For about 18, hours, anyone trying to see my webpage got instead an album of dog photos. No one complained — maybe no one was looking, maybe they preferred the dogs.
Many of the pictures I took in the Santa Fe Photography Workshops cannot be posted, because we were working with individuals in their homes. But I took a bunch for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society with no people in them. The plan was to include people, but the complexities of model releases and a snowstorm when time was short made it easier to just go with the dogs. (The cats weren’t good subjects –the dogs adored having me pay attention to them.)
So for those who would like a dose of cute dog pictures — ahem, I meant artistic images of a companion species — here is a subset of them.
