Know what you mean Mark, just think soon we will all be dealing with too many exotic animals left loose . florida is already seeing more and more exotic animals being release into the everglades.

you should have taken Lenny home, I don't think I would have been able to leave there knowing what you knew...this is such a sad, all too common image, that poor dogs expression is haunting, as if he knows what his future holds.

Mark, your images lately are dealing with very difficult, darker subjects.

And Mark, photographically speaking, your images are raising the bar higher and higher, in addition to the thought-provoking, emotive subject matter...

I don't think any of us here will be content with snap shots...of course, the purpose of this particular forum is to prompt deeper involvement with our photography, and we - well, speaking for myself at least - need strong examples to give me something to strive toward...

Honestly, thanks (to everyone) for that...

Another emotional subject. I will think positively and hope he found a new home at the 11th hour.

Hi Norm,

Thanks for the comment. I remember hearing about that exotic animal owner on the news. There are a lot of sad situations involving animals. I also saw where people have let their pet pythons loose in the Everglades and they are eating everything and anything.

Hi Travis,

Thanks for your thoughtful response. I know these last few entries have been a bit depressing, but I'm trying to bring some emotion to the photos. I'm already looking forward to trying something humorous next week.

Thanks very much Jerry,

The extra time you put into your detailed responses is not going un-noticed. The descriptive way you share your thoughts gives each of us a little food for thought concerning our images. You are very kind to take the time to do this.

Thank you Barbara,

I will also hope for the same. It's a cruel world in so many ways. I wanted to get a good emotional shot for the WA, but after I left this place I was not the same as before I went in.

Mark,
Well done and a very sad fate. I hate to see animals in this situation.

Thank you Roberta. It is a very sad reality that these animals are discarded as they are. I'm glad that my daughter volunteers for a local pet adoption service on Saturdays.

Thanks for commenting Mado. It is so sad, and the image makes me uncomfortable too.

Thanks Klaus. It's too bad that they have to suffer because of our mismanagement.
