Pet Photography - Theme 'Doorway'

July 20, 2018  •  2 Comments

This week's pet photography theme is "Doorway".  It's been so hot here (and I am hearing it is elsewhere in the United States too) that I am being very careful when I take my dogs outside for their walk and play time.  As such, we aren't doing as much exploring as we do when the weather is a 'feels like 99 degrees' with high humidity and muggy before the sun comes up.

I'm sure all of you remember when you went to places as a child with your parents, you were often posed in front of whatever it was you were visiting - whether that was a "I was here" sign or just some scene at the place you were visiting.  Well, since I don't have children, I make one of the dogs do this in a lot of the places we visit.

Here's Jimbo sitting at the doorway of an building in the Ninety Six National Historic site in Ninety Six, South Carolina.

This particular area is probably not well known, but I do a lot of family history research and along that path, I kept running into "Ninety Six" district and "Abbeville" District within South Carolina.  As a result, I wanted to visit and see what exactly this particular part of South Carolina was.  This park is dog friendly (except for going into the buildings) so it was ideal for us travelling with Jimbo.

My second doorway photograph is more of a fun photograph - Abby was a good model, but she is alive and healthy (in case you are concerned).  This photograph is a take on 'Stairway to Heaven'.

For more pet photographers sharing their take on this theme, head over to visit Sandra McCarthy Photography serving NH and then head around the rest of the blog circle.

Great approach to this theme. Love that rustic doorway in your first shot!
Glad to hear puppy is alive and well. I need to try a composite one of these days. Way to be creative!
