El Bob goes to Italy

El Bob traveled with me to Italy the week before Memorial Day weekend for an engagement assignment I booked. We landed in Milan, and made our way to Pisa, Venice, Florence and Rome. His favorite part was playing with the pigeons in San Marco Square in Venice.

Can you guess what this is? (Hint: It’s moving very fast)

    I love that you watch Dog Whisperer…or maybe not?

    I wanna go on trips with El Bob! He looks like he had a lot of fun 🙁

    The dachshund holding onto El Bob’s nose was scary.

    El Bob is some traveler. Has he thought about a career as a travel agent?

    I’m starting to like the El Bob series’ just as much as the shots of your models. =)

    I have a little Domo-kun figure I picked up in Taiwan that I’ve done something similar with on my travels, but seeing you do it makes me wanna get back out there and get even more creative.
