The year is 2009 and I had just moved from California to Ohio. It was my first real winter in a lot of years and I remember thinking about whether or not I could handle good old ugly midwest winters. I never thought about how Molly the Wonder Dog would do.
The bottom line was she loved it. It was better than chasing tennis balls in the sand at the beach and in the moment I got the shot above, I swear I could hear her laughing. The snow would stick to her fur and at sixty pounds, she'd pick up another five just in the snow stuck to her paws and face.
So, while Molly loved it, Sheila and I gave it up in 2011. Moving to Sarasota and having sunshine almost every day all year long has had a dramatic impact on our life style and especially the number of times we smile each day.
As always, there's a message on Throwback Thursday. Take a few minutes today and find a few older images. Think about the memories each image brings back and then remember the incredible trust every client has in your work and the responsibility you have to capture their memories.
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
