For week 19 pet photography of blog circle Project 52 our theme was "angles." We were to interpret the theme however we wanted, whether it be angles in the image or shooting the subject at a different angle, or whatever else we could come up with to fit the theme. I've been taking Mr. Bojangles out a lot lately, with the improved weather, so that we could scout various locations. The location for our angle image is the wall at the Donald A. Spencer overlook in Cincinnati's Eden Park. You get sweeping views of the Ohio River Valley from the overlook. This upper level of Eden Park is also the location of the water tower from last week's "door" theme.
For my image, I chose to go with shooting my subject from a different angle. Since Mr. Bojangles is a small dog, I thought it would be great to perch him atop the post at the end of the wall; that way, he gets to be as tall as he feels. By shooting slightly below him, we can view him at an angle that shows his "great and mighty" personality to a T.
I also decided to play around with some editing software for this image, to make Mr. Bojangles even more impressive as he surveys his subjects and land.
