He is patiently waiting for dinner outside the cottage at Jayanti. He waits there every night when dinner is served to guests inside.
Today I was waiting for him to arrive! The caretaker boy had informed that the dog would come, sit outside the door and would not leave the place until he was given the remains of our food.
The dinner table is just behind the blue curtain.
He came and sat beside the tree.
When I set everything and going to click, he suddenly stood up and sat where he is sitting now! Thankfully, he was still in the frame. I took no chance and pressed the shutter.
I was lucky that he sat there for 15 seconds without much movement of his head or tail.
Shot at Jayanti, a small village in North of West Bengal, India, at 20:38

I didn't found immediately the dog but he is well present ;o)
I like the very special atmosphere of that photograph, the particular red light outside, some stars I guess and that vivid colors giving the feeling it would be pleasant to be inside.
Nice picture, congratulations.

the colors of the curtains burst out of the dark background, but we can still watch the dog waiting for an invitation to come in.

the colorful curtains on the windows are a wonderful contrast to the night ... like a colored lantern.
A beautiful picture!
Friendly greetings from northern Europe

A different shot of India, but still a colourful one! I like a lot the open door and the colourful curtains inside - what a contrast with the dark outside. A good capture with the dog sitting outside!
