Photographer's Note

The seaside town of Whitby on a sunny bank holiday weekend. There were almost as many dogs as people enjoying its delights, especially the fish & chips. Every second shop in Whitby seems to be a fish and chip shop. Holidaymakers were sitting outside enjoying their fish and chips, eating from polystyrene trays. Theirs dogs staring at these trays as if hypnotised. This dog's name is Billy.
I asked if I could take this picture and the lady kindly obliged, although unfortunately she felt I needed some help to stage manage the shot. This happened another time too when I tried to photograph two cavalier king charles spaniels.
Apparently the Magnum photographer Martin Parr plans to travel the length & breadth of Britain photographing people enjoying their meals. Whitby on a bank holiday weekend would be a good place to start.
