Got you covered

Mont Saint-Michel, Normandy, France. Taken in May last year at the castle at the top of Mont Saint-Michel. Could not resist taking this dogs picture.

Street Portrait

Walking though Lisieux, Normandie taking street photos, this couple saw me with my camera a posed, I think they were students. Don’t think you get many people do this, most walk by in a world of their own. Couldn’t help but not take this informal street portrait, if for nothing else but for the dog.

Taking notice

Street photography in Honfleur, France. As this couple walked past, I barked to get the dog attention and the woman looked at me instead of her Pappion, much to the amusement of the people sitting at the caf’e opposite.

Our spot

Plage de Deauville, France. This was the only couple to pick a spot on the sand here by the promenade. Everyone else was down by the waters edge, perhaps they just wanted somewhere quiet and who can blame them.

Yakky Yak

Continuing on the theme of dogs on the street. Deauville in Normandie. Spotted this little fellow on the Rue Désiré le Hoc, looking thoroughly bored to tears as he or she owner was gassing away to someone else on the street.

Reluctant puppy

We came across this young woman carrying a eight week old puppy by the Place Claude Lelouch in Deauville, France. The pup was very young and it was somewhat nervous about his surroundings. Personally, both my wife and I felt the dog was far too young to be out and about especially as the weather was forecasted to be very warm later that day.

Painted toes

Honfleur, outside the Alcyone caf’e. I saw this young lady standing bare foot holding her boots, so I took the shot. Now I know women like to paint their nails, but never someone standing in the street with cotton wool between her toes and then walk off like it. Even my wife raised her eyebrows!
