I can’t believe Gracie is still with me. She’s at least 16 now! She’s stiff and slow, but as eager as ever to be anywhere I am.
I had some Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400 in my Pentax ME, and my 50mm f/2 SMC Pentax-M lens was attached. I had a few shots left on the roll and decided to burn them off so I could get the film processed. Gracie was delighted to follow me out into the yard, my favorite photographic venue. (Seriously. I take more pictures at home than anywhere else.) We’d gotten a big dumping of snow; my sons and I had cleared the driveway the day before. As Gracie and I walked out onto the driveway, a big wind gust blew snow off the roof and onto both of us. Gracie, being a dog, was undaunted. I snapped this shot of her right away.
