Street Calligraphy

Street Calligraphy

It's not uncommon to see elderly men practiced in the fine art of calligraphy expanding their skills using large horse-hair brushes to write calligraphy on street tiles using only water. Although their work disappears after a short while, it only makes it all the more interesting. Nanjing, Jiangsu, China.

A shot of my two beagles Mushka (left) and Yashka (right) about to bay or howl. I have treats in my hand and they've been trained to bay on command. I love Mushka's face here in particular as she tends to go cross-eyed pre-bay.

Me, Please

A shot of my two beagles, Yashka, Chinese name Xiaojian (foreground) and Mushka (background). Yashka is infamous amongst our friends for several reasons. This photo captures the essence of his limelight stealing tendencies. Even with Mushka in the distance, he wants all of the attention on him.

Wall Dump

Wall Dump

A shot of my very talented beagle Yashka, Chinese name Xiaojian. Since he was a puppy he seems to prefer defecating on vertical surfaces. While outside, he will find trees to suffice. In our house, the two dogs have adopted a solarium as their bedroom. When we aren't at home they stay in their room which has a wire kennel which acts as their bathroom. They have been trained to use it since puppyhood. However, from time to time he can't resist the urge for a Wall Dump.
