Floating the dog, Monterey, California, 2012

I have seen and photographed many people walking their dogs all over the world, but this was the first time I ever observed a man floating a dog. He skillfully paddles an elongated surfboard, maneuvering his German Sherman Shepherd between two ducks floating on the surface of Monterey Bay, neither of which paid any attention to the incongruous sight. I made this image just as the dog cast a hungry eye one of the ducks. The situation is incongruous, not only because the dog is floating instead of walking, but also because of the brace of innocent ducks flanking this scene.
