The trip that went to the dogs

Last time we looked at how having a quest or a theme for a trip or for a set of photos can add a great deal to the experience. Sometimes you start with the theme in mind. Other times, it just comes to you on the trip.

For example, on our trip to Peru last year, we hadn’t been out of the airport there for more than five minutes when we noticed the vast numbers of dogs running all around. My wife and son made a game to count all the dogs on our drive to the hotel, but they gave up after 300 – and that was within about 10 minutes.

So, here’s a small photo essay (click the photo to expand) on just a few of the dogs we encountered in Peru and an illustration of how what you discover along the way can become a theme all on its own.

Even if it means your trip ends up going to the dogs…
