My Beloved (hubby) and Uno (from At Day's End, my highest scoring image so far). They were SO HILARIOUS that I was laughing so hard I almost could not press the shutter button.

I had to stop and ask them to do it again.

Aren't they HANDSOME!? *grin*


THANKS BUNCHES for the awesome week of votes and comments. A blue and a red ribbon in three days only comes around once in a lifetime for a girl like me. I'm on Cloud Photog! :)

I elected to use a rating table to decide on what value to assign during voting.
Here’s the table:
1 No Animal/People Interaction
2 Slightly Appealing, but no Animal/People Interaction
3 Moderately Appealing, but on Animal/People Interaction
4 Greatly Appealing, but no Animal/People interaction
5 Not Appealing, but possessing Animal/People Interaction
6 Slightly Appealing and possessing Animal/People Interaction
7 Moderately Appealing and possessing Animal/People Interaction
8 Greatly Appealing and possessing Animal People Interaction
9 Better than #8, and caused an audible sigh
10 Better than #9, and would likely declare it a favorite
