I wondered how my canine friends viewed the world from such a low angle, only interested in what’s in front of them, eagerly seeking the next best sniffing spot. It occurred to me that I was a bit like a dog, sniffing out images that fell before me, but I had a very different view from higher up.

After studying some of the classical photographers, I realised I had to work hard to get an image that would drive interest and enjoyment. I liked what I saw on the street but knew that getting in close would make the image.
