Lee Marks Fine Art is presents ‘Cats and Dogs’, a solo show by Tony Mendoza.
These dog pictures were taken on a Sunday at the dog beach in Fort DeSoto Park in St. Petersburg, Florida. The series is entitled Dog Beach and is part of Tony Mendoza: Cats and Dogs, an exhibition presented by Ohio-based photographer and writer of Cuban descent Tony Mendoza. Carmen, his wife, a Spanish teacher, was attending a one-week Advance Placement Workshop in St. Petersburg. He tagged along, with their dog Bob, a long-haired dachshund who became something of a canine “muse” to the photographer.
Indeed, Bob loves it every time they go on a Florida beach vacation because they only rent houses on beaches where dogs are allowed without a leash. Bob enjoys going in the water, running up and down the beach, and especially terrorizing seabirds. On this particular trip, they rented a house with a pool on a canal, and the pool turned out to be a god-send. They live in Ohio and just before leaving for St. Petersburg Tony Mendoza had wrecked his back, playing tennis. He went to the doctor, and he gave him pain pills, which helped somewhat, but not totally. He could barely stand erect without feeling serious pain.
