May Dachshund Races
These days I mostly photograph wildlife and always look for some action in the shot. That's not to say I don't photograph sitting birds or mammals because I do that, but I still try to look for something that might create interest, putting the emphasis on something about the creature and what it is doing perhaps or even the color of the animal. I still photograph a lot of other nature shots and a lot of spring wildflower shots and love doing that, too. But, action does seem to be my "first love" to photograph.
On May 1 I took a new camera, to figure out how to use it, that had recently been delivered to an event called a dachshund race to see if I could get some action shots of the little guys running the race and crossing the line. The races were really fun to watch as the dogs had not read the rules nor did they obey a lot of what their "dog parents" said! Chaos pretty much ensued throughout the several races that took place but it was all for fun and it looked like the crowd and the dogs had a good time.
I am a photographer, it is my passion, my avocation, and almost everything I do revolves around it.
