Blurry Animals of the Day

These are very poorly shot photos, but I like the subject matter so much that damn it, out they go. The bull is behind the tapas counter at Despana, a beautiful Spanish grocery store on Broome (between Lafayette & Cleveland) & he's pretty magnificent. The pig is trapped behind bars on 9th Street, near the canal, in the window of a store that seems to have closed down. He looks fairly sanguine though, considering his tenuous (& frankly rather shabby) housing situation, and his long empty days spent gazing at an endless succession of F trains passing overhead. I'd adopt him in a heartbeat.
