If you followed me in St. Louis, you know I love to photograph dogs in windows.
This dog was curled up and napping in its window on a ledge outside the drapes, 6 feet off the ground with the street and nearby corner its domain. It lives on a fairly busy area for both autos and foot traffic.
Nothing disturbed its nap until I came by and STOPPED. Up popped its head and it went on alert. It woofed, not loudly but certainly putting me on notice that I was being watched. I snapped the picture and went on.
I think it noticed me especially because I was looking right at it when it popped up. Would it have relaxed again if I were looking the other way? That's a test for another day.
