Have you ever gone looking for certain photos on your camera card only to discover there more than 400 photos residing on that card? Time to clean up that camera card! It's silly to keep these images to oneself, especially if you meant to share them anyway.
It might be the nature of our profession, taking photos upon photos of our listings. Sometimes we're taking pictures of things special to our clients. Add to that, lots of us have developed a true love of capturing scenes and events on our cameras. It doesn’t take long to have a ton of pictures to have to wade through.
For me, I’ll take photos and have in my head something I want to do with them but that pesky making a living thing gets in my way. Take these photos of the adorable Basenjis for example. Our friends/clients bought a home through us early this year and then months ago they held their housewarming party. Yep, months ago! When we were searching for the right house, lots of criteria needed to be met. One of the most important things though was finding perfect environment for the pet family of which these two Basenjis are just part of.
Basenjis are a breed that we weren’t familiar with but always had heard that they have no bark. Kind of sounds like heaven on earth sometimes. While they may not bark in the manner we’re used to hearing they do make an interesting chortling sound. They require a goodly amount of space to burn off energy and the right place for that is at their new home in Franklin, NC.
These little guys have great short coats and are true athletes. They spend a lot of their time indoors with their “humies” but when outdoors they have a huge run. Our friends’ first priority was to set up a large fenced run. The Basenjis are such little devils though, it wasn’t sufficient to just put the chain link fence up, the fencers also had to lay in mechanics cloth along the base of the fence to keep the Basenjis from tunneling out to so called freedom where no doubt they would have met with or created all sorts of mayhem.
It's incredible to me that I even got these shots. The boys NEVER stopped moving. All six photos were taken within 30 seconds. Recently we got new photos by email from the Basenji parental units proving that these boys can sit still and pose for photos along with their non-Basenji brother.
Back to cleaning up the camera, finally I’ve gotten these pictures off the camera and am including them in this post. At long last I will get them to the rightful recipients, they were meant to be shared all along. We are very happy for our friends and wish them long time good fortune and good health in their beautiful new home not only for themselves but for their four legged family members.
Okay, back to cleaning up the camera card, today's been declared the day to forward on these little gifts for the folks I've been saving them for...it's going to take a lot of coffee!
