Writing with Light

Life in the City

Last weekend I attended a photo walk, with my photography club,  in Kensington Market. While waiting for everyone to arrive I made a new friend. I wish I knew his real name but I call him Uggie. Uggie was waiting for his owner to come out of a coffee shop and he was so darn cute I decided he’d make a good photographic subject.  I took a couple of shots from a crouching position and wasn’t happy with the perspective. I knew I needed to get as low as I could to get the POV I was looking for. Lying flat on m stomach wasn’t an option because that would mean my legs would be out in the middle of the road so I placed the camera flat on the sidewalk and took the shot.

    This shot proves the rule that you should always take pictures of animals at their eye level. Nice one, Edith.

  12. Nice shot of a cute (and obviously patient) dog. The low perspective really makes the photograph very dynamic and the dog very close. Great shot!

  16. Great POV Edith. I spent part of the afternoon lying flat on the ground (In my garden) photographing Primulas . That looks like a Jack Russell (might be called something different in Canada).

    • Thanks Andy. He is a Jack Russell. He was so cute. Don’t you love getting into weird positions to get that perfect angle 🙂
