Description

Black-and-white image of a dog lying on a stone wall in the foreground, and three men leaning against the wall, behind the dog. There is a body of water in the middle ground and in the background, behind the body of water, land is visible. The dog is white with dark spots, and its mouth is open as though it is barking. The men leaning against the wall are all wearing dark jackets. Their faces are turned away from the viewer.
