Got it this time - WRECK 'EM II

Took off work 15 minutes early to race home, grab the camera and hit campus right at 5:30. Got some good ones.



I love how the wide angle gives the image a sense of movement.







Merry Christmas Everybody.

How does a dog know if he knows another dog? Oh...

Spotlight on Dub 3

This is Winnie (or Double-Huh). Also known as Nascar Winnie because she runs around the house in a circle. We think she runs around in circles because she thinks she is so fat. "Oh my gosh, I'm so fat," she routinely yells at us as she screams past us for another lap around the house. She says it really fast though, so it sounds like "ohmygoshimsofat," and you have to include the doppler effect in that as well. I guess it would be "o h m y GOSHIM s o f a t". These are some new pictures we took while playing around with our new point and shoot (G9).

Big Bro (ICC Profiles)

Don't you even think about messin with my little sis...

Standard Adobe color profile... The one that most web browsers pretend doesn't exist.


Standard RGB color profile... Web browsers also won't see this ICC profile, but it doesn't matter because it mimics the color rendered by the monitor (so to speak)

So, apparently (after a little reading) IE and some other browsers like to discard or ignore the ICC (International Color Consortium) profile embeded in the jpeg you post online. You have to convert to the profile used by web browsers to get pseudo accurate color reproduction between the picture you are editing and the picture that you see on the web browser (when doing a side-by-side comparison on the same monitor). This is done in PS by selecting Edit->Convert to Profile...->Working RGB

I tried to make the differences obvious in the above images (glance at the green in the background). Hope this helps someone...

Double Dub


Another game we all play is "Where is Hayne?"
Walker and Winnie are looking. They just need to look down.

Spotlight on Dub 2

Waylon is the big dog in our house, tipping the scales at 93 lbs.

That is a mighty handsome waddle you got there buddy.


Story time: Sarah wanted a chocolate lab without droopy eyes.
We got a yellow lab with droopy eyes. Ask her if she would want
it any other way now.


He doesn't know how to lay down gracefully. All 93 lbs impact the floor at
exactly the same time. It is a good alarm clock at 3 AM when he re-situates
himself.

Ain't he purtee?

Spotlight on Dub 1

This is Walker.
Sarah and I each had to be the handler for one dog during the canine
obedience classes we enrolled our dogs in when they were about 6 months
old. I chose to handle Walker, because he was the less disciplined of the two. Sarah
graciously chose to handle a dog that almost outweighed her (Waylon
couldn't hurt a fly, unless it looked like Walker). We didn't have Winnie back then...
Because I was the handler for Walker, I say Walker is 'my dog' and Sarah says
Waylon is 'her dog' since she was his handler... Probably TMI just then, oh well...

Naturally, Walker is the #1 best (this has nothing to do with the fact
that I am writing this post and Sarah isn't, really it doesn't)...

I mean, he even looks like he is the best.

He even plays like he is the best

He even relaxes like he is the best.

Next time... here comes HAYNE (Spotlight on Dub 2)

NICKNAMES!!!

My dogs have at least 22 nicknames a piece, but I will spare you the details. We will go with the most popular nickname...

This is 'double-huh'. It comes from the letter 'W'. We used to call
her Double-ya, and it kinda evolved (although not much).

This is BAB. Pronounced Bob. Really long story but I think I can sum it up like this
Walker -> Wabooper -> Baaaabooper -> BAB
We play a game called 'Anybody seen BAB?'

Hayne hasn't...

He has a stretchy face... Good old boy...

Dubs all wet

So forget AJ, if they don't think photos of my dogs are web-worthy, I'll put my own up.
Here we are having a ball at the K-9 Splash Fest at Clapp Park.



I swear Walker splashes better than he swims.



but it says no diving




They had big-ole spools (for big-ole cable) in the pool so the dogs could rest and hop in and out.


Nope, I'm pretty sure this is mine...


must not want to get his butt wet


go get it!!


LOOK MOM, I HAVE WEBBED FEET!


at some point, you've got to get tired...
not sure when that would have been, they could have stayed all day.

Random dubs

Went to the park the other day. Waylon sure can motor around pretty good for a dog that weighs 90 lbs.


All three dubs chasing some tall lanky dude.




Walker trying to catch Waylon's ball. It's so easy to start a dog fight that way.


Nevermind, Waylon doesn't seem to care too much. Dub, you have something on your nose.


Wait a minute, other dub... you have something on your tongue.
