About a Dog and a Chair

This week’s images are about a dog and a chair. 

Part of it was trying to change things up a bit. I amaze myself sometimes at how “in a rut” I can get in setting up shots. This chair is in my office and if truth be told, it has been appropriated by Hubble. But this morning, he was off outside chasing the squirrels, so I moved it–and Jack Henry–to the spot where the set-up table is usually put. As always, Jack Henry was a champ, though the pinky tones on his chest are a sign that he is getting worked up about his treat.

I also decided to take some photographs using the I-1 Impossible camera–a newer Polaroid camera developed by the folks at the Impossible Project. I am not sure it is available anymore-they seem to be throwing their energies into an updated version of the One-Step (and at a more reasonable price too I might add). I am still trying to figure the camera out and again, the film is a crap shoot-you just never know what you are doing to get. But the results were intriguing enough for me to want to continue experimenting with the camera. I took a picture of the polaroid and caught some glare so it is not exactly as it looks.

In speaking with a photography teacher who uses an 8 x 10 Polaroid almost exclusively, I was told to make the commitment to the camera–and to the film–and let things unfold. I might surprise myself. So it was exactly what I needed to hear in moving forward with this camera and its process.

Today’s Dog Quote:

“If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.” 

-Albert Einstein
