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.

  3. Labradoodles are the ultimate family companion. They adore the attention and company of children and they love to join in and play games.

  4. These tags are usually use by police for the special dogs.
    Is this true that plastic key tags are able for the identification and other information?
