100 words on walking the dog
I just noticed Sukie is actually in the shot I took on our walk last night, and momentarily considered cropping her out because it dispels the mystery of the shadows; unto itself, the image could be a stencil on the concrete, or an echo of a presence, which I guess shadows and photographs, being a sort of shadow, are. It looks lonely. But walking the dog is anything but lonely even though the two of us are completely absorbed in different things. Walking is communal. I know this because she whined to keep going when I stopped to post this.
