Such a delightful doggie street shot!
A bit of history in the street and buidlings, human interest in the old woman, a touch of humour with the positions of the dog and woman within the scene, lovely rich colour and a great story. What more could you ask for?
My heartiest congratz on all the awards and accolades given this lovely photograph.
