Spiritual author Eckhart Tolle believes that dogs serve a role in creating a humane society, I believe that too. A friend noticed that I most always have a picture of a dog in my photo shoots, I didn’t realize I was doing this until it was pointed out to me. I think the reason I do this is that it keeps me sane in an insane world which I constantly photograph to explore.
This photo was taken on boat tour in Sanibel Island, Florida. The main reason I was there was to photograph birds in Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge which I did real poorly at, but I was not alone at making fuzzy bird pics, what made me feel good about it, was the there were several pros on the tour and they didn’t do much better. My dog shot was my best.
To tell you the truth, I feel like my spiritual practice is my photography. Creating photography is sort of a meditation.
Dogs Rule !
