One cannot look deeply into the eyes of an animal and not see the same depth, complexity and feeling we humans lay exclusive claim to – Nan Sea Love.
We were wandering around a temple in Chiang Mai this time last year, somewhat separated from our group, when we came across a little collection of ornaments (see below). We were snapping away, giggling at these little guys, when I spotted these brown eyes staring back at me. It gave me a bit of a surprise, but he just blinked slowly and didn’t otherwise acknowledge being spotted. I’m not sure if this dog was well-looked after, he has such a melancholy look about him. I suspect he wanted somewhere to hide from the crowds of people.
Those eyes really resonate with me, they have within them a depth and complexity and feeling as the quote above says. Poor little fella, I hope he is ok.
This is my submission for the Photo101 Rehab Clinic. If you want to join (it’s great therapy), please head over to my dear Lucile’s blog for all the details. Each of these photos was taken with my Olympus OMD EM5 with my 60mm lens wide open at f/2.8.
