Here’s my usual way of working:
- I usually spot people with dogs about 50 meters to 100 meters away, around 50 to 100 yards away.
- I make sure that my dog is on my left and the leash is around my wrist. I get my position, background…
- I kneel on the ground with my right knee when the dog is about between 5 to 10 meters away, around 15 to 30 feet away.
- The camera to my right eye. As they get closer, I start making my photos.
I always thanks the people, even if they don’t stop. Often, I will pet the dog and talk to the owner as I pet the dog. When I asked for his name she said: ‘River’, then ‘Do you want to know why?’ How could I resist? ‘It’s because he pees a river.’
He’s like my dog, he pees only once or twice a day, and one pee. That’s it. That’s the type of pee that kills the grass or any other plant.
This dog’s name is River
