    suggestive and fascinating atmosphere in this series. We see two parallel nightlife here, the human and the doggy one. Stray dogs look almost human in these images, they keep men watch, but they also interact amongst themselves. I love the two images with the ghosts, and how during the night the objects look more real and alive than men.
