First of all, this has been a sad week. There’s no internet in my dorm 😦 I posted this when I am in the office after work-time. Anyway, sorry if we can’t reply you soon.

Last week, I read a wonderful post by Susan at Life With Dogs and Cats called Getting Down and Dirty: Pet Photography Tips. It’s about taking pictures of our pet on the same level as them. I have such pictures when they are on their basking area, I haven’t yet done that when I set my babies on the garden because I was in some way didn’t to get dirty. I tried it last weekend and the results were great.

These are only a sample of 13 pictures, not the best (I will share my favorite, which I consider the best soon πŸ™‚ )


All three of them but the result was blurry because it focused more on the grass

These are Kroten’s pics:


Kroten looked like a dinosaur πŸ˜‰


Enjoying the sun a bit too much


This is how sunbathing position should be πŸ˜‰


“Wanna join sunbathing with me?”

Kurome’s Pics :

(In the garden, Kurome is always a mover, never stops walking. It was difficult to take his pictures)


Stop moving around for a while will you!!!


The camera was not fast enough #sigh


My favorite…Kurome the flash πŸ˜‰


Yup…he was still moving!!

Papoe’s pics:

(He could act cute anytime)


Small turtle in a big world


His cute smile always wins everyone’s heart πŸ˜‰


Trying to take cover under my folded leg


Most comfortable place for a turtle: Mommy’s thigh πŸ˜‰

Hope you like those pictures πŸ™‚

Happy Thursday 13, you can see more T13 > here

    Hi! I just started a blog, its at I may have borrowed a few ideas.

  2. These are great pictures! I love the one with the three of them! And Kurome the flash! And Papoe’s smile! So cool to be on the level with them and experience the world from their perspective!

  3. the photos are wonderful! I try to get down to their level but often I don’t have time or I forget. I think with your turtles, that’s the way to go! Hope your internet comes back soon.

      Thank you Caren πŸ™‚

      I know how you feel, plus it’s easier to take picture from our level.
      They said the net will be normal again on Tuesday…I really need it back. I am now in my office on Saturday so that I can reply my comments, read blogs and update my blog

  4. I’m sorry to hear about your internet problems. At least, you have Papoe’s smile to get you through it. Your pictures are really good. I think you’re right to get on the same level and as close as you can to your turtles. Thanks for sharing.

      Thank you Mia, it’s so hard without internet nowadays, we depend so much on it.
      That’s true, they are my source of happiness πŸ™‚

      Thank you for stopping by πŸ™‚

    Talk about a bunch of gadabouts!

    So the internet thing isn’t just me? I’m so glad! Wait, no. I’m sorry it’s down for you.

    I love these photos! It’s so interesting how each turtle behaves differently in the outdoors.But the one thing they have in common is that they’re all just TOO cute!! πŸ˜€

    You have some great pics there. I feel your pain of no internet, as I am currently without home access (it’s killing me, LOL!). My T13

  12. BJ Bangs says:

    Great photos. Even 1 day without the Internet is intolerable

  13. Bikramjit says:

    Lovely pictures good to see the little ones after a long long time. ..

    The yellow one spooks me a little bit – it doesn’t look “right”. Is it a special breed of turtle, or is it a strange “sport” of the green turtles I”m used to seeing?
    Hate to ask an ignorant question, but I truly don’t know the answer.
    Won’t you come link up at

  15. Looking good Kroten, Kurome and Papoe.

  16. slatescoria says:

    These pictures are so good! Papoe, you are so cute!

  17. Binky says:

    Kurome just likes to get his exercise!

    It is nicer to take shots from their level. That’s a good rule to follow with any subject.

  18. slatescoria says:

    hey! uh, Novroz? would you mind if I drew your turtles? Could I draw some of the pictures on this post?

  19. Joyce says:

    These pictures are great. If they aren’t your best, the others must be amazing.

  20. Wow. Gorgeous photography and models. Your foot looks like a safe haven.
