Thank you to Kim Klassen for her texture "Unleashed" - could it be named anything more appropriate for this photograph!
I found this dog in June at Woofstock in Toronto. If you don't know what that is, it is a street festival for humans and their dogs. 1,000's of dogs walk the streets shopping, frolick in the water fountains and share ice-cream cones with their owners. Not sure what I am talking about - here is a video I took in 2009!
I have seen about 3 Irish Wolfhounds in my life - all in the last 4 years. There is a good chance I just keep running into the same dog because they are a rare breed. There is one Irish Wolfhound always competing at the Purina Nationals during the Obedience and Rally trials.
During Woofstock many photographers have an outdoor studio set up. I just happened to be walking by and quickly took my shot using my 50mm. I really love the profile so
