrong with failing. Nothing. Ever.
Miles Aldridge is this week’s folio share
Listening to Hozier
Let’s face it. Not much photography taking place right now so all I have to share is dog news.
Progress is good. Scars are healing and we have enlisted the help of trainer to iron out the behavior issues. We are able to let him off lead in the yard but can’t leave him alone for long. Things that can get chewed have been moved out of reach.
Chew toys don’t last long around here and this one is less than a day old and already missing a tail. Documenting their destruction might make an interesting project.
I did not attend the ANZAC day dawn service this year as planned. We spent most of the weekend working out how to manage our new four legged family member.

Listening to the Dandy Warhols
Never met a dog that didn’t want to chew on something. We figured he needed to catch up on lost puppy time, so play is becoming an important part of the new routine.
It’s easiest to photograph him when he’s asleep. Lenses don’t get licked that way…
I have come to the conclusion that dogs return far more than is put into them but I’m putting a lot in right now. That comes at the expense of doing other things of course.

Watching hot air balloons float past your office window as the sun rises… That’s one good reason to get to work early in Melbourne.
Rescue dogs have a range of issues to resolve and needs to be met and it will take a while for that to happen so the focus has been on working out how to make this work. Everything else gets back seat for the time being so apologies if the posts are a little lower in quality and frequency (and for all the dog photos).
I did have time for one folio. Tim Walker is a portriatist who makes his own rules
