One of the joys of being a photographer is being able to take a small fraction of time and look at that moment in a different way. When we see our dogs running or shaking off after a dip in some muddy pond, we see the action, or perhaps we're trying to avoid the fallout, but we miss the detail. Things can look very different when we freeze the action.
Dogs have such beautiful faces. They may be covered in fur, but they certainly don't lack expression. Focused on their person or a ball the concentration is absolute. Asleep or just nodding off they're different again. Who doesn't sit for ages just watching their dog. They have a way to captivate us, even when their asleep.
It's all about that very special bond. Whether you're nine or ninety a dog has the ability to come into your life and steal your heart. I know from experience because Dandy has totally changed my world. I'm privileged to have the opportunity to see it in others and capture it. Dogs are the perfect antidote to a busy world.
