Hello, world! I am participating at the lovely „Color Palette Blog Walk“ Round 4, which means I fought with Gimp for the last couple of hours to create a Color Palette from a photo taken by me, and other nice people around the world are doing the same today. I would love you to visit all the other photographers, too, and have a look at theirk work:

This round’s topic, chosen by Brandi, is „achievement“. I find it a difficult one. Finally I chose a lovely picture (well, I think it’s lovely) of anotherone’s achievement I wrtote about earlier today.
For visitors new to this blog, I’ll give you a little background: I am a pet dog trainer in Frankfurt/Germany, and I work with the most interesting people to help them train their dogs. Additionally, some dogs come and visit me without their owners. Some of them just because they are home alone while mommy is working, some because they need to learn something special or they benefice from walking in a larger group of dogs.
Mauri, whom you see on the picture, is one of them. He is a young athletic boy and rather shy. When he comes here, he is confronted with my own dog, Habca, a sincere lady, and with Nomi, a foster dog who used to be aggressive around other dogs and is not so inclined to share her privileges. They both use to give Mauri a sincere look and he does whatever they want… but over the last months, he developed his techniques to cope with the ladies. So what you see on the picture is the very first time Mauri jumped up on the sofa. I think he looks very proud of himself, and quite self-assured. Nobody protested. So for me, this picture has a inspiring sense of achievement in it.
I hope you like it, too.
Also, it is my very first color palette. So this is an achievement in itself, isn’t it? ;-) I like the shades of grey with the muted yellow and the bright red. Of course, I used Instagram with the picture.
