His Story

What does this picture mean to you?


It's fair game, I don't know who took the photo, nor do I know the subjects' names or circumstances.

I have, however, heard many detailed interpretations. Why do people connect with the photo and feel a need to describe a deeper meaning.

Isn't it just a guy with his dogs? Or not?

What do you think?

    His dogs mean a lot to him. And he to them. For instance, he’s dressed in late 19th Century clothing. Which means he’s from a society with more proscribed conventions than ours. This unexpected, original, and casual pose is startling for his time. He does adopt a sober expression, though. So he’s still in the 19th. If he was smiling, I would have thought it was a current photo, doctored to appear old. Great shot. Where did you get it?
