B/W and Ringo

     This week I am not posting for "Weekend in Black and White" - there are just too many priorities "pulling on my leg" or "tapping me on my shoulder." You are welcome to visit the site by clicking on the icon in the side bar. Excellent photography.
     Instead, I am posting a portrait taken of me with my mother (original in b/w, circa no doubt 1948 since I was born August 1947) and a current iPhone4 pic of Ringo, my youngest daughter's family dog who is more than likely fighting a terminal growth. Ringo sits on their front porch guarding their home with his paws crossed. A beautiful pet she has grown with for over ten years.

Wonderful pictures! I once had a beloved dog "Alex" who always laid with his front arms crossed in the same manner! He was a sweet soul! Have a great weekend!

Such a beautiful portrait! And the photo of Ringo makes me miss my pup! He was a husky/lab mix :)
