This is the dog who my wife Caroline and I look after three days a week. If only editors would react to my photographs the way the dog's owner did when I gave her a print for her birthday: she burst into tears. It was a slow shutter speed, maybe a 30th second, panning with the animal to give the background blur, and some good luck with Lizzie's graceful position at the moment she past me.


  1. I love how solid, steady and fixed with attention she is, as the world spins around her.

  2. Dmitri,
    You captured the position of her legs and her tail and the expression on her face perfectly.
    One of the most touching gifts I've ever received.
    That's my girl!
