The most photographed dog in Georgia

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

The most photographed dog in Georgia

Well, that's our claim anyway.
I was out last weekend taking shots of a lake near home and Sally was being very patient and waiting for me.
She looked so cute that I just had to rattle off a few of her. Of course, these photos turned out far better than the ones I had gone there to take!

I have to admit to some poetic license here. The wild flowers were transported from half a mile away and arranged. Sometimes you have to give mother nature a little hand ;-).

Great pic, Alan! Looks good enough to sell as a greetings card.

Just lovely Alan.

I'm always looking for cards with dogs and cats on, and there's definitely a shortage of them. You should send it to Hallmark.

Thanks everyone. This is a rare one that I'm happy with myself :D .

I've been thinking lately about trying to make some money with my camera. Pet portraiture was one of the things I'd been considering.

I think we also have a Pic of the Week?

Great work, as usual, Alan! Fine looking beasty as well. Much more companionable and picturesque on a country walk than a .357 Magnum... :oops:

Seriously, if there's a market for animal portraits you'll definately find a niche in it. Skill and sensitivity; what more do you need? Other than leads...
