Project 52 Photo Challenge : In Their Element (6/52)

Uh, is it Friday already? Wow. Where did the week go?

That must mean it’s time for another Project 52 entry, though! This week’s theme was titled In Their Element, and the goal was to capture a pet doing what it does best, whether it’s a breed-specific job (like a Border Collie herding sheep) or just one of those individual quirks that makes each pet unique. Since it’s 90 degrees, I couldn’t really get Bruce to pull a sled or bound through someĀ snow, but I did capture the Husky Element in a slightly different way…it’s Coat Blowing Season! Hooray!!! :( (sigh)

Yeah…Fur everywhere. If you own a Husky (or any double-coated breed, really), you’ll sympathize with me here. It looks like someone’s been picking cotton in my living room. I have chunks of Bruce fur in my bed, in my car, on the ceiling…I even pulled some out of the battery compartment in my camera. Here he is after one brushing (oh and by the way, he needs this every day during coat-blowing season….Yeah).

Best of all, this week’s challenge gave me an excuse to test out my new toy — a Canon 55mm f/1.2FL, circa 1968, modified to fit onto an EF lens mount. I just love the richness that this lens gives me — definitely my new favorite toy ;)

Next up, let’s check out Stephanie Madeline of Chase & Snap Pet Photography for her take on this week’s theme!
