Black-and-white image of a man and a dog on a beach. The man and dog are seen from behind, walking toward the shoreline. The man is holding an object above head-level, in his proper right hand. The dog is jumping on its hind legs toward the man's hand. The dog has dark fur and the man is wearing a light-colored jacket and dark pants. The water takes up the top third of the image.
