This anonymous dog-walker, lost in his own thoughts but with his faithful pet loyally tagging along, may not even have noticed the exceptionally blue sea on a perfect autumn day at St Andrews harbour – nor all the other people with their dogs that surrounded him: at a respectful, privacy-preserving, distance, of course.
Frank’s theme this week is ‘Pets’. I don’t have pets, but my children do. This is quite possibly the most pampered dog in the world. Her name is Monza, she’s a mini Schnauser and she belongs to my son and daughter-in-law, who dote on her.
The sceptic in me can’t help feeling that this lady and her dog (oh, and the lace parasol) were artfully posed on the riverbank – with a very grand chateau in the background, by the way – purely for photographic purposes. Anyway, I think it makes a pleasing image for this week’s challenge.
