I Heart Faces–Pets

_MG_0252 wm

This week’s theme at I Heart Faces is “Pets”. My favorite. I love photographing animals, whether it’s my dog, a deer or bird in the back yard, or some CRAAAZY bug that my boy captures. And, I love looking at everybody’s entries during Pet Week, too; so many sweet pups, cuddly kitties, and beasties of all kinds. This shot was taken last weekend at the Atlanta Steeplechase; the outriders came up to the fence to let us have a closer look at their magnificent steeds, and this fine fellow actually posed. Beautifully, I might add; what a head! It was a very bright yet overcast day, and the sky was totally blown out, so I added a Florabella sky texture that was a bonus with one of her sets. I think it makes it look like a vintage postcard.
