Sir Edward, the Lucky Pig

Some weeks ago I met Eddie and his owner for taking portrait photos. I like the idea of portraying animals, who are loved and taken good care of. Eddie turns out a very lovely and handsome creature, however quite determined when seeing any food and immovable when he prefers to take a nap in the sun. It was a joy watching him roll between leaves and finally trotting home – on his own. Eddie is a Bergsträßer Zwerg (a German breed of minipigs), six years old and currently has a little overweight, which however is probably not unusual before the winter. He is used to taking walks in the park, loves to eat turkish hazel, peanuts, apples and cherries amongst others. Above are a few snapshots from our photoshoot.

This year we have rain, rain and… rain. Which makes it of course easier to move along, but still some snow would have been nice. So my friend drove us to Altenberg (Erzgebirge) and finally we could enjoy a little winter wonderland, tobogganing, snowball fighting and got a nice view from the Kahleberg.  Continue reading
