Just Not Bad Enough, I Guess
This image started out as a kind of a joke about what if “bad dogs” had a club, but soon became more about the idea of exclusion and the oh-so-arbitrary decisions around what or who is acceptable or not,
This idea dovetailed with a conversation I had earlier today in the gallery with a young woman who is trying to find her way as a photographer. Not only has she been told she does not have the right equipment, but that she is not taking pictures like she “should.” And the thing of it was what little she showed me demonstrated a promising eye and vision. I hope she continues to listen and trust herself. Too often we can get pushed off the path and it can become mighty hard to reclaim our place.
So what dog would make his way into the Bad Dog Club–why, the littlest man of the house-Hubble. Small in size he may be, but he has attitude to spare. Ask Jack Henry who has been on the wrong end when trying to boss Hubble around.
Today’s Dog Quote:
“I don’t understand people who don’t touch their pets. Their cat or dog is called a pet for a reason.”
