They look so animated. What are they talking about?
Today's post for "On the Pavement" also includes animal art.

You may think I found this beautiful example of ruminant art out in the woods somewhere, but actually, the deer and her fawn can be found inside the traffic circle at SW Simpson Drive and SW Century Avenue (aka 14th Street).

I think everyone takes this photo, and here is my contribution. It was an incredibly beautiful day - perfect temperature, a lovely walk. It was also my birthday, which made the walk with my honey and the visit extra special.
The turtle-design zipper bag that I bought from an Indian market near Tucson often serves as a travelling briefcase. It has no pockets, but it makes up for it by the smile it puts on my face. Here it sits at my feet on a plane trip to Mexico.

It's decorative, but I don't know why they do it. I saw horses at St-Michel in Paris a few years ago with the same pattern. They were also on parade. In the second case, it seemed as though they were escorting some dignitary. On October 19, 2008, they were part of a police exibition with all sorts of interactive events taking place.

I love the ancient Egyptian portrayal of animals. What I read somewhere is that because the Egyptians didn't have the rigid restrictions for portraying animals that they did for portraying humans, the animals are depicted more realistically, relying on the artist's perceptions rather than on the learned conventions for human forms. For this reason, they have a particular charm and realism. I love what the dim lighting did for this photo.

Initially, I took the photo because I liked the festive banners on this upstairs window. When I looked at the photo, I really liked the colors all around it, too - and the reflection.
