This week we were tasked with the theme of Street Photography. These were our instructions: Traditionally, this has meant documentary-style candids in public places with wide angle lenses and increased depth-of-field. But interpret this any way you’d like – you could use one of those traditional elements or do something completely different. This idea fit perfectly with an event I was already attending last Saturday, Nashville’s Dog Day Festival, hosted by the Nashville Humane Association at Centennial Park. Dog day is an event I look forward to attending every year. It’s chock full of dog themed businesses, rescues, food, music and dogs. Most years my husband and I volunteer to help at the Weim Rescue booth. We had a great time and look forward to attending again next year!
Dog Day Street Photography
Several of the dogs pictured above are available for adoption. The first Dachshund pictured was there with All American Dachshund Rescue, the Beagle was there with Nashville Humane Association, the hound puppy was there with Love at First Sight and Wilson the Weimaraner is available through Weimaraner Rescue of the South. I also wanted to give a shout out to the adorable Lab mix, Maxwell House, who was at Dog Day with Nashville Humane. I am sad I didn’t get a good photo of him, but you can see his cute face here – Maxwell House . If you are in the Nashville area and looking to add to your family he would certainly make a cute addition.
From here you can check out everyone’s interpretation of street photography starting with the lady who came up with this great theme, Los Angeles Pet Photographer, Sharon Hardy. Enjoy your last weekend of September!
