Flippy Flopper Fun!

Kipp would like to invite all of you to experience his one true love. Playing Frisbee.

We decided to take a little trip to the park because I've been dying to use my new Canon Rebel that I got for Christmas!! And as long as we were going, I might as well try my hand at some action shots and bring the Flippy Flopper Frisbees. I've never had much luck taking action shots with old camera because they would always turn out blurry. Let's see what we can do...

Kipp always makes it look easy.

I don't know if he will ever wait for a frisbee to get closer to the ground to catch...he always jumps to catch them.

And makes it look so smoooooth.

Boing and chomp!

This is as close as he gets to the ground, but still all 4 feet off the floor.

Roxy says, 'HEY! What about me? I catch Frisbee's too!!! Sometimes I try to catch them with my hands even.'

And this my friends, is why we could never have named her Grace.

Rockstar has a tendency to run too fast so then she has to turn around to catch the Frisbee before it hits the ground. And this is what is looks like when captured in a freeze frame.

'Mom, I got it!!! LOOOOOOK!'

Trying to take lessons from her little brother...she attempts to jump like a real dog with all 4 feet off the ground, and aiming just her face at the Frisbee. Hmmmm, not working so well, is it Roo?

Getting closer Rockstar-you can do it!!!

Doh, back to her old antics. But hey-at least she caught it! Good girl Rockstar.

Oh no, she didn't!! Look at her go! A textbook catch by my little Roo!!

And can I even tell you how much I LOVE my new camera?! Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, LOVE!!!

Hahaha, love the Rockstar bloopers - it makes me feel not so bad about the similar style Ouzo is using to catch frisbees :) Great pictures, Amy!

Kimberly said...

So, do you like the new camera? At all? Surely it has at least one redeeming quality?

I miss my doggie niece and nephew. Though at least I get to see pictures of them while I'm gone. You should take pics of my real live boy nephew too. ;-)

I love the pics of Roxy catching the frisbee! They're great! I'm really, really jealous about your new camera. (Oh well, maybe one day.)

Anda, I don't think I've ever seen more than one picture of Ouzo looking silly. I think he is too handsome for that! :)

Kimberly-I will try and do this request you ask...but you know he isn't always a fan of having his photo taken.

Deb, Thanks! She tries really hard and that's all you can ask. ;)

Awesome new gift! You will love the Rebel!

Great shots Amy!

I wish we would get some snow, it does make a fantastic background for action shots.

Are those taken with the kit lens?

Rockstar and Kipp said...

These ones weren't. I took these with the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS. I love it so far. I've taken some other indoor ones with the kit lens that I will have to post soon. I have just been working on wedding planning, I haven't updated as much as I would like on here. :)
