I read that John asked Bruce Weber to take these photos of Carolyn. Whether that’s true or not, these are some of the best ones out there, because she seems genuinely happy. She’s not in front of a paparazzi’s camera, but a talented photographer’s.
Once again, I’m amazed at Friday’s behavior. He is lying there calmly while she has a bird perched on her hand. He’s letting her pull his mouth into a smile and kiss him on the lips. And hold him like a baby? What is this lunacy?! They must have gotten a robotic dog from Japan! Anyway, I had a dog who was this sweet when I was a child and never again have I had such an easy pup. My dearly departed Zeus was a very high maintenance Catahoula Leopard Dog who hated everyone but us and my current dog Stewie is full of behavioral oddities.
And I swear somewhere I read about someone describing this photo shoot and they were touched by the photo of her leaning out of the car to speak into the intercom and Friday had a “protective paw on her back”. I wish I could remember where I read that, but it was so touching.
Ahem, sorry to get off track there. The third close-up of Carolyn’s face is super high quality. I scanned it in to jumbo size.
