Street Photography 7: Doggy Walk

Living at the edge of the village has its advantages. Our street borders a stream (“Vlei” in Afrikaans) with an abundance of winged wildlife. Every morning I let the dog out and we are greeted by ducks, seagulls (the ocean is only a few kilometers in bird flight) and other birds I don’t know the name of. People jogging or on their way to work, etc. Rain or shine; it’s always wonderful and there are always ‘subjects’ to photograph. This serie of 10 begins with a duck in full flight and ends with our border along the wooden fence.

  1. Good work. But dont you think its kind of over saturated. If that is what is the output that you were looking for, then its fine. Else i think this good picture can be worked a little better. No offence, I’m just telling you what I feel from this image. Cheers!!!


  2. Thanks for your comment Naresh. Think that virtually all pictures can be worked out better (striving towards perfectionism) and maybe in a month time or so I will look with different eyes to this image. For now I keep it this way. The picture is part of a serie about life in the street we live in. Just tried to add a hint of ‘impressionism’ ….
