Man and His Dog by Nancy Stafford

One night I was photographing the Fallen Leaf Lake.. in a rowboat was a man and his dog.. golden retriever.. They were fishing along the edge of the lake.. The sun was hitting him and his beautiful dog .. as my dog Roxie and i watch the sun go down on fallen leaf lake .South Lake Tahoe,

September 9, 2011,
I finally got to meet the man and his dog
The photograph is of Ralph and his dog Laci,
I’m thankful that I got to met this gentleman and his dog
It was a special meaning for both of us.
I gave him a copy of this image for him to keep.
Ralph was so thrilled He was showing it to everyone he saw.
He talk alot about his wife Joann who pass away two years ago
of Lou Garet Diease.
The next day I called him to let him know the image was a tribute to his wife
Next year when I return to Fallen Leaf Lake, I hope I get to see him again

In Tribute of His wife Joann
