This week's blog post will showcase dogs in doorways. No, not dogs barking at the doorway or trying to escape out the doorway or jump on your guests at the doorway (ps. my dogs would never do that :) Nope, these doorway photos are of dogs sitting quietly and cutely in front of doorways. Doorways provide a natural frame for your photo and in some cases a really beautiful compositional element.
The photos I have today are not new. The first few were taken at Barkelona over two years ago now. The photos were in an old gorgeous Spanish Villa or in the beautiful town not far away called Sitges. The models were provided by a local trainer who put the word out to some of her customers that we needed some cute pups and they delivered.
This next photo was taken in Quito, Ecuador. Quito is a very poor city and there are numerous street dogs. This poor boy made his home in this tourist area where he can get scraps of food. It was difficult to see them in this situation. They were all very gentle but in need of medical attention and some regular meals. Needless to say he got all the food that I and my traveling companion had with us. "You can do something big, you can do something small, but doing something is better than nothing at all"- unknown Someday I'd like to return to this place in a different capacity to see what I can do to help. This image was voted top 10 in the Hair of the Dog Blog Monthly Photo contest for the theme of; you guessed it: Doorways.
