My Experimental progress
I wanted to develop my initial board based images further and decided to do this using the influences from Emma Kisiel and Tamany Baker in creating shrine like natural decorations around the animals bodies. I also took reference from Mary Jo Hoffman and her ‘Still’ images taken from her daily blog and taking care to use naturally found foliage to decorate around the animal’s bodies was important to me. I did not want my images to look to similar to other’s previously researched so I used my own method of scanning printed images previously taken from my board shoots and scanned these in with my strategically placed foliage that I had arranged around the edge of the animals.

i’m going to bury my little baby faye today in a bed of flowers and plant primroses on her grave because they are beautiful and delicate like she was. i only spent the last few months of her life with her, but she was such a brilliant friend and a beautiful soul. i’ll miss her dearly.

Not a pet but I found this little bird in my yard & thought he deserved the same respect.
