It’s a new year and I’m so excited to begin a new (old) project!  I’ve participated in a “52 Weeks Project” with an amazing group of pet photographers in the past but for various reasons, wasn’t able to in 2016.  One of the things I’d like to be better at this year is making time for creative project, so here we are!  Every week, a group of pet photographers chooses a theme and we all take our own photos that fit that theme.  On Fridays, we share our photos on our blogs.  At the end of each blog post, you’ll see the link to the next photographer in the group.  If you keep following the links at the end of each post, you’ll see all of the photos for the week.  Looking through pet photos is the perfect way to begin Friday!

This week’s theme is “Black and White.”  I almost never work in back and white so this was a bit of a challenge for me.  Add to that, Iris has gone mostly deaf in her senior years, so “stay” is not always in her vocabulary (I think she takes some liberties with the fact that adorable senior dogs can get away breaking rules).  She can definitely still smell when I have cookies!  So here she is, ready for her close up in black and white.

Ready to see more “black and white” pet photos?  Next up is Lisa with Browning Photo in Columbus, Ohio.  Don’t forget to keep following the links in each blog post to see all of this week’s photos, and make sure you check back here next Friday to see what our next theme will be!




  • I love senior dogs and she’s a stunning beauty! The black and white really shows off her coat against that pop of black nose. Your composition lends itself well to her strongest sense, her sense of smell.

  • Oh my goodness. Iris’ nose is in the shape of a heart! She is adorable. I love that close up, and those ears! So glad you are able to participate this year!

  • Iris is beautiful! Nice job with the black and white – I’m the same way in that I don’t do too much with it! Love the first image with the trees in the background – the mood it portrays. And exactly what Elaine pointed out – her heart shaped nose! LOVE! Great post!!!
