[photo challenge - week 49]

Week 48 - Pets Only!

When I saw this weeks challenge, there was no doubt in my mind which shot I would use. My Golden is my best subject since he sits still better then the 3 y/o. Everyone always asks if we drug him. He's the most mellow dog we've ever owned until you put a ball in front of him. Once you do that, you're done. You are his 'thrower' until he drops, which usually takes about 45 minutes of playing fetch.

This was one of the first pictures I got into Explore on Flickr. Reached #76 out of 500, so I was pretty stoked!

Yeah, I have a hard life...what of it?  *Explored*

Shot the Locash Cowboys last night at the Round Up. They put on a killer show and never disappoint! You can head to the Round Up's website for all the pictures.

Then I'll give you the run down on this one. Chris, the lead signer for Locash Cowboys, started 'pursuing' Kaitlyn about 2-3 years ago when the first played at The Round Up. She wanted nothing to do with him. About 1 1/2 years ago, they had the piano in the middle of the dance floor, Preston (the other signer), started playing, Chris went and got Kaitlyn to dance and that's all she wrote.

Anyways, before the concert last night, he asked her to marry him and she said yes. So they danced to the same song that they danced to the first time as he sang it to her. Everyone all together now...awwwwww lol

For the most part it was done in Lightroom. Original changed to "antique light", clarity bumped up, increased the blacks. Pulled it into CS3, added some noise and here you go.

And to add in my shameless plug of the week, all prints off my website are 15% off until December 31. Enter coupon code: HOLIDAY15 at check out :) Happy Holidays!!

[weekly winners - nov. 22-28]'s that time again for the winners of the week. Head over to the brain child of it all, Lotus, to see more. I know I'm breaking the rules a bit and will get the wrath because I did, but I had to share.

Since making this decision to go back to school, I've learned a lot about myself and often thought, wtf am I doing? This week I had to go through the 1000's of pictures that I have and pick 10 of my favorites to do a mock portfolio. This was harder then picking my kid's names.

Here's my 10, in no particular order
