    Here's what happens when you let a 3 year old hold your camera. Unfortunately I left the motor-drive on, so I ended up with 6 of these!

    If it were more in focus it would've been a great shot. Just remind next time "arm's length"! :D

    Bailey's introduction to Barnstable Harbor..

    Bailey is a Leader Dog in training from East Tennessee. He is being trained by Optiboarder
    Roy Ferguson. On a recent trip to Cape Cod I attempted to round out his education by fixing him up with a couple loose women. That picture will follow. His introduction to salt water was photographed by the father of the floozie's. It was great to see the lad having fun!

    Speaking of dogs

    My wife has taken a liking to dressing ours for seasonal/holiday shots (don't tell PETA). :D

    Great pics, Harry! The flower pic reminds me of the many "antler" pics we have of my nephew's dog. We had to hold her for the pic or she would tear the antlers to smithereens!

    Bailey and the Ladies were just resting..

    after playing with the tennis ball for an hour or so before their swim and go fetch antics. Bailey was 100% puppy during the entire time. Roy gave us all a remarkable demonstration. He put the "leader jersey" on Bailey and told him he was now working. Roy proceeded to walk back and forth in front of the other 2 dogs. Bailey never left his side or broke stride, even when the other 2 dogs tried to play with Bailey. The tennis ball in the picture was thrown in front of Bailey while he was walking with Roy. Bear in mind this was the same ball he had been chasing all morning. Bailey never deviated from his path with Roy or paid any attention to the ball. He is really something special.

    Last week I told my wife she would bond with Bailey even though she would be seeing him for less than 4 waking hours during the weekend.(She is a nurse and working 2 12 hour shifts over the weekend)We had to leave early in the morning to get to a meeting in Providence and Bailey thought it would be a good idea to say goodbye to Sue by going in and waking her up for that purpose. She actually got up laughing. She was sad to see him go as was I. The sadness, however, is tempered by the knowledge that Bailey will be someones bridge to independence.

    This is fun, everyone takes such great photos.
    I like to do a little Macrophotography sometimes.
    This is a Dragonfly that likes cruisin' his territory around the backyard clothesline.

    Smilie Thank you

    Thank you all for the great comments.
    It encourages me to post one more.
    I took this shot this past Wednesday, this guy being too big for the lizards to eat was able to just relax on the Hibiscus and enjoy the Florida sunshine.

    Thank you Steve!
    I used a Nikon F3HP with a 55mm Nikkor Micro Lens.
    My wife and I take pictures together all the time and have a "few shots" we can be proud of. We get alot of enjoyment out of it and like the reactions we get from people viewing our photos.

    Thank you all for your compliments.
    :cheers:

    Here are two pictures of the Cape May, NJ, Delaware Bay . These were taken at the same spot on the bay and about the same time of night, 2 weeks apart.

    One more and I am done.(this is fun) This is my hometown, Bethlehem,PA. Although there is a picture of the steel home office, the steel no longer exists. They went from a high of 30,000 employees in Bethlehem to ZERO!
