Day 330 - Every dog has its day

Today's photograph is in honour of the McMaster Marauders university football team, which last night won the Vanier Cup as national champions.

Like Marlee here, the Marauders have earned themselves some time in the sun, time to kick back, secure in the knowledge that their place in football history has been well established with their big win over heavily-favoured Laval. Marlee wasn't too sure about wearing the McMaster ball cap for this photo but eventually decided just to put up with her dad's strange whims and go to sleep, cap in place.

Not an easy photo to get, to be honest, and not just because the subject was a fidgety hat hater. Lighting was an issue. Marlee is lying in her bed on the landing outside our side door, under the car port, with the sunlight beaming between the slats of the railing. I had to make a number of adjustments to get the light right, including moving the Marauder eagle insignia around on her head to catch the beams of sunlight.
