17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
A Boy and His Dog

Our family dog always enjoyed the water and playing fetch. My son and I took her to a local creek one morning to run around. He had just started to play fetch with her. I noticed how focused she was, and really wanted to capture her feeling of anticipation. Our dog has now passed away, but this remains one of my favorite memories of her. I hope that my son will treasure this photograph of the two of them for years to come.
