A Photo A Day and One For Yesterday…

…for a total of three.  Upon viewing this photo I began to wonder how often I strike this pose.  And how much I might resemble an orangutan when I do.

Dogs seem to have fun no matter what they’re doing, even when it’s dangerous.  Do they realize the danger? or are they adrenaline junkies?

This one from yesterday is a favorite because it almost looks staged.  I’m thinking the photographer was directing the people rather than being in the right place and time to capture this image.  I mean, how lucky is this shot?  Did the photographer wait for something to happen in front of the “fun & basics” store, or did they just see the store and think, “Hey, wouldn’t it be funny if I had some people pose in front of this?”
