Your Afternoon Animal Fix

If you have any fun or interesting animal/pet photos please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say what neighborhood you’re from or upload to the PoPville flickr pool with your pets name and neighborhood. I can’t guarantee I’ll get them all posted but I’ll do my best.

“Earlier this summer, I thought I was hallucinating when a dog on a skateboard went whizzing by my screen door one evening. I finally got his picture not long ago… Winston the bulldog lives on U Street in Bloomingdale.”

    Oh man, I needed the cute overload since my work day has totally sucked. I think I’m in love with Ben.

    Is Winston the same skateboarding bulldog that has been on TV (commercials I think)?

    • I don’t think he’s the famous one– apparently it’s just a bulldog thing! The owner told me it’s one of the only ways he can get Winston to exercise. 🙂

  • I’ve seen that skateboarding dog too! This is probably one of the best Afternoon Animal Fixes that I have seen yet! I love tortoise shell cats! I especially love the three dogs, quite an interesting pack!

    Please allow me to share this advice, I apologize in advance for mentioning some of the photos specifically or saying something that people may already know.

    I usually see the same problem happening in some of the animal fix photos which is that the subject is out of focus (i.e. first photo). I think the reason for that is that the photographer holds the camera too close to the pet which would be good idea for the photo effect, but lenses have a specific minimum focus distance (check your camera/lens manual). Compare to photo #3 where the focus is right on the face of the cat (great dof!).

    For photos #2 and #3, maybe that is what the photographer wanted, but in case you guys don’t know about it, that yellow-orange color can be corrected if you set the white balance on the camera or software to the type of light available in the room at the time the photo was taken.

    Now THIS is an animal fix. I’m not too bothered by the picture quality myself–the sheer adorable faces make up for it!

  • YIPPY! What a wonderful Animal Fix!
