An Aussie Bloke & His Companion Dog by 

Roger (a retired Vietnam Veteran) and Gemini (his best mate) were standing on the rocks at the break-wall of Tallebudgera Creek Entrance. I took two candids before asking them to stay still. As soon as the camera went ‘click’ Gemini jumped down knowing I was done. A tourist behind me was amazed that the dog was so well trained. I had to laugh, I have been photographing these two best friends since Gemini was 6 weeks young (he is now three).

Canon EOS 1000D
Canon EFS zoom lens 55-250mm
f8,1/250sec, ISO 100, focal length 55mm

Hi, my name is Robyn J. Blackford. I am a retired nurse who loves photography, pyrography and writing. I live with my husband in the rainforest of Tallebudgera Valley in Queensland, Australia.

All my photos are what I see through the lens.
