Billy & Bones by hilaryw

My apologies for not having a description of this work and thank-you for all the lovely comments.

Billy and Bones the dog were inseparable.
This shot was taken after Billy’s diagnosis of cancer. It symbolises what eventually happened.

Music was a big thing in Billy’s life.

Billy survived 4 years of illness before he died, leaving Bones his companion. Even though Bones was looked after, after Billy’s death, she also died 4 weeks later, from what we assume was a broken heart. It was terribly sad.

    top shelf shot… excellent employment of lighting… one only sees afterward the figure receding down the hallway… fab composition and framing… and something else that lifts this photograph into upper realms, can’t quite put my finger on it… something surreal here, a sense of static unreality that I strongly suspect wouldn’t work in colour but comes through in b/w… brilliant.

    a contemporary piece with ‘period’ feel. dogs don’t really date do they! clean and sharp where it matters.

    dogs certainly don’t date, particularly ones that play piano
