I am a native San Franciscan. Since becoming a photographer I’ve found The City always ready for her close-up, blemishes and all. I love doing shots here— can’t let tourists have all the fun.

  1. Good snap. Inadvertent or not, good social commentary, too. There looks to be more effort at protecting the dog from the elements than what the City has done or is willing to provide its citizens with or without a home. It could take some serious notes from the dog’s associate (owner, walker, pal?) about follow through, responsibilities, and decency.

    1. Thanks again ! Though wishing I could ld take credit, the social commentary was indeed inadvertent.Your thoughts are well–taken and too true. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks, Harry. That’s exactly what’s going on. (None idea who came up with that caption.) Actually missed a better shot shortly after: Four people wearing brightly colored raincoats while walking two dogs. Considering this weather, maybe I’ll get another chance. Cheers!
