London Light/London Life 6 - Friends for Life

Normally I'm not a fan of taking pictures of homeless people, I think its a subject that is tricky to do well and often feels exploitative more than informative.

But I really could resist shooting this chap, it was clear that he shared a very strong bond with his dog. As he sat there with people walking past he would regularly cuddle his dog & give it a kiss. It was really moving to watch the obvious bond the 2 shared.

Aw, I find it difficult look at homeless people with dogs. I know the animals are probably well cared for and fed, but if the person can't look after themselves then how can they look after a dog? Mind you, if you've got nothing else in the world, a dog must be a wonderful companion. I always just hope that each look after each other. Looks like this one's on Millennium Bridge. I'll look out for him.

Chris, there is a charity that helps: https://www.facebook.com/Hearthoundsuk , when you read the stories of some you can see how important a dog is for companionship and security.
That was on Wednesday, he wasn't there today but there did seem to be a lot of police about so I guess he had been moved on.
