This weeks 52 project photo assignment was “in their element”. For my labs, Milton and Roger, their element is most definitely fetch. The photos taken this week were actually a followup to some photos I took before this assignment, but I wanted to include Roger in this set more. Milton & Roger can’t live without fetch. We have a few favorite fetch spots here in Winston-Salem which include our backyard and nearby Washington Park, but Milton & Roger don’t discriminate as long as they see a tennis ball come out.
It’s kind of cute: Milton always stares directly at the ball when we have it ready to throw. And Roger always looks indirectly at the ball, but don’t let him fool you — he’s really watching it peripherally and planning his next move. And yes, I got drooled on when I was laying under Roger for that last shot.
Now check out Claire Garrett’s Pet Photography Blog to see the rest of the groups take on “in their element” and keep going around until you come back to Milton & Roger.
