Photo Contest Winner: Mariah Delich's Adorable Puppy

Mariah Delich captures a charming photo of Marvin.
This photo nabbed second place in the pets category in our Focus on Woodbury photo contest.

Marvin is a three-year-old Chihuahua/small poodle mix, and most of the time he never sits still. “I like to take pictures of him and sometimes he will stay still for me,” says his owner, Mariah Delich.

Delich, a student at Minneapolis Community and Technical College who is studying photography, took this photo with her Nikon D7000. She says, “I enjoy shooting in black and white because then you can focus more on the subject than the color. Sometimes the color can be distracting to a photo.”
