Street Photography wsp6 (2018 / 2019) - 3Michael Ernest Sweet
This photograph might, at first blush, be seen almost as a painting. The way the stairs and building are painted lend itself to tricking the eye of the viewer. The blurred lines and lack of definition in the backdrop allow the two dogs to stand out in a much greater way than they might against a more defined or busier background. I like that the dogs are alert and “involved” in the making of the photograph but, at the same time, are not actively looking at the photographer or her camera. This simple pose, one that is notably difficult to achieve with animals, adds tremendous strength to the photograph. The two dogs being “twins” of sorts really adds visual interest to the image. The dogs are well placed within the frame too! Good job photographer, you’ve got eyes!
