Cawthra Square Park - AIDS Memorial
This morning I rose early from bed, took Maude out, went to grab my coffee and then walked up to Cawthra Square Park to take a few snapshots of the AIDS memorial. While there I ran into an old friend and his dog Ringo. We talked about our lives now, where we work, what we do in our spare time and of course, about our dogs. I usually rather not speak to people when I’m on a mission to photograph but I was happy to see him. It got me thinking that perhaps we were always meant to know one another.
As we parted ways I looked back to watch him walk away, and I felt sad, because maybe it will be the last time I will ever see him. Photo © Peach, Plum, Orange WordPress
