Dog that never looks at the camera

He Never Looks at the Camera

His owner said as he passed by:

You are lucky, he never looks at the camera’

The camera looks like a confrontational posture by leaning in their direction and usually I focus the lens at their eyes.

If I try to take a picture from a few feet away, dogs go in a typical avoidance behavior, by turning their head away and/or closing their eyes.

In this case, he’s “kind” of looking at me. In the general direction but still avoiding the direct eye contact.
