A young Red Fox kit watches her brother to see what has captured his interest. Young foxes, like puppies, are playful and affectionate.
Dance competitions at modern pow-wows show off a specific intensity and an overall grace. Drumming rattles your bones while chanting lilts up and down the valley. These sensations set the stage for swirling blurs of spark and spirit that is the fancy dance.
I set out to make an image that pays homage to the overall scene instead of an individual competitor. This long-, multiple-exposure blur incorporates many points of interest that force your eyes to bounce and spin from point to point -- just like the fancy dancers.
A fun, multiple-exposure photograph! "Peace" note cards are available here.
Behind the lens.
There are only two people and two dogs in this image. The red coat is me (John), the blue coat is Tracy (my better half), and our dogs are Abbey (the blonde) and Jodie (the redhead). Our neighbor has a deck overlooking the lake, so Tracy stood on the deck and directed me while I practiced my penmanship with a snow shovel on the frozen lake. I think the letters look better than my handwriting.
