~ A bored Beagle puppy ~
I know it looks as though DS is poking her in the eye, but that wasn't the case. Poor camera positioning, is all. We met her again about an hour later on the Common and DS had a lovely time running around with her and our pooch. Her owners are Russian and have moved here because of the husband's job. The wife, Irina, seemed very nice, so I do hope that I've made a new friend.
And as for yesterday's shot ~ it's a huge event for the Muslim festival of Eid, which I think occurs at the end of Ramadam. There were thousands of people on the Common by 10:30am this morning (and most of them scared of the dog). From what I could see, I think the largest marquee is a form of temporary mosque. You can imagine what a nightmare parking is around the local roads ~ dog walking residents that I met this morning are none too happy.
