The Dog and his best friend

One morning I took this picture of an poor old man by the hut with a zoom from a distance in India . He had never seen a camera and much less a zoom lens, and thought that I had a gun pointed at him! The picture was shot just before he was startled and started asking me questions! I had to dismantle the camera and then went near him to calm him down. The painting when complete seemed lifeless, until I added his best friend to give life to the painting!
