Trying something New!

Meet "Portillo" and "Elvis", retired racing greyhounds from Ireland! When Elvis "was an only child" I said I'd love to look after him if our friends had to be out of town. Meanwhile, they took in Portillo and we took in both! They're gorgeous and loving, gentle dogs, but they do take up a lot of space inside the house! Cats, for us here, are a better choice, but this is a nice experiment and we'll enjoy our time with them.

The Photo Challenge: How to photograph a Brindle dog against the matching autumn leaves! I'll see if I can convince him to lie amongst them as he'll practically disappear!
Sounds like fun

I love greyhounds...They are such docile dogs and terrific athletes.

Looks like Ken is enjoying the dog sitting! I bet they are loving every moment! I think you are right about Elvis disappearing into the leaves!

Great camouflage!

you should do that laying down photo, there are some great joke ones that float about and this could rival them well :)

They really blend in with the leaves.

A lot of long legs there.

Enjoy your time with the dogs. In 2 years, there will be 8000 retired dogs available in Florida. 🤔

@casablanca It's a preset I never used before, but the ground is so covered with leaves, and Elvis blended in, so I was looking for anything to make him stand out away from that yellow riot of colour!
