The Post In Which I Redeem Myself, Photographically Speaking

Ok, so, maybe I am a failure at photographing a dog family.
This next photo is going to knock your socks off.

I searched through old photos last evening until I found this one:

Ava, Fagner, Duffy 2008

I took this photo 8 years ago for Dr. Becky.
This was her horse family at the time.
(Amazingly, the only one still alive is old Duffy who is somewhere in his thirties....
and I honestly think he was in his thirties when I took this photo.)

Are you impressed?  (Don't be.)

I should stop here and rest on my laurels, 
but because I always try to keep it real around here
I have to confess...

Here is the original photo:

See what I mean?
To photograph animal families posed together you need one of three things:
(as I said yesterday.... drugs, photoshop, or taxidermy.)
Photoshop is my drug of choice.

With digital programs such as Photoshop
you can make just about anything disappear or appear.
(Watch, while I pull a rabbit out of my hat!)

Too funny!! I guess where there's a will there's a way. I would prefer you just keep it real 😀.
Have a great weekend!!

You're funny... I haven't played in Photoshop for years. Maybe I should revisit it. Handsome horses all! Have a great weekend.

LOL Hi Bev...I love photoshop! I have to admit I haven't visited my favorite blogs in a very long time so it's wonderful to drop by and see how you and your family (human and critters) are getting along. How do you do it?? How do you post every day and get all the things done that you need to do?!! When I would do a post for my blog it would take me forever...taking photo's, picking my favorites, photoshopping if necessary, then writing something...whew it was hard work! Anyway, again I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job I think you do of everything in your life that you share with us. Thanks for the laughs and thrills! Take care. Maura
