Bird Dogs

Bird Dogs

2010. Exact date unknown. Bird Dogs. Near Clermont, Florida, on the west side of Orlando.

On the same hunting trip/photo walk mentioned in yesterday's post, I took this picture of a hunter recovering a downed quail from his German Shorthaired Pointer.

This shot was a key moment in learning photography for me. Something about how the action of the dogs extended off of the frame (this photo scan is uncropped) helped me to appreciate the power of an incomplete picture. I also love how it captured the loving relationship between dog and master.

Pentax ZX-7 35mm Kodak Gold film, ISO 200, unknown settings. Print scanned using a Kodak Photo Scanner model s1220. Scanned photo had mild processing done in LR 2.
