Revisiting

I don't often revisit a previous theme. I am the kind of person who loves short term projects usually. But when I've found a passion, I can pursue and explore it exhaustively. Such is my recent discovery of PEG Farms Nature Reserve (see last post). Since the initial visit in June, I've made a point to return as often as I can. Fresh air, beautiful surroundings and fresh produce are very inspirational.

It's important to note that sometimes long term projects can lag and lose steam. Your original vision/views can shift or you can lose focus or passion altogether. Therefore it's often good to revisit an idea or a place. Seeing old work through fresh eyes can bring new perspective. If you have realised that this is happening, I've found these 8 steps from Trello to be useful in jumpstarting that creative spark again:

Must Love Dogs: Barbados Kennel Club 2017 Dog Show

If it is one thing my friends and acquaintances know about me, it's my love for and fascination with animals. This is especially true with dogs. I've loved dogs since I was little. I love their wet noses and their goofy antics. I love their loyal, loving natures and how their behaviour is sometimes almost human. They make some of the most compelling subjects in my view, especially when paired with their favourite humans. So when my photography club had the recent opportunity to attend the Barbados Kennel Club's 2017 Dog Show, I jumped at the chance to tag along and get some practice. With so many dogs and so little time, it was definitely a fun day shooting and catching up with friends. I also got a few new images for my Pets and Animals portfolio to be updated later. 

Special thanks to the Barbados Kennel Club for graciously accommodating our group. See you next year!

So if you love dogs as much as I do, check out the pictures below. Until next time...
