17th August 2013 - yummy mummy 2

OK, OK, this is shamelessly staged!

Once upon a time when a different “little girl” was my little girl I did a similar shot for my PaD. Now that little girl is gone and I have a new little girl I wanted to redo the shot for no other reason that the gratuitous pleasure of taking a photo of her “loving me”. I’ve been planning to do it for weeks but it’s not easy to set up.

Today I was looking at my viewing stats and noticed a different picture of Rosie (the little girl who is gone) had been getting a lot of hits in the last 24 hours. It always puzzles me why an image from a long-finished gallery suddenly starts to get noticed again so I clicked onto it to remind myself of the day’s story, which was about a homecoming and the deep pleasure of getting loved by the dogs just because I’d been away. In fact, that homecoming was from the USA and within days I was off again, first to Madrid, then back home, then to Barcelona, all in the space of 2-3 weeks. That life is so far behind me but reading those entries makes the misery of the old life come rushing to the fore. Now I know that even with no jobs and even with nothing clear about our future, I am certain that this is so much better than the old life. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that.

So, after looking back at my beautiful Rosie, it brought the thoughts of a rework of that photo back into my mind and I decided that there is not time like the present and there is no shame in revisiting old work. So, here is Lola treating me like the most yummy mummy on the planet but of course it’s the honey on my fingers that’s really yummy!

Superb shot of Lola doing the only thing that can be done with a sticky finger.

Wonderful shot. And I have sweet memories of Rosie too.

She looks like a completely white dog from this angle.
