OK, today I left my normal market area of Georgetown and Cleveland Park to explore what looked like an interesting commercial building in an area that I expect might be Takoma Park waiting to happen. Well, maybe.
I located the building with a little help from my car's fancy navigation system. I went to take some photos for my client (he's looking for something a little different) and figured this was way too funky for him. I got pictures of the building, the junk yard across the street, and the warehouse next door.
Then I spotted him.
Oh! No! It's an off-leash - what? Pit bull!
Crap! I'm more than half a block from my car.
They say that animals can sense fear, and as hard as I tried to stay calm, I was putting out huge quantities of fear juice. If this animal was as scary as he looked, I might be maimed if I was lucky. And there was not another human in sight, even at the junk yard!
Then he started to walk my way, and I realized that this was a really old geezer doggy. He was pretty bony and walking like he was totally arthritic. He probably wasn't going to eat me. I may live through the day!
Still, I walked at a pretty fast clip toward the car and hopped in.
And I took this picture from the safety of my front seat! Phew!
