This week’s theme for the Pet Photography 52 Weeks group is Urban. The dictionary definition is “of, relating to, or designating, a city or town.” I live in a small southern town on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay and I chose to escort my Chloe around town at various spots. Trying to get a clean shot can be a bit of a challenge when the background one way is cars and busy streets, while the other way is a parking lot. In addition, it’s equally challenging to take photos and hang on to a dog who’d rather explore her surroundings. But, I managed a few. Opening the aperture wide to get a really blurry background helped eliminate – somewhat – the unwanted stuff.
The photo below is several months old. I took it in Canada when I was mentoring with Scruffy Dog Photography. This lovely old girl is Charlotte who, I believe, is about 13! This shot was taken in an alley between two old brick buildings. Very Urban.
To see another interpretation of this urban theme, go to Elaine Mueller Tweedy at I Got The Shot Photography and take a look-see.
Do you want your own urban shot? If you live on the Gulf Coast, visit my website Ono Pet Photography and let’s arrange a fun session.
