Dog of Mystery

Two in a row? She's on a roll!

They say if you do something 21 days in a row you'll form a habit, so two down and 19 to go.

You know the type... the quiet ones, down at the end of the bar. The ones that look like they are there for a reason, and it isn't a good one.

Our Daily Challenge - Jan 2, 2020: "The Roaring 20's"

I was thinking Gangster... maybe Speakeasy... but ultimately lacked the props to pull it off on short notice.

This is the usual black Fedora decorated with some white bias tape, as I couldn't figure out how to make satin ribbon lay flat (tips? anyone?)

The Bottle is real (originally held ginger ale) but the Old Fashioned "Glass" is plastic (safer).

I also shot a version just like it plus a white Boa - perhaps our Gangster was drinking over a woman? But it looked cluttered, and being white was too bright to fit with "Dark" (below).

As for Toby, we practiced "Hats" several times today and by the time of his shoot he accepted the hat without complaint.

Alas, he's very stiff, lays awkwardly and is hard to reposition as he pops up every time I try to adjust anything.

I think we need to have some Posing Practice along with Hat Practice!

He's smart - he'll eventually figure out that popping up only delays getting to the GOOD cookies at the end.
