Sydney photo frenzy...  
Spent the better part of my morning with my digital camera in poor Sydney's face. She hates the camera with a passion now and will run away from it. I can't understand it since I never use the flash when I photograph her and I've turned off the sound to my digital. Nevertheless it's turned from "play time" into "let's run under the table out of camera range" time recently when my camera comes out. :(

I managed to take one photo of her begging for food which I love because she has those sad puppy-dog eyes that she uses to get sympathy from us (and eventually part of our meals). :P The others were taken last weekend when I was trying to get new expressions on film, etc. The lighting is really bad on some of these and I'd hardly call it flattering for poor Sydney, but I thought I'd post them anyway.

How could anyone say no to those eyes? ;)

Not the most flattering... Only a mother could love these. :)

The lighting was SO bad on this one (I wasn't even looking through the viewfinder) but she has such a cute expression and it's how she always sleeps. :)

Other than that, Mark & I went to the market and Mark found scrapple (which I'd only seen for the first time today) Despite our diets, he had to get it since it was the first time he claims he's ever seen it in Hawaii. Looks nasty to me! :P Blech!

Tomorrow I start my week long web class at CTA. I'm looking forward to it and hoping that it gives me some motivation to start doing something creative again.

I do love the first one. I've never posted any of the really horrid ones I have of Tess. She either gets bored with the camera and sulks or wants to stick her nose on the lens and lick it. The number of times I've ended up with a great big lick mark across the front of the filter.

I kind of like the one that I caught her in mid-yawn, though. :) I'm really not much for the standard pictures that don't show the dog's personality at all - which is why I love these - even though it may not be the standard flattering photos...

the pictures are too cute! I especially like the last one! oh soooo cute!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 2nd, 2004 12:44 am (UTC)
Thanks Smitha! :) I wish that I could've taken it in better light - she was facing the wrong way... what a shame! :( Thanks for your sweet comments! :)

Those are all very cute pictures actually. :) The first and last are my favorites though.
Sheri: Sydney is...shutterbug93 on August 2nd, 2004 12:46 am (UTC)
Thanks Laura! You should post more photos of Brock! He must be much bigger, and I'd love to see what he looks like now. :)

What great pictures!!! She is a cutie! I love her nose! :D

Mark wanted scrapple? Scrapple??? Ewwww! What is up with him? First frog legs and now this?? Scrapple looks like someone cleaned the sink trap after grinding up a week's worth of stuff and then they took it all & gelled it.
Sheri: Sheri - wink yahoo iconshutterbug93 on August 2nd, 2004 10:35 pm (UTC)
Awww, thanks Rita! :) She's certainly got a nose on her! ;)

Haha! I never knew what scrapple was before this weekend. When Mark said it was "pig parts" I thought I was going to be sick. :P He likes food that I'd never try, but it probably has something to do with the fact that he was born without a sense of smell. ;)

Here's another sheltie lover! Adorable!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 2nd, 2004 10:35 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :) I want to see more pictures of Into! :) It's been way too long!
Arjaycrazyarjay on August 2nd, 2004 06:48 am (UTC)
Awwww. She's adorable. :) Now I'm going to have to post some pictures of my parents' sheltie. :)
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 2nd, 2004 10:36 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much. :) Yes! You should post some photos of your parents' sheltie! :) I'd love to see them! :)

These are great pictures! I especially like the first and the last one. Syndey is adorable!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 2nd, 2004 10:37 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you! :) And I love your icon of Michi, it's adorable!! :)
Sabine: Regensabine10 on August 2nd, 2004 01:15 pm (UTC)
That are great photos of Sydney. I esp. love the last one. It made me wish I could hug her. :) Thanks for sharing them, Sheri. Hope you will enjoy your web class.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 2nd, 2004 10:39 pm (UTC)
Awww, thanks Sabine! :) That's so sweet of you to say! :) And I love my web class! I think I forgot HOW much I love web design. :) *HUGS* to you and one for Lauser too! :)

Awwwww how cute. :) I didn't get a chance to look at them this morning. But I have a picture of my sheltie I had growing up on my webpage (I'll try and post it below) and Sydney has much the same coloring. And that's actually crazyarjay's parents' sheltie in my icon there but he's got much cuter pictures of her. :) I probably have a couple on my hard drive too somewhere. I'll try and see if this image posting works... Su-Su is the Sheltie and Fluffy is the Bichon.

Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 2nd, 2004 10:40 pm (UTC)
Oh my goodness! Su-Su and Fluffy are adorable!! :D I love the innocent smiles they both seem to have in the photo. They're gorgeous! :)

I love the pics! I really have to post some of Mort. It's funny, but Mort makes all of those same faces and poses. It must be a "Sheltie thing"!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 3rd, 2004 09:24 am (UTC)
YAY! Please post some photos of Mortie! :D I'd love to see them!! :) And the faces and poses must be a sheltie thing!
