Orson is a Big Shot!

I recently got a super-rad Polaroid Big Shot camera, the kind of giant portrait camera that Andy Warhol made famous with his searingly revealing photos of famous faces, and I absolutely love it! I've only taken five photos so far, but I want to share one in particular that I think it pretty fun. :)

Orson, on a Snow Day, February 2010
Camera: Polaroid Big Shot
Film: Polaroid UV/ID (expired)

This is my little dog, Orson, wrapped up in loads of blankets on a day when we got a foot of snow! One of the things I love about this photo, aside from the fact that is it of a portrait of "my little boyfriend," is that it reminds of me this portrait of the Tudor King Henry VII:

As my friend Jake mentioned, it even has the correct claws/paws motif! LOL Yes, I did just compare my dog to a Tudor King!

I can't wait to share more photos from this fun camera! Until then, have a great week ahead!

I completely agree. If you look carefully you will see that both have the same look in the eyes.
Orson is so cute! Thanks for sharing =)

I just love the results so far with the big shot - can't wait to see more! Orson is just adorable! Jake totally hit the nail on the head with the likeness of the King!
