Ollie goes out for Chinese Food

Oliver always seems to get into a playful mood when we go out for dinner. I can always rely on him to make his funniest faces for me when we're in a restaurant.

He's an incurable ham...

These photos, by the way, were made with the Nikon D700 using the 51-point 3D dynamic auto-focus mode, which is excellent at tracking focus on a moving subject. Just focus on an eye and the AF module will select new focus-points dynamically as the subject moves around the field of view, maintaining focus on the eye. Considering that the depth-of field is extremely narrow here (given the very large f/1.4 aperture used in this dimly-lit restaurant) it's no small feat for the AF module to track focus on a subject that is not only moving laterally in a very quick, jerky fashion, but forward and backward, as well.
