June Photo Challenge - Day 10

This was one of two shots that almost didn't happen for me this weekend. Who knew that it would be so hard to find an animal?

My choices were this: go to the zoo, head into the woods, or approach a stranger and ask to photograph their pet. The first and second options were discarded due to the effort and time required, and #3 was just a little too creepy, even for me.

So, that left the mascot and I to drive around after dinner looking for a statue or something that at least resembled an animal. Luckily, we made it to the land of the “Broadway Bears” (aka the park behind the Legislative Grounds) before the sun set and were able to take a few shots of the great painted beasts.

  1. last week the Mister was out walking Indy. This van pulled up and 4 guys hopped out and asked if they could take a photo with him and our dog because they were doing a scavenger hunt and had to get a photo of a dog. My husband obliged-he's no stranger to the whims of creative people. They posed, holding up some signs related to the hunt and then piled back into the van and were off. Only Indy thought it was weird, as he's not a fan of cameras or strange men.

    I don't think it would be all that strange to ask someone to take a photo of their dog. Winnipeggers would definately be okay with it-they are a kind and accomidating people! :)
