I met a dog today…

Little (I mean: small), loooong, black and white, sometimes loud but most of all… veeeery cute!Β  I took many pictures of him, because it was hard not to.

When I saw him I just couldn’t resist. I had take my camera out and snap some pictures. He didn’t like the camera, though… but a few doggy treats did the job… as you can see πŸ™‚

and I wasn’t sure which one to use for this post because I really like both…

Most of my pictures of him came up really dark; too dark. I had to “hire” my beloved GIMP, as always irreplaceable πŸ˜‰

BEFORE the edit

Adjusted color levels and…

… and added LOMO “script” (for photshop users “action”)

And there he is.

Isn’t he cute !?!?!

But the best is yet to come!

At the end

he gave me






hugs from my corner, everybody!

Just walk…

If you feel bad, just walk.

If you feel happy, just walk.

If you feel angry, just walk.

Walk is better than talk…

Yep… It is!

I don’t believe in talk…

Yep, I really don’t !

I believe in therapy walk!

Walk is always fun!

Even more fun with a camera in your hand!

This walk started from our daughter’s “whining” sounds. She saw the stroller outside and she couldn’t stop banging on the window, so we went for a walk. I think that’s what she wanted πŸ™‚

She is always hungry so we took her spoon with us, too bad she lost it on the way. No more taking spoons for a walk !!!! πŸ˜‰

Of course pictures taking is indisputable. There is always time to take a picture of something, enything. Many times it’s a plant or a tree. Mostly something that weΒ  really like but we don’t know the name.

I take my pictures for fun. He, in order to upload it to some kind of “gardening forum“. He always post those pictures and people from this forum tell him what that is… Nice πŸ™‚

And I take them (I mean – pictures) to have something to do in addition to being a mom and a wife. It makes me feel better… it make me feel busy-ier πŸ˜‰

… and be honest with you they are not always amazing and beautiful. it takes time and some effort to change them into something decent and wow-like πŸ˜‰ My husband always says that I really really like taking pictures, but after I upload them to my computer the real fun begins – editing !!!

this is how the picture above looked before editing

Talking about before and after let me just post a link to a one of my weekly photo challenges, and sign in for this week πŸ™‚

That’s how our last walk went… I hope you enjoyed it, too!

It’s much better to enjoy it yourself, so get up, dress up (if it’s cold outside) and take the first step… ah… and don’t forget your camera… it doesn’t have to be any fancy one… gΕ‚uptak will do the job, too. πŸ˜‰
