So I’m dogsitting a teeny 7 pound mini-poodle named Zeus for the next 2 weeks and we go out for a quick walk so little Zeusy can do his business. It’s snowing pretty hard but little Zeusy keeps trudging forward looking for interesting scents to track when all of a sudden I notice a path made by huge tractor tires. The lines go from foreground to midground and Zeus is pulling me in them. Immediately I think of the Grinch’s dog Max and I start laughing. I pull out the Canon G11 and call Zeus’s name and he looks back at me. I take a few shots and then I tell him to ‘Mush!’ as I continue laughing to myself.
What drew me to this image was the humourous aspect and the lines. I noticed the leash’s line entering the frame while I composed the image and that made the ‘scene’ even funnier suggesting that I was on a sled being pulled by this little dog. I guess my point on this one is be on the lookout for lines, they really help tell visual stories!‚ I cropped this image squarish because it suited the scene better and I likely would have taken more time with the scene if L’il Zeusy and I were warmer.
