Sand. Sun. Woof. Gorgeous photographs of dogs at the height of joy, on the beach, from photographer Lara Jo Regan ( Dogs in Cars )
Do dogs dream of sun and sand? Of unfettered runs down a beach, leaping over the waves and into the water, again and again? To plop down for a rest before starting up again, perhaps to play with one of the other lucky dogs whose been set free to enjoy the salty air. Certainly dog lovers enjoy watching the energy and pure pleasure their pups experience when they find a dog-friendly beach. Lara Jo Regan, whose ability to capture dogs at the height of play in her photographs is astounding, wove her spell once again with these images of dogs at the sea.
If "the irresistible doggies digging the feel of the open road will leave you drooling with delight," as USA Today said about Dogs in Cars , then this second collection will leaving you just as happy, if not more so. The beach is a universal symbol of pleasure, and to share it with a four-legged friend is joy personified. Here are dog racing one another, dogs crouching in wait for a ball to be tossed, dogs sniffing at one another. There are moments of peace in these shots as well, and the balance of action and stillness make this collection one that will appeal for years to come.
