I've always loved this quote from the English Patient .. makes me think of how much I love the company of dogs! :)


"Her father had taught her about hands. About a dog's paws. Whenever her father was alone with a dog in a house he would lean over and smell the skin at the base of its paw. This, he would say, as if coming away from a brandy snifter, is the greatest smell in the world! A bouquet! Great rumours of travel! She would pretend disgust, but the dog's paw was a wonder: the smell of it never suggested dirt. It's a cathedral! her father had said, so-and-so's garden, that field of grasses, a walk through cyclamen--a concentration of hints of all the paths the animal had taken during the day."

PP.. converted to b&w .. and just added some warm tones to try and capture Gizmo's (our little French Bulldog) fur colour. :)
