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

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

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.

My Cameras: Nikon D300 / D50

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.
