Dirt Flavoring

Micah:  We like to do Sepia Saturday, Caturday Art and Black & White Sunday using a series of the same photograph for that week.  It's interesting to see just a smidgeon of what can be done with a picture.
Rusty:  Here are Merci, me and Sam giving Jan the back of disrespect last winter.  We asked Jan to lighten it a bit and this is the lightened version.

Merci;   Don't worry.  We're not going to try to teach you anything because we don't actually know anything.  We just have fun watching Jan play with these for us.  This is the original.  Notice how Sam looks like he needs a bath but he wasn't actually dirty.

Sam:  Because we used the lightened photo for the rest of this series, I don't look like I need a bath in this sepia version. 

Cameron:  This is the Photoshop Elements "newspaper" black and white.  It is too light and clear for any newspaper we've seen Jan read.  Perhaps she reads the wrong newspapers?

Percy:  Jan tried a colorful frame for Caturday Art.  Hmmm, not bad.  It does make the black and white stand out.  Do you think it needs a little something, Buddy?

Buddy:  Oh, I don't know.  Possibly.  Perhaps you'll prefer the color version n a colorful frame.  I kind of like it myself.  But then readers have different taste so some might prefer the black and white.

Cyndi:  Marcus, you get stranger by the day.  You're licking the original version of the photo.  Why?

Marcus:  I'm taste testing.  It looks dark and dirty and I love dirt.  But it doesn't taste like dirt.  I think Jan forgot to add flavoring.  Do any of you know where she keeps the dirt flavoring?

Come join Ruckus the Eskie for Sepia Saturday. 

And Athena and Marie for Caturday Art.

 And so-hosts Nola and Sugar for Black & White Sunday.

  5. All of those look pretty tasty to us!

    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  7. We love the black and white ! Does it taste like pepper and salt, Marcus ? Purrs

  8. We like the black and white. Sometimes, when we just can't get the color of pictures adjusted right, we'll do it in black and white and it looks pretty good.

  9. I love dirt....we have clay soil and Mom doesn't particularly like my RED feet when I come in from outside but dirt is FUN to roll around in!

    Hugs, Sammy

  10. The dirt is kept in the backyard and deep inside the carpet. You have to dig to find the premium stuff! Great photo in all flavors!

  11. Well we think Jan did a fantastic job with the photo!

  12. A wonderful collection of varied pictures!

  14. You're right! Sepia can hide dirt very well. Why do you think a white dog advocates for Sepia Saturday ;)

    Happy Sepia Saturday from Ruckus!

  15. The pups look great no matter what colors or flavors you use. P.S. they keep the dirt flavor outside!

  16. Very nice! Looks like lots of cuddling will be happening today!
