Merry Christmas From Phil and Ruby by phil_howcroft

Merry Christmas From Phil and Ruby

This is me and my best friend Ruby (I always say my only friend !)

Ruby wearing her Christmas scarf and jingle bell fluffy collar.
Phil wearing his Christmas jumper.

That's my trellis in the background, not the best of backdrops, but just about the area of best natural light in the garden for a grey December afternoon when the light was fading fast.

This was shot by Jane on my Canon 60D and nifty fifty lens, not a vintage lens in sight !!! Full shooting instructions beforehand ("make sure the red dot is on one of my eyes").

I tried to get Ruby to pop her ears up, in trademark Ruby style, but she wasn't having it. I'd woke her up from an afternoon snooze to take the photo. She is however giving quite a look to the camera, maybe a mix of elegant with attitude.

To all my 365 friends, past, present and future, I thank you for all your faves, comments and views on my photos. I thank you all for your virtual friendship, I think that's what makes 365 a nice place.... the people you get to know :)

Anyway, seasons greetings, I hope 2020 is good to all of you.



Fav for that "look" and smile.
