Dog scared of trains. by Drooper Dog scared of trains. by Drooper
My titles are always so multidimensional... Not.

I saw this lady with the dog a while ago trying to pull the dog into the train. The dog did not obey, and had to be carried. *snap*

A bit dull lighting, sorry about that, can't force the sun to shine. Hail to Finland.

Leica M4-P, 35mm, Ilford Delta 400

DD-X, scan from neg.

Dog scared of trains. by ~Drooper One could only hope to be sitting in a train, looking out the window and seeing this happen in front of them. Camera in hand! I hope the dog isn't constipated. ;) ( Suggested by micdt and Featured by cweeks )

I think this is an awesome shot. You captured what was happening and being an outlooker I am able to create a story just from this picture. Great timing I say! You got the shot at just in time, I wouldn't be able to get out my camera that fast, anyways, great shot, keep up the awesome work!

I did have my Leica already strapped around my neck. I must confess, that I saw the lady and her dog earlier on the very same station, and took my camera out of my bag. I had a feeling somehow, that I'd get a good shot of the dog. Strange. :)

Manual focusing is a bit hard, since the subject was moving, but I've used to that by now. I think it's sharp enough.

it looks a bit grainy.. did you push it? delta 400 shouldnt be that grainy i thought, especially in DD-X, odd.
really nice capture, when i read ther description i knew cweeks must've had something to do with DDing this, leica and delta 400 ;)....:D

Drooper Featured By Owner May 7, 2006  Student Photographer
It's a bit underexposed, hence the grain. No pushing done. I've never used exposimeter, since my Leica doesn't have one. I do it just by estimating the light with my eyes. plusminusonestep. I'm not that good at it yet. :)

its a shame people had to add their opinion about the way the dog looks and its brain capacity..and then to go on and argue on someones page..tsk tsk...your here to comment on the art and the artists talent..not whether the subject was ugly or not. :/

fwiw - this is a nice capture. i used to have a chihuahua and a cat who were both scared of cars, and they did the same thing..albiet i'm sure it was easier for me to get them in the car then it was for this lady to get this dog in the train.
