This week's theme for Pet Photography is "Under" - and it presented it's own challenges. This week we have been sick, not only us humans, but 2 of the dogs have had a few bad days with issues. We are lucky, but Hurricane Michael presented us with a few small rain showers at the wrong time (they came in quick and left almost as fast). I'm not complaining as we aren't getting much of anything from the hurricane, but the pan handle of Florida will have been slammed hard by the time you read this.
We took the entire family for a walk at a local park in hopes of getting a 'family portrait' for this week's blog. A wonderful fallen tree is on this particular trail and the dogs would fit perfectly under this log! Jim took the time to get the dogs lined up while I did some snapshots of the dogs as he moved each one into the area. Then, out of nowhere, it's pouring rain! Needless to say, this photo shoot is over because I have 4 soaked dogs and all us humans were soaked too. We finished walking the trail in the rain, found a shelter and hung out until it stopped raining.
I think if the rain hadn't come in, we had a chance of getting a great family photo - but at least we got a snapshot of all the dogs together. (I could have gotten more depth of field, we could have removed the jumble of leashes and maybe harnesses - perhaps another time!)
For more pet photographers sharing their take on this theme, head over to visit Tracy Allard of Penny Whistle Photography fetching portraits in Coppell and surrounding communities in Dallas - Fort Worth, Texas and then head around the rest of the blog circle.
