Wow! Just WOW!

GreytBlackDog posted this on Facebook from the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards -

The photographer, Rob Van Thienen, said "A greyhound ends first in his race, and although the lure is right in front of him, he’s looks straight into the eyes of the photographer (me) and continues his run. I had to jump for my life taking this picture."

I hope that one day in the not too distant future, this boy is laying on a fluffy pillow in the living room of his forever home.  


  1. INCREDIBLE! Thanks for pointing this out.

  2. I saw this on FB and thought how amazing it was.

  3. Total focus! With no muzzle and racing silk, was this a fun run?

    1. Yes, this was a fun run...with two other dogs. Greetings, Rob

  4. That is an incredible shot, but was it training or something? The dog isn't wearing a muzzle or a racing silk. It doesn't matter, it's still a gorgeous shot!
