I've read somewhere that the new photojournalism is a different animal; the technique, nowadays, is to arrive after the event and then record the special effects that said event caused to occur within the time frame of its manifestation, and then probe its residual memory within the realm of the present. (In fact, now that I reconsider, I believe that I am more or less quoting the delightful Annie L from her personal odyssey into the war zones of the Balkans with her erstwhile companion Susan Sontag. You can't get more validation that that.)

I feel specially privileged to have come across this particular scene which reveals, at least to the gifted viewer, the dynamic of the visceral reactions of the beast unleashed.

These are momentous days in which we live.

Did your dog make all that mess?  ;D

Wish the photo was a little bigger - I'm having a hard time making out the details.

The weather here was a little cooler over the weekend - it made sleeping in the sun a viable activity.

Nice effect, pity about the background though.

Rob you aren't getting evicted and being deported? Now that the SNP is in power in Scotland they won't let you back in. It looks as if you are now stateless. :) ;) ;D

Toke, you won't find him, the dog's reached Australia now: where did you imagine the pile of earth and plastic came from - The West Bank?

Stamper, I know (think?) you are jesting, but I have felt stateless nearly all my life. In fact, isolation of one form or another is like a state of normality for me. I believe it might be the reason why I tried so hard to find foreign work throughout my life, and ended - well, for the time being - living abroad. I think it's part of the photographic thing itself: one spends so much time looking, that in the end, everything seems to be the same but different, no matter where you find yourself. Even eating is slowly turning into a commonality, much to mankind's loss.

Tokengirl, how lucky you are in Florida! What a life quality.

I don't get it why Rob who lives in the most beautifull beaches of mediterranean sea never go to the beach?
Because of the dogs?

Here are some urban dogs in a hurry...like everyone here


Fred, you know why: no more models.

I hate the beach otherwise; all that sand getting in the car, salt on the paintwork, idiots kicking balls into everybody else's space (why do males have this obsession with kicking balls all the time, plastic, leather or human?), yuck! You can keep it!

Gaston is a Estrela Mountain Dog.
This breed has been used to guard herds and homesteads in the Estrela Mountains of Portugal for centuries.

They were having fun?

Yes, they were. The one on the left was a rather young mastiff at the time, and although the picture looks scary, they were just playing in the snow.

Slobodan, what breed is the dog on the right?  It looks like a presa canario.

Okay, here's my contribution to scary photos of dogs playing in the snow.  I realize that the photo is of poor quality, but I hope it's interesting nonetheless.

Indeed!

And to think we call them our best friends! Yes, I had a big pooch too, but it was an earlier, smallish fox-like one that was aggressive to larger dogs; it used to slip under their radar and grab the throat...

The larger one, the alsabrador, was generally rather coy and gentle, but she hated a large, black poodle that lived about eighty yards down the road. She always wanted to poop on its pathway if she could drag me over, but I tended to resist the temptation of letting her have her way. I'm a responsible citizen, after all! But at night... only joking.

Dean, I actually wouldn't know. Neither dog was mine. The one of the left belongs to my friends and I am pretty sure it is a mastiff. The other one belonged to a passerby in the park, but I believe (from the discussion between the owners) it was a mastiff too, older though.

I would not dance with that dog, or wolves, or bears.  Not with those knives in their jaws.
Scary indeed

Scary looking indeed!  But, that's what they sometimes look like when they're having fun.
