This week’s challenge for the 52 week project was opposites attract. I thought I was going to use other pets for this challenge but when I pulled out the camera to do some work Boo (being the dog child of a pet photographer) went and sat in front of the lens and waited! Good dog…. oh, oh, those are my opposites! Good Boo and Bad Boo.
Good Boo waited to get his photo taken, Bad Boo heard my toast pop up and jumped up and grabbed it out of the toaster. He’s a dog of many personalities. Oh, but they are both so cute.
What about your dog, do you have a sweet little angel one minute and a little Tasmanian devil the next?
Our theme for the 52 Week Project is Black and White. Normally I don’t tell anyone what the theme is ahead of time but I was on the phone with my lovely mother this week and told her. She said that the TV show I Love Lucy used different colors of gray instead of using just black and white to give it more depth and that’s why the TV show looked so good for it’s time. It’s a great show and sometimes I get to watch an episode late at night. I think the episode I always remember is the candy factory. Below is a tribute to I Love Lucy and the candy factory, only instead of candy, Boo wanted to use dog biscuits. Honestly, I would have preferred the chocolate but Boo’s the boss. As most dogs are the boss of their humans.
Time to showcase Denver in this week’s 52 Week Project, the theme is our town. Denver is a beautiful city and I’m not going to show it. Sorry. Normally I love to have pictures of my beautiful city in the background but the timing of this post coincided with an annual event that happens in Denver every year, the National Western Stock Show. The stock show is one of the largest rodeos in America and 600,000 to 700,000 people attend every year. This is the stock show’s 107th year and you can read about it’s history here. It is definitely a part of Denver’s character along with micro brews, the Broncos, bicycling and super nice people.
The stock show is 16 days and the ceremony starts with a parade downtown. I believe it is the only parade I’ve ever seen that has 30 or 40 Texas long horns running down the street. There are a lot of different events to attend, including a dog agility competition, I went to see the bull riders. They are interesting fellas for sure. One of riders still had half his face paralyzed from his last competition!
Notice the feet above the head? This is not the correct way to ride.
Levitating bull. He’s making it look easy.
Ok, this is not part of the bull riding event. This is part of the Livestock show the sheep were entered in a breeders competition but, they were so cute I had to include them. Baaaaa.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to Denver, come back any time.
Tails, tails, tails. That’s our project for this week. Anything on the other side of the face. I have to say some dogs have really cute back ends and some are not so cute. So depending on the doggie or kitty I may or may not get a booty shot. One thing I do love is when a dog is curled up and wraps his tail around his nose. So cute and cuddly. So here is my shot this week for the 52 week project.
Boo with his tail around his nose. I just want to snuggle up with him.
Here’s the tail end of my post… now head on over to Windsor Pet Photographer, NCS Pet Photography to see what she has posted this week and follow the blog ring until you get back to StinkDog Photos. Have a great week everyone!
It’s not just time for another 52 Week Project… it’s time for a road trip! That’s the theme this week. Aimed to get us get up and moving. I love to find new places for photo shoots and this time instead of picking a beautiful outdoor park I picked a couple of murals around Denver. I love the bright colors with Boo Radley’s dark black fur and it’s nice to have urban shots sometimes.
