I had just gotten my new camera, a Canon 40D, in October when I could not wait for my CF card to arrive by mail and had to rush out and buy one at the store. Along my way I ran across this homeless man and his dog. I took over 500 pictures of the two. The thought of the event still brings tears to my eyes. I have not been able to locate the two since that day, but I keep searching.
Here’s what happened: I spotted this homeless man with his dog, he was ever so gentle and loving with man’s best friend. Chris told me his dog Brandy was all he had in the world. His last dog was taken away from him by the police and put to sleep, because he did not have tags or a licence. How can anyone take the only thing that a homeless person has? Chris and Brandy both have such beautifully soulful eyes. Through all the pictures I took, this man was smiling. I kept wondering what made him so happy? Maybe it boils down to having the one you love with you, his dog.
