Wordless (well....maybe not) Wednesday Private Conversation

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Years ago while walking down a boardwalk in Astoria, Oregon, there happened to be many occasions for a photo op. Usually being a photographer of nature and landscapes, this offered a different opportunity. Little people, ambling by with their parents and dogs of all shapes and sizes passed by me while I strolled along. 

These two caught my eye. They had never met. I asked if I could take a photo of the two of them together. The pup's owner graciously held him alongside this little tyke. The baby made a high-pitched, happy sound and the pup's ear shot up and he looked at him as if to say..."what the heck was THAT all about??" 

They seemed to have then engaged in their own private conversation and the pup looked completely intent upon what this little guy was saying. 


A simple moment of connection captured in time.

How adorable...you know, a few years ago, it dawned on me that I should ASK for permission to pet someones dog first before crouching down, putting my hand out, etc....great shot!

Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® like you, I have learned, but my instincts were always to just say hello to any animal! 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel it's as if this pup is leaning in saying, "So, then what happened??" I don't know which one was cuter, frankly. They both had my heart!

It's those small intimate moments we often miss by being too busy in life, and Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty you are so right about slowing down to see the beauty. I did a lot of that yesterday while on a meandering walk with my dogs. I'll bet your beach walks are similar!

This is a great photo that embodies childlike innocence and man's best friend. Two little babies growing up together at the same time.

What an adorable picture, Gayle.  There is something about really young children and pups that allows them to speak the same language!
