This is one of my favorite spur of the moment shots taken of a Shisa (Lion-Dog).
More of my shots of these Lion-Dogs protecting homes, businesses, buildings and bridges all over my island have been published online. They were researched by folks a lot smarter than me so, their stories are probably as close to the truth as one can get.
Take a peek if you have time and don't let the ghosts scare you. They were Photoshopped-in!
