Another dying patient image, done with available light, and converted to black and white.It seems as if a pug is the dog of choice for poeple dying to keep them company...no 'gardening' of the background done. Sony, f5.6 @ 1/13, iso 800, focal length 20mm, tripod.

“When we create photographs that are more aligned with who we are, that are unashamed and evolving, and that have no aspirations to be like anyone but ourselves, those images connect with others precisely because that kind of work is so rare, so human, and so hard.”

Excerpt From: David duChemin. “The Soul of the Camera.” iBooks.

Thanks for sharing!

Tx Susan...in die geval gaan die weduwee die hondjie versorg...en as sy iets oorkom , neem hulle dogter weer oor...n ander 'circle of life'...

Fantasiese foto. As n baie groot diere liefhebber wonder ek baie wat word van al die troetel diere wat hulle eienaars verloor as n  bejaarde hulle voor uitgaan.

Tx Caleb...the emotionally  part usually hits me when i give the wife the image after her husband had passed away...

Leon. Your photography is some of the most emotional I have the privilege of seeing. It engenders the same emotion in me, as some of those taken by Sebastiao Salgado, especially if I look at the edit in this one, it reminds me very much of his work. Well done again on another truly great image.

Yet another powerful image, which holds the attention with such an emotive subject, the dying man embracing his dog against the starkness of the surroundings, which adds so much compositional value, allowing the eye to travel inside the frame and always returning to your main subject.
