I posted this in the Gallery, but uncropped and unrefined, so some of you may well have already seen it. Dr Orloff has helped me to make this a more pleasing photo :

Superb. Sometimes the "just snapped" shots turn out to be the best

Excellent, love the touch of the surreal. Reminds me of Dr O's boy with fish pic in that way. Perhaps we should hold a comp - kids with weird pets

Is that one of those 'house' pigs?

Erm ..... yes, she had just done rounds of the kitchen. She had also investigated the inside of the shoe!

It was only there temporarily, now gone back to it's rightful owner.

I think this is a very special photo indeed, one which I have viewed many times. It is a fascinating shot with a definite surreal quality. The positioning of the elements couldn't be better, every little detail seems just right and the tonal range looks terrific. One of the best photos I have seen on this site.
