Yes, this past weekend was Cudahy & Greater Racine KCs on the shores of lovely Lake Michigan. Made for an exhausting weekend, as I shot all day and then did a few photo shoots on the lake as well until we lost the light.
I think my best purchase in the past two weeks was the SportBrella, it's like giant umbrella that you can set on its side and stake down (and I needed those stakes sometimes!). Kept me out of the sun and more important on Monday, DRY! I think it was also a placemarker for the judges on Sunday as they kept sticking the table right in front of me! But sometimes adversity makes for some good shots so we'll see!
I will get to these as soon as I can, but as some of you know I'm still in June photos, so if you have a need for something because of a deadline, please let me know and I'll pull your photos out for you. They might not be edited, but it will give you an idea of what I have and then we can refine those photos you like.
Till next time, here are some of my favorites from the weekend (Sunday and Monday anyway, as Saturday's are still processing)
Just take a look at the wonderful lineup for BIS on Sunday at Greater Racine KC. Judge Rempel had her work cut out for her.
Best in Show was the Doberman, Fifi and one of her best pals, London the Standard Poodle was Reserve Best in Show.
|From a photo shoot on the lake around mid-day. When a bullmastiff wants to lay down, everyone with him has to lay down too!|
|Holley may kill me, but this was too funny not to share. What are the odds that I could get Holley and Daphne with this expression ever again!|
|From the Sunday show, the puppy dog gets a hug from his owner while waiting for his win photo :)|
The German Shepherd Dog bitch I would have loved to take home. She won the group from the classes on Sunday. Just gorgeous. Kent must be in great shape though because the breed judge had him go around the ring twice with every dog he showed!
This photo was taken as most of the photos for Monday groups .... in the rain!
|Look at this Smooth Collie show off in the driving rain, it's no wonder she picked up a Reserve BIS on Friday.|
|Whiskey the flying mastiff wasn't afraid of a little rain either and apparently neither was Chris Jones!|
