article imagePhoto Essay: Dog and cat friends in Fuengirola, Spain Special

By Anne Sewell     Dec 17, 2012 in World
Fuengirola - As an animal lover and amateur photographer, I enjoy capturing moments in the lives of my own, and other people's, dogs and cats. The following is a small selection of these moments.
Not so very long ago, you would not have seen me "sans" camera. I used to carry it with me absolutely everywhere. This was in the days when my then-three dogs were fit, young and healthy, and we went for very long walks each evening.
Now, reduced to one rather elderly hound, walks are much shorter, but at least the moments are available for viewing whenever I feel like it.
Firstly I took many photos of my three dogs - Hasha, a rescue from Fish Hoek, near Cape Town, who turned out to contain another six rescues! Yes, she was a pregnant stray. Rambo and Murray were two of her pups that I kept.

Along the way, we adopted a stray kitten, named Pancho who became a very well-read cat:

I love to experiment with light - particularly early evening, when the sun slants in, adding interesting shadows and textures. The port in Fuengirola is an ideal place for such experiments.
As other dog owners know, you tend to become friendly with other dog owners that you meet on your walks. Often, you know the dog's name, but not the owner's! When walking in the port, I made a few of these friends, and took shots of their dogs.

Sometimes I got a little more artistic than others, including coming across this gorgeous dalmatian, sitting on the sea wall with the light catching him just right.

Occasionally there were problems amongst the dogs. Here Hasha has had enough of Nanu's puppyish nonsense:

And sometimes I went further afield, taking photos of my son's labrador, Cachi in the countryside:

All in all, for anyone interested in improving their photographic skills, animals can be a fun way of practicing, catching the right light, textures and surroundings too.
