Billie lives most of her life in a Blur. She is a scruffy terrier who was found as a stray, wandering the byways of a rural county with her sister. She was pregnant, and ended up having her six adorable puppies at a local shelter. She is definitely a member of the Lurcher family of dogs. She plays hard. Our Border Collie, Piper, is extremely happy she came to live with us because he definitely needed a "player" in his life.
I kid you not when I tell you that even when she is sitting still, she isn't sitting still. Once in a while, if I am very quiet, and very patient, I can snap a very very good photo of her. These times are few and far between. My thoughts have always been to one day have a contest for all of my photography friends, with Billie as their subject, and challenge them to get a fully in-focus photo that did not make her eyes seem like she was wearing a Zorro mask.
So, my plan (or story board, if you remember last week), was: Me, Camera, 135mm manual focus lens, Billie, the yard, and a sure fire recipe for Blur. What I got was this.
Susannah Maynard of Suzi Pix Photography in Cincinnati also worked on Blur this week. To see her results, click here.
