Innocent eyes of patch the dog

Here I took a photo of a friends dog in Chiswick house and gardens. In his eyes you can see a sense of tiredness and innocence. I like this photo for the defined focal point and blurred background. Also he’s just a good boy despite his larger figure.

Just Chillin’

There are always plenty of squirrels scurrying around – this one caught my eye because of the beautiful colour scape created by the squirrel and the sun pouring through the leaves of the tree. I was amazed it stayed still for long enough for me to capture it, but I guess it was quite happy just chilling on his branch!

Another Brick in the Wall

Have often wondered why the bricks on the neighboring garden were out as soon as they were replaced. Clearly someone’s favourite seat. Not pictured – more urban foxes sitting right above.
