First chapter,  first paragraph:
My Tale of the Booth 
One would surmise, by viewing my other photography or visiting my home, that I have an interest in history and pretty much anything dating from before 1950; I live in a 104-year-old home. I collect antiques, I enjoy shooting pinup-style photography and have an entire wardrobe and props from that era. Old photographs of all my earliest ancestors are framed on my walls, among a collection of antique photos of dogs and humans together, peppered with a collection of anthropomorphic animal art. 
In 2005, inspired by my obsession with vintage photos, I began a photo booth series of dogs for a local pit bull rescue group....
Would you open this book of almost 128 pages of pictures of dogs in a picture booth?
