Beautiful

This slide is good enough to have been used for some sort advertisement back in '52! The colors are especially rich, and the little boy and the dog make perfect models. Maybe they are going out to shop for some Strongheart dog food!

The Eyes

What composition, what a moment. The photo as a whole is just stellar, but the dog's eyes? Oh, wow.

K9 Wise Guy

Red Rover is talking out of the side of his mouth. Perhaps his name was Brian.

Not all art is found in museums

The photos from this series are truly wonderful. They are innocent, devoid of pretension, totally sweet and timeless. And have great use of color, especially the two kids.
