Tired of shopping

dog_yawning_in_streetDeptford market in south east London is one of my favourite haunts. Visiting one Saturday, I spotted this Bull Terrier being led from stall to stall on a lead. Following at a distance I watched, hoping a picture would develop. And as the owner browsed, the dog looked more and more bored. Being a man who only shops when he has to, my heart went out to the dog.

Playing hide and seek with my subjects, I finally got a clear chance to shoot. Frame one was a write-off. In frame two the composition came together. Then as I paused, the dog yawned and I grabbed this third shot.

The picture cries out for a good title or caption. For now it’s called “The Deptford yawn”, but if you have another suggestion I’d love to hear from you.
