Sit Boo Boo

I really like this photo, although I’m sure it’s not for everyone. I took it in the same park out in Little Italy that I mentioned previously. The lady was aware of me, but since there were like six other photographers all trying to shoot her dog she wasn’t sure what I was photographing. I wanted her in the shot — particularly her hairdo. It’s sort of a fun street shot. Anyway, hope you like it.

So Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there. I was suppose to meet my dad for dinner later, sort of a combination Father Day and my birthday dinner, but something came up and he cancelled. We don’t really put a lot into these things anymore, not since my Mom passed away in ’04. I’ll give him his card next weekend, I suppose. Anyway, hope y’all are having a good day with your dads.

    Love this shot. I would never have thought to take it from that perspective. Great Idea. Her hairdo made me chuckle. Sorry to hear people are cancelling on you this fine weekend. I was stuck indoors all day yesterday trying to get this house ready for an Open House. It’s not till mid-July but I feel like there is so much to do, it’s overwhelming and stressful. Today, I just couldn’t do it again. I emailed a friend to go for brunch and I just continued on the theme and said f*ck it…I’m relaxing today.

    You were on the right track of this one BUT I really wish the dog was looking upward – THAT would have sent this image over the top. Kudos for thinking of such a unsual and creative perspective.

  4. Thanks Chloe & Tracy. Yeah, if the dog had been looking at me it would have been a better shot.

    You have posted a young girl, a young woman and an older woman in a row (minus the car). Kind of speaks of the joy of youth, the beauty of another age and the fading as we age. I love the up-do here.
