This is a still life of my Lenox fine china Greyhounds statuette pair called “Jeweled Devotion.” They are ivory white with gold plated collars, but I changed it to black and white in Picasa3. I am a strong advocate for the welfare and adoption of racing Greyhounds. I dedicate this to all those who promote adoption of pets, especially my favorites, the Greyhounds, and especially to Christine Johnson, head of Greyhounds Rescue & Rehabilitation in Cross River, NY, who brought me my late dear sweet Abby Rose over ten years ago!

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Dot, Exquisite, love the tones and reflections!

  • Thank you so much, Glenn. I don’t have all the self-confidence in the world, so it’s great to hear such a positive reaction to this image. I really appreciate it a lot!

    I am so envious!! It’s a wonderful capture of them.

  • Nothing to envy, Christina. They’re just statues. Now, if they were real greyhounds I’d be in heaven. They’re my favorite breed, but allergies keep me from getting one these days. Thanks so much for your kind words.
