    By the way, didn't ANYBODY catch my 'special' effect?

    Ray

    I noticed that right away.

    How'd you do that?

    Nah. I'm a scottish/uk mix. Although, I can understand the confusion.

    How do you like that dog though?!? She's a one year old English Mastiff. Still has another 60 or 70 lbs to go.

    Looks like he had it framed pretty well but you guys kept stand in front of him. :D If you'd just stepped back a bit....

    AH that would explain why HER head is not wider ;)

    females have thinner skulls usually and as they age their(mastiff types) heads get wider and skin loosens up :)

    BTW..... mastiff types STOP growing at around 2.5 years.... SHHHHH I have owned neos, bandogges, tosas, filas and LOVE mastiff types :)

    english mastiffs are HUGE LAP DOGS ;)

    Ah, and I found another self-portrait of the wife and myself in Santa Barbara. Thought I had lost this one.

    Ray

    I love the special effect in the first shot. Great shot of you and the wife! You two look so happy. Wonderful shot.

    I usually do. Looking at the photo's of me and Dawn, I thought (for the hundredth time), "I am NOT photogenic!" I do not take a good portrait. Now if I had Rick's good looks, it'd be a different matter.

    So rest easy Paul, I intend to remain behind the camera as much as possible!

    Hope I didn't give you nightmares.
