In his owner's car in the parking lot, Tito, one of Jimmy Kidd's traveling chihuahuas, waits patiently for his plain What-a-burger that he will split with Kinsey, the other dog. Kidd buys an extra for the dogs when he goes for dinner. "As part of doing a photo story on What-A-Burger, I went in the evening looking for an Edward Hopper ¿Night Café¿ type photo. While there, I wandered around the parking lot, looking for people eating in their car to flesh out the photos. In one car, Tito, one of Jimmy Kidd's traveling Chihuahuas, was waiting patiently for his plain What-a-Burger. The other dog, Kinsey, was afraid of the flash, but luckily, Adrin had lent me a 135 f2 which let me shoot with available light. I did two versions, dog in focus, hamburger in focus. Since the story was about What-A-Burger and not the dog, this seems like the better choice."
