Slight of Paw

The Magician
Zachary: "Ladies and Gentlemen, for my next trick I require a volunteer from
the audience. Someone with... a Cookie."

Slight of Paw
Zachary: "Yes, yes - step up here young pup."
Henry: "Wait! I don't have my lucky hat!"

Here you go Henry.

Slight of Paw
Zachary: "Thank you lovely assistant."
Henry: "Thanks Momma."

You're very welcome, boys.

Slight of Paw
Zachary: "Now watch closely."
Henry: "What happened to my Cookie?"

Zachary, trying to deceive poor Henry out of his Cookies.

Our Daily Challenge - July 11, 2013 - "Smoke and Mirrors"

Used in the metaphorical sense here, as I do not care get my furry friends too near smoke generating objects.

Daily Dog Challenge "619. A Touch of Magic"

Slight of Paw
Zachary: "I know where it is - do you?"
Henry: "Cookie, where are you?"

I was quite conflicted about the last shot (above) due to the dark shadow Henry's hat throws across Zachary's face.

I have a nearly identical shot above it without the shadow, and while the perfectionist in me (what little there is) screamed at me to pick that one, I found something intriguing about Zachary's half-shadowed face with highlighted eye in the context of being a Magician.

I hope he made that cookie reappear.

I think the shadow in the last picture adds an air of mystery to it. I think you made the right call!

And I love your idea for this shot! I've tried to do what I wanted once already with pretty lousy results. I might try again today, we'll see!
