Project 52 - Shoes ~ Vancouver area pet photography

For the second week in a row the new theme was posted for the pet photography Project and an older photo jumped to my mind. Several years ago I did this:

Now, we are supposed to shoot new photos according to the theme, so I couldn't just use that old one, but before I got a chance to do a new-and-improved version I went out to the barn with a friend of mine. And, once there, I couldn't resist a cliche "shoe" shot...

I really thought that might be it, but then at the eleventh hour I grabbed this new-and-improved version of Rivet in boots. She was not amused...

  1. Very cute - and I want those gumboots!

  2. Haha, this was exactly what I was going to do with Lucas and my barn boots. Love it!

  3. The boots are great. I also had an unamused model this week!

  4. Fantastic....loved that you could get an updated version. I can't imagine getting my pups to do this. Love the steps behind Rivet too.
