I was with Charlie, a friend's German Shepherd, when I first discovered the soul of a dog...right there in her big, brown eyes. We lost Charlie to cancer a few years later, but I never forgot her. She moved me...her eyes reached out and touched me. The idea of Sophie began with Charlie. During the last two years, in my travels with Sophie, we've encountered many dogs....and each time I've discovered a new soul, a new and unique story behind those dogs' eyes. The Charlie Project is about telling those stories.
This blog, the beginning of the project, will host a series of short photo essays about the wonderful dogs that I come across in my life....some belong to family, some to friends, some to strangers in the park. I am hoping this project endeavor serves to strengthen my skills as a writer and a photographer. All the photos (outside of the Charlie images in this post) and writing are my original work. I hope you enjoy spending some time with these dogs...I know that Sophie and I did.
