52 Week Challenge: week 19

WEEK 19: Portrait: Messy – Take an amazing portrait of someone, make a mess while you are doing it.

This challenge has been eating away at the back of my mind for weeks. Today we were in the front garden, picking up fallen sticks and branches and had let Eddie, our Jack Russell Terrier, out to join us. He went straight to the pile of topsoil that we have left over from building our raised beds in the Spring, dived under the tarpaulin that covers it and disappeared for about 30 minutes. The result was spectacular!

My main camera was in the house so I went to the trunk of my car to get another and found the first one had no memory card in it and the second had flat battery. My daughter quickly retrieved my cell phone and this is the resulting shot, taken in the fading late afternoon Fall light. Yes, it’s not a person, but it’s still a portrait as far as I am concerned and Eddie certainly made a mess for this shot!
