Wow!!! :D Maybe you could plan a trip to LA California and take pics of pets and people here :) People are BOUND to be different :) Maybe the travelling, seeing others, observing differences might inspire more in your already inspirational days :)

(haha XD I am TOTALLY proposing that for the selfish idea of getting my own dog's picture taken by you XD)

Es said...

I love these dog portraits. And the pigeon! How did you get him/her to pose with the pink background, photoshop?

colormekatie said...

nope! I set up the background outside and waited for some birds to walk by. This pigeon walked right up to the background and just stared at me. I think he wanted his picture taken!

Dee said...

Katie, that is so beautiful! Wish I can bring my bunny there... =)

So colourful... Love it!!!

You know today by visiting some weblogs from all over the world I got to the point that this damn Mahmood Ahmadinejad (Iran's president) and the whole regim has made me upset and hopeless. I see lots of fun happiness in your own worlds. Your photos are MAGNIFICENT because I took in that I can spread love every where I want.

Becky said...

If I were a care bear, I would be shooting a rainbow out of my tummy right now with all the love I feel for these pictures. And that was possibly the creepiest analogy I've ever heard, but it's the truth.

katie girl said...

Katie:
If we have a cute pup we'd love to be a part of your project, how do we do that? He just got himself a mohawk so I think Bojangles would make a great addition!
LOVE YOUR BLOG!!
