Stretching it

The challenge this time was Complimentary Colours. Since we (Kerry, me, and E) made a slightly impulsive decision to get a new puppy and forgo sleep for the unforeseen future, I figured the dogs would be a good subject. Who am I kidding? They will probably be my subjects 97% of the time. 
I'm stretching it by calling them "orange" and going with the complimentary colour of blue.

All the toys and he has a chunk of sod in his mouth.

By the way, this is Spike. He's the new baby, another Golden Retriever. We had been talking about adding to the family, and things just sort of worked out (snowballed) in a short amount of time. He is 8 weeks and 3 days old. He's super smart, has terrible puppy breath, and is Linus's shadow. He just loves Linus, and Linus just tolerates him. Linus has been amazing with him. 
He sleeps now, so I should either have a nap or do something productive.

If at first you don't succeed...

We are trying so hard, maybe too hard, to do these challenges in the time we've given ourselves! The whole idea was to get out and use our cameras more. I hate to feel guilty about not getting the challenges done in a timely manner! I have to get over that. 
The challenge was to take a photo in low light. 

We usually have our little Halloween photo shoot earlier, for lighting reasons, and we usually have a child or two in the photo. But everyone had to work, so Linus got dressed up and tried his best to look daunting as the Headless Horseman or is it Dogman?  He wore his costume to answer the door for about an hour, then he got too hot. He just loves seeing all the kids!
