For fourteen years, Bob went to the Mon County Canine Adoption Center to take the "Pet of the Week" photo for the paper. Hundreds of dogs and cats got a second chance for a home through these photos.
The month stamps represent every week, every month Bob went there, regardless of his work load, regardless of the weather.
The wood veneer cameras, along with the negative frames and paper, always fit the photographer theme. The fence and wire represent the cages the animals live in prior to adoption.
The wire was a little hard to adhere to the page, so I used a combination of modeling paste, brads and glue.
Bob resigned his job at the newspaper a few weeks ago. He is a tremendously talented photo journalist and often times taken advantage of by editors and young sports writers who expected him to write the stories, take videos and edit videos. He'd work late evening, both weekend days, split shifts. . . and missed his time with me. I guess you could say he's given himself a "second chance" to be happy. He's currently driving a traffic escort vehicle, leaving work when I do and returning home when I do. We're happy and doing ok!
