A Man and his Dog

My brother-in-law has a new camera and from this picture he obviously will let my sister Myrna use it. Here is Ray on the couch with his dog buddy Ernie. He selected a Cannon and that was probably the second most numerous camera at our digital Photo class. They make good equipment and great lenses. I am looking forward to seeing many new photos this coming year.
I also hope that my sister recovers her health and they can take at least one trip to someplace that doesn't look like what I see out of my window. We both live in the transition zone between the tall grass prairie and the hardwood forests. We share a passion for birds and wildlife (you know, deer, raccoons and stuff) and photography.
Does it look like that dog is smiling?
