Some of you are aware I participate in Viewbug competitions and challenges. This week my portrait of Milo the Boxer dog was chosen for summer selection by staff. This is along with peer awards by other photographers. Thank you to those voting for the picture.
Viewbug is a community that is great mix of pro and amateur photographers. Some of the amateur and hobbyists are producing astounding work.
Photography is a bit competitive. However the real challenge is always about keeping your own eyes on your own story. Being part of a photographic community keeps you ‘thinking’ in photographic terms.
This picture was taken in 2000 on my first visit to New Zealand. Milo was (RIP) an inquisitive, slightly mischievous dog with a propensity for wind. He sat in the back seat of a VW Kombi and farted all the way from Titirangi to Marakopa. There was lots of window winding up and down.
