Day 52 of 365, Fluffydoos!

Day 52 of 365, Today's Daily Photo Challenge, Subject is Fluffy

I used another picture as submission for my photo challenge, but was reminded of this capture.  I took this picture of the little girl and her poodle at the Krewe of Mutts Mardi Gras Parade on Jan. 31, in Baton Rouge, LA. The Krewe of Mutts is a special event for the fancy pooches to parade and show off their owners...or, is it the other way around?!!! I hope to attend again next year, as it is a terrific, family friendly, fun parade.

The photo above was my favorite of the series.  Below, you will see the sequence in which the shots happened.  When she spotted me with my long lens, she could tell I wanted to take a picture of her pooch. O' there she went...!  She started trying to make her little doggy look at the camera.  Sweetly, she started calling her name to get it's attention.  Let's just call her 'Fluffy'.  Snapping her fingers, she said, 'Fluffy, look, look!'  She wanted to make sure that I got a pretty picture of  her Fluffy.  Fluffy was a bit confused, so she hustled and grabbed Fluffy up to herself.  Proudly, she turned her around to face me.  Can't you just see the love she has for pet?  I love how she loves her Fluffy.  Obviously, she wanted me to love her pet too.  Isn't that what we do with our family, especially our very own children or grandchildren?  We want others to appreciate their specialness, just like Fluffy!

'I Wasn't Ready!' Bloopers & Hillarious Outakes

"Uhhhh...What is buzzing over there?""It's ON ME!" 

"oooooh, She wuuuuuuuuuvs me."
I had a great time on this engagement photo shoot with this couple.  We got some beauties but I also got some doozies!  I think I got snap happy.  When I was going through the images, these hillarious outakes cracked me up.  I sent them to the then bride-to-be in a 'Bloopers' slideshow.  Thankfully, she laughed and loved them so much, she wanted me to send the slideshow to all her friends! 

For me, that fourth one 'Takes The Cake!'
