This weekend it took me over fifty attempts to get the above photo. Sadie was sitting on the front steps, watching the humans do more yard work. Something about her pose struck me as cute, so I decided I would take a picture of her. I put down my rake for what I thought would be a couple seconds to snap a photo, and didn’t pick it up again for twenty minutes. Sadie was just absolutely refusing to be photographed. She must have tried every avoidance technique she could think of, from running down the stairs to get away to scratching at the door to get back in the house. She stubbornly refused to look at the camera, and when that didn’t stop me from trying to get a good picture, she got more mischievous. Sadie started looking at the camera, and then as soon as she heard the camera focus, she quickly looked away, leaving me with lots of blurry photos. In the end I just had to be more stubborn than Sadie and kept trying until I finally got the perfect photo.
Here are a few of my favorite avoidance photos:
