This nice lady and her happy poodle posed for me looking longingly into a Starbucks door for the coffee that was due to come out soon. Normally I don’t ask permission of people to photograph them but, this fun composition wasn’t going to happen without their help.
It’s not often that one sees a rescue dog with an Instagram handle posing in the middle of a window of a fancy photo studio.( Maybe the previous sentence is an overstatement. Let’s change “It’s not often that one…” to “One never…”)
We live in very scary times. Anger, hostility and major confusion are all around us. This man, hugging his dog on a bench at Boston’s Public Library, seems to have found a sheltered Island from all this craziness. His devotion to the little dog is palpable.
I’ve visited the Garden numerous times since we moved here and never have I seen a wolf. A large mouse sometimes entertains near the gate to the Commonwealth Avenue Mall but this creature was new. (By the way, he loved having his picture taken.)
This soft eyed creature was lying in the window of a photo studio near where we live. There was no way I wasn’t going to take its picture.
Actually I was a little late taking this photograph. About 5 seconds before this the young man was hugging his dog in a loving embrace. Nevertheless the warm relationship between human and pet is still hard to miss.
Today we were walking along the banks of the Petaluma River looking for birds, when we came across this friendly couple looking like they were doing the same thing.
These creatures are supposed to be tree kangaroos. They were telling people in Boston’s Public Garden about how they were close to extinction. (The real animals are indeed severely threatened.) Nice to see Earth Day remembered so creatively. Now if only we humans can do better!
We recently spent a terrific couple of weeks roaming around Botswana looking at wild animals. This photograph is the first of a series. I realize this is a huge departure from the Boston street photography I normally post, but please bear with me, you might enjoy what will follow.
We’re in Botswana currently, (You probably guessed this would be a tough picture to take in Boston.) This leopard was my picture of the day for yesterday. It was a terrific thrill to see her.
