A Girl and a Puppy

I have a real treat for you today...these beautiful photos taken by my wonderful friend, Ashley Singleton. This is her daughter, Cameron and their new Aussie/Border Collie mix named Wyatt. I gotta say that these are some of the most amazing photos I've seen of a child and puppy together. The lighting, the sepia tone, the feeling they convey are all what make for top notch imagery. I think Ashley has a real gift two cutie pie subjects!

I'm leaving you for the weekend with a quote that really hit me the other day. With all that's going on in the world right now and in keeping these touching photos in mind...remember...

"Even in a time of elephantine
vanity and greed, one never has
to look far to see the campfires
of gentle people" ~ Garrison Keillor

Have a heck of a joyful Vernal Equinoxy kind a day!! xox

The bond between a girl and her dog is one of the most inseparable bonds know to (wo)mankind. What a beautiful little girl and a beautiful dog to match.

Linda, I have to say first of all that "Rosie" your new commission is absolutely beautiful!!!

These photos are stunning...your friend should be so pleased that she able to capture these two together. I'm sure she'll always treasure them.
