Quoting Man Ray

Right: Kind of Miles 2004, Manipulated digital photo

While at a friend's house photographing his guitar collection, his wonderfully friendly dog Miles, who is an absolutely massive animal (a thyroid problem, apparently) lumbered over to the backdrop and parked himself on it, with his back to me.

I immediately thought of Man Ray's famous photograph, and grabbed a shot of Miles. A couple of f-holes later, my comparison was complete.
