Here's my friend Cherry visiting with my dog Dawson, from yesterday. I think of Cherry as Dawson's mom, as she was his owner until several years ago when her situation at the time could not allow her to keep Dawson. Cherry had found Dawson in the 1990s as a young beagle wandering the streets of North County during an ice storm.
I could tell that Dawson was very happy to see Cherry, and I think this photo does a decent job of capturing the fondness between the two.
To capture warmer tones that seemed so appropriate for this setting, I went without the flash and with a higher ISO of 1600. A little grain is noticeable at larger sizes.
