Weekly Photo Challenge

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

My submission is that of “Life Partners of Love and Happiness” as from the Teochew Chinese Opera entitled “Tale of the Dragon Princess”. This is the marriage scene. Love has no bounds and blind as an immortal fairy Princess from the sea fall in love with a mortal human being. In the end she gave up her immortality to marry this male human being.

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.

Photo not included of 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.
