Fort Morgan, CO. 02/06/14. The Morgan County Shutterbug Photography Club recently presented a framed photograph to Morgan Community College (MCC) for their permanent collection. The portrait, titled "Vigilant," was taken by Sue Hodgson.
“I took the photograph on the north shore of Ireland one cold overcast day where a local farmer had established a display of authentic cabins where families huddled during the terrible potato famine,” says Hodgson. “The Border Collie sat on a large rock on the pathway up the hillside to the somber setting. Friendly and very obedient to his master selling the tickets nearby, he welcomed everyone with the dignity such a display deserved. I was delighted to have had my point and shoot in hand to capture him.”
Hodgson credits her successful photography career to having her camera constantly with her, as well as having been fortunate to be invited to areas many never have an opportunity to see. Her work has been featured in magazines and newspapers nation-wide, and her work has been recognized by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
