I laughed when I saw it. The dirty looks everyone is giving everyone else... classic. I do wonder how it would look cropped in tighter, eliminating the distractions of the left and right edges.

Good shooting, Javier. Good street. But it looks as if those two guys in the background aren't happy that you're shooting the scene.

I like the shot very much but the title bothers me. Perhaps I have
too much exposure to UK slang terms where "dogging" translates
to sexual acts in a public place or watching others engaging in
sexual acts in a public place.

Tony, Sorry for offending you. In L.A. it means exactly what the title says. When dogs get together like that in a pack, there are usually a couple or more alfa dogs and they tend to posture down and ''mad dog each other'' So this term is used among people here in sports events and other competitive sports and yes, gang members as well. So again, I meant no offense.

There is no doubt that slang is regional, and not everyone will understand it in the same way. When in doubt, I check the Urban Dictionary. Reader beware. http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...=mad%20dogging

The highest voted definition for "mad dogging":

Noun. Anonymous, public sex between strangers, usually taking place in cars or outdoors and in the presence of voyeurs.

I wasn't offended. Not at all. It's just that the phrase conjured up
a meaning that you didn't intend. The other meaning is regional, but
this is an international group, so you might want to take that into
account.

No problem Tony. Since I am not familiar with other countries sayings, perhaps you should just skip over my threads as you where obviously offended. Peace.
