It’s impossible not to smile at these ridiculously cute faces hanging out of car windows. Created by LA-based photographer Lara Jo Regan, Dogs in Cars features all kinds of canines enthusiastically leaning into the wind with tongues lapping and a cool breeze in their fur. The unique pet portraits convey the animals’ general sense of happiness through enthusiastic, attentive poses and open-mouthed expressions.
“I usually try to come up with ideas that are somewhat odd and complex to insure no one else is doing the same thing. But as an owner of three dogs living in the Los Angeles car culture, the idea was just staring me in the face. Most dogs become downright delirious over a car ride, and I wanted to capture this amazing primal energy in photographs beyond what I’d seen before,” explains Regan.
If you are a dog lover, you may enjoy having the adorable series hanging on your wall as a 2014 wall calendar in the coming year.
