I can think of few better ways to spend a couple days than visiting with and photographing 21 cats and dogs. With great help from Carolyn Franks, we set up a mini studio at Centennial Village. While doing this we learned a lot from the residents who participated. They included veterans of different wars, retired professional dancers, teachers, a clinical psychologist, mothers and fathers. Most of their animal companions came from local animal shelters and rescue organizations. Many of the images we captured will be contenders for a new book.
I don't have a projected date for publication - though I think Spring, 2016 is feeling right.
