Flickr a Day 174: ‘Dog’s Life’

Sometimes the best composition frames question “WTF?” That quality takes the Day—for symmetry, focus on the dog, depth of field, beautiful bokeh, and busyness of people and debris. I mean, frak, is this place always so littered, or was there some event or gathering beforehand? Captured in Greece, which nears default on massive debt, the photo is past-forward a metaphor for the country’s economic debris and chaos.

Elena Lagaria shot self-titled “Dog’s Life” on Dec. 8, 2009, using Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro and 50-150mm f/2.8 lens. Vitals: f/5.6, ISO 400, 1/400 sec, 65mm. She is no longer active on Flickr, which she joined in August 2008. But you can find Elena on Facebook.
