Icy Bear 2

Icy Bear, Rochester Minnesota, June 1976

Icy Bear 2 – Rochester, Minnesota, USA

We were playing baseball in the park on this sunny June day and it was time to take a break in the shade. Icy bear was thinking the same thing. Wherever we went, he went. He was the family dog after all, and that’s what family dogs do. They watch over, protect, and amuse everyone all at the same time. When it’s too bright for good photography, you head for the shade so this was perfect timing to make yet another pet portrait of my favorite canine subject.

John Loengard

“Usually I think if there is something imperfect in a photograph it makes the picture more real. Photographs that are slick, smooth, and perfect seem less honest to me.”

When I made this capture, my first thought was a NYC pigeon on vacation in Arizona practicing his fence walkin’ on a bent over branch of a saguaro skeleton. Turns out he’s actually a morning dove…much less annoying than a NYC pigeon.

I search for beauty on this windswept beach yet there is cognitive dissonance, maleficial thoughts of a sea monster bloodthirsty even in death, slithering through shifting sand as he closes in on his prey.

I have no idea what this symbolizes, if anything, but I thought it a most unique and creative lamp-post.

Famous Photographer Quote #0239

Joyce Tenneson

“Through a portrait, we can potentially see everything — the history and depth of a person’s life, as well as evidence of a primal universal presence. I have dedicated my life and creative energy to capturing these transcendent moments in which a connection is made between the subject, the photographer, and the viewer.”

Joyce Tenneson
