Some times what’s not in focus speaks louder than what is.
Nolan and his friend asked me to take a photo of their animal creations (a dog/fish/bird and what Nolie called “all-animal-bility”), and so I did. What I love about this photo lies beyond the toys. The blur of happiness on their faces comes from that singular delight of finding a comrade. Finding a new friend who loves some of the same things as you: pretending to be a puppy, just running for the sake of running, eating sandwiches made out of painted wood, and lending/borrowing toys. (I swear they enjoying lending even more than borrowing.)
