It’s a new year so that means it’s time for a new 52 week project. This year It’s Hanna! For those of you unfamiliar with my 52 week projects I will give you some background. In 2013 I found a group inside of Flickr that was called 52 weeks 4 dogs and the title is pretty self explanatory. I’m not sure how I found it or if someone invited me but I joined up and started with the now passed Pete as my first subject. From there everyone has gotten a turn except for our dog Sam who passed away during the first year I started the project…he never got his chance.
Week 1 we headed out to the Rock Island trail outside of Toulon. This was while I was still off work for the holidays so we had some time to try different things for the week. This year I switched camera systems so I have been even more energized to head out and capture new images. I always use a leash for my dogs because most of the time they can’t be trusted off leash except maybe Miles in certain areas. Hanna is not use to being on a leash and gets a little worried when I tie her up and walk away. I think she will get use to it soon.
Week 2 and we have snow!! Lots of it. I don’t remember how much snow we got but I think it was about 6-8 inches. At least it was on the weekend so I had time to get it cleaned up before starting the work week. As you can see Hanna is unaffected by the white stuff.
Week 3 brought us the Polar Vortex! Ugh yeah we opted to stay inside for that weeks photo. With all the snow and deceiving sunshine it did make for some great window light. Hanna was just looking outside hoping it would get nice soon….We all are Hanna.
Week 4 we’re back inside. I think I had a day off during this week so I spent some time trying to get a studio shot of each of my dogs. Hanna did better than I thought she would but was having trouble looking at the camera.
That’s it for now. More to come.
