success or failure apparently brought by chance
rather than through one’s own actions.

In the early days we thought there

was an element of luck involved

when Candi caught her rope.

Her chosen…play toy.


However, as time progressed and

we managed to capture

this series of images…

…it became obvious that while there may be

an element of luck, there is far more concentration

and timing which one does not/cannot, see

from twenty or thirty yards arrears of her.



She does not react to a thrown ball

except for a half hearted chase

to be sure it is not fruit.

Her rope which, over the years has hit her hard

many times is her choice of toy.


Fandango’s One Word Challenge:…Luck




a synthetic material made from a wide range of organic polymers such as polyethylene, PVC, nylon, etc., that can be moulded into shape while soft,
and then set into a rigid or slightly elastic form.


A different look at plastic.

In Autumn of 2019 I was told that this was

a melanoma and not an age related spot.

In 2021 it looks like this and it took

three visits to the plastic surgeon

to get pathology clearances

around the wound.
