Dogs have four legs. Small dogs too. Most people think these little ones are ‘cute’ and ‘cuddly’.
People have two legs. Harley people too. Most people think bikers are ‘sturdy’ and ‘tough’.
One might come to the conclusion that small dogs and Harley riders do not have much in common. But here you are wrong!
Personally I would never dress up a dog like this. Plus I prefer big dogs and silly cats. But as long as the animals are comfortable in their outfit and have fun, I don’t mind. Perhaps I should take my cat with me on our tours. Hmm, he would probably scratch me to pulp and take off. Perhaps better not 😉
These photos were sent to me by my partner, V-man, who writes Bikermaniac’s Blog (in Dutch).
Yesterday children were in the picture. Today the stage is taken by Dutch animals. I can’t even go out for a walk anymore without my camera. I hope you enjoy them as much as I.
And if you prefer to watch them stroll by all by themselves, then watch this slideshow.
And this guy’s imagination seems pretty limitless. Meet Erik Johansson, a Swede living in Berlin, Germany. Erik is a professional photographer and retoucher, who makes stunning photos.
I work mostly with personal- and commissioned projects. For me photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in my mind. I get inspired by things around me in my daily life and all kinds of things I see. Every new project is a new challenge and my goal is to realize them as realistic as possible.

Gregory Colbert’s Ashes and Snow is an ongoing project that weaves together photographic works, 35mm films, art installations and a novel in letters. With profound patience and an enduring commitment to the expressive and artistic nature of animals, he has captured extraordinary interactions between humans and animals.
The photos of Gregory Colbert are pure beauty, each is a brilliant piece of art in itself. Animals are nature’s living masterpieces. I’m speechless, so I’ll stop typing and watch in silence. The images will speak to you. Hurry, click!

I fear I may have a new hobby… A hobby that will complement my writing: photography!
My enthusiasm for making and editing photos is rising sky-high, while I explore the many possibilities of my iPhone.
Hence a new blog on Figments of a Dutchess:
Will you take a look?

Pushing buttons. Changing images. Enhanced beauty.

Not a single photo you see in the magazines is completely original! All are altered – some a bit, others a lot more – by programs like Photoshop.
This is what a friend said to me last week. I stared at her and shook my head. I told her she was ruining my trust in mankind, that there must be pure photos too! Mirror images, like the ones I see each morning
before after the morning grooming! But no. My friend is an experienced photographer and she recognizes the techniques that are used to touch up the magazine photos.
Intrigued, I started to explore the possibilities of my iPhone through the Instagram (profile: Doldriest) and Camera+ app. Using those, I started to play with shades, lights, flash, crops and special effects. And here are the results. In the third photo I was trying to focus/zoom on the the ice on the glass (which didn’t work obviously). What I got was the reflection of the yard.
Did I make these photos? Yes! Did I know exactly what I was doing? No, but I just played around and stopped when the images were to my liking. What do you think, are they any good? Tips?
