It's Round Robin time! This week's topic, Two Halves Don't Make a Whole, was suggested by Nancy of Nancy Luvs Pix. The idea is to photograph two similar things, take half of each, and line them up so they almost fit together as one photo. Silly me, I thought this would be fairly easy. Take the shots, resize so they match, and line 'em up! But it wasn't quite that simple....
One idea I had for this was to piece together halves of different Mexican restaurant signs photographed along 22nd St., but the dogs were in the car and I didn't want to mess with it. So I photographed signs at the Safeway Plaza, the same place where I photograph so many sunsets.
None of these composites are strictly speaking half and half; I had to crop and fudge to make them work. I think they're close enough.
This one is my favorite of the signs.
But the main thing I wanted to do tonight was composite the dogs, and that was much harder than the signs. Getting two dogs to hold exactly the same pose isn't easy!
Even going through photo archives, it was hard to match up angles and backgrounds and sizes.
One cool thing I could do, though, was push two couches together...
...add an extra dog to the bed...
...or even let Cayenne ride with Jenny in the back of our van in 1986!
I suppose that's not exactly the concept, but it sure was fun!
Now go see how everyone else did with this especially challenging Challenge. (And yes, you're invited to play along yourself!)
