Project 52 | Tricks

It was my turn to choose the theme this week for the Project 52 challenge! I love teaching my pets to do tricks, and they love performing for food. I thought it would be fun to have a “tricks” theme, so we can show off what our pets can do. Buddy knows quite a few tricks, but I’m only going to show you a couple. Of course, he can sit and lay down and shake, but he’ll also beg, speak, roll over, balance treats on his nose, and even bring in the newspaper. He will do anything for food, so teaching him tricks was pretty easy. He’s a ham!

Project 52 | Friends

The adorable new Project 52 theme is “Friends!” Buddy has a lot of friends, human and animal, so the hard part was choosing which friend to photograph him with. There’s my horse, Rydell, but I forgot my camera when I took Buddy to the barn with me this week. There’s Lucy the rabbit, but she likes to be uncooperative. Olivia Jane loves Buddy, but sometimes she just has too much energy for the old guy. In the end, I decided to choose Buddy’s smallest friend, Gus the hamster.

I just love this patient dog–he lets the hamster crawl on top of him, lets the guinea pig hide underneath him, and lets the horse sniff him and follow him around. And on top of that, he’s patient with me and all of the crazy things I do to him. You’re the best, Bud.

jennifer - love these!!! what a good and patient boy Buddy is. Gus and him are adorable!!!

great shots!

Marianne Cherry - that is one amazingly tolerant, patient, and adorable pooch! Love it!

Alicia Kapheim - Wow, impressive Buddy! So calm.
Based on the frenzied chases and (sadly) vole deaths in my back yard, I am certain all 3 dogs in my yard would not be so accommodating!

Deanna - These are great! I really love that third photo. Buddy is awesome!!

Project 52 | Double Exposure

I got to try something new and challenging for this week’s Project 52 theme! The theme was “Double Exposure,” which is where you take two or more photos, and your camera blends them into a single image. It was a lot trickier than I had anticipated! I headed out to the barn before the sun went down so I could photograph Rydell for the challenge. He’s such a funny boy. He stopped eating his hay to watch me as I ran all over the barn, finding different angles and objects to photograph. I must have been very entertaining! Rydell is a big ham and loves to do tricks for cookies. Every time I tried to take a closeup image of his face, he stuck his nose into the camera and tried to give me kisses. A few times he smiled for me, too! I love how eager he is to please.

While most of the double exposures that I captured were pretty bad, I did end up with a couple that I was happy with. This first one is more subtle, combining Rydell’s portrait with the texture of a wood post. The second image turned out better than I expected, too. I’m definitely going to be playing with multiple exposure more now, it’s a great challenge.

Enjoy the images!
