These were taken on the islands outside of Stavanger, and at Bogsteinen on the other side of Gandsfjord. I used Graeme's La Sardinia camera with 35 mm film. I've actually managed to break this camera since these were taken, and it's currently being held together by a band aid and I'm not sure it's actually usable anymore. So sad! :( Think we'll defintately have to replace this camera, as I love how dreamy the images come out. That double exposure of Graeme feeding a swan in the sky is my favorite!

It was pretty simple to modify the original Pickles pattern into a cowl pattern, and since you're knitting on such big needles these were done in no time at all--I managed to fire out three of these the last week before Christmas (while also fitting in a weekend trip to my friend's cabin, Christmas baking and shopping!). They're super cozy, and I'm now also very tempted to make one for myself. Or ten. Or one in every color. I might need to get an extra wardrobe for my future cowl collection.

Trial two was a simplified version (that I'm not entirely sure why we didn't try first?), where we just attached the camera to her collar. The results were perhaps a little better, though instead of her ears, you'd see the underside of her mouth (awesome view for when she was dangling after a ball I was holding). The main issue though, was how much the camera would jump as she ran, and the fact that her wee legs were just not long enough—the camera was restricting her movement a bit.
So we did a bit of research and came across the GoPro Fetch dog mount, and I excitedly bought this for her for Christmas (what do you mean this is actually a present for me and Graeme?). It fits her much better (though still a bit big, Bo's pretty small for our breed), and it doesn't seem to bother her at all when she's wearing it. We did a test run at the dog park, and watching the video afterwards cracks me up! We look like giants walking next to her. But without any further ado, here is the world according to Bo:
