Project 52 – Week 37 – Pets and People

Friday morning means a new Project 52 post for you to feast your eyes on. Some of the members of the Beautiful Beasties Network (a professional pet photographers’ forum) are taking on the challenge of doing pet-related photography, with a theme that changes every week, for an entire year. The goal is to start shooting outside the box, to challenge ourselves as photographers and to expand our vision and talents. So far I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my participation, and I have learned to look at my dogs and their accoutrements in a different light (and at a different angle).

Photographer Kelly Coyle chose pets and people for this week’s assignment.  She had this to say – “This week I wanted to focus on the special bond that pets have with their people so include a pet(s) and a person in your photo. The goal is to show the bond so if that means you only need the person’s hand/feet/legs in the photo that’s fine. Have fun!”

This is my old dog Farley.  His favourite place to be is on the couch, next to my mom (his Grandma).  My folks have been away for two weeks, and he has looked like a tiny sail boat adrift at sea, all alone on the couch.  My folks got back Friday through the day, and I took this picture Friday night.  This shows their love for each other, and the bond that they have.  To me, this picture is worth a million words.

I you’ve enjoyed taking a peek and my Old Dog and one of his People. As this is a blog ring, please continue on to Toronto-based pet photographer Posh Pets Photography’s blog for more awesome photos . Once you’re done with Karen’s blog, keep clicking through the links at the end of each blog until you get back here, and you’ll have seen all of the Project 52 blog posts for this week.

  1. I enjoyed taking the tour de Photographer! All the show photos, and ring candids rarely show these kind of moments, the ones that make it possible to do the rest.

  2. I love Farley. He looks so huggable! Glad you liked the theme.
