Obviously reading the directions did the trick. (See yesterday.)

And the manual discarded at the side. Sadness. Outlived its usefulness :P

Good range of colors, the different tones of pink and green, together with the girl and the dog make this photo very rich of essence (wow a philosopher comment today)

Glad she got it to work! Dog still chilled out at least!

8 Jul 2009 9:06am

Barbara from Florida, United States

Priceless! I could see both yesterday and today's image in a frame together telling the story of what happens when you read directions, add sweetness and a furry friend.
Beau seems to be keeping an eye on things. Great timing to capture the blowing of the bubbles.

8 Jul 2009 3:27pm

@Barbara: Beau is enjoying recovering from his surgery; otherwise he would be in the middle of it.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

I bet Beau helped out although he doesn't seem to have moved.

8 Jul 2009 3:53pm

@Steve Rice: He was just grateful that he didn't have to step in and read the directions.

mo.langel from Courtelary, Switzerland

Joli petit instant de vie de famille, j'aime bien le regard indifférent du chien devant les bulles que soufflent la petite fille!

Beautiful capture! She obviously read the directions correctly! I love how the dog seems totally uninterested in the background. Interrupted nap time???
