Dogstar Thursday – vol. 5

It’s the Bean!

A lot of my dog photography has been of dogs in action and to this day, a lot of people still know me for this part of my work.  Portraits are a bit rarer in my oeuvre, so here’s one that I enjoy…

Dora

The dog in this photo is our youngest Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Dora aka Bean.  Her full name is White Raven “Salute of Innocence”, Dorothea Lange.  Dora is now almost 3 years old and has quite a sense of humor, which is not a bad thing in a cute dog.

She stays busy with duck and sheep herding and agility, which means that she has something on her schedule most every weekend.

It is not coincidental that this little love shares her name with my favorite photographer.  As I got to pick her registered name, “Salute of Innocence” was an easy choice, as it is one of Dorothea Lange’s most poignant images of Japanese American children saluting the flag during the pledge of allegiance.

Salute of Innocence – Dorothea Lange

This image is from Dorothea Lange’s time photographing Japanese Americans in internment camps in 1942; a dark period in American history that we should ensure to never repeat.
