Black-and-white image of a dog sleeping on a concrete surface. The dog is medium in size and has dark fur, and it is turned toward the left side of the image. There is a thin, straight metal grate underneath the dog, which runs through the image diagonally, toward the bottom right corner of the image. There is a dark shadow which creates another diagonal line through the image, in the opposite direction. The dog is lying in the crossing of these diagonal lines.
