Fun in the Sun

I have a lot of favorite images of Jack Henry, but this one is very special-it was taken the other day when he was enjoying his first real sun-bath of the season. The image says it all I think–

Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge-Week 9

Holy Hubbles! We are two-thirds of the way through the Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge-

This week’s challenge from JX at weliveinaflat.com and Meghan at firebonnet.com is Double Exposures. To learn more about this week’s challenge and the Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge, visit here.

I still struggle with Double Exposures-my once favorite go-to app Night Camera does not quite do the trick anymore ever since the last update. For this week’s challenge, I did try Night Camera again and came up with this shot of Master Jack Henry which I then processed with Snapseed and PhotoToaster:

My next experiment was with Image Blender which I have had pretty good results with in the past-here is Jack Henry with a pile of pea gravel-I was looking for something that would evoke a mosaic-type double exposure-

In the end, I am not sure if I succeeded in either case of doing a successful double exposure, but the experimenting was fun anyway-

and we have not forgotten Today’s Dog Quote:

“There’s often a reason why people and dogs bite. It’s about self-protection. If we respect what we may not know about the suffering of others and look at them compassionately, we open the door that can lead to understanding.” 
― Jennifer Skiff, The Divinity of Dogs: True Stories of Miracles Inspired by Man’s Best Friend

comes one very early portrait of Jack Henry-he was probably about 1 1/2 when this was taken. Hopefully we (meaning I because we all know Jack Henry is perfection itself) have improved.

Today’s Dog Quote: 

“We meet wonderful people, but lose them 
in our busyness. 
We’re, as the saying goes, all over the place.
Steadfastness, it seems, 
is more about dogs than about us. 
One of the reasons we love them so much.” 
― Mary Oliver, Dog Songs

Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge-Week 8

This week’s challenge from JX at weliveinaflat.com and Meghan at firebonnet.com is Mirroring. To learn more about this week’s challenge and the Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge, visit here.

JX mentioned a couple of different apps to explore mirror effects. But I decided to use the mirror image found in one of my favorite apps-Picture Show. And demonstrating the possibilities of this particular effect is Master Hubble. One image is the original taken of Hubble which was cleaned up a bit and then processed with Mirror in Picture Show. I kind of like how it turned out-it looks like Hubble(s) are looking into something deep and magical?

Today We Are One . . .

well, almost- April 1 2013 marked the first published post of Little Dogs Laughed-since then, Jack Henry, Hubble, and Anna have worked hard to bring a bit of levity and dog wisdom to my life- So here are Jack Henry and Hubble getting ready to party in anticipation of Little Dogs Laughed One-Year Anniversary-

A most grateful thanks to all of our followers and visitors who have stopped by-and we look forward to seeing what the coming year will bring-

Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge-Week 7

Week 7 of the Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge hosted by JX of weliveinaflat and Meghan at firebonnet-to learn more about the challenge (there are 5 weeks left!) check out the particulars here.

This week’s challenge was Sketch and I found an app that I really like, thanks to JX’s recommendations. Camera 360 is a free app and thankfully is pretty free of ads. There are a lot of free filters you can choose from too which is always a bonus.

This week’s image courtesy of Hubble and a giant apple I found a few weeks back. Shown here is the original image cleaned up a bit by Snapseed and then two examples of Sketch effects from Camera 360-the lighter colored one used a filter called “Bright” and the more dramatic colored sketch filter is “Color.”

sort of with a small tangerine, as Hubble grapples with the concepts of space and shape . . .

Today’s Dog Quote:

I talk to him when I’m lonesome like; and I’m sure he understands.  When he looks at me so attentively,

and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat.  For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that.
