Special Effects Sunday - Dedicated To Kristin G. at Dogs Rock

This week has been a crazy busy week. My sweet husband Chris and I are launching a new website for deaf dogs and their owners hopefully by next week. What that means is we have had a very hectic week. So far in the last five days I have done somewhere around 40 posts and I am doing the new site in Wordpress. I'm really not one to readily embrace change but now I am learning Wordpress. I like blogger but it has many glitches for example, I can never reply to folks who leave comments. When I try to leave a comment to reply, blogger makes me log in over and over and over again. I usually give up because I get so frustrating so with that being said, I want to thank all of you for coming to visit us here at Lexi's World. Lexi and I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and smiles with us.

I did get a chance to go to a few of my favorite blogs on Saturday morning (around 12:30am) and I really enjoyed my friend Kristin G's amazing photo gallery she put up for the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop. You see Kristin has the most elegant dogs I have ever seen and she decided to do a photo layout of two of her dogs in black and white.

Kristin is the head writer and photographer over at Dogs Rock blog. She has totally inspired me by posting some of the most beautiful black and white photos of her dogs Zoe and Xander. For Special Effects Sunday this week I decided to dedicate this post to Kristin G. and Dogs Rock because I think they ROCK!


Nitro is Clark Gable in this photo

This is his Paul Newman pose...

I shot these for the launch of our new deaf dog website. I will let you know what the new web address is as soon as we get things a little more organized.

In the photos above I added a little twist because I love Nitro's blue eye. I went 90% black and white and 10% with a little color so I could draw attention to Nitro's colored patch over his blue eye.

Happy Special Effects Sunday! Thanks for following The World According To Lexi. According to my dog Lexi, you are the best!

Lexi and Christina

  2. This is SO cool Christina, and Nitro's photos: AMAZING!! He's gorgeous, and these should be framed! I'm really excited about the launch of your new site. Thank you for the thoughtful dedication!

  3. I would love to know how to do that, select a single color or area to keep in color.
