'Bucky' is part of a project that I have been working on for a while now. When photographing dogs I like to capture the emotion that all our pets have. Those fleeting moments that we see when you connect with your pet. I believe these moments are due to the human like qualities that our dogs exhibit and their innate understanding of us. Here we see Bucky in a moment of wistful contemplation. Maybe he is thinking about the treat that is in my hand or he could be thinking far deeper thoughts. We don't know for sure but we can relate to the emotion thats pictured here.
