PHOTO DESCRIPTION
27/11/08  Following Simon and Valeria's judicious remark I have cloned out the sharp light on the foreground and indeed I think it looks better.

The title is an homage to Jim Jarmush's fantastic film : "Ghost dog, the way of the samurai", with the excellent Forest Whitaker.

I feel always sorry for these big dogs who live in towns, most of them do not get the exercise they need, there is a certain fashion around to have huge dogs, even huger cars... the owners either are more of the rich kind, or youths who want to impress with them. I do far too often see a sad look in their eyes. In Iceland , for example, dogs are not allowed in Reykjavik, you can own them but have to bring them outside town for a walk. I would agree to that, with an exception for the smaller ones, sorry if I tramp on somebody's paws:-).  Taken last year during the pre-Christmas rush.

Good capture of the dog here, Michele. A real nice blur, but enough of the dog's head to ive the photo a bit of meaning, i.e we can see some of his face.

This required courage, Michelle, to do this.  A brilliant impressionistic 'drawing'.

Wonderful, gauzy texture here, a stunning job of suggesting something ethereal. Very confident "Pro" work t seems to me... Francis
