Too Dark

10 Jul

Bongo's FaceA few days ago I figured out the master plan.

And it worked – sort of.

You see, I decided to wait to take my person for walks until the sun is almost down and everything is in shadow.

That way there’s nothing for my person to take pictures of.

It’s too dark.

My person has been going along with the late walks because it’s not so hot outside.

But she still tries to take pictures.

Usually she gives up pretty quickly because it’s too dark for anything to turn out.

So today I did my best to stall my person until it got dark enough.

Notice, you don’t see a picture of me balking.

It was too dark.

And you don’t see any pictures of those late blooming prickly pear blossoms we saw.

It was too dark.

But something went wrong.


My person found something to take pictures of anyway.

Sunset over Chimney Rock

Sunset and Chimney Rock

Sunset behind Chimney Rock

And it wasn’t too dark.

Guess I’ve got to come up with another plan.

      Bacon, my person says thanks. But I might have to start taking her for walks after dark.

      Patrecia, I guess I do get to take my person for walks almost every day. But sometimes I wish she’d leave her camera at home. I think it’s attached to her. Oh, and my person says thanks for your comment about her pictures.

    Stubborn, singleminded Person! She cannot be stopped! Something has to be done about her eye for beauty. This has got to stop. Wait. What?

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, the only beauty my person should be looking at is me – and my friends. That means you.

    Ah, Bongo, maybe you should give up trying… she will always find something to make it look beautiful! Only solution … keep popping your nose in front of the lenses! That could work, plus we get more Bongo portraits! 🙂

      Marina, maybe I need a new hat. Photo bombing Bongo hat.

      Thanks Marty. But if we get too many of those sunsets I’m going to have to figure out how to turn them off.

      Mica, my person says thanks. Me, I think she should have put me in the foreground.

      Fredrieka, I’ve been mostly hiding in the air conditioned house until late in the day. It’s hot, hot, hot here right now. Except when it’s raining.

    The sunset is beautiful! Oh!……please do not stop your person taking pictures…we enjoy looking at all those works! You might want to find another way…not pictures…

      Thanks Angel Kevin. My person took some more pictures of the sunset last night (these were from two nights ago) that she put on her Facebook page.

        Bongo…I tried to look at the link your person put on but somehow I can’t open it….it got an error message on the screen…

        Kevin, apparently Facebook has a setting that only friends can see posts unless it’s changed to “Public” when it’s posted. If you put in a friend request to my person at you’ll be able to see the pictures. She’s going to be off Facebook (and my blog) for a few days after tomorrow morning, so if she doesn’t accept your friend request right away it’s not because she’s ignoring you.

      Thanks so much Kolytyi. I’ll be sure to hold this award tight so Scratchy and Gizmo can’t get near it.

    Maybe you should not wait so late so you can still come outside alot and be very happy on your adventures and just enjoy on what you love most on your walks and stay going on the great stories!

    • Bongo

      July 11, 2014 at 10:30 pm

      Quinlyn, it’s a hard balance between walks, pictures, and being too hot during the day this time of year. I’ll figure something out.
