She would never say where she came from
Yesterday don’t matter if it’s gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows, she comes and goes
Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you
– Rolling Stones
I learned a very valuable lesson while trying to capture some images of our very own Ruby Tuesday – don’t force and don’t become impatient because a stressed model will result in fake, uncomfortable looking poses.
Unlike Paddington, who adores being in the limelight and showing off in front of the lens, Ruby is very camera shy and I just could not get her to pose the way I wanted her to. It took a while to for me to realise that I needed to stop trying to force her to do things and to just let her be. As soon as the pressure was off she relaxed and the outcome was more natural looking poses that reflect her quiet, yet quirky personality.
I love the dramatic lighting in this image
Ruby – a consummate relaxologist.
All my love

I like the name.
We adopted her when she was about 18 months old and her name was originally Dobie but we didn’t think it suited her at all so we changed it to Ruby Tuesday, Ruby for short, Rubino when we’re in an Italian mood…
Ah, thanks for a bit of the history behind the name. A good choice.
I agree with Margi above, Ruby has always had such soulful eyes. 🙂 I do miss them
Wonderful shots of your shy pup. The second one reminds me of photos I’ve take of my Nina, who is usually a live wire, but every once in a while she pauses at my feet and I’m able to get a nice shot of her.
Ta muchly Carissa 🙂
Her expressions are, as always, so filled with emotion Moi and you have captured those feelings so well….Great shots my friend.
Ol’Rubes, shame her neck is sore today so she is not a happy girl, I have to keep massaging her. 😦
Cute but amazed at how grey she has gone suddenly!! Or is it my imagination.
Hope your well and happy
Thanks Sara, yes she has gone grey quite quickly but mostly on her chin which you don’t see unless she is lying down. We are all well and happy 🙂
Since when did our ruby get grey hair! It’s only been just over a year since we saw her. Beautiful shots as always M.
Have just email you my homework!
Have a happy weekend.
🙂 Mandy xo
I know, poor Rubes she has got lots of grey hairs since we arrived back in SA, maybe it was the stress of moving? Even Padinski is fairly grey now too!
