sunday selections - eyes

I was inspired by a photo of a snakes eye by frogpondsrock as part of her Sunday Selections project to post these to photos.

First up is juniordwarf. This was an experiment with saturation and lighting. There were too many colours in the original photo for it to be cohesive, but I love it so much that I wanted to make it more interesting to look at. It's not one I want to keep filed away on the computer. This is one version.

Second is sleepydog. I took this photo for a 'macro' photo challenge on the scrapbooking and cardmaking forum that I'm a member of. Anyone who knows sleepydog knows that to get her to sit still for more than two seconds is a rare feat indeed, so that fact that I got a photo at all is nothing short of miraculous. That it's (I think) a pretty good shot is a bonus.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that a colleague told me that many treats had been used in getting a posed picture of her dog. Treats. Why didn't I think of that?


  1. Great photos, I'm really enjoying this sunday selections thing.

  2. I love the photo of juniordwarf!

    I have the same problem trying to get Maisy, our dog, to sit still for photos.

  3. Lovely photos. I am so pleased you used the snake eyes as inspiration because the top photo of juniordwarf is fantastic. Dogs are almost impossible to capture :)


Hi! I know you hate having to type in the words as much as I do, but I am being furiously spammed, so I've had to reactivate that feature. If you're a real person I'd love to hear from you :-)
