My philosophic boy
Well, to be honest, that’s a huge lie…..
Bordercollie – philosophic, no way….
But in these photos he actually looks that way, calm and satisfied. He really likes to sit on this little jetty and look out over the lake. And then of course, I have to take the opportunity to perpetuate this rare moment.
My darling dog, Filip, 7 years old, and actually quite happy!
I love these images–I also love border collies!
Thank you very much! Yes, they are wonderful dogs, very demanding yet so gorgeous, never a dull moment.
A perfect picture of contentment.
Thanks a lot Carol. You should how many faces he has, hope to catch more of them. I’m just not fast enough. 😉
Border collies can look amazingly philosophical, but I suspect that most of the philosophy consists of ‘ways to get something to eat’. Filip looks like a real prince! I like that almost graphic quality of the out-of-focus area in the first picture.
Lol! Yes, he is actually not that interested of finding food on his own, my guess is that he is content just because he knows exactly where I and my other two dogs are at the moment. We are his herd, and when we’re out he has taken on the job to keep us all together, even though I’m his leader. He has a very tough work, the other two are sheltie girls, also herding dogs, AND girls, and they don’t like at all being herded by him! 😀
Thank you B!
I like that area very much too! I guess I had set a large aperture to get that shallow dof, this little camera never stop surprising me, it is awesome!
What a gorgeous fellow, and great shots of your favourite friend.
Thank you Sue! Yes he is gorgeous. I also have two little sheltie girls, but Filip demanded a post of his own! 😉
Beautiful shots of your handsome friend 🙂
Thank you for dropping by mu blog earlier.
Thank you too! 🙂
Another picture of great serenity. Very pleasant.
Thank you Steve!
I’m impressed you can get your collie to sit still at all. My border collie doesn’t understand ‘calm’. Lovely photo’s.
Hehe, mine didn’t do that either until he was about 4+.. Selective hearing, oh yes!
This is our mantra; “We take it easy and it will be okay”. “We take it easy and it will be okay”….. and so on and on and on….. 😀
Thank you John!
What a stoic beauty he is. 🙂
Thank you very much Liesl! Yes, he is special.
Love the first one 🙂 That look in his eyes… as if he would be wondering what is behind the horizon 🙂
Yes, it is kinda nice to see my dog so calm and relaxed in a photo, irl he stays in this mood for just seconds, but here he looks very pleased for some reason… 🙂
Thank you very much for your kind comment. Have a great sunday!
A dog that is so easy to love….
Hehe, yes he is a rather cute fellow, I have had him since he was a puppy, and I’m truly love him from the bottom of my heart, but I can assure you that he for sure ain’t no walk in the park….. 😉
