In March of 2007, I brought home Sophie...an 8 week old Border Collie. During my time with her I have learned, and continue to learn, a great deal about dogs, about life and about myself.
My blog, Finding Sirius, is about life with Sophie, our adventures and my thoughts on the world around me. Finding Sirius incorporates my love of writing, of photography and of dogs.
One of my favorite's of Sophie...taken on the beach during a camping trip at Pinery this past summer. It may not be a great photo, but it is a perfect picture of Sophie....unkempt fur brushed with sand and water from Lake Huron; gazing peacefully, calmly towards the shoreline; taking deep breaths of fresh summer air with a sated, content border collie soul.
As I am learning more about photography, about composition and techniques, I am flipping through past pictures that I have taken, in order to critique myself and grow. However, in looking back at the photos, I am realizing that the ones that I saw first with my heart, and then with my eyes...like this one of Sophie...are still more often than not my favorites.
