In the parking lot

When I parked my car, I looked to my right and saw this little guy waiting patiently in the next car. Matt

That's really nice Matt. You are finding art where most people would never look for it. That's one of the best rain-on-the-window images I've seen posted. The hazy appearance of the dog's face simply adds to the image rather than diminishing it.

I agree with Minnie and Frank. Wonderfully engaging; it says so much!

Linda, Minnie, Frank, Many thanks. I felt so sorry for this little guy but realized the owner would really enjoy the welcome back to the car. I am glad the camera focused on the drops not the dog; it kept the feel and universality of the moment. Matt

I have taken to taking my dog with me (as much as I can) when we go places. Now I get to wait in the car with her while my wife runs the errand. Don't feel too sorry for the mutt, I bet he is happy to get to go places with his master. The ones I feel sorry for are the ones chained in the back yard.

Growing up in the city, we never had dogs. Our older son and his wife have had three now, two of which they have had to put down. One was Harvey, a black lab/border collie cross, the kindest of dogs. He would take food from his dish and drop it in Tinkie's, a snippy Dachshund who could never get enough to eat. When we visited, Harvey would come over and sit at my feet. A great comforting feeling. I guess he knew I needed it. Matt

I know I like a lot of photos, but I could not think of a better way to take this image!

The fogged window gives just enough to see the little fur-person but not enough to give it away, and that rain is beautiful. Look how perfectly that one drop is splitting the face in two, and neither cover its eyes. This was a meant to be! S-

Thank you Steve. He didn't bark or move; a great companion. Matt
