This couple made for a lovely set of shots with a very different perspective yesterday at the last Spitalfields tango of the season. That’s why, once again I found a word that suited the image I wanted to share. Cynomania apparently means a passion for dogs; some sources seem to imply the passion must be unhealthy and the others simply that it is a passion. Both owner and dog were very friendly and the dog seemed genuinely interested. I must have been shooting them for at least 10 minutes before the dog got restless.

It’s all about the dog – and the dance of course – tomorrow.

If anyone suggests a word that could mean ‘a dog’s passion for tango’ or ‘a dog’s passion for dance and I like it, I’ll dig up an interesting dance-related prize.. Keep it decent please!
