Finally presenting to you my ultra special Breyerfest 2012 raffle model, Carlisle! I call him Must-Dash Man though (Dash for short). Why, you ask? Well, you see, back at Breyerfest when I won him... I bought 25 tickets for the Saturday raffle. However, the time the raffle tickets were being called... I was still signing autographs at my workshop, so there was no way that I could get to the main building in time. So I asked my dear Uncle Geoffrey if he could go and observe the raffle calling, JUST in case...
Little did I know, as I was waiting for him over on the other side of the park,... he turned up carrying a bag, and just said "You Won."... I totally did this: [link]
Anyway, as a joke some people didn't know my Uncle's name so they jut called him Mustache Man.... So in honour of him, I called my very special model a name near enough to being a homophone of Mustache Man, but without making it too obvious
ANYWAY! I was trying out some different focal ranges with my new camera, and I just love this shot of Dash.
[Reason for the title]: He looks like running from that little opening of light between the trees, but not in a fleeing kind of way... It appears he's unafraid to gallop into the future, but his ears are back, so it's almost like he's reminiscing over the past. He's acknowledging that it's there, but isn't afraid to look back anymore, and is moving on. WOW, the power of metaphors.
