    Went down to the park by the river again. Many people were out with their dogs. Took my shoes off and waded around in the river a bit with the A7 and Yashica ML Macro 55/4. Struck up a conversation with one of the dog owners and got some nice shots of his hounds romping about. While the A7 is by no means water proof I felt mostly reassured it could deal with the spray coming off the dogs as I shot them so close. All the water shots are with the Macro and the others are with the ML 50/1.7. Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did taking them. Oh, and the spider shot was on the Macro 55 as well.

    Another great set! They all draw my eye, but that Chihuahua's expression is priceless.

    Thanks for the comments everyone, this was a lot of fun to shoot. Your right Woodworks, I thought the same thing when I came across the Chihuaha picture as I was going thru them. And Bimjo, my A7 was only an inch or so above the flowing river when I shot liquidity. It was harrowing. :)
