Meet Champ, The Happiest Dog in the World


20-year-old Candice Sedighan was recently flown out by Yahoo! (the parent of Flickr) to New York City to do a short interview about her incredibly sweet photography. Two days ago, Flickr posted that interview on their blog, sharing the behind-the-scenes story about the golden-haired subject that’s in most of her shots. Like Jessica Trinh’s photos, Sedighan’s feature a very happy and photogenic golden retriever. Surrounded by bubbles, autumn leaves and butterflies, 10-year-old Champ seems to be truly living the good life.

"I really like to capture the true essence with dogs, which is that they're always so happy," the college student told Flickr. "The time Champ and I spend together, he's just always beaming with happiness and you can really see that through my photos."

Sedighan claims that the near unbelievable photo of Champ with a butterfly on his nose is not the result of Photoshop but instead of “an extraordinary trained model,” her very own Champ. Though we can’t get enough of those perfectly timed shots, the ones that we love the most are the ones where Champ looks like he’s smiling. Is it just us or is his happiness, and overall love of life, infectious? (Maybe he could cheer up this super sad pug.)

Adventurous Photographer Treks to Remote Buddhist Village Before It Disappears

If you’re unfamiliar with Larung Gar, it may be because the small, remote town located in a far-flung corner of China has largely stayed out of the tourism spotlight. It is, however, a cultural and historical Tibetan treasure that has been undergoing tremendous changes in the past few decades, particularly in the midst of global controversy between Tibet and China.
