August 2008 Photo Challenge!

Here we are, in the thick of summer. Heat getting to anyone yet?

Are you ready for a REAL photo challenge?


We'd love to see your take on pictures that portray "Light and Shadow" with your Havanese being an important part of the photo. Is the sun streaming through your living room window, splayed across your sleeping Hav? Does your puppy enjoy lounging in the shade of the oak tree out in the back yard?

Here are some great examples from our own gallery: (I hope it's o.k. to those members whose photos are linked here... PM me if you prefer I delete it from this post. )

Let's see the play of light and shadow in your pictures. They don't have to be "perfect" and you don't need a fancy camera, so have fun and see what you come up with. I know your Hav will love being the center of attention!

The "winner" gets FREE membership to the Havanese Forum!


Post your photos and stories here in this thread for everyone to enjoy and please keep to the topic of the challenge.

Great photos already!


Missy-Jasper and Cash look fabulous! I love their photos!

Geri--Milo is such a hunk--I love his coloring!
Great photos of Bailey too! He is growing up so fast!

Suzanne--Sierra is just such a pretty hav! She must never take a bad photo!

It's a very nice start to the monthly challenge!

Geri, Milo and Baily are such Hunks!!! and Sierra, what a beauty...I agree with Julie she is one of the most photogenic Havs out there-- I love the last one against the black, with the light playing on the dust particles. It is a great start to the month and it's not even august yet.

Great pics, everyone.

Hey Geri - did I mention I am totally and completely inlove with Milo???? I love his sweet little face and his coloring is so cool. It is so rare for a Hav to have a dark body and a light face/head. It's usually the opposite.

Missy and Suzanne - you guys take such awesome pictures, I am just not great friends with the camera and have been so lazy with pics lately. I can't rememberr the last time I snapped a picture.

Yaaaaaaaaay! We have some eager beavers posting already. I love that!

Those are stunning photos, Suzanne. Sierra is gorgeous no matter what pic she's in, but the shadows and lights across her face make her even more beautiful.

Geri, those are precious pics of little Bailey! They don't have to be "pro" so please post whatever you think plays with the shadow and light. I love Milo. He's so beautiful. sigh........ and to think you have TWO like that! Lucky you.

Missy, I love those two photos of your boys. Simple and yet full of meaning, I think. I think that when there are fewer distractions around the pup, you really get to delve into their eyes, their faces. Nice!
