This one is coming straight off the cuff so to speak.. My style of writing is to not do so directly on the format of this site rather go about my day licking and chewing over what I have written YET FB has thrown me for a loop.
I cannot upload pictures and since I spend the greater part of my day yesterday preparing and taking pictures I wanted to get this particular series up..
Spirit is my main fur guy, he is a lot of things to me. First my friend and then a connecting energy to balance and remind me of my priorities in life. If you have read any of my other blog posts regarding journalling or “The Dress Metaphor” these will give you a better eye into what exactly I am talking about.
Any ways, Spirit is not a fan of picture taking and 2 years ago while trying to take pictures for the Rowena Pet Photo contest I made the decision to NOT go to him for pictures as he was not keen and you could see it in his body he was put out.
I find myself in a similar situation, trying to take cute Pin up pictures for a contest at the end of winter. Wanted to take them inside for the warmth yet being limited in photo locations.
We started inside which was a fail, I though the cat would be a well suited friend for the pictures yet looking back on what we captured I look like I was strangling him most of the time so we throw caution and our sensibilities and head outside. It is cold yet I want to not let this pass me by.
We head to the horses paddocks, I first start with Tadpole whom is not sure what I am up too and has no interest getting close, then Buckwheat whom is always willing to participate as there might be a treat involved for him and then last Spirit.
The first dress I had come outside in was a Rowena purchased dress meaning these pictures would qualify for the contest. I was wearing the white with black Polka dot.
Before I headed inside Spirit did show a small amount of interest when he grabbed onto my Triple 7 Kustom Bat sweater chain. As you can see I was a little taken back that he might find them yummy.
Once returning outside I bounced off the deck, skirt shifting and crinoline blowing I looked to the paddock and saw Spirit not sure of me so of course with a horse you head on over as exposure to scary stuff in a safe and fun way is good. I had changed into the reverse colour pattern dress that I purchased from another Vendor.
The series of pictures taken would later make me reflect. For they were really what I would have wanted to enter the contest with and yet it would not be as I am not wearing a Rowena purchased dress. What I did get from these pictures is the absolute love and admiration we have for each other and that as always in Spirit’s way he knew.
He knew these pictures were about us..xx
