Veteran of Waterloo with his wife, 1850. This photo was taken 35 years after the battle. There is no info as to the nationality of the veteran. The attire gives no real clues. One thing's for sure: there were no veteran's benefits for this couple judging from their rather scruffy overall appearance. .
By Paul Croes - I love this photo, the shadows that the photographer has used makes the dog look more alive than 2D. Although, I dislike how the photo is so dark - it creates sort of a depressed look. The photographer will have used a studio to create this look with studio lighting on the left side of the dog, to create the shadow.
