Canine Fleet Week
My diagonal officemate Genevieve Futrelle played hooky on Tuesday to visit the Westminster Dog Show with her friend Francesco Vitelli. (If you’ve seen my new year’s pictures, Francesco is in the white tie.) Genevieve came back reporting a large number of large, middle-aged dog women and slender, middle aged dog men (dog queens?) Her pictures, to me, show an oceanic contrast. Fleets of identical dogs and their identical handlers sail in formation over unruffled acres of flat green Astroturf, then crash on blocky jetties of travel crates and grooming tables piled head-high in the back room.
That metaphor needs work, but the pictures are cool. Here they are! (You may have to sign in to Ofoto to see them.)
