Fun With Photo Filters

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim.  So there Cam and I were, out on a nice walk with Mom the other day.  Mom was snapping a couple pix of us with her iPhone, then started playing around with some of the built-in filters.  I thought I'd show you all how it went.

Everything was fine and normal ...

"Check this out, Zimmie!"
"These are our tracks from earlier.  No one else has been out walking lately for some bizarre reason."

... until we got to the corner.

"Brace yourself.  I feel it coming on, Cam-a-roo."
I can feel something funny too, Zim!  What's happening?"

Mom switched into "filter mode".

"This is a strange one!"
"I feel antique or something."

She jumped out ahead of us and tried to get us walking toward her, looking at the camera.

"Not gonna happen, Mom."
"Zimmie... everything looks bizarre!  You look like a black and white Sibe!"

"Mom does these things sometimes, Cam.  Just ignore her."
"OK.  But I feel too warm in this filter!  And it doesn't go with our snow!"

Mom didn't think that warm/retro filter went with the snow, either, so she went a bluer route:

"This is better!  I feel cooler now."

"I do, too, but it's still mighty strange!"

I keep forgetting that Cam hasn't been here forever and isn't used to some of Mom's crazy ideas.  It seems like she's always been my sister and friend!

Anyway, that's the news from here today - unfiltered and filtered.  Ha roo roo roo!  Have a great Saturday!

Play bows,


  1. I like the blue filter too!!

    Lovely photos once again!

  2. WE like the plain COLOR pics the best... but the BLUE filter isn't bad.
    However, it is DIFFICULT to show SNOW in any color we LIKE.. except YELLOW. JUST SAYIN.

  3. Zimmie really does look like a completely different Sibe!

  4. Crazy parents and their crazy flashy beasts. *sigh* Perhaps there's some sort of self-help groups we could send them to! ;-)

  5. I like those filters...the warm one and the cool one. Did you guys watch that game today? Momma said it was said and Daddy said he was done with the Chiefs....til next year :0)
    Mom did a post the other day that made her think of Zim's feety feets hanging over the edge. Does he still do that? We haven't seen any pics of his feetys since we've been back. I hope you guys are enjoying your weekend!

  6. Whoah!! Those are some pretty cool filters!!

    Happy Weekend!

  7. Wow guys you are having some snow there. Sunny and mild today here. Love the pix in blue. Have a serene Sunday and get some big easy on today.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. Your mom is getting pretty fancy with that camera work. I wonder if she could take snow photos of me without me looking like a black blob?

    Warmer days, right?


  9. I quite like the effects and I know your mum enjoys tinkering with her camera, just like my Barrie is always doing.

  10. oh, the things we have to put up with from our folks, eh? hee hee! you both look cool as antique pups :D

  11. Mommas do awfully weird things sometimes, don't they?
