POOCHES & PEEPS - A photo book of dogs and their beloved people.
I confess. I’m a dog nut. So when people ask what I enjoy shooting the most, it’s not much of a surprise when I say dogs. And dogs with their beloved people. I’m always hoping to visually capture an element of the special bond that has existed between canines and humans for centuries.
Here’s an excerpt from an untitled dog poem I especially like from author Gene Hill...
He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace.
