paris, a woman and her dog

each other

Images of the Midwest are taking a backseat to Europe for a while as I recently returned from holiday in London and Paris. To say these cities are photogenic is an understatement; I took over 1,500 images – all with my cell-phone camera –Β  in ten days.

Just beyond a line of street artists somewhere along the Quai de Conti, I was stopped in my tracks by the sight of this old woman and her dog. She was gracious in allowing me to take her photograph and even kinder when I asked if I could pet her dog, whose tail wagged frantically as he nuzzled into my hand while she spoke lovingly to him in French.

It’s clear this is a relationship based not just on love but also mutual dependence and necessity.Β  They have each other, and maybe that’s enough.

  1. Hello janxxgeist, thanks for your kind comment! I admit that out of the 1,500+ photos, this one is my favorite. The other 1499? Still on my phone, waiting for attention :-). I’m being extra careful not to misplace it until they’re all safely on a flash drive! Thank you again, janxxgeist.

  2. A furry friend keeps misery away πŸ™‚ A beautiful shot! Welcome back! Hoping your journey was pleasant.

  3. Brilliant to have you back posting again Sharon πŸ™‚

    What a great image and post Sharon, it must be hard to find words to describe the daily life these two must have but you have captures a true felling between the two of them and reflected on it wonderfully.

    I Love this image Sharon – Well done πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ and thank you !

    Nigel
