Derby, Western Australia.

Banjo really did a great job here. He rarely stays still enough to take his photo, but he’s such a handsome dog! (Okay, I’m a little bit biased…)

    an absolute classic shot (reminds me of Dorothea Lange’s work: do you know this remarkable American photographer — if not, worth checking out)

  • Thanks, Harry!! I don’t know Dorothea Lange’s work as a body of work but her Migrant Mother photograph is very well known and I love that one… Thanks for the huge compliment, Harry. Very nice to think that my work prompts any kind of comparison with such a well-respected artist!!!
