"Good Boy"

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/500 second F/10.0 ISO 200 75 mm


"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."
~ Andre Kertesz

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Fabulous street shot, I like the expressions and the colorful processing

Good boy seems reluctant to photo shootings.

yo from Ile de France, France

Jolie scène et le reflet montre qu'il y a beaucoup plus de monde dans la rue !

Christine from Ellemford, United Kingdom

Great capture, I love the little girl, I think she and the dog are thinking this women is a bit silly.

Christian Richer from Le Havre, France

Oh that's great! A scene that appears so unusual through your lens! Transcendent reality, a hyper-realistic reading of the street! My favorite of the day !

13 Jun 2012 7:19am

@Christian Richer: thanks Christian:)

Perfect timing on this shot - they all seem to have a different purpose in mind but it all adds up to a colourful piece of street theatre!

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

Just let my eye roam around the photo a bit more and noticed the reflections in the windows. Those are great and add so much to scene aside from what's front and center.

gerard1948 from Santiago de Compostela, Spain

A nice street scene, but it does not seem determined to move the "good boy". Excellent.

13 Jun 2012 1:09pm

@gerard1948: that is actually not important ! with this image I want to show how Canadians, these who are dog lovers, are really crazy about their dogs and love them more than anything else .

Willie from Obdam, Netherlands

Sun, warmth and joy radiates from this picture. Summit.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A patient photographer's model. I like how all three subjects have red hair. I guess I should be Canadian since I'm crazy about my dog, too. ;-)

13 Jun 2012 1:42pm

@Steve Rice: now when I know this , I expect to see a picture of your dog, or even better a pic of you taking a pic of your dog :) Promise ?

Joke from Leuven, Belgium

A very warm picture in two senses.

Comme une scène de théâtre un peu tragi-comique! Par les temps qui courent, tout est tenu en laisse!
Le public, nombreux, réduit à la plus élémentaire des réflexions...

Heinz from Hamm, Germany

der Hund hat ja einen interessanten Haarschnitt, und die Stellung von der Hundebesitzerin war schon eine Aufnahme wert. Super Foto.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Looks like Mom was waiting for the opportune moment to photograph the dog and the dog doesn't seem willing to cooperate at this moment. :-) Perhaps persistence will pay off?
