Dogs, Dogs, and More Dogs! -- A Tribute to Brewster and Buffy

A photographic log of my German Shepherd Dogs, Brewster and Buffy.

Name:
Location: Washington State

I am Retired from the US Army.
My name is not important. What I do is not important. I am just a guy with a camera. I enjoy taking pictures and looking at and saving pictures others have taken.
I am a student of photography. Not in a formal sense, but in the sense that as I take more pictures and view other pictures, I may learn from each.
As I grow more comfortable here, I hope to show those pictures I have taken. I hope to learn by those pictures I have viewed from others.
Current Gear:
My Cameras: Nikon D300 / D50
My Lenses: Tamron 28-300 (VC) F1:3.5-6.3 XR Di w/Rodenstock Digtal UV Filter; Tamron 90 F2.8 Di 1:1 Macro; Nikkor 28-80 F1:3.3-5.6; Nikkor 70-300 F1:4-5.6
Flash: Metz 58 AF-1 N digital

Member: Nikonians, My most important photographic investment, after the camera.

Playing with Picasa

I downloaded Picasa 2 and was doing some playing around with it. It's not a bad way of organizing photos.

There is an option of making a collage of photos. I learned that "Less is More" when doing this. Using more than 3 pictures may have undesireable results if one uses the "Picture Pile" option.

Here is a picture of Brewster with is toy GSD, both relaxing on Brewster's new bed. I've also added a couple of art pieces to complete the collage. All-in-all not a bad look.

Furry bearer of unconditional love, affection, companionship - and a rocket-powered babe magnet to boot.Rearing a dog is like rearing a kid. Some dog owners PREFER to rear dogs than kids. But rearing & caring a dog take up a lot of your time.

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
