No, giant dogs have not invaded earth. These photos of enormous pooches create the illusion of great size through the intentional or accidental use of mixed distances without clear reference points.

Hippolyte Bayard, a pioneer of photography who claimed to have invented photography earlier than Daguerre, was one of the first to stage a shot. His “Self Portrait As A Drowned Man” was a reaction to not being recognized as the first photographer.

The dog is simply too close to the camera for its shadow to show on the picture, I guess it would have been right under the frame level. No photoshop needed here.

Pug! I love how pugs sit! Every pug I've ever lived with, every pug I've ever known, they all sit like this. I just can't get enough of this photo! I love everything about it! Bravo!
