I got an email I was sleeping on the job since I started the last one so here we go.
Okay all lets see those fuzzy critters we love and adore, BW, Color doesn't matter just as long as its a pet any pet.
My daughter Felicia took this with the D50. One is Birdie our Ring Neck Dove and the other is Baby our loyal 12 year old dog who actually gets along with our bird. It seems they take turns using the couch.
I think I messed up the colors in photoshop, not as vibrant after the transfer from lightroom. I might need to update my edition of photoshop as it always tells me there is an unmatching "embeded color profile".
Brandon, is the brown one in the background a Shiba or Akita? It looks very much like mine, which has a "very" curly tail onto his back, white chest, belly and thigh fur, extremly smart and protective and doesn't like strangers or other dogs... but we love him!!! I'd love to post photos of him but unfortunately none were taken with a Nikon... because my Coolpix died and just ordered the D40x...
Anyway, thanks for sharing, beautiful dogs! We never really sure Yoi is a Shiba or Akita because we bought him for $30 outside a Korean farmers market here in Atlanta and the seller only speaks limited English. Although our vet thinks he's more Shiba.
He "talks" to us about what he wants and will go to different members of the family for different requests. My is to take him out and does his thing... He will pull on my wife's sleeve to the cookie jar for his treat. Hope the link works.
Is the brown one in the background a Shiba or Akita? It looks just like mine, which is a mixed of one of them with don't-know-what. Mine has a "very" curly tail rolls up to his back with white chest, belly and hip fur. Extremly smart and protective, doesn't like strangers and chase anything that moves, and runs really fast!!! Even caught a bird once!
I'd love to post his picture but I don't think I can for not being a paid member, and photos of him were not taken with Nikon gears since my Coolpix died and just ordered my D40x...
If you mean mine, baby is pampered she was a rescue almost beat to death and thrown out in a bag when she was a puppy we got her she was about 4 months old. She is now 12 years old a more loyal friend I could not ask for. Jim
One more if I may.. This is my Green Cheek Conure. As you can see by the number "91" it is one of the first pictures I took with my new D50. This picture is a crop of the original which included the cage and part of the room. http://www.viscountrecords.com/photography/gallery/slides/DSC0091.html>
Yup, it was yours I was referring to. I neglected to post my replies with quotes.
Glad to hear you were able to give an abused dog a chance at the good life. Its hard to understand how a person can treat a dog so poorly and still sleep at night.
My mutt is also a rescue. She was turned over to me by the local police department subsequent to a drug lab bust. The puke had apparently acquired her to use as a guard dog. She was relegated to an outdoor cable and had never been indoors. No preventative vaccinations, tail broken at three points, and inundated with ectoparasites. A week at the vet office, two surgeries, numerous vaccinations, and $750 later, my 'free' dog came home! Planned to adopt her out through my network but she imprinted on me too hard to place elsewhere.
And now we get to make pretty pictures of our formerly wayward canine kids!
BTW, mine is a Black Lab/Rottweilor/Border Collie mix. How's that for a confused pooch
I had this posted on a different thread..but thought I would post it here as well..... "Ellie the Hunter" D40 Exposure: 0.003 sec (1/320) Aperture: f/5.6 Focal Length: 175 mm ISO Speed: 800 Exposure Bias: 0/6 EV ISO Speed: 800
I've really enjoyed looking at everyone's pictures. Many thanks... and to Jim for organising. Is there a list of themes that have come up before so as not to repeat anything too recent? I'm tempted to say 'coast' but then I live 2 mins from the sea in the UK. Might be a problem for Nikonians in the middle of the States etc!
We have 4 dogs...here is one, Dakota. She was on "death row" at the local animal shelter and I found her just in time! She is very camera shy and it's hard to get her to hold still, but the look on her face tells you about her sweet spirit. D40 , 18-55mm
