I am truly in awe of people who do pet photography for living.

The photo below was captured in 2010. I’ve taken hundreds since, and though many of them are cute, they are rarely tack sharp. Pumpkin isn’t a fan of having his picture taken, especially by my big camera (he is better with the iPhone). Oftentimes as soon as I put the camera to my eye he gives me a “lovely” view of his back side. Not as cute as the face below, right?

While I’m on the subject of pet photography check out Alan Hess’ book Pet Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots. I had the privilege of shooting with Alan at the Ocean Beach Worldwide Photo Walk a couple of years ago. He is a great instructor, San Diego local, and animal lover. (I’m adding this book to my Amazon wish list right now…Christmas is coming!)

Today I am thankful for:

  • A clean bill of health for Pumpkin. Today was his annual vet visit and aside for a recommendation to cut back on carbs (i.e. dry food) he is in good health. I’m also grateful for the kind, caring folks at the Kensington Veterinary Hospital. They take GREAT care of Pumpkin!

What are you thankful for today?
