A nine month old baby, a dog and an ice cream cone adds up to an adorable scene. The toddler wants to share his ice cream cone with the dog, the four legged thing that has been with him since birth, his constant companion, and the one he relates to most except for his mother. Why not? The toddler is used to pushing food off his high chair tray and watching the dog slurp it up. No harm, there’s always more Cheerios to eat; why would this be any different?
The toddler without an ice cream cone and the dog missing from the scene adds up to a very distraught child. He learned a lesson today and it was a tough one to swallow, no pun intended.
I took these two pictures as part of a Basic Photography class. Using a 35 mm camera, the assignment was to take a series of pictures that told a story, then develop the film and print the photos. These two were part of a seven-photo sequence.
Thought for the Day: Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
