Item Description

Photography

13" x 15" x 1"

"Stray Dog" is a photograph that always brings a smile to the artist's face. It was taken during a photo shoot in Santorini, Greece. Linda would get up very early in the morning to walk the streets of the village Oia to photograph before it was full of people. There were mini groups of stray dogs all over the island. Every morning a small group of them would follow her as she walked about discovering the beautiful nooks and crannies to photograph. When Linda would stop to take a picture, they would lay down and watch or stop walking and observe her actions.  When she finished, and walked onward, they followed again.  It was so amazing to her that they were so curious. This photo is one of the dogs waiting for the artist to finish photographing. She felt the dog knew he was posing for her. This is his portrait!
