There I was at the Newport Jazz Festival checking out the party boats when I noticed a dog jump in the water and head for a floating empty water bottle. I waited until the dog got to the bobbing water bottle and just as I went to click the photo the guy next to me pushed me. I turned to him as he smiled and said, "That's my son your trying to take a picture of." I told him I had no idea what he was talking about and clicked these two photos.

    Great shot....cute doggie! The red leash is nice....can't help but wonder why he has a leash on while he's swimming. The man must have been referring to the dog as his son, or he was just plain nuts! Anyway, another very nice photo for your fantastic "red" series, John!!
