Dog Blog Post #448: Well today's Daily Shoot assignment didn't seem to hold much promise when I read it late last night...

Friday: Make a photograph that conveys or illustrates a sense of music.

... and I so I held my real Daily Shoot offering for the day so I would have something decent for the Blog Hop.

And then inspiration struck...

Henry even accepted the Evil Jingle Collar without comment...

Jingle Bells


As for yesterday's Daily Shoot, I still think it came out pretty cool...

Dogs' Life


Here's the description I put in flickr...

Daily Shoot (#ds669) - "Go old-school today and make a photograph that either features an old subject or simply looks old."

Was trying for something Norman Rockwell-ish. Admittedly, I didn't get there, but I got closer than I thought I would. :)

ODC - September 14, 2011 - Beginning

Norman Rockwell was a big supporter of the Boy Scouts, and created 54 covers for their magazine, Boys' Life, between 1913 and 1971. In fact, the editor of Boys' Life gave Rockwell his first job, that of illustrating stories in the magazine, marking the BEGINNING of Rockwell's very long career.

Scavenge Challenge September 2011 - "10) Add a frame to any new photo (your choice of subject) using post-processing tools."

Added a bit of sepia, vignette to the original and then used Picnik for the text and corners and borders and frame and yet more vignetting to try to give it an older poster look.


Note to self. Keep it simple. Upload pictures when taken!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the earphones shots.Love 'em. And I love how Zachary and Henry let you do it. They are major - cookie-whipped.

Those two are amazing with their headphones on! You are just getting better and better. And your Norman Rockwell impression is...well... impressive!

I loved the headphone idea! Actually, I tried it, but our headphones were too big. Thank gosh for little rosebud ears and patient hounds! lol

I really love that magazine cover! It reminds me that I still need to do my frame shot.

Ah, yes, a window or door! My kind of assignment, if I can find a cool door on our trip today!
