It would have been cute, but the dolphin looks kind of mad! I guess I would be too if I were held like that! ;)

I think it's charming. But I see what Hilda's saying, like a kid pulling a dog's tail.

Oh, wait. It say Puto. Nevermind.

You know, it's really not fair. I know PV and the light is so beautiful it makes everything look godlike--even buses.

Tash, your little imp is a sight. I love reading all those Italian words with their vowels and sing song sounds, but then again, I like any kind of Italian connection.
I recently found this link about a NY Times piece on Edward Weston's photographs of the California coast and thought you might like to see it.
