It is a huge week of agility here in 1st World Dog land. Mum has spent the 1st half of the week at the One Mind Dogs agility seminar and we are off to Sydney’s Royal Easter Show this weekend competing in the agility trial there (we did a guest post over on Puppy Tales in the lead up to the Royal about “What is Agility?” if you want to check it out).

Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge Week 5 – Let There Be Light

We read this week’s photo challenge blog post just before we headed out on our morning run. We are coming to the end of daylight savings so the light is only just breaking as we head off of on our. Mum got inspired by the filtered light at our turn around point and thought it might be good for this weeks light leek app challenge.

Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge – Week 4 – Iconic Beach Shot

Another fun week of the Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge. Really enjoying learning lots of new photo tricks. For this week on cut outs we were very conscious of taking Mrs P at We Live In A Flat’s advice on not making it look tacky. So instead we have taken inspiration from an iconic Australian image…

So here is our original…. holiday pic this week. Sunset on the Australian East Coast.

Here is our inspiration…. the iconic camel sunrise rides in Broome on Australia’s West Coast

We took Mrs P’s advice on Moldiv and also a bit of Photo Editor to try to blend in mum’s dodgy cut out attempt (she doesn’t have the steadiest hand) and also add the boarder.

Thanks again Mrs P at We Live In A Flat for all the effort she puts into teaching us about all these tools that are out there. Also Meghan at Firebonnet for co-hosting the challenge. We have lots of fun.


Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge – Week 3 – The Eyes

The Original


The Apped


We played with several different pictures this week and different effects with each. We decided on this one as it was a simple composition where the focal point were the eyes. The challenge was then what would enhance them and what would be a distraction. Hope you like what we chose.

Thanks Donna at We Live in a Flat and co-host Firebonnet for our weekly photo challenge.
