Pet Rock Fun

I like to participate in photography challenges, as well as drawing challenges.  I did once attempt a writing challenge, but that’s sort of a long, ongoing thing.  Anywho, the point is photography challenges.  In particular one that I was creating with a friend of mine.

Our March theme last year was Pet Rock, so you were to create your very own pet rock and use the prompts to photograph him… or her, in various wacky scenarios.  It was the most fun I’ve had with a photography challenge.  I felt that it was very creative, which is why I’ve decided to make a post about it.

Iggy

So, I chose a triangular shaped rock and named him Igneous or Iggy for short.  Get it?  Though I’m unsure if he’s actually an igneous rock, but I liked it, so that’s his name.

Watching his favourite film.

 

plays-a-game
Playing a game (rock, paper, scissors anyone?).  That Paper is a shifty so-and-so.

We enjoyed a lovely spring-time picnic.  However, the new rock friend he was meeting was kind of shifty.  We didn’t stay long.

He finally decided on his Halloween costume.  Wonder Woman!

 

gets-artistic
Iggy did a pretty fab self-portrait.  Made his mummy so proud!

That time that Iggy had a really hard day.

 

takes-a-bath
But bath time playing pretend Pirates of the Caribbean and he was right as rain again.

 

reads-a-book
Caught him up, way past his bedtime, reading his favourite book… The Lord of the Rings.

 

runs-into-old-nemesis
Oh… that day he ran into his old nemesis, Paper.

Enjoying a glorious spring-time sunset.
goes-shopping
Window shopping the newest nail polish colours.  He really wanted the Tuck It In My Tux red.
hangs-with-a-rough-crowd
That time he got mixed up with a rough crowd.  They weren’t bad people per say , they just wanted to use Iggy as their new home.
misbehaves
Caught him making a mess in my sewing things.
does-chores
So as punishment, I made him help me fold the towels.  He was quite good at it actually, and thought all of the colours were so pretty!
goes-skydiving
Having fun skydiving.
saves-an-animal
His pet, Baby Hippo, got into a spot of bother, but Iggy went out on the ledge to save her, so all is well.
plays-a-sport
That time he won the Polo championship.  It was a great day!
goes-on-a-date
His first date.  He took the super foxy Swedish Christmas Goat to the discoteque.  
meets-a-celebrity
Iggy has a ginormous crush on Legolas.  I suppose he must have been day dreaming about him, but somehow he used his teleportation powers and a really pretty, rather upset Elf started appearing in our backyard.  Let me tell you, that was a time getting him back into his book!

 

learns
Russian language studies.  
goes-to-the-beach
Our trip to the beach ended with Iggy becoming quite good at surfing.

 

gets-some-culutre
Our mini holiday to Egypt, where Iggy saw a very pretty girl in the Bazaar.

We went to the Opera for his birthday.  He’s such a big fan.
visits-a-friend
Iggy’s friend Baby Beaver had a bit of a meltdown and had to go to the spa.  My cat’s medical opinion was that Baby Beaver would be just fine, she just needed a nice moss wrap.
attends-rock-concert
With Iggy’s teleportation powers, he could zoom us back to 1979 for a rock concert; Van Halen’s first world tour.  It was fantastic!
hosts-a-tea-party
To celebrate the end of a very long month, Iggy hosted a lovely high tea with his friends Mini Buffalo and Little Fox.
