Nope, nope, I’m sorry I tried. I looked at it from many different angles – with the building at the corner in the frame – I’m sorry I still don’t like it. I really did try though.  And to be honest the photos look better here than it did in person – you can’t really see the cinder block mass on the sides…  Awesome location though!

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
