Project 52 – Texture (11/52) | Central Coast Pet Photographer

Beautiful Beasties is an international network of professional pet photographers, of which I am very privileged to be a part of. Within the network a group was formed for photographers who wanted to participate in a project, a 52 week project. Each week a theme is chosen and posted, then we all go out and take a photograph or series of photographs to fit the theme, then we all post onto our own websites and form a ring by linking all the websites. That means you can look at my images and then follow the links all over the world to see what other pet photographers are capturing.

The theme for week 11, chosen by Deanna from Denver in the USA, is Texture and our brief was…” We (photographers) love to talk bokeh but sometimes it’s great to see a lot of texture. It can be natural or man made, a background, foreground, a pet’s fur, a cat’s tongue. It can have a pattern or be abstract. Whatever it is the more detail you capture the more texture we will see. ”

Another great theme with loads of possibilities!

This week I will start off with my ‘Texture’ image, and then explain it….



Little furry butts!! How cute are they!? Can you see the ‘Texture’ difference? Short soft rabbit fur and longer silky guinea pig fur.

Now let me introduce you to today’s models, first up we have Solomon….



and next there is CC Jones…



Now CC was a bit of a poser so here are some extra shots of this sweet little piggie…




Does anybody remember Alfie from the ‘shoes’ week? Well you might have noticed him in the background above, Solomon and CC live with Alfie and they are just the cutest little trio of pets






I hope you can all appreciate the difference in ‘Texture’s” between these 3 Friends lovely fur. Now don’t forget this is a blog circle, so follow all the links, starting with Quad City Pet Photographer, Mary Beth Arnold to see what other ‘Texture’s’ have been captured this wee.

Thanks for joining me again this week, I can’t wait to see what next weeks theme will be.



  1. Awwwww…. These are wonderful Sharon! I’m partial to pigs, and as a pet groomer of the last 20 years, I can totally relate to the differences in fur textures! You captured it perfectly here!
