Dog Day Afternoon

Uploaded: November 30, 2009 18:44:41


This dog was wandering the streets of the village of Mata Ortiz in Chihuahua, Mexico and decided to rest in the afternoon sun, but he still kept an eye on me when the camera came out.

I like the composition here very much, Richard, and the detail on the dog is excellent. I love that his head is up and the attentive expression his perked up ears and eye give him. The umbrella shadow and Coca-Cola wall provide an interesting background but but it's still the dog who stars. Nice job :) #1212607
