Very intimate! Seems he is loyal to you! This is a supber quality of b/w presenting the relationship between human and animal! The reflection in your glasses is interesting and a little bit mysterious! 5*!

@flyingwind风飞扬: Thank you :)
He's actually not my dog, but we do spend a lot of time together. We were hanging out in the car while his 'master' did a quick run into a store. It was the perfect time to get the camera out and see about getting a few shots.
What an amazing image! That intense and somewhat sorrowful look in his eyes and you looking on so lovingly:-) Made me smile:-)

nice quote ;) and lovely portrait !!
14 Jun 2010 5:53am
A beautiful black and white...it is smooth and clean and makes me smile...
you look charming and the dog looks intent and very sweet.
I don't know how you managed to shoot an image of yourself and friend at that angle---
but so glad you did. It is heart-warming !!

@Dulcie: Thanks so much :)
It was easy to shoot with my Canon point and shoot (swivel back), but the most difficult part was to get the dog to sit still for more than 3 seconds :)
looks like a fabulous and trustworthy dog! I like the contrast of your smile and his/her sad look! very nice photo!
brilliant photo very very nice
superbe cette composition !

For me dog's expression says - you could do all kind of things even take pictures of me but I'll take care of you, don't worry! Nice shot! Emotional!
14 Jun 2010 6:38am
Love it. Wondeful portrait.
14 Jun 2010 6:44am
I definitely agree with John ! :-)))) Look at his fixed, concentrated stare. He is looking at you too (in the sense, paying attention). You're a VIP to him Sharon.
Love your smile. :-)

a lovely sefl-portrait and dog portrait at the same time ! Love your sweet smile and the serious of this beautiful dog !
14 Jun 2010 7:29am
Ah, just love to look at you in the eyes, my dear Sharon, and this "self-portrait with my dog" is touching and superb !
I feel some deep family link in his eye & your smile... as a One-face-for-two meeting at the corner of tender nose & mouth streets !
Have a superb week, both of you, guyz*
14 Jun 2010 7:36am
(i read above it's not your dog but i don't move a single word of my comment, there is a deep family link between those 2 sweet ones ! ;)
14 Jun 2010 7:38am
wow, what a lovely portrait
14 Jun 2010 7:39am
That so likeable and pleasant, full photo of good feeling. The black and white one is admirable.
14 Jun 2010 8:25am
a magic moment
14 Jun 2010 8:55am
Look at this loyal and tender look, like saying "you're my master, my friend and I'll follow you wherever you go!"
14 Jun 2010 9:05am
Brave lady with such a noted vicious animal
14 Jun 2010 9:16am
Yes, I see the look of concern in his eyes - "where is my master going?". Trying to stare through the walls of the store.
14 Jun 2010 11:28am
Nicely done Sharon! ;-)
14 Jun 2010 11:53am
So sweet! I love the look in dogs eyes, and I love your self portrait with this beautiful one. We have four of them at home. They all think we're nuts.
14 Jun 2010 1:19pm
You named your dog Sonny Rollins, how sweet is that. I have had cats named Marley (after Bob), Mingus, and Ra (Sun RA).
Nice portrait and I would have to agree with Mr Steinbeck's quote.
14 Jun 2010 1:21pm
very beautiful B&W
14 Jun 2010 1:56pm
jesus... Sonny Rollins the Dog... I couldn't help but smile. :-) Wonder how he would react, learning that people name dogs after him. :-) The funny thing is that old seasoned jazz musicians aften called "cats". :-)
I saw Sonny Rollings a couple of years ago here in Atlanta. One of the last giants of jazz. The Saxophone Colossus is 80, but blows his horn as if there is no tomorrow.
A very thoughtful self-portrait, Ms. Chameleon.
14 Jun 2010 3:06pm
Love the close up. So sweet.
14 Jun 2010 4:22pm
Humans are nuts :)
Fantastic work here!
14 Jun 2010 4:50pm
Excellent portrait!! The dog knows his master is gone from the car and the look in his eyes is the same my dog gets when I leave her with my husband to go into the store. She just stares straight ahead...watching.
They are so funny and we are so nuts! Love his name.
14 Jun 2010 5:30pm
Excellent portrait of you and Mr Rollins :-)
14 Jun 2010 6:00pm
Very cool shot.
14 Jun 2010 6:12pm
Super shot of you two, gives me a sense of a real close bond between you
14 Jun 2010 6:35pm
Terrific! And I like the reflections.
14 Jun 2010 6:58pm
Haha, that's a good quote. Never thought about how dogs perceive humans. I guess my dog sees me as a nut. Fantastic portrait.
14 Jun 2010 7:19pm
That's a cute image--the dog is trying to avoid the human distractions and keep his eyes on the road. ;-)
14 Jun 2010 7:31pm
Basically, dogs are right! You two make a fine looking couple. ;-)
14 Jun 2010 8:05pm
14 Jun 2010 8:47pm
he looks really serious here.. :D very nice shot.. :)
14 Jun 2010 9:24pm

14 Jun 2010 9:31pm

15 Jun 2010 3:24am
A beautiful couple.
15 Jun 2010 4:40am
Happy to meet you two :) A great pair!
15 Jun 2010 5:19am
very nice shot of you two. the doggie seems to be a bit sad, maybe you cheered the dog up!
15 Jun 2010 5:37am
@Liang: Thanks Liang. Naw, that's just his smooshy face, but he had eyes glued out the window, waiting for his master to come back from the store :)
One eye of each for a same look....................Excellent one,Sharon....
15 Jun 2010 6:35am
What a brilliant picture. Your smile and his a little sad and serious look makes a great contrast, and allthough some sort of harmony.
PS I don´t think for a second that he thinks that you´re a nut, Steinbeck must be wrong :-).
15 Jun 2010 1:16pm
lovely and sweet image! dogs are always lovely :)
15 Jun 2010 1:52pm
Nice to see you! The angle is perfect...The look of the dog intense...as a mateer of jazz indeed (I love Sonny too).
15 Jun 2010 2:09pm
comme je te l ais dit sur flickr, de tout beauté le pit, un double self portrait vraiment superbe ^^
15 Jun 2010 4:02pm
Wonderful self-portrait, Sharon....and your buddy too.
15 Jun 2010 4:11pm
une composition très réussie..la tonalité est remarquable..Bravo!
15 Jun 2010 7:22pm
Great shot! :D Love the dog's expression
15 Jun 2010 11:24pm
Mine would lock me up given the first chance...beautiful moment, Sharon, and one I can fully relate to.
16 Jun 2010 3:48am

16 Jun 2010 7:16am
17 Jun 2010 8:09am
It's just plain good to see your face once in awhile. Sonny's cute too ;)
17 Jun 2010 1:19pm

17 Jun 2010 10:24pm
Amazing photo and words ... the eyes of the dog but no eyes for the human in a very impressive frame .
19 Jun 2010 7:58pm
Beautiful portrait with your dog.
