Nerd gear: dogs and photography

I’ve been trying to figure out how to combine photography practice with dog walks.  Before today, it has consisted of:

Come.

Come.

Seriously.. come.  Here.  No, over here.

Sit.

Sit.

Good dogs!

[Put leashes on ground.]

Stay.

Staystaystaystay.

No!  Sit.  Staaaaaaay.

Good dogs!

[Compose.  Focus.]

Click!

[Pick up leashes.]

Let’s go!

Rinse. Repeat.

Until now!  I solved the problem with some gen-u-ine nerd gear:  a web belt and a large clip.

Now that is some seriously crappy photographic composition.  But you can see my nerd-gear dog-walking photo-practice hack.  And my ca. 1972 tennis racket.   Both the belt and the clip were available on amazon.com, with the interesting side effect that ordering the belt — which has oddly knife-shaped pouches that will be perfect for dog treats — put me in interesting company.

Guess the pouches weren’t specifically designed for dog treats.  Anyway, all in the service of my continuing efforts to learn how to use my Nifty Fifty.

    Ummmm…..places that sell climbing gear and/ or hiking gear in your fair city have that same outfit; in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors. Some include actual treat pouches- your mileage may vary….
