K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

24 Oct

Good morning folks, welcome to a new week and a new chapter in K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, the antidote to the Monday blues.

K’lee set the theme on Friday, leaving us the prompt; Man’s best friend, which I chose to interpret by sharing some fairly straightforward pictures of my late lamented canine companion, Karla.

The first half dozen of this magnificent seven were taken by yours truly, but the final image is one originally taken by friend and resident blog-toonist, Ho. I’ve just mucked about with it a bit.

I’ve posted a link to K’lee’s photo HERE, now let me see what you have to offer.


To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

    What a beautiful dog Karla was. It’s hard to lose so true a friend, but it’s comforting to have photographic memories of some of the fun times. ❤

      She was and it was. You’re right though, the memories are good

    Cute dog! I agree with Sue. Photo memories helps. I hardly have any of my dog. Lovely photos, Dale 🙂

    Oh what a gorgeous dog. Karla looks like she was very happy to be in your lives.

      She was very special, I was devastated when she had to leave my side for the final time.

    I’m ultra late getting to you, but I have to say these are fantastic shots that obviously mean a lot to you. That last shot really says it all, and as a commenter already said, at least you have this archive of great photos of a beautiful companion. Lots of people don’t have shots like these. Well done.
