I was sitting at our little base station on the beach waiting for my husband and son to return, and I decided to set the focus on the Rollei right at the point where people were walking by. I had the cable realease attached and I cocked the shutter. Just then I heard yelling off to my right, and turning my head I saw this little dog had gotten free of its leash and was tearing down the beach right into the path of a fun photograph. I hit the shutter as he tore past and prayed I got it in time. From the yelling, I gathered his name was "Charlie".
