Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Baby and Husky Dog Singing For The Camera




Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Baby and Husky Dog Singing For The Camera: From Denny:  This will have you laughing so hard.  Be careful not to fall off the chair.  Check out the father's sock foot up on the wall and hear him snickering in the background while the mother films the funny episode.

The dog is a husky and is named Angel singing along with her human, a baby named Lexi.  Lexi is so young her tongue muscles have not caught up with her thoughts she is trying to express.  It's as if the dog understands her conversation that probably goes something like this:

The Social Poets: Official First Family White House Portrait for 2011: The Obamas: From Denny:  Here is the new Obama family portrait for 2011 for all those of you who have been searching for it by the thousands.  It was taken after attendance at Sunday church services.  The daughters sure are growing up fast - and beautiful!


Great portrait.  From a photographer's point of view I sure am glad this was a professional photographer who shot it.  How many times do you see folks place that background holly wreath like it's growing out of the president's head?  I've seen way too many wedding, birthday and graduation photos with that composition issue.  :)

The Soul Calendar: Total Lunar Eclipse Put On Intense Red Display, Photos: 10 Dec 2011

The Soul Calendar: Total Lunar Eclipse Put On Intense Red Display, Photos: 10 Dec 2011: From Denny: The 10 December 2011 total lunar eclipse was the last total lunar eclipse to be seen until April 2014. At least we can view a partial lunar eclipse on 4 June 2012. It was reported to be an intense red, putting on quite a show in the sky. In fact, the type of red color was considered a rare treat.

Of course, when I went out to view it here in south Louisiana all I got was a completely cloudy sky. It's time for me to move up to higher ground, like the mountains. The Gulf Coast just doesn't cut it for proper skygazing. :)

From atmospheric scientist and eclipse expert Richard Keen of the University of Colorado: "During the lunar eclipse, most of the light illuminating the moon passes through the stratosphere, where it is reddened by scattering. If the stratosphere is loaded with dust from volcanic eruptions, the eclipse will be dark. A clear stratosphere, on the other hand, produces a brighter eclipse."

Dennys Funny Quotes: Funny Holiday Ads: Crazy Target Lady Shopping Tips 4 - 6: From Denny: Crazy Lady keeps the laughs coming! She really does mock the Black Friday shopping spree that occurs every year once everyone has gulped down their Thanksgiving Day dinner.

The message from retailers? "Be thankful just long enough to finish your meal. Now get down to business and start emptying your wallets into our Big Business piggy banks."

The Social Poets: Check Out This Video: Worlds Fastest Flying Human

The Social Poets: Check Out This Video: Worlds Fastest Flying Human: From Denny: Check out this Norwegian wingsuit flyer/paraglider as he leaps off a high cliff and soars a mile or so over the mountains near a river. He finally pulls his chute open to finish the last glide to land easily on the road where a car is waiting to take him home.

What a rush! He looked like a speeding bullet to the camera crew on the ground as he crested the mountain range. He just zoomed on past them, going maybe well over 130 mph? Turns out he was clocked at 250km/hour - which is 155 mph.

Norwegian Espen Fadnes thought this outdoor activity would be a fun experience for the weekend. He has donned his wingsuit and performed this crazy feat so many times he has earned the dubious honor of World's Fastest Flying Human. In fact, last year he jumped off the Swiss Alps in an international competition, taking home the win.

Dennys Photo Gallery: 20 Cute Child Portraits


Eye to Eye
From Denny:  Check out the adorable child portraits I found on one of my "visual vacations" to rest my brain from mind-numbing blog maintenance tasks.  Most were taken by their parents and are quite clever in composition.

How do you narrow down the choices to just a few for a post?  Well, it wasn't easy, I can tell you that one for sure!  I'll probably do a few more of these child photography posts.

I love portraits and the human face that I'm always looking for creative ways to photograph.  This should give you some great ideas of how to photograph your new arrival, the sister's cute kids or just when you are out on photo safari in your neighborhood.
