I can hardly believe how pretty they are

Well I've had a rather difficult two weeks. I had a physics test, followed by two anthropology papers and a microbiology test. I haven't done any new painting. In fact I haven't really accomplished much of anything except some studying.

Except some photography! On Sunday, it was a lovely lovey day and we took the boys to Riis park. Its off season and the park was nearly empty, so we let them have the whole field to themselves to stretch those skinny legs. I convinced my stepdad to bring his falcy SLR camera - its a Nikon D70 - and he let me play with it. I got a couple of pictures that are absolutely phenomenal. Makes me want to borrow that camera a bit more permanently...

These are WONDERFUL shots of your dogs! And THEY are very beautiful!

My hubby and I have two regular sized greyhounds (both ex-racers) . . . I have pics of them on some of my earlier blogs, although nothing as spectacular as your photos!

Fantastic photos of beautiful dogs!
Although I'm a die-hard Border Collie fan, I think IGs and Greyhounds are wonderful dogs - so graceful and lovely :)

WOW -- Those are AMAZING photos, and your dogs are gorgeous! Makes me want to run out and buy that camera.

Thanks for sharing! :)

Gorgeous shots - especially the airborne ones! Maybe you should consider selling prints at your Etsy store? Or doing a couple of non-shell paintings (I'm thinking that the full-out leaping profile might lend itself to a rectangle more than the curved shell...)
Definitely borrow that camera more often!
