This is a favourite photo that's been passed around my extended family. I have no idea how old it is, but it's been a few years at least. My uncle Thys is out on a walk with the dog, a friendly hound by the name of Bear, on a morning with the fog lifting. This is in Wellington County, Ontario, where he and my aunt lived with one of their daughters for several years. He's quite a character, one of two surviving uncles who, along with my dad, married into my mother's side of the family (my grandparents had four daughters in all).
I expect this photograph is taken by my aunt Winnie, who has appeared in this blog before (she's in the van pulling out of the church lot in the first pic). She is rarely without a camera, and will turn a four hour drive into a six hour drive by stopping to take pictures (this is an ideal thing- she is, as they say, good people). I like the shadows of the farm fence falling across the grass and gravel.
