We here at Denverite like a good portrait series. Every now and then we pull out the old black curtain and set up somewhere to take poignant shots of humans in a specific place. It’s a way to level the visual playing field. The consistent background puts everyone in the same contextless context and lets their personalities fill the frame. This is one of those posts – just with less emphasis on humans.

These are all the dogs we met at City Park Jazz last Sunday before intermission. An unexpected technical difficulty made it hard to keep going all night: the more dogs that sat on the curtain, the more smells it accumulated. It became too large a distraction as more models came for their close-ups.
