      haha - lovely. It's always best to let sleeping dogs lie! One of my faves so far.

      thanks so much for all your comments, and to think this was a one off shot I took, literally a moment caught, no other shots of them, as it was hard to not get noticed. A lucky moment.

      There's a dog who's comfortable with authority. Great catch!

      The dog doesn´t matter what is happening there, this result hilarious, but the police presence with shields never is a good or funny thing. Well seen and composed, I also like the lamps shadow!

      Spotted in POTY - congratulations! (it's a shame they spread it over two pages just where it mattered) I just had to come back for another look at the real thing - love it.

      Thanks so much Eleri. It's also in Digital Photo (November edition) as well as Practical Photography, there it's on one page which as you say makes all the difference! I'm so glad you like it! Thanks again.
