As a photographer, I am always looking for new places to photograph interesting buildings. And on that particular day, I found myself in an industrial district of Sevilla, Spain. Guapo, my faithful companion, was by my side as always, wagging his tail in delight as we set out on our photoshoot adventure.
Guapo's nose lead us to a father and his small girl out on a walk as we made our way through the filthy streets. The small girl seemed curious at first, but as soon as she saw Guapo, fear overtook her. She clutched her father's hand tightly, refusing to let go.
Guapo is a huge dog with a muscular body that might startle anyone who didn't know who he was. But I also knew he was the sweetest of creatures, only wanting to play and make new friends.
hand tightly. Guapo stood at my side quietly, wagging his tail and staring up at her with huge, friendly eyes.
Then something extraordinary occurred. The tiny girl took a tentative step closer, her eyes still locked on Guapo. He sat up straighter, his tail wagging even faster, and approached her gently, as if sensing her fear.
It was a magical moment that I will never forget. As we said our goodbyes, the little girl ran back to Guapo and hugged him close around the neck as if to thank him for being such a good buddy.
