Recently I met Susie of Susie’s Hope at a fundraiser at Franklin Street Yoga. Surviving abuse as a puppy, today Susie is training to volunteer as a therapy dog for burn victims like herself. Her day-job is traveling to schools in North Carolina to educate students about animal safety and animal abuse. She’s currently fundraising for a movie about her life which is rumored to cast animal-lover Katherine Heigl as her late owner.
There were several professional photographers present to document her visit. One had a camera the size of my torso. He told me that if I’m not shooting on film or an iPhone, it’s not worth it. This made me shy to use my dads DSLR, so I resorted to stealthy-camera-on-the-floor-“Oh, I’m not taking any pictures”- shots.
