For the Love of Dog

In late October I was accepted into a project that was sponsored by the Richmond District Public Library that required each participate (20 out of 100 photographers were accepted) to record what was "happening" in the Richmond District.  The project was being lead my award-winning photo-journalist Fredrick Larson...so that was an added plus!! 

We had approximately six weeks to come up with a story and document it through our photography.  I had never tried photo-journalism and just the thought of having to approach people and ask to take their photograph and then asking them personal questions started this introvert shaking...but a challenge to step out of my comfort zone! 

Right away I thought of my dog, Molly's, trainer.  She's a third generation Richmond District resident and has been a dog trainer for many, many years...and Molly loves her, of course!

So, after four meetings through October, November & December and lots of time thinking, talking & photo-taking I had eight of my images used in a story that I called, "For the Love of Dog in the Richmond District."  Oh, and these images will also be archived in the SF Public Library for use in research.
