This one's a winner. You may recall I take a lot of dog portraits and like them, but mostly because it reminds me of my grandmother's dog, Gidget, who grampa taught to "smile" as a puppy. But 13, with the messed up teeth, it was simultaneously adorable and a little terrifying.

Any pic that isntantly elicits the visceral memory is a good one.

Thanks! Appreciate that.

To wrap up this thread with something a little more serious, I thing the following from the recent New York Times obituary (https://www.nytimes.com/2022/09/28/arts/handelman-meyer-dead.html) of Sonia Handelman Meyer (https://soniahandelmanmeyer.com/), a member of New York's Photo League, is germane:

Carolyn DeMeritt, a photographer who curated the [Hodges Taylor in Charlotte] gallery’s 2007 exhibition, "Into the Light," said that as she sifted through the negatives that Ms. Handelman Meyer had preserved in boxes, she was surprised to see that she had not taken more than one or two pictures of any subject.

"She was just an unobtrusive presence, this small, young, nonthreatening woman, wandering all over the city, taking her shots and moving on," Ms. DeMeritt said in a phone interview. "I was amazed at how many wonderful photographs there were."
