At the DC St. Patricks Day parade. Tons of people always want to get their pictures taken with the Irish Wolfhounds. This IW seemed disbelieving about that Irish dancer's hairdo. And he's a bit on the scruffy side. Loved both of their expressions, and the contrast in appearance.

3/27 - well the the HM was a surprise! I take candids all the time at dog-related activities, but most of them are probably more interesting to someone who knows: (1) the person or (2) the dog. Apparently this one was just interesting :-) Thanks, everybody!

What an expression on that dog's face! Way to be there in the moment, and props to you for being courageous on a few levels. Firstly, that courage to go out and take street shots which is the foundation of it all, but moreso the courage required for this far more intimate frame which the picture would be completely worthless without.

Things that would've brought your score up from my perspective: the luck to have the girl making true eye contact with our canine friend, and...you know actually on second look, that's it. So I'm upping the score now, hahaha. You're my second favorite this challenge. I haven't been to DPC in years, and I'm happy to be back. Shots like this remind me of why I am.
