Peeping Pets.

Scrolling through the photographs featured in "Tails from the Fishbowl," a book of portraits by San Diego photographer Rachel Bellinsky, is enough to make me yearn for a pet. Snapped on her daily walks with her own dog, Cooper, Bellinsky's photos of animals perched in front of windows are oddly, strikingly poignant. Just look at these faces.


I especially love this one. Those eyes!


Oh, and speaking of animals, my heart skipped a beat when I saw Leah Goren's cat-print dress among the new arrivals at Anthropologie this week. (I'm a huge fan of her work and blogged about a slightly different version of the dress a few months ago, here.) I rarely make impulse buys, but I have to have it. This polar bear print is pretty darn cute, as well.

Love the collection of pets in window photos. It is strangely enchanting. Also approve of the catprint dress 100%

Those photos are so cute!!!
I'm a huge fan of Leah Goren too. Have three of her tops! I would've loved her popular cat print dress too but it sold out before I could order one. :(

Pets peeking through windows is definitely one of my favorite things. My dog used to sit on an end table outside our large bay window at home and wait for people to come home.

Nothing better than coming home to a furry friend!

Aw, these are adorable shots!

I love Leah Goren too! I have a mushroom top that she did! Get it!! I want the polar bear!

Aww, I LOVE those photos! I have one similar that I posted on my blog a month or two ago. Just a random Baltimore dog looking out the door at me. :) I think animals are my favorite subjects... their expressions say a lot. And that dress? Yeah, buy it.

Adorable! I love the photos, especially the cats--and I'm coveting that cat-print dress, too, now!

haha! aww, these images remind me of our little skippy who always is peeking out the window. sometimes i think he's trying to be sneaky, but in actuality i can see his head sticking out from behind our curtain a mile away!

& that dress is on my wish list too...

Oh gosh, those faces! They are so cute and yet they break my heart a little bit.

And I think that dress would be such an investment. I love the cut, that pleat in the front, and you can wear different colored tights and a sweater/long-sleeved shirt underneath for fall and winter!

Thanks for the encouragement, guys - I think I really am going to get it! :)

I totally approve of a dress with polar bears on it, and if anyone can pull it off, it's you.

cat dress is purrfect...sorry had to do it! i love seeing all those sweet faces in the windows! our little furbaby often waits in the window for when we return. so sweet.

Shoko said...

Brianna, aw, thank you!

Deirdre, I love the term "furbaby." So, so cute.

Lisa Sperling said...

Aw - how very sweet! I too would love to have a pet (preferably a dog :)) And I love the cat print dress! (oooh, Anthropologie!!!)

Cuuuute! I always wonder what animals are thinking while they're gazing out the window. I want a pet so badly...but our building doesn't allow them, and even if we moved to a pet friendly space, we don't have the money. Le sigh...someday.
