Not drinking water

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week could be said to require some lateral thinking, as she is setting the theme of ‘side of things’.

In the medieval centre of the town of Cahors there is a hexagonal water fountain, with each of the six sides featuring a carving of a different dog’s head. This image shows two of them.

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Face In The Crowd

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.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Pets

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.

Bo’sun

I’m not really remotely a pet person, but this is Bo’sun and he belongs to my daughter and her family.

Sooner Watch Paint Dry

This little dog was tucked under its owner’s arm, not remotely interested in the horse-racing at the La Sagna Hippodrome, near Le Dorat.

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Connected

What could be more appropriate for this week’s theme of ‘Connected’ than a wedding?

I’m very happy to say that I took this photograph last Saturday at my son’s wedding. Stealing the show between the bride and groom is their much-loved dog.
