I ♥ Faces – Week 36 : Contemplative (and Pets)



For this week’s entry, I had to dig through some really old photos. Folder after folder yielded no photo that was even close to “contemplative.” Until this one. This was taken during our trip to Rome in 2004. Chris and I were strolling along the Vatican grounds, with me having just started on one of Dan Brown’s novels, Angels and Demons, when I saw this priest walking across the square, deep in thought. My overactive imagination revved up, although your guess is as good as mine as to what he was plotting thinking as he purposefully crossed the square. What? Blame the direction of my thoughts at the time on the novel.

…and in my dig through old photos, I came across this one of a dog swimming back, tennis ball in mouth. So, here’s the entry for this week’s Pets category. This was taken in 2003, near Yaletown in downtown Vancouver. The dog would tirelessly jump into the water and swim out each time, happily retrieving the ball for its master. What a dog!

great choices. You cracked me up with the priest comment.

Maybe the priest was preparing his next sermon in his head--regardless, he is contemplating something. Great capture. And I love the water in your pet picture. It is so serene.

PS Your sushi demonstration made me very hungry. . .

Love the story behind the shot of your priest. Isn't it fun how books can transport our minds in all sorts of nefarious directions?!

I love how his cape seems to be flying out behind him as he walks. It adds to that whole "plotting" I mean "thinking" look. Watch out *** MAN ON A MISSION ***

AJ said...

Great photographs! The dog gives new meaning to "Go Fetch!" The strained look on the priest face....well...hummm...maybe it's just gas. Enjoy the day, I'm gonna!!!
