“Against the Tide” Photograph

For me this picture says a lot about the human-dog relationship in Thailand. This street dog is obviously very comfortable in a crowd of people most whom it has probably never met before. Similarly, the people are comfortable with an unowned dog in their midst and happily ignore it to focus on the more important task of shopping.

But what I particularly like is the independence suggested by the dog walking in the opposite direction to the majority of people. This is an animal that chooses its own activities and wanders where it wants to wander, finding its own space.

Photograph taken at “Saturday Walking Street”, Chiang Mai, Thailand
