One of the sheer pleasures of watching Bowpi run…
… is the way she turns corners.
These pictures don’t do justice to the action, but considering that they were taken in succession at 1/3200 second on burst mode, I guess you get some hint.
Not sure how she’d pull it off if she was after a mechanical lure or hurdling over obstacles.
She seems more inspired to bust out her fancy maneuvers when there’s a live companion and she’s in the lead!
One of my favorite Chinese characters is this:
… or, as I like to think of it, the violent rush of wind (風) from a pack of dogs (犬 –> 猋) galloping past. Or perhaps cycloning around you.
Okay, I know two dogs is just a pair, not a pack… but they’re “windy” enough for me!
In contemporary usage, this term has come to refer to dragracers on public streets (飆車族), a phenomenon that took off in Taiwan in the mid 1980s.
