his name is hermanito... by cweeks his name is hermanito... by cweeks
venice 02 ... just for your information [link] was Venice 01...

the dog had a fucking mohawk! i mean as much as i would first think that this guy wanted attention ... i think that perhaps it's just a form of self-expression...

even though it's his dog.

so ... i walked up to this guy ... and said, "can i take a picture of your dog?"

they almost always say yes ... and if they don't i just shoot from the hip.

maybe not this time as i was shooting at f/1.0 and focus is more than critical.

hermanito!

Little Herman.

i like that.

i wish chi-chi had enough hair for a mohawk...

maybe i could do the jessica simpson on her and get extensions for her.

okay ... perhaps not.

momentary lapse of reason.

leica mp. noctilux 50/1.0. 1/500th at f/1.0. afga apx 25. exposed and processed normal. NO, THIS IS NOT DIGITAL.

My neighbors once found this dog that had a natural mohawk, very similar to that dogs except that it stood up more. He was cool.

"momentary lapse of reason."

I have these a lot when it comes to my pup. He's all white, and I have this constant urge to dye a blue racing stripe into his fur across his back from his nose to the tip of his tail. :-p

Awesome photo by the way. The guy and his dog really seem to "fit" one another. :-)

I didn't read all 5 pages of comments, so maybe someone already suggested this, but I think that could be a Chinese Crested Dog. And, I knew someone who got hair extensions put on her dog. Pink ones. Not recommending it; just sayin.

there used to be a dog that lived on the 2nd floor of an apartment building right on the boardwalk there. He would drop his ball and bark at people to throw it back up. funny stuff.

i like the pose and perspective. 25 is so smooth.
i'm sure it wasn't burning up in that sweater.

for some reason this reminds me of Sam, the world's ugliest dog.
