We know how much makeover can change someone’s looking and we might not know it does same thing to dog as well. In Photographer Grace Chon‘s interesting photo series “Hairy”, Chon explores how shampoo and scissor can change the looking of dogs. Moreover, Chon specifically focuses on Japanese-style grooming, which doesn’t follow the usual breed standard cuts and rules for grooming that we’re used to seeing. Rather, the emphasis is on making the dog look as adorable as possible. It is quite fun to see the before and after photos side by side. However, I am not quite sure some of the cuts make the dog more adorable and somehow, some of them look kindly unhappy to me.

Superhero action figures aren’t just for kids! Photographer Edy Hardjo uses detailed, high-quality action figures to put some of our favorite superheros into hilarious positions and create below playful scenes, such as mightiest heroes pee on a wall or scare of rat. To achieve such effect, miniatures have to be arranged, put on stands, and even partially disassembled. Then Hardjo will shot the photo after proper lighting and composition. At last, he needs to do some photo editing to make the figures look a little plastic and to remove all the action figure joins, as well as stands that keep the toys in place. Quite funny right?
Captured by Photographer Hendy Mp in the woods near his home in Sambas, Indonesia, a flying frog tries to hitch a ride on a giant African land snail’s back before realising it would be quicker to hop it alone. The funny part is the bright green Wallace’s flying frog was spotted giving the snail a quick kiss before it hopped onto its back where it sat for a few minutes. Not sure does the frog and snail know each other. If they do, what a nice friendship!
Since 20 years ago, Bristol-based photographer Peter Thorpe transforms his dogs into various animals and put his/her photo on the annual holiday card for his family, friends and clients. Instead of using Photoshop, Thorpe uses real props and set up some interest scenes to take these photos. Here’s a collection of photos that have appeared on his cards over recent years:
