Happy Dogs

Nothing warms the heart like happy dogs playing in the sunshine. This is Hallie having a great time with the ball. I’m sure that my fun-loving ganaraskan, Louis is one of the happiest dog ever. He makes me smile and laugh every day. I couldn’t imagine my life without him! Next up in the weekly…

    I have noticed that when dogs are REALLY overwhelmed with contentment and happiness, they turn upside down, much like in your first photo.  It runs across breeds and genders. Great, happy photos!ReplyCancel

Bokeh is the filtering of light behind the subject to form appealing patterns of light. In this image, the sunlight behind Louis is being filtered by the roses and shrubs in the garden to create beautiful circular areas. A wide aperture of 2.8 was used for a shallow depth of field. I positioned Louis close…

    Love the flower Bokeh, that tag is perfect. Gorgeous image !!!ReplyCancel

    I think flowers in the background often do make/contribute to a great bokeh! Sometimes even little clover flowers look like pin points of light in a photo. ReplyCancel

      Thanks, Elaine. I never thought of the flowers until I saw the sun shining through my roses!ReplyCancel

    Love the capture of the colors in the bokeh!  And the way Louis’ collar stands out is perfect!  Great job!  Adorable pooch!ReplyCancel

    Lovely bokeh!  ( I can’t help but think about skiiing in the Collingwood  area and long weekends at Wasaga beach every time I see your location! )ReplyCancel

A Day in the Life

After breakfast, Elijah has a dental treat to help clean his teeth. However, as he showed my in this photo, there was nothing left after two bites…so much for the cleaning! Next we headed to the dog park for some socialization and fun. At the end of the day, Elijah looks forward to having his dinner…


Through Their Eyes

This week’s challenge is to capture images through the eyes of our pets. Sean is sitting on the sofa observing the baby of the house having a great time with her book.  I wonder what goes through his mind as he patiently watches and waits. Next check out Sydney & MAC Creative Designs  in Fairfax, Virginia…
