Dogs on the beach – a personal obsession

I have a bit of an obsession when shooting pictures for fun. Dogs on the beach have featured in my personal work for many years and when I was out for a stroll the other day I shot this on my Fujifilm X20.

I haven’t got a great deal to say about the picture but I have to say that I really enjoy shooting with the Fuji compact. There is something about the way it handles and about the very satisfying click that the artificial shutter sound makes that makes me want to take pictures. Professional photographer, keen amateur or camera novice – it doesn’t matter as long as you get that “I want to take some pictures” feeling every once-in-a-while.

    1. I’m too stupid to know whether I’ve taken the picture when using the viewfinder unless I hear the sound. It is very quiet but it is there…


      1. You? Stupid? I think not, but I know what you mean about that moment of doubt. I’ve got used to the silence and find myself doing street photography where I never did before. I don’t like shooting sneaky-beaky, but it does mean people aren’t alarmed by the click of a shutter and you get natural behaviour.
