It ‘s funny how many feature pictures I have come across just driving down my block on 22nd Ave. in Spokane, Wash. I just had to stop when I saw my neighbor Theresa Burgess raking out the undercoat of her dog Chester in the middle of her front lawn Sunday. I first started taking photos of the scene with a wide-angle lens, but switched to my 300mm telephoto to see what a compressed, soft background would look like. What sold me on this frame is the fur on Theresa’s legs and her body language.
