Dogs and Dog Tags
When I'm looking at a portrait, I almost always want to see eyes and a face, so I try to make portraits that way. But when I was talking to this man in Coffey Park, and photographing him and his dogs, an interesting switch happened. He was facing me, but turned his head away, and his dog that was facing away turned her head back towards the camera, asserting herself as the main subject of the portrait.
I think he said that she was the mother of one or maybe both of the other snarling dogs- who I guess couldn't care less about being photographed.
