"I happened upon this scene while photographing a hotel on a hillside in Tuscany called La Bandita. I was shooting the exterior of the hotel with the owner when the sheep walked by the property next door. We immediately hopped the fence to try to photograph the sheep in the foreground to give a feel of the location. The dog that was originally with them deterred us with growls and barks but Pepe, the dog pictured here, stepped in. He was a dog the owner of La Bandita got to know over the year or so of construction. Pepe sat right down in front of the sheep, calming them and gave me a pose that turned this shot more into a portrait than anything else."
