With today being the Spring Equinox, my mind has been taken back 4 years to a image that I made of my beautiful little girl Ruby, who always loved to be the centre of attention after suffering years of neglect as a Puppy farm breeding bitch before we rescued her and, I hope, made her final years a little happier.
I had been out trying to photograph Snowdrops, and as usual, Ruby would never be far from my side. I had found a nice batch of flowers and had framed up a shot using my 70-300 lens at 300mm to blur out the background and just focus on a couple of stems, when I was aware that something had blocked my view. She knew just where to sit to make sure she was framed perfectly in the shot when I pulled back the zoom.
Still miss you Ruby, but I know that you are still close by because I am sure that it is you that is putting Oliver up to the little tricks he is pulling.
