PHOTOGRAPH 

"While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see." Dorothea Lange

DOG

Though I'm actually a cat person, I relish the mystery of the word "Dog", the oldest domesticated animal, and our companions for 33,000 years. Not only is the origin of the word "dog" one of the great mysteries of English etymology, but unrelated words for "dog" in other languages are also mystery words of unknown origin! Perhaps it was the invented name of a particular animal or the house or family or town or tribe where he lived, that eventually was applied to every member of the species!
