Stoic Puppy in Front of Buddhist Prayer Flags

During the Annapurna Circuit Trek in October 2012, I came across this little guy in Sattale, Nepal. I noticed that the puppy was right in front of the Buddhist prayer flags, and he was staring at a cow that was maybe ten to fifteen feet away. I took three or four shots over about a minute, but this one came out the best. I liked that the puppy was facing the opposite way that the prayer flags were blowing. Almost a microcosm of how we, in our innocence, try to defy which way the winds blow.
