The Poser

The Poser

From a distance I noticed this Jack Russel Terrier playing with a pine cone while balancing on the green bench, and I figured that would be a fun portrait, especially as the bench was surrounded by snow. The poser is called Vincent, and his proud owner goes by the name of Ulrika. She works at a book store here in Handen, where they sell student course books. We talked a bit about books and while I still read my novels, Ulrika mostly listens to them while driving. I mentioned a few previous portraits with cool coincidence's and while doing that The Dude passed by on his bike just to prove my point that it really is a small world after all.

Sometimes I'm surprised when only one other person you've interviewed enters the scene. Someday you're going to have to have a full blown reunion.

Vincent would completely disappear if he jumped into that snow!

très beau portrait, on dirait une sculpture ;)

I'm glad Vincent didn't jump off the bench and chase The Dude.

He did jump into the snow, and he did almost disappear. Not a bad idea Don and Krise, perhaps I should start inviting people, perhaps to the next Haninge Day.

Cute shot. Good grief Steffe, you STILL have snow in Sweden. I'm beginning to think that this will be a permanent feature, he he. Something to do with global warming, I think.

Hi Steffe,

Many thanks for visiting TORUŃ DAILY PHOTO and for your comment about the stupid film crew member! Love your photo...but am surprised you still have snow! Is there still no sign of spring where you are?

Greetings from Poland!

Nice snowdog! Did you see an polar bears, too?

I think dogs are one of the most difficult subject. Not in this case, maybe barely... A very good portrait on a great looking bench!

JM said...

Yes, the Terrier really looks like a poser! :-)
