Dogs act exactly the way we would act if we had no shame.

I’d just loaded my groceries into the jeep trying to keep them and myself dry during a soaking spring (I know it’s only March) rain.

Looking to my left and several cars away I spotted this beautiful dog taking advantage of the raindrops on his open window.

Before heading out the door I grab my camera and a spare lens the way most people pick up their car keys and phone. Most often I’ll have the 55-300 ┬álens ready to shoot with because that’s the lens that can capture the widest range of shots on the fly, the ones like this one that might be gone if you have to fiddle with changing a lens.

Dogs in cars…capturing them as they ride along or wait for their owners. They are such characters; some patient, some anxious, some protective.

I’m more comfortable with this form of street art. I feel less like I’m intruding on someone’s privacy especially since we are in an era where everything is fair game to be photographed or filmed.

He (she?) flopped down shortly after this image so I was happy that I had taken advantage of the moment at hand.

It’s all about being ready…

Make sure that you are.
