I've had this picture in mind since the challenge came up.

Actually the main idea was a bit different: Thomas (the dog) should have had sunglasses on and the original title should have been "Bitch, I'm Fabulous!" (like the MeMe).

But Thomas is the "dogification" of Anarchy.

A bit of background: you should know that it takes up to three people to make Thomas do what a "normal" dog would do with a simple voice command ("STAY!"); one should hold a piece of bread where you want him to look, one should look after the outfit, constantly shook by his random movements, and one should keep him from standing up and leaving, at some point.

So try to picture me shooting this while doing a three people's job all by myself; I set the background and light, put the big guy there and forced him to sit, put the wig on his big, white head and holding the piece of bread up the lens, while shooting with the other hand (5D mkIII with 85mm f/1.2, not exactly a lightweight equipment).

So, as I said... not exactly matching my original idea but still good enough to enter the challenge.

Here is a bit of outtakes



p.s. he ate the bread at the end, of course.
p.p.s. as you can see, in the picture I've entered he's NOT looking in camera. That's exacty what I meant with "random movements".
