I’m always on the lookout for a different angle for an image. Whilst street photography is my thing, I usually carry a camera when I’m out with the dog. The great, long, soft tree shadows at Stanmer Park were too good to pass by. My shadow, by necessity, had to be in the image to get this effect with a wide angle lens, the tricky bit was getting the dog to stay still enough in the right part of the image for the composition. Mission accomplished by swinging this dummy (toy that he fetches) around in circles when he hit the right spot. He was mesmerised – sorted.
