Airlines and Dogs!

Well  now if this isn’t hilarious, I am not sure what is!  We  need to take our  two dogs on  a Trans-Atlantic flight and know that our big dog will have to go below in the cargo area in a cage.  Our little guy, we are hoping (keep your fingers crossed) “will make weight” (feels like a MMA weigh-in!) so he can fly in the cabin with me. He is a little chubby so we are nervous; my husband has suggested various methods to slim him down before the flight which is in a couple of months from running him on the treadmill to having him attend a Dog Weight Loss clinic LOL. I think he will make it but still, we have had quite a laugh while musing over our dilemna! Wish us luck!

Today I shot a B&W of a young girl with her dog Finnegan. It was the cutest thing;  she carries him everywhere. I don’t think his feet hit the ground for more than ten minutes a day. I am spending more time working on black and white technique and find the subtleties in tone and contrast really fun to work with.

A favourite quote from Susan Sontag…


“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality”. Susan Sontag







Here is Porkchop! He is a majestic Rotweiler who is owned by an American soldier who wanted his pal photographed. Porkchop was so well behaved it made our session a dream!

Chester is the cutest Corgie!
