What the heck is a messy portrait?
Portrait: Messy Take an amazing portrait of someone, make a mess while you are doing it.
Well, we make messes all the time, but not generally on purpose. I was at a loss on this one. I checked out the Dogwood Flickr page, and the one Facebook Dogwood group I belong to: people had all different takes on this and some were really well done.
As usual, my favourite subject saved the day. She was posing beautifully; lying gracefully in the grass, looking at me just like the Princess she is. In the moment before I pressed the shutter, she made a mess of it in the most delightful way.

So, there’s my messy portrait. What a joyful creature my pup is.
