Homeless Man and Dog

I tried several times while photographing this homeless man and his dog to capture the obviously close bond between them. However, try as I might, all of the photos seemed too posed. It wasn’t until we were walking away that my dad happened to look back and saw the man with his arms wrapped around his dog in a spontaneous, loving embrace, their foreheads resting affectionately against each other. I quickly ran back and began snapping pictures. Later, when I walked away once more, I did so with the satisfaction of knowing I had just captured a special moment on film between a homeless man and his best friend.
