Dog day, Fatehpur Sikri, Indian, 2008

One of Emperor Akbar’s huge windows dwarfs the small dog sleeping below it. My 28mm wideangle lens, held vertically, allows me to come close enough to stress the textures and detail of the 16th century palace, yet still manage to include a dog seeking shade and rest on a brutally hot afternoon.

Leica D-Lux 3
1/100s f/2.8 at 6.3mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

So good to hear from you, Ana. You are right -- moments such as this can be forever if you have a camera in your hands. Or, as I did in this case, have it on my belt. A tiny little camera takes no space at all, and is always there when you need it.

I love this one Phil. It's just one of those moments when one would be cursing its luck if we didn't bring a camera :-)

Thanks, Kal -- yes, I had a similar thought. this could be Akbar's dog, resting at his feet for the last 400 years. Sublime peace, indeed.
