I've been fortunate enough to encounter some lovely dogs this week. Unfortunately, the resulting pictures have been uniformly terrible owing in part to the fact that dogs do not stay still for very long and also to the shortcomings of the camera on my phone, which appears to have an aversion to single-digit temperatures. So rather than post a bad picture of a good dog, i'll wait until i get some better pictures. My apologies to anyone who kindly gave me permission to photograph their canine friends.

I confess that i'm finding dog photography much more challenging than i expected, but i hope that with practice i'll be able to do justice to the many beautiful dogs of Rogers Park. It's hard to get a good picture of a dog: they aren't the most patient subjects. And as I've noticed since starting this project, in the RP the dogs tend to come in pairs, posing an even greater challenge. I encountered the dogs pictured here near the tennis courts at Farwell and the beach last week. All three were in pairs, but as you can see, i met with wildly varying degrees of success in photographing them.
