Phodographer John Carr in Guayaquil, Ecuador Oct. 2009
While backpacking through South American, John has carried a Foto dog and printer to participate in Dog Meets World. He said he was “on a bus in Ecuador, heading for the border when I met a little girl near Guayanquil who had hopped on with her mother for a few miles. She fell in love with Foto the dog and was riding it around the bus – so sweet. She and her family loved the picture and the memory! ”
Best Foto of the Week!
