I had just returned from a weekend at the Cape, so I had the beach on my brain. Pigs on the sea shore? Sure! I could do that.
I nabbed a few shovels from the cottage, dug through my old shell collection and made a quick backdrop (to show off my stunning artistic talent with crayons). I found a stripy towel, added some pigs and voila! I have Bertie and Pinni at the beach. I was amazed I got any decent shots considering they were from my little camera and without the flash (since I didn't want red-eye).
Pinniped is trying very hard in the first photo to look like a well-fed seal. Just look at the width of that pig! Black is slimming? <snirk> I don't think so. Pinni looks a bit more svelte in her solo photo. I think she was holding her breath.
Bertie's solo photo ended up being the best of the bunch; I selected it as the August photo. That's right, Bertie - pout at the camera. What a ham.
The whole thing, done in 30 minutes, with less than 60 shots. Why isn't the Christmas shoot like this?!?
