August Photo Challenge

I was checking out the WWW for what August is known for and I found all these crazy special days listed. Like Friendship day, Ice Cream Sandwich day, Booklovers day, Senior Citizens day and it got me thinking. All these days are things that make me feel Happy.

So August challenge is: Happiness. EG: Someone/something who is happy, something that makes you happy. You are a smart and creative bunch and I'm sure you will come up with some great photos of happiness.

I am not sure if anything can get any happier than this. Here is a photo of my dog taken on a trip to the Texas Hill Country at the end of March. This is the Frio River and my pretty girl was allowed off her lead to play in the water. I had called her and she was running flat out. She was having such a great time splashing through the river it was just a joy to watch.

The picture really is not that great but I think it fits the theme well. Comments are always welcome and I thank you for viewing.

Wow! She looks just like my girl. She also loves to frolic in the water. We walk at a lake nearby and I let her off to chase sticks when I can. She never brings them back though!
 
Well there isn't much that makes me happier than seeing this old lady happy. She was out chasing squirrels with the pup and she always turns around to see if I saw her tree them. I snuck behind a tree to capture this image because as soon as she sees my camera she walks up right next to me so I can't focus on her. Post editing I brought the exposure down half a stop, adjusted the highlights and shadows to bring out more detail in her face and I corrected the white balance.
