Project 52: Isolation

Sorry I’ve been gone so long, folks.

September was a wild and crazy month at Chez Evans, and October seems to have started that way too.

I just got finished unloading around 60 potted mums (a school fundraiser), and I am beat. I could really use some isolation right now so I could rest and recover.

Despite how hectic it was, this week I managed to carve out some time to take a pet photo.

This week, I’m featuring Knox.

Isolation is a way of drawing attention to the subject of the photo. It really makes sense. If the subject is isolated from everything else, you can’t help but be drawn to it.

Here he is holding his favorite stuffed toy, a gecko he calls Gecky. Yes, he does call it that. I speak dog. Knox is isolated on a yellow background. (It’s actually our wall).

Chloe wanted in on the action, too, so I told her I’d publish a photo of her.

I tried to get her to sit, but she wasn’t having it.

Time to Visit Tracy

Tracy lives in that extremely isolated area of Dallas-Fort Worth, so go visit Tracy Allard of Penny Whistle Photography fetching portraits in Coppell and surrounding communities in Dallas – Fort Worth, Texas.

Follow the link at the end of her blog to the next photographer’s blog, and repeat until you get back here.


Good to have you (and your sense of humor) back Tim!

Becky looks like a well loved tou?. Lucky dogs, and lovely photos. But what are potted mums? I’m imagining all the school mums with their feet in potting mix??

Mums… as in the flower

Looks like Gecky is well loved. The depth of field in Chloe’s photo is great! Hope you got to rest!

Holy cow… 60 mums! That’s a lot! You deserve some isolation! Knox looks like a pretty smart cookie. Chloe looks like a snuggle bug.
