Thinking Out Loud



While at Point Pleasant Park yesterday morning with our dog
 Sophie, I came across this fire hydrant on one of the paths.


I thought, 'This makes sense considering all the trees and everything.
Yes, a fire hydrant is a good thing to have here.


Plus, it did give this person a 'subject' to examine.


As I am quite sure it has to a vast number of males of the canine species!!!

    Did you do a little HDR on it?

    1. Actually I used 'Orton' to teak it. HDR put it too far to the left!! lol

      Can you just imagine all the breeds?

  2. Nice shots, Jim! Isn't it amazing how you can take a photo of a simple object and turn it into art?

  4. That hydrant looks very old. It's probably been serving as a doggy loo for many, many years. I hope you didn't touch it!

  10. Bloody hell Jimski, you are the only person I know who can make a fire hydrant look arty. How do you get such good light in your pictures by the way - do you have a light sensor or something?

    1. Oh bloody bloody Anneski! Here;s the deal....if the photo comes out a little flat and not very interesting, I use Picasa editing program which has a lot of options from changing the photo completely to just tweaking it a bit. Which is what I did here......it is called 'Ortonish' which slightly changes the patina of the subject while keeping the colour. The original was fine but a little 'flat'.
      I wouldn't know what to do with a light sensor....but if you wanted to show me.....

    1. Oh oh! Her secret is out!!! Has Mickey received any special message yet?

  12. Perhaps that hydrant isn't a hydrant at all. Maybe they put it there just for the pups to leave messages.

    I have a hydrant in my front yard that all the neighborhood dogs love to stop at and leave Pugsley a note. Today as we walked past, I noticed him licking it! No doggy kisses tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  13. That's for sure! lol! But just think of what Pugsley knows that you don't!

  14. To think the many messages transmitted via that one beautifully photographed hydrant didn't even require an internet connection. I'm betting the dogs must shake their heads in wonder at our systems of communication :)

    1. They have certainly the upper hand when it comes to communication! I can see them snickering at us now, Carol!! lol
