Femme et Cheval (B&W)

Paris, France

I was walking out of the out of the Bibliothèque nationale de France about to cross the street to Gallerie Vivienne when I saw a woman walking a small horse. I pulled my camera out of my pocket before I realized she was actually walking a large Great Dane.

  2. Funny idea James!
    The dog is huge indeed,and beautiful.
    I like a lot this picture, the motion, the street scenery, and those doors with iron slim columns.
    And the street lamp for sure!great composition!

  3. Fabulous, James! Good reflexes with that camera and shutter finger. Now, my question is.... where in the world do they live and does the dog have his own apartment, or at least his own room? Lordy, I hope that she has a horse-sized "scooper" and does not leave his non-petite droppings in the street...

    (sorry for the indiscrete comments, but really!)

  11. How nice of the pooch to take his owner for a walk. I'm with Genie. Too big for a Paris apt and I don't even want to think of about the "present" he leaves on the street!
