Whether two of a kind or ten, give us subjects that are in sync with one another — show us partnerships.

Bologna, Italy. The Basilica of San Petronio. A balmy June evening. While I worked on my second gelato of the day, a Bolognese gentleman and his miniature canine doppelgänger strolled through the piazza on what I assume was their nightly constitutional (or, for an Italian, a passeggiata), pausing on the basilica steps for some people watching.

man and dog

The two of them were perfectly in tune: the man looked left, the dog looked left. The man looked right, the dog looked right. The man shifted to find a more comfortable position, the dog scooted alongside. After ten minutes or so, it was time to move on; the dog trotted away at the man’s heel. No leash needed — they were in step (and there are no cars in the piazza). Passeggiata partners.

This week, share an image of partners. A pair, a trio, a sextet; people, buildings, plants — whatever you choose to shoot, give us subjects that are in tune with one another.

  1. Bologna! So close to my city! And I spent some amazing years there while studying at the University. As an expat, living some 3000 Kilometers from home, I shall thank you for bringing back some sweet memories in an otherwise dull day! And as usual, amazingly written!

  2. This dog and his companion (woof) are quite the pair – even their hair and physique is similar – I also love the soft focus to the back and then the two people that are walking and seem to frame the man’s head. In fact, I keep seeing more and more – fun theme!
