I know there are readers of this site who enjoy dog photos, so I am also posting a second photo to show a closer view the dog. The dog will also make an appearance in tomorrow's photo, with a very different background.
I take photos such as these for my mother-in-law, who is a fanatical, obsessive dog lover. When I travel, I try to take some photos of dogs for her, usually with a close up of the dog and a second shot that shows the dog in its environment so that it can be identified as being in a particular country. My mother-in-law has several photo albums on her coffee table of dogs around the world.
I began taking dog photos for her when she joined my wife and me for 10 days in the middle of our 3-week honeymoon in France. (I know, that is strange.) I started noticing that no matter where we were, my mother-in-law would not be taking photos of the major sights, but would be taking photos of dogs. She is probably the only tourist who neglected to take a photo of the Eiffel tower and barely looked at it because there were dogs to be photographed in the area. It was painful to watch her take photos of dogs at long distances, without a telephoto, that I had to take up the challenge to take some good dog photos for her.
