A girl and her dog

A couple of weekends ago, I visited my friends in Jersey. Adrienne had just gotten a new dog and I'd yet to meet the new pup. While I was there, we had a relaxing couple of days and even though it rained most of the time, we managed to take a walk in a local park and get some pictures of Josie the Wonder Pup when the sun miraculously came out for a bit. For this picture, I used the fake duotone effect I learned from Scott Kelby's CS2 Photoshop book which can be found in this post that I published recently. I really like how this photo turned out. Earlier this week, I was busy working on drafts for a couple of future posts (like today's), while I'm on Spring Break. Because I'm not travelling anywhere, I'd scheduled all sorts of fun things to do this week which included going to the dentist (gah) as well as an endoscopy on my knee (joy and rapture). Since I'll be laid up with the knee thing for a little while, I had been trying to get in as much walking as I could and stocking up on my picture files. You never know when they'll come in handy. Such as this one, of a girl and her dog. They make a happy couple, don't they? Here's the original photo below, along with the other two I liked. I really like them better in the duotone effect, if I must say so myself. The Weekend Guessing Game will return next Friday. I totally forgot about it this week! Please forgive my relapse. It must be the pain pills I'm on . . . (yes, let's blame it on the pain pills.)
