It was a beautiful fall day – warm but crisp and sandwiched between endless cold and wet ones. The weather turned out perfectly for walking around Sunnybrook Park and taking photos of my friend’s 6-month old puppy.
This bridge was a lovely entrance into the wooded area of the park. I never knew that Sunnybrook Park had a large wooded space with trails. I came here once for my first 5k run but that was centralized to an open field-like area.
This is Koda, my friend’s 6-month old Australian Shepherd.
This is my friend, Andrea. I’ve known her since we were in Grade 1. If you grew up without a dog as part of your family, you’ve probably wanted one at some point in your life. Most families never waver in their decision to be dog-less, but years later at 23, Andrea fulfilled the dream!
Off-leash and excited, it was Koda’s first time running around and experiencing the satisfying crunch of leaves under-paw.
All in all, it was a beautiful day to go for a walk and practice my shooting. It was definitely tricky to compose good shots with Koda running around all over the place, but I think I managed to get a few good ones.
