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 – 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. They have each other, and maybe that’s enough.
ahhh! 1500 pictures in 10 days … where are the other 1499? 😉
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.
The drama is palpable–well done.
Hi Sally, thank you :-).
A furry friend keeps misery away 🙂 A beautiful shot! Welcome back! Hoping your journey was pleasant.
