Black-and-white image of two dogs and an old woman, walking along the side of a street. The street runs vertically through the image, and there is a large dog in the foreground that is turned toward the viewer. There is a stone wall along the right side of the image and a cobblestone street in the left side of the image. In the middle ground there is an old woman with a cane. She is wearing an ankle-length, patterned dress and there is a scarf wrapped over her head. She is wearing dark sunglasses. There is another dog, seated on the side of the road just behind the old woman. In the background, further down the street, there is a truck, visible from the front.
