Description

Black-and-white image of a dog lying on a sidewalk, next to a street curb. There are three pairs of legs in the image, walking toward the right side of the image, and there is a dark shadow created by another figure in the left side of the image. The dog is white with dark spots, and it is turned toward the left side of the image. There are the legs of a female figure in the foreground, stepping onto the curb in front of the dog. She is wearing a knee-length skirt and dark, high heeled shoes. There are a pair of legs in the center of the image with short, white socks and dark, leather shoes, and another pair of legs behind the dog.
