Thought for the Week

"A hug is a perfect gift - one size fits all and nobody minds if you give it back."

'G' is for ...

Golden Retriever




Another canine supporter at the Sunday morning football. He was just so gorgeous, I couldn't resist taking my eye off the game for a few shots!

In view of the fact that there are so many fantastic photographs being posted every week for Mrs Nesbitts ABC Wednesday, and as a thank you to all of you who have been so very kind about my own photo's, I have devised my very own award to pass to one of you.



The recipient should post the award on their own blog this week, and next week, pass it on to ONE other blogger. It does not have to be an ABC Wednesday blogger, it can be passed onto anyone whose photograph(s) you have admired.

This week, I present the very first 'Photo Genius' award to Mike, over at Photoxication for the pure brilliance of his 'G is for ... Guitar'
(Just copy and paste the logo from the sidebar, it should be small enough to fit in your own)

What a great looking dog. Looks like he would be a good friend. I second your award about Mike and his stunning photography.

Peter said...

Love the photos of the dog. You have captured his movements and his personality

Ali said...

DFP ~ Thanks for your comments and for the seconding of Mikes entry, he has a very good eye doesn't he

Peter ~ He is just gorgeous, I couldn't help but photograph him. It was only when I got home I realised that I had shot 'G is for ...'!!!

Welcome to the ABC Wednesday group.

Morning Ali! I want you out of bed earlier on a Wednesday morning, the curtains were still closed when I came by earlier. :)

You can never fail to win favour with a doggie shot and that golden retriever is gorgeous. Super compilation too.

I agree with your take on Mike's photo, I just went 'Wow' when I saw it. :)

dot said...

Beautiful dog! I love the way you made the collage. Now I'm going to check out Mike's photo.

Mike said...

I really like the second picture down on the right hand side and the larger picture on the left is lovely.

Thank you sooooooo much for my photo genius award :):):):):) I shall be displaying it with great pride. BTW it's a great idea too!

Kate Isis said...

love the collage of pics. And the dog is pretty cute to.

RUTH said...

This reminds me so much our the Golden retriever we had when I lived in Ramsgate, Kent. His name was Sonny. Sadly we lost him when he was only 18 months to Parvo Virus and I've never owned a dog since.

Ali said...

WFW ~ I'm lucky to have got out of bed at all today. Doctors orders - 3 days off and do 'nothing'!!!

Dot ~ Thanks, the collage is a great idea, but it was stolen/borrowed from WalksFarWoman!

Mike ~ That's my favourite, the middle of the smaller ones.

You are very welcome, it's an brilliant shot - you can't even see the table that you laid it on!!! ;O)

Ali said...

KML ~ Good subject helps! The collage is WFW's idea, I just stole it!!

bidarlah ~ you do just fine with your photo's

JoAnn ~ The collage is made in Photoshop, but I'm sure you could do it with other software too

Ali said...

Kate ~ He is a real cutie and a complete bundle of bouncy energy.

Ruth ~ Parvo virus, what an awful way to lose a pet. I hope you have kept some fond memories of him.

craftyhala said...

My husband and I had a golden retriever/shepherd mix dog for years. She was great fun.
Your photo genius award is a nice idea. I'll head over to see Mike's G for guitar next.

photowannabe said...

Beautiful dog and great G Wednesday shot. Love your action collage.

mrsnesbitt said...

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh! Great idea there!

Dxx
Love the dog, you can't go wrong with animals1 LOL!

Ali said...

Craftyhala ~ Dogs are my favourite pets, they are so much fun and so loyal and dependable. Glad you like the award idea.

Photowannabe ~ Thx, I love the collage effect, it is quite fun to put together too.

Denise ~ I agree, animals are always great subjects for photographs.

Pauline said...

What a lovely dog and so well captured, nice award too. I'll be sure to visit the recipient.

Hin Man said...

A great photo mosaic for the beautiful golden retriever. I love the action in the dog. Don't know if it is a girl or boy, he/she is lovely.

Michael said...

Good doggy! Sorry, couldn't resist. More good stuff Ali.

p.s. Did you try the both-eyes-open approach yet?

Miss Understood said...

Lovely pics, Ali.

When I worked in the studio, dogs would often be included in family portraits and occasionally they'd have a sitting all of their own. The hassle I had! Trying to get a dog to keep his tongue in can be quite challenging...I did learn that if I called the dogs name or made a funny noise he'd close his mouth, but then I'd end up with a shot of a cocked head and stuck up ears!

paddy said...

Beautiful dog.
Y;-) Paddy

Ali said...

Pauline ~ He is just a year old and still very playful. Mike's is well worth a visit.

Hin ~ It's a boy, his name is Monty. Thanks for your comments.

Michael ~ Yes, I tried it last Sunday, but my brain couldn't cope with seeing one image with the left eye and two with the right!!!! So I switched back to my own way, it works for me!!

Ali said...

Laney ~ I think it's part of their character when they sit with their tongue out. I don't know that I'd have the patience to try to get them to keep it in!!! lol

Paddy ~ Thanks honey.

Max-e said...

I love retrievers, such nice gentle dogs. Must say I like your action shots

Jean M Fogle said...

Ali, You know I love the pics, dogs!
Jean

Ali said...

Max ~ Thx for visiting for ABC. I agree, retrievers are lovely dogs.

Jean ~ Yes, I kinda thought you'd be at the top of the list of those who would love this weeks photo's :p)

DWQ Online said...

What a beautiful puppy. I just love animals.

WalksFarWoman said...

Have pity on this poor woman, this friendless woman who is merely looking for some affection from a passing stranger. I cannot rest, nor feed my children for the worry of a nonsense meme. There are a bunch of idiots holding me hostage and have made me write this letter to you - Please kind lady, rescue me so I can return to safety....

You're tagged! :)

david mcmahon said...

Lovely dog, Ali. A very handsome fella.

Hope you're feeling well.

Nice award and Mike's a terrific recipient.

Evening said...

Ali, I love the pictures of the golden retriever. I can see freedom and joy in these pictures of him. He is beautiful, isn't he?
xo

Ali said...

Ellie ~ I thought I was over the worst, apparently not, hence my lack of recent blogging posts!

David ~ Mike's photo blew me away, I'm pleased you thought it worthy of the award.

Evening ~ Thx for stopping by. As soon as I am back on track I'll drop by your place. Hope you are well. x

Nicole said...

What a gorgeous dog! I love Golden Retrievers and the last place I worked was at a home office and their Golden Retriever loved me. He would lay at my feet all day and would get so excited when I got to work of a morning.

Great action shots Ali
