Round Robin Challenge: (People and) Dogs at Play

For this week's Round Robin Photo Challenge: Play, I asked to see someone playing, based on any definition of the word "play" you care to photograph. I've been taking the dogs for long walks recently, in city parks and around the neighborhood; so I ended up with pictures of dogs playing in the park. Oh, and people, but they weren't as interesting to photograph!

Dogs first, at Miko's Corner Playground in Reid Park:

I submit to you that the dogs are having more fund than the people in my other two photos, taken at Udall Park:

In case you can't tell, the tiny olive drab figure behind the shopping cart is the operator of the kite. As for the soccer players, well, I don't recall hearing many screams of delight. Okay, I'm probably not being fair. I've never been a dog, and I've never been on a soccer team that played in a park at dusk. Who am I to judge? But the dogs' photos are definitely better than the human ones!

Now let's check out how other Robins captured examples of play:

Over here, dogs have to be leash when in public area, failure to do so will result being fined a few hundred dollars!
