OK, Friday is the Green Theme (:-]).

First I thought about the Mean Green Machine but my lawn tractor is in the garage with 400 feet of snow in front.

The I saw Charlotte playing with her green toy.
So took the toy from Charlotte, placed it on my chair and took a few shot.
Then Charlotte decided it was enough so she jumped on the chair and took back her toy.

Well, I took the toy back and replaced it on the chair and she jumped on the chair again to get it back.

So now I got mean and told her to stay in my mean voice (you can see how scared she is).

Just had time to take one shot and she took possession of her toy once again.

PP: Sharpened a bit, resized, sharpened again and framed.

Hello to those of you that are just looking.
And HELLO and THANK YOU VERY MUCH to those of you that take the time to leave critiques/comments/workshops :-).

Charlotte looks like a toy too; she is so cute. The green color of her toy jumps out against the other colors. Thanks for your note and the proverbs. I like it a lot.


À 1/8 SEC c'est très long avec un petit chien tout excité mais le résultat est pas mal bon ! Du sacré beau tissu sur ton sofa combien la verge ? ...lol . Très bien réussie la photo et bon choix pour le Thème du Vendredi, Charlotte est très coquette en passant,

Bonjour Pierre,
Belle prise de vue de Charlotte et son petit ami tout vert,:) belles couleurs et composition sur le theme, Photo magnifique de Charlotte...

oooo she does look scared about just as scared as when I 'yell' at Daisy! Great picture very sweet. TFs

Like Kermit the frog said, "It's not easy being green" or a dog with a green toy!! Having a dog myself, I know how protective they get of their toys. I'm glad you included your dog in the photo.

cute shot, Lisa

Good Charlotte, she's not gonna let you take her green friend away from her. She looks like a toy too Pierre!! And I think the two together look better than one on the chair!

Hello Pierre
That green stuffy looks so clean.. I promise not to show this to Max...

Oh she totally looks so afraid of you (NOT) !

I like that she wanted to play in our FF theme this week...

Great idea!

Bonjour Michel,
Belle prise!
Moi aussi j’ai hésité à savoir si Charlotte était un toutou ou un vrai petit chien jusqu’à ce que je lise ta note. Elle semble bien fière de poser pour la postérité à côté de son jouet.
Bravo pour la composition des couleurs et pour la mise en place!


Piet .. so here we have youre two cuddles :-)
A sharp fine close-up and.. also green colour!
I like the composition Great details , good work bro!

je reviens

Salut Pierre
Excellent capture de miss Charlotte et de sa peluche. On sent bien a son expression que c'est SON jouet et que personne d'autre n'a le droit d'y toucher. D'ailleurs, la pauvre peluche est verte de peur et on voit bien a son sourire crispé qu'elle est pas plus rassurée que cela ;-)

Hi Pierre,
Beautiful portrait of the cute Charlotte and her teddy bear! It's so obvious that she's submissively posing :D

Hello Pierre,

Beautiful idea, your Charlotte is so cute!
I like this composition, a very nice and original contribution to the theme. TFS
Best regards,

Ahh, you melted my heart! Charlotte the Destroyer has a soft side! Wonderful shot Pierre! So adorable! Nice lighting here, just a perfect pose!

Merhaba byfriend Pierre..
verynice shot and pov..superb colors and focus...

Obviously one of her toys that is not 'well loved' Pierre. Charlotte's colouring blends in nicely with the colour of your chair and the green certainly stands out. Good colour and lovely detail. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Green Machine’...apart from the exhaust this had none of the add on body parts. Why they alter the exhaust on a Subaru I don't know, they are noisy enough anyway :)

Hoi Piet,
So Charlotte is in love with this Greeny...or is it already distroyed as many woman do after an intense love LOL
Anyway, great portrait of these two....por Greeny,mit will be remembered in love :-)

Hello Pierre,
Avant de lire ta note je lisais dans les yeux de Charlotte à peu près ceci:
"Hé mon ami, regardons droit devant et ne bougeons surtout pas!"
J'ai bien ri en lisant ta note par la suite.
Ce qui veut dire que Charlotte est très expressive, (ce qui me surprends toujours de la part d'un animal) et que tu as su capté cette très drôle expression.
Belle capture!
(...même l'ami semble terrifié!)

Piet , you are to old for this, hahaha
But ok I like it
Good one :-)

Well, Pierre, this is added value -- not only a wonderful image but also fine quotes to complement this theme of all things green! I had to open this image to realize how much it was worth appreciating. Great detail and lighting, at once sharp and warm, cute and cuddly, fun and finely framed.


Hello Pierre,
Charlotte looks like the boss! ;) Fantastic pp work, I love the emphasis on the green and the muted tones of the rest of the photo. Great lighting and composition, thanks for sharing,

Hello Pierre

Oh this si sooo cute here little face is just adorable. Lovely idea for the theme she just oozes character. A nicely lit and good sharp well coloured image my friend

TFS and joining in the theme

regards Helen

Qu'ils sont adorables!
C'est vraiment difficile à comprendre quel est le nounoun, entre les deux! :-)
Ciao, Antonella

Bonjour Pierre!

Surprenant ce portrait de Charlotte! Elle est certes très disciplinée pour rester ainsi immobile.

Plutôt comique comme composition avec Charlotte toute sérieuse et cette peluche toute souriante. Bien jolis contrastes.

Wow Pierre, a great shot of Charlotte!! Love it, she looks so well groomed too! Love the background & lighting! My compliments Friend :} Don

Ah! la belle petite charlotte et son ami vert! Si cute. comme elle sait bien poser!
Ton pov est tres bien pense et la tapisserie du meuble fait un fond d'ecran parfait. Une vraie toile d'artiste d'autrefois :)
La lumiere est tres bien controlee aussi.

Bonne journee, il faut que je me sauve :)

What a cute little puppy :)
Seems like he/she's got a new playmate.

Good photo for the theme.


Ah, great portrait of Charlotte, and a great story. They look so cute together. Picture is definitely more interesting with her in it, and she seems to know it!

Charlotte is very pretty Girl and I am sure if my handsome Hogar(fox terrier)see her he will loose his mind...;):)
Very beautiful picture dear Pierre:)
warm regards and have a nice WE
