Yes, it’s a watermelon bus stop. No, I don’t know why someone designed a watermelon bus stop, but I think it’s pretty cool nonetheless, don’t you?

There’s not much I can say about this picture. It’s just a beautiful image that speaks for itself.

FEATURED PHOTO: SEEING GREEN & SNOOP (THE) DOG

December 9th, 2009 by The Watermelon Guy

I like the photo above because it reminds me of the watermelons at my local farmers’ market. And I like the photo below because it’s just funny. It’s a picture of Snoop, the photographer’s Rottweiler letting everyone know whose watermelon that is. The photo is entitled “Happiness,” implying that Snoop is smiling, but I’m not so sure if that’s a toothy grin or a don’t-even-think-about-it snarl. Either way, that watermelon is all his. A big thanks to Rob Greenleaf for letting me use this photo!

THE MYSTERIOUS BLUE WATERMELON (PART 2)

October 20th, 2009 by The Watermelon Guy

Last week, I wrote about my search for a blue watermelon, based on a reader question. Although the search was fruitless (yielding only one suspiciously doctored looking photo), I did also manage to find the striking photo above. Unlike the photo from the previous entry, this one is on-the-record as being doctored. What a shame.

FEATURED PHOTO AND PET: BEAUTIFUL WEDGES AND ROMEO THE DOG

August 20th, 2009 by The Watermelon Guy

I’m big on watermelon images as my computer wallpaper. While everyone else has photos of family pets or their favorite sports team, I’m displaying images of juicy Desert Kings and Royal Jubilees. Oh well, to each his own. The image above is my current wallpaper. Has been for about two weeks now. I find it somewhat mesmerizing. Check this website to get a large version for yourself.

As you might have already known, humans aren’t the only ones who love watermelon. All sorts of animals love it too, including (and perhaps especially) dogs. Below is a shot of a fella named Romeo. As you can see, Romeo loves his watermelon and I’m guessing he really loves his generous owner too! Judging by how many photos there are online of dogs chowing down on watermelon, it seems like dogs really like it. Does anyone else have a dog that eats watermelon?
