Highland Games

The Highland Games are taking place this weekend. Last year we went and had a good time. This year I actually took my camera and got a few pictures.

The day was overcast, so I didn’t take that many photos. Here are my favorites.

This is a Highland cattle which is a Scottish cattle breed.

I stopped and watched a spinning demonstration. I love this picture as one generation shows another one something special.

This border collie stole our hearts. He was at one booth and was just so friendly.

He would bring his toy, drop it between your feet, and then stare intently at it until you threw it for him. Then he would – more often than not – catch it in mid-air.

I should have taken more photos, but there was quite a crowd making if difficult to have moments to take pictures. I am glad I brought it as I want to get into the habit of bringing my camera with me more places. Also I picked up this tip by people watching which might be common sense to some but maybe not everyone. I always wear my camera around my neck which can get quite uncomfortable. I saw a gentleman wearing his camera over his shoulder much like how you would wear a purse. I tried this technique, and my camera was so much more comfortable and not annoying at all.

It was a fun day. Not sure what photo taking adventures will happen tomorrow, but looking forward to it.
