I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    Adorable shot. I love watching the pups at our dog beach. Too bad humans can’t interact so freely…….(not unless we are drunk)…lol. joni

  • Thanks Joni, it was a cool little dog. Drinking can be loads of fun or lead to trouble at times! There’s the occasional “doggie scuffle” there too, but it’s over in a second and the fun resumes.

    Very cute, my dog hates the water.
    Great shot!

  • That seems unusual. Most of them love it after overcoming their initial fears.
    Thanks a lot!

    Really perfectly done – clear subject, smooth background – a dogful of personality – and all quite wonderful, considering he’s just a chance pooch on the beach!

  • This was taken before or after a shot called “New Friends” that I uploaded last year. It’s different to my usual frame-up, but it’s a nice moment and mood. Thanks Shallay!
