Photographer's Note

I’ve been away from home the last couple of weeks ‘dog-sitting’ for some friends, and with those furry little pups occupying so much of my brain lately, I thought it would be fun to put together a trio of pictures featuring mans best friend.

Still hanging around the Marché aux Fleurs, I came across this ‘ol hound dog. Now you may think I was trying something a lot more risqué with this point of view, but rest assured, I was only attempting to get down to the dogs eye level. Since taking the time to lie down on the pavement wasn’t really an option for a candid shot…not to mention the social protocol that probably would have raised more than a few eyebrows and garnered a lot of unwanted attention…I had to go with the next best option and kneel down while holding the camera even lower, pointed at a blind upwards angle, and hope for the best.

That being the case, I unfortunately came up a bit short along the bottom of the frame and cut the poor little guys front paws out of the picture. I think you get the main idea though, detail aside. Even though the Beagle was my main point of focus, I really liked the combination of this ladys dress with the blue polka dots and the red striped awning overhead…kind of a fun little mix-and-match of pattern.

Thanks for stopping by. Woof!
