Centennial Village & new book project

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.

I rescued him and then he rescued me.
