Kiss Me (Dog and Snail) - Belen Argueso Castelos
Sometimes you just have to go for the cute factor and this image is full of it. The expression on the dog’s face is priceless. I am sure if I could read snail expressions that would be priceless as well. I also like how Belen mad it black and white which gives it a very timeless feel. Please read her story below to find out what happened after this photo was snapped and then visit her beautiful portfolio http://www.flickr.com/photos/aanjay and follow her blog here http://belenargueso.blogspot.com.es/ .
This is one of the first pictures I took with my first Digital SLR camera. The picture quality is not very technical and is taken at home. I practiced a lot with my particular model, my dog Thyson, and this image was made by chance. I was amused and shocked when I walked into the street and saw the snails sliding down the sidewalk, so I grabbed one and took it home. I put it on a chair near Thyson. Both the snail and Thyson were very curious just prior to touch him on the nose. Once they touched Thyson he jumped with fright.
