    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    I got a call at work last week from the Mrs saying that she stopped by the MSPCA ,dog shelter, where we adopted our 2 cocker spaniels & there was a 14 yr old CS who's owner died & no one would take her. She was in a cage next to a Pitbull & and some other barking Cujo mishoogenna & was petrified! Well i knew what this meant.....! So i present to you the newest member of our family......14 year old Wendy, aka, old lady,old buzzard, Wendell, Mrs. Magoo...etc..

    Looks cold. Nice detail on that second one with that very narrow DOF.

    Dang, not only are you guys prolific but you're good too!

    Steve I don't dare let my wife see this story, touching as it is. Just had to put our buddy of a lifetime (Mocha) down a little over a year ago, and we're still getting over it. Very nice thing to do and great photos of the troops.

    Thanks Rob. Sorry about Mocha. They are family to us. We had to put our old buddy Bo Bo down last summer & i still miss him dearly. My wife thinks Bo's spirit is inside of Wendy cause she's running around like a Nut at night b4 bedtime which is what Bo used to do! Not bad for a hundred year old dog!

    Steve, that's a beautiful thing to adopt an old companion like Wendy and give her shelter, care and love for her latter years.
    She's lucky, and so are you.

    I agree. Good on ya.

    We have two little troublemakers here. An 8-year-old Yorkie, and an almost 16 year-old toy poodle. The poodle is almost completely blind and deaf, and has bad shoulders, but we love him. He still has some quality of life, so we're hoping he'll be ok a little longer. We rescued him from an abusive situation when he was a year old, and he stole Mimi's heart the first day. (Funny, because we'd always had big dogs, i.e, Mimi's 4 Labs and a Golden Retriever, which preceded the poodle.) When the poodle goes, I'm more worried about the Yorkie than anyone. He's absolutely devoted to the poodle, and really looks out for him now that he's failing. I suspect his morning will exceed all of ours, even though it well be considerable all around.

    That's great you picked up the ol gal!! I can't walk into a shelter cause I'd have about 27 dogs. Right now, it's just our two whippets Sesame and Miso.

    Tim: Two more nice shots from the North Woods. It must smell great out there with the new sawn.

    Jason: Good looking dogs! And the bride's OK too. Nice isolating light and shadow on that one.

    Cheers.

    I had to go look in my ODP (Obligatory Dog Photos) folder (also have an OCP). The second photo was our last dog. Connal was adopted out to a farm 26 years ago when our daughter was born. Probably time to get another dog (or three). Cheers.

    1. D300; 85mm f/1.4; 1/250s @ f/1.4; ISO 250


    2. Nikkormat (26 years ago) (50mm?)

    You guys are killing me with talk of dogs passing or remembered. I can't face it. Maggie is 12 and the world will be different without her. This is from a few years ago.

    Steve, splendid fireworks. looks like "snowworks" of some kind btw Matt is right, the chromatic contrast is spot on.


    One small marginal comment if i may: whether you would print it (and it definitely deserves a nice one), i'd probably take the five minutes needed to clone out the wires on the lower right part... (and perharps altogether the tiny distracting white thingy at the bottom, and finally burn down the pole left of the flag's)


    Simply because all the rest is plain spectacular.

    Yesterday my niece (everyone calls her "Bug") celebrated her 15th birthday by leading her Jr. High basketball team to victory 36 to 31 over one of their arch rivals. She's the starting point guard. Ironically, she scored 15 points.

    D3 85/1.4 @2.2 ISO 2500 (BTW, lighting was terrible, and getting good WB a nightmare!)

    Love the shots!! Great stuff.
