THROUGH MY LENS: Making sheep’s eyes

Bits of hay and thick, curly wool can’t hide this lady’s demure expression

Sheep are very photogenic animals, even if they are not always keen on holding a pose for long. They are a very textural subject, great for black and white images that can communicate their softness and richness so well. I was lucky to meet many this past weekend at the local fiber festival, and capture a few great images to remember them by.

 

About Jacqlyn Thorne

I've never really liked labels: I am this, I am that... But in the interest of introducing myself to the world, I can say that I am many things: nurse, writer, photographer, poet, painter, gardener, friend, armchair philosopher, counselor, nature lover, real-estate aficionado, movie buff, sometime yogi, and aspiring world-traveler. I think that's a pretty good list... for now. I want to become a bigger part of the vital, creative force I feel deeply at work in the world and connect with other people who want to do the same.
