The shape of every day


This was the scene on the porch of a little food market in Port Renfrew. While we were there, a man and a dog arrived. The man was driving a three-wheeled motorized scooter, which traveled so slowly that the dog could easily trot alongside. The dog had a tennis ball in its mouth. The man got off the scooter, filled a plastic jug from the water spigot between the chairs. Then he and the dog continued along their day’s journey.

It was very ordinary, and I was glad to have seen it.

  1. Agreed – those moments are simply beautiful, the ones that are so often taken for granted. Wonderful photograph and story to accompany.


  2. Really nice arrangement!!! I think I’ve been there! 🙂


  3. I was a bit sad to have missed most of that scene, being in the store while it unfolded. I did see him driving off with his full water container and trotting dog.
