meet zuri & pippi

these two cuties are the cats of a dear friend of mine. it was easy to take pictures of zuri (the tabby cat), she was fascinated by the noise the camera made when focusing, so she can be considered as the perfect cat-model :) little pippi was a bit shy in the first place, but in the end she loved posing for me as well.

meet oscar & leonie

this is the second part of my dog-project. this time i had to take pictures of two dogs, it was kind of challenging sometimes, but i am totally satisfied with the pictures.
again, the humans who owned the dogs were lovely people and they are more than happy with the picutres of their pets. that’s exactly what i was hoping for :)

meet bashi

as you may have noticed, i love dogs (and cats) and i’m also a big fan of taking pictures of dogs or cats. so i came up with the idea of offering dog owners to take pictures of their pets. bashi was the first dog i had in front of my lens, he’s a young and powerful crossbreed and reminded me a lot of my dog-fried kira (she has more fur though, but the fur colour is very similar). on top of that, his owner was very nice too, she’s a young woman around my age.

i had a great time shooting this beautiful boy :)

dog portrait

i met this cute dog a few days ago when i was on a walk with kira (i took tons of pictures of her too, they’re coming soon).
i observed him for a while and had to smile because he was kind of cheeky, didn’t really listen to his owner and was stealing all the dog toys he could find at the dog-walking-area. fortunately he had no problem with me taking his portrait ;)

weekly photo challenge: companionable

kira, the dog was my companion for the last week, i took care of her while her owner was away on a festival in hungary.
thanks a lot to bernhard for entrusting your beauty to me.

we had a really good time with lots of walks and ball-playing and i got used to having a dog faster than i thought. it’s great to have a loyal companion on your side, she brought a lot of joy into my life and i have to admit i really miss her.
i wanted to take more outside-pictures of her but unfortunately my camera is STILL under repair, so i took some shots with the diana, i’m very curious about the results!
