    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.

    picture was taken by a guy from tiawan who had 2 cameras....... you'd think he could frame a F100/ 50F1.8?
    Looks like he had it framed pretty well but you guys kept stand in front of him. 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 ;)

    How very true! Now I've got to get out the Coolpix and the tripod...

    Now, do I take them in the shower, the bathtub, the bedroom...

    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.

    Let me just say, "Wow!" Great shots of a lovely lady.

    I like these threads. It's great being able to put a face to the name.

    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.
