This unique photo is something God just dropped in my lap! I came upon this little antiques shop, and went inside to look around and snap a few pictures. Walking out to leave, I turned around to look at the front of the store. The composition, with the slogan, was quite appealing. I was about to snap the shutter, when some customers drove up and parked their car. A couple got out, and when the woman saw what I was doing, she immediately said, "Oh! You must take a picture of our little dog!" She went back, got the dog out of the back seat, walked over to the desk and set the dog down on it. That dog sat stock still, so I thought "Okay!" Dropping onto my knees for a low angle, I was amazed to see the reflections of the admiring couple. Bonus! [Click.] After they retrieved their dog I walked away, marveling at God's playful sense of humor, and thankful for this spontaneous moment I'd been given to capture.
