Now, of the people and things that make me personally happy, John doesn't like to be photographed, and most of my friends are online, which makes them hard to photograph. A good job would make me happy, but I don't have one of those right now. But that still leaves several major sources of joy for me. It's all the same stuff I blog about all the time, especially that other species of Blocher family members:
Cayenne, full of joy, knowing a trip to the dog park is imminent.

Yup, I'm talking about dogs again. I didn't get in on Feline and Furballs with Feathers Friday this week, but let's make up for that right now. To avoid boring you with the usual dog park pictures, I've had fun with my cheap photo editing software, applying various effects to my photos. That gives me joy, too!
Here's Cayenne, and Cayenne, and Cayenne! Aside from pasting in a few clones of my dog, I saturated the image, embossed it a little and used a color balancing tool.
I'm pretty sure I did this one with the watercolor effect plus a canvas texture.
This is the impressionism effect, except for Pepper. I took an unadulterated copy of the same shot and resized until Pepper was the same size as on the edited photo, and then pasted her over the original image.
Same shot, different edit. This one is severely cropped, and Pepper is somewhat lacking in definition. The background is saturated, motion blurred, and leather-textured.
Another thing that makes me happy? Watching (and reading or writing about) Doctor Who! Obviously I didn't photograph the actors, although I did two screen grabs. They are composited over a photo of the most-watched items in my Doctor Who DVD collection.

And last but not least, here is a previously unseen shot from my recent hike through Lower Sabino Canyon. I think I mostly just saturated it a bit. Getting out into the desert for a few hours on a beautiful day is definitely a joyful thing to do!
Now let's go see what makes everyone else happy!
