There's nothing like having a lunch date with your old "man". But in this case my old man happened to be Ernie the day before he went in to have his teeth removed. I figure he should at least have one last go at being able to chew as much as possible! Funny, but not, considering he had 6 teeth pulled. So, here are a few pictures of our lunch date showing his face before ice cream, and the goofy little smile he had after he had a bite of Three Twins Ice Cream. Actually, we both had the same goofy smile because it was just that good!
Do you ever take your dog out for a special day alone? I love taking one dog out at a time, sometimes because it is just easier to navigate through a public space, but mainly because each dog enjoys a day alone and their personalities are certainly different when they don't have backup around! Ernie is happy-go-lucky no matter what and loves to go into all the shops and say "hi" to everyone. So that's exactly what we did, and he had a grand time!
On another note, do you use PS actions? I am trying to take better photographs but I found The Coffee Shop Blog a while ago and decided to try out the Coffee Shop Peachy Glow action on these pictures. Even though I like how they turned out (and I do appreciate the effort and the fact that the actions are free, don't get me wrong, she's talented!) I'm really on the fence. Is it better to be a purist and attempt to take a great picture in the first place that needs slight enhancements, or is it acceptable to manipulate your photographs significantly? Hmmm. Still on the fence.
