I have a talented friend, a professional photographer with a special interest in pets. Some of Debbie's photos are posted throughout this blog.
A few days ago, we went to the Palace of Fine Arts, in San Francisco, for Chou Chou's photo shoot. What a beautiful location on a beautiful day! Deb's husband, also a photographer, took this wonderful picture.
There were a lot of distractions for Chou Chou: birds in the water and overhead, buildings, bikes, baby strollers, and lots of tourists with cameras. It wasn't easy getting her to stay still and pose. ("I'm a curious puppy!")
It was also warm in the sun. While the rest of the country was suffering through blizzards, Chou Chou in California was panting. All the photos have her tongue sticking out. ("And your point?")
As Debbie took picture after picture, tourists gathered around to watch. Then they started taking photos of Chou Chou, too! They thought if someone is taking photos of this cute dog, she must be famous and they should take her picture, too. ("Oui! I am famous! I just need an agent!")
Here are some of the photos from the Palace of Fine Arts photo shoot.
