There are no dogs here any more

The trailer with the dog’s face on it has been parked in this field for years. For a while there would be canine “gymkhana” type events that would take place here from time to time, where people would run their dogs through courses of fences, ramps, tunnels and the like. I never visited any of these events, but I drove past on a few occasions when they were taking place and there was often quite a crowd of people in attendance. However, at some point a few years ago the events came to an end, but the trailer, with its jolly artwork, has remained in the field since. At some point more recently, someone has broken into the trailer and there were various pieces of equipment scattered beside it.

Phone-box portrait

Another set of photos from the wonderfully misty day a few weeks back. A fairly mundane subject but the light and atmospherics work wonders I reckon.

A pastoral scene

Today I present two views of the same scent. One in portrait orientation, the other landscape. I’m not sure which I prefer – the portrait shot has better composition, I think, while the landscape orientation possibly has more atmosphere thanks to the birds in flight (and in the trees), but at the expense of the foreground fence being less well positioned. Anyway, here are both of them.
