Eastern Market, Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C. February 2015
He is giving you a bit of a look too.. c
Dogs react to street photographers just like people do.
I find this with the barn animals.. i think they see a big eye aimed at them and feel the immediate threat that eye contact brings to an animal. Mine are getting trained to it, but most of the birds see the lens raised to them and they scarper.
I have an entire series of animal shots where they’re looking at me. For some reason, animals are rarely scared of me.
Respect for the Alpha, that’s what it is. 🙂
Ha! That might be it, actually. I purposely project that energy to dogs to keep them from jumping on me.
Yes, I understand that one perfectly well. When I walked across Spain I had a big stick I could point straight at them. There were many along the way, many who weren’t so friendly. The stick worked a treat. However, without a walking stick I try and project my inner Bill when I come across big dogs these days. 🙂
Well, remind me to that you have 2 walking sticks in my trunk. 🙂
Because I’ll never remember to give them to you otherwise. 🙂
No. I meant why do you have two walking sticks in your boot?
They’ve been in there for years, believe it or not. They were a gift from my parents to someone who didn’t deserve them, so I left them in the trunk. I was going to use them on hikes, but never do.
We should next time I’m there. We can feel like serious hikers then… 😉
My parent’s use theirs all the time, even walking in the street. 🙂
How funny. I suppose after my long walks especially it felt odd to be without my walking stick. It’s a very reassuring thing to have when you are covering a lot of mileage.
