Photographer's Note

Finally Fat Tuesday is here, Lent is upon us and tomorrow the fish dinners at every Catholic church in St. Louis will begin. We have our favorites and don't mind going to them at all.

Anyway, I told you I would bring you all a weird pet photo, so here you go...

I don't know why this lady only dressed up her dogs (there's another one behind this bulldog/sunflower, but he doesn't command the attention of his sister) and did not put her own costume on like so many others, but it's Mardi Gras in Soulard, so you cannot judge. It would take a life-long commitment to understand the psychology behind the folks who participate in the Barkus Pet Parade anyway, so why bother? Just get a beer, relax and meet some people and their pets!

This one was one of my favorite shots of the whole day. I put another on TL - my two favorite shots of the day for Mardi Gras. Check it out - I think you will like it, too!

I hope you all have an excellent day - I have to take a short break because I have several things going on this week besides my normal job. I hope to be back posting by next week, but I will be checking the gallery from time to time (all work and no play makes me a dull boy!), so I'll be seeing you.
