“The Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon, is a must-see event annually. I thought taking Wallace, one of my pugs, to frolic in the flowers would be fun for us both. All I had to do was yell, “Wally! Wally! Wally!” and he would run toward me. I chose my 50 mm because it’s so fast.” —Jenna Van Valen, Portland, OR

Shot with a Nikon D300 and an AF Nikkor 50 mm f/1.4D lens.
