This photo was taken at the end of family hike through the kind of picturesque countryside I never find photographically picturesque. I'm much more interested in a collision or the intrusion or at the presence of the humans. This cul de sac looks like a stage set. On some level it is. I was shooting with my Lumix pocket camera and I was damn lucky that the dog's paw is so perfectly posed. I count the triangulation of the three central figures as dumb luck and good fortune.
