Taken at the Bronx Zoo, New York City back in November, 2010 with a Fujifilm Finepix HS10. I was never able to relate to this camera, used it only a couple of times and eventually gave it to my brother in law.

In the right circumstances though it was able come up with a decent picture although if you ‘pixel peep’ you’ll see that it suffers from the “smearing”, “watercolor” look typical of small sensor cameras.


In the morning our dog will jump on the bed and try to lick my face. If successful he’ll lick for a while and then pull back at bit – as if to examine his work and to decide whether or not he’d got everything. Then if necessary he’ll go back and lick some more. This is what he’s doing here.

He was lying on my chest so I couldn’t move to get any camera other than that on my iphone. I couldn’t really see what I was doing so I took lots of pictures, moving the iphone around as I did.

While technically this isn’t a great picture (soft, blurry, noisy etc.) I like it, partly because of the different angle. I don’t usually see him from this perspective.

Taken with an iphone 5s.
