Tabula Rasa.."Something that exists in its original state and that has yet to be altered by outside forces"
For me each journey or specific shooting adventure begins as a "tabula rasa". Then, when I step back and really look, the fun (magically it seems) appears.
This week I went to the river with a friend of mine. She happens to be a light guide, dog photographer extraordinaire especially at this spot. She has photographed the area for close to 10 years. The light was a little flat and not really what we were hoping to see. However...check this out:
I love it when a moment happens because you just kept shooting. This dog, Sadie, aka "the goddess of frolic", made the moment. No ball, no problem..this stick will do. She altered the tranquility of the river and in doing so look what the universe offered up to be captured!
As for Bambi (the water beagle) in the background...the goddess seems to be saying" If you get in the water your going to get wet!
Leeluu, and her sniff pack were busy looking for that interesting piece of dirt. Not too worried about what the "goddess of frolic" was doing. See you next week!
