Thank you so very much. This photo is near and dear to my heart. It has left an impression that I will never forget. He actualy did more for me, than I did for him. So hard to explain, but is a feeling that I will never forget.

Thank you! Priceless it is. After I took this picture, I ventured over to speak to the man. All he could do was talk about how wonder his dog was. He kept covering the dog with the coat. Amazing man and with speaking with him, he was truly happy, even living with barely anything. I left feeling as if I gained more than he did from our conversation. I felt blessed.

Thank you very much. It pleases me to see that this image can effect and touch others, just as it has touched my life. I was blessed that day, for I learned so much in kindness just from one man and his dog.

A brilliantly captured image, my compliments for it and for your story. If I may...."Virtual reality is the ultimate empathy machine. These experiences are more than documentaries. They are opportunities to walk a mile in someone else's shoes." Chris Milk

"Do Unto Others"

This photo has touched my heart, like no other photo I have taken before. I captured this candid shot of a homeless man and the love for his companion, "Dog". This is truly the Mark of the our times.

This was the coldest day in the winter, and the man gave his jacket to his beloved dog, and kept him covered while they rested. Both owner and Dog look at peace and almost as if praying or in sync with each other. I later, after snapping the shot, approached to speak with him. He never asked for a thing, he spoke about his beloved companion, how friendly he was, and how he loved girls. He spoke of only happy thoughts and that he was blessed. I dropped him a few dollars after our short conversation, and as I exited, I could not help but think how he gave me more, than I gave to him. I left with such a great gift. A gift of compassion, a gift of, (even in hard times) being grateful. He taught me that we have the ability to make our own happiness.

I think of him and his companion often.
