This is Dee Wallace, the mom in ET. And one of my closest friends. I once told her that to my view, no one had yet captured her personality right, and that I wanted to get a picture of her jumping on the bed. She totally went for it. That's Savannah, her rescued dog, watching mom's antics.

Because I didn't really want to participate in the crepe hanging, I'll comment instead. :)

Such a fun picture. Awesome, really.

Gotta love the expression on the dogs face - like a puzzled concern . . " are you sure that's a good idea ? "

:-)

See seems a very different person than in the movie. I guess that means she is a great actor.

Great shot. Love it.

great shot, the dog creates a whole new story. He seems more adult than she :)

You know, I don't think I would have recognized her now. But wow does she look great! This is such a fun and fabulous shot. There's a lot of joyful energy in it. The love is so infectious that even the dog is smiling. So wonderful!

Talk about Feel Good... I'm starting a collection of favourite doggie pictures - I mean pictures favoured by dogs.

It's the dog that makes this an incomparable portrait. This needs to be published somewhere.

She looks like she's having a great time.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Fun and nice lighting. And I like the composition with that little window on the back wall. I don't think the dog adds anything to the image, which would probably be stronger without the distraction.

10/01/2011 01:16:54 PM
The dog thinks she's a little crazy LOL.
