We’re back with our stories. Read them below. As always, we’d like to hear what this photo evokes for you. Tell us what you think in a word, sentence, paragraph, etc. Write an essay, if you like. We truly want to hear from you.
Susan says: “This is my dog. My comments are completely biased because this photo is my way into the essence of this little gal. She isn’t just a cute dog. I know her smell, her feel, her sound. Like anything that is close to you, she brings up more for me than she’d ever do for you. There isn’t much of a lesson here, except that it is good to remember that you are closer to your ideas, your business, your service than anyone else. To see what others see isn’t always easy. And to see how you can be helpful to others is even more difficult. I am always amazed when someone walks right by my dog without a sigh, a smile or a word. But they don’t see her the way I do.”
Lucia says: “Well, I know Susan’s dog, too. And she’s right. Her dog is a cute, sweet pup. I agree with Susan about how close we are to something influences how we see it. I took this photo, so I’m going to approach it from a photographic point of view. Of course, the cuteness factor is very high. But let’s go beyond that. First of all, I didn’t doctor this to make it sepia. The scene was really monochromatic. Next, the dog was on the move. Capturing a dog in motion is no easy task. Timing is everything. Also, it’s important to make sure the eyes are in focus when photographing a person or an animal. Here, the little dog’s eyes are in focus. Plus, she’s sharp from the tip of her nose to her fluffy tail. At this instant, the timing was perfect.”
