Funny Friends – Animals doing funny and cute things
The “Funny Friends” collection features photo prints of domestic and wild creatures engaged in normal behaviors that are funny and sweet, and are especially fun for children. The photos have a “paintography” technique applied to them that make them look like water colors. All of the activities are real. Framed and matted prints of this photos will be displayed at the Clinton Book Shop in Clinton, NJ, starting in April 2012. The framed prints are available for sale through the Clinton Book Shop. Prints only may be purchased via my online photo store at: http://www.shutterfly.com/pro/annefreemanimages/AnneFreemanImagesPhotoStore
