Photography: Liberty Humane Society Picture Story

For some weekend fun, I wanted to share my final project for photography class. We had to tell a picture story. I chose to do my project on Liberty Humane Society in Jersey City, NJ. Animal welfare is a cause close to my heart, and I have had rescue cats since I was in second grade.

I used to volunteer at LHS, but stopped going because it made me so sad to see all those animals in need of good homes. LHS is not the cheeriest place, but the staff and volunteers do everything possible on behalf of the animals.

It took a long time, and it was hard for me to share this. I don’t know why. The pics are OK, although my photography has evolved since March, when these were taken. And I have since been introduced to Adobe Lightroom digital photography software. (Lightroom, BTW, is the greatest invention since lip liner.)

Maybe I was reluctant to post this because I adopted two female cats, Mesa and Pashmina, from LHS, and I am still grieving Pashmina’s death last August. Or maybe it’s that I feel strongly about rescue, and wanted to do the story justice.

But anyway, here it is. I had so much fun putting it together. Enjoy!

LHS is located in Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ.

LHS exists in what was once a municipal garage.

Volunteers are so important. A walk in the sun can make a shelter dog’s day.

The cattery is up a flight of stairs in what must have been the garage office.

Appropriate tortitude!

The kennel in located in the former garage motor pool.

Seriously?! Are you going to say no to that face?

Many animals = tons of laundry

Adoptions = Happy Tails

This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Check out the Q1 highlights here.
