Boston, MA 082610 A combat-boot clad James Fluhr (Cq) ,originally from Tennesse and now in Boston while attending school, walks his twelve-week old Chihuahua named "Bitbit" on Newbury street during a balmy day in Boston on August 26, 2010. (Essdras M Suarez/ Globe staff)/ MET BEHIND THE SCENES: Today I'm the 3:330PM-shift guy. As it usually happens by the time you come in to work this late most of the assignments have already been shot. So its up to you to come up with feature photos. The other duty of the late guy is to listen to the scanner in case news break in the city. TECH STUFF: Shot with my trusty 80- 200 2.8; ISO 640; aperture 4.0; speed 1/320th. PHOTO THEORY: The obvious reason this photo works is the subject matter: the cute puppy and the juxtaposition of the "tough" look of the owner's shoes. Also note this was shot from a very low angle to emphasize the disparity in size between the boots and the petite canine plus this angle offers a clean background.
