Greeks thought dogs could foresee evil !


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

This photo is full of anxiety: what will it happen at 7:05?

I'm convinced dogs can foresee evil in some cases. The only problem is their version of evil is often different than ours.

Wonderfully captured Mariana! The mood would do justice to a Hitchcock production. Bravo! ;-)

Wow! This is an amazing capture! The tension and fear rises inside, and one almost wants to turn away for fear what will happen next.
Bravo! Bravo!

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Wonderful photo. The processing is powerful.

This one dog is definitely foreseeing something. He's planted firmly and aggressively in a direction that suggests he knows where the evil is coming from. If only the rest of us were that gifted.

Good choice of PP this image... it adds a little edge to it. I too believe dogs can tell good from evil. Just ask the nasty man that lives next door ;-)
