Been a long couple of days after returning. Bo the Wonder Dog is failing. His right hip in particular giving trouble. Walks some but sometimes gives out. So after spending the morning saying my good byes.... the vet has similar issues with her newfoundland. She gave us daily pain pills for arthritis. Said should help after 3 days. She recommended light 5 to 10 minute walk daily. Said he might go a few more weeks or possibly longer. Just have to try.

Anyone figure out how to reduce ads on desktop.
Sorry to hear that bro.

Worse news tonight. It's going to be over. Pain doesn't seem to be issue but he couldn't walk tonight. I had hernia OP last year and I'm picking up Bo at 70 lbs taking him off porch. Sit him down and he can't get hips going. He pees and then I pick him back up and put him on porch. After Mrs BT and I finish crying, we have to admit it's not a life.
Oh no.

Bro Dick, being a proffessional photographer, you can't afford to have a pixelated avatar; the new plateform can handle 400x400 pixels avatars, so it's time to put a nice one. Speaking of photos, I will be receiving my new camera by the end of the week, a friend bought it for me from another country as it's not widely available and not easily found in stores, and I don't like buying stuff online, especially tech equipment. After doing a lot of research, it's the only one that really fits my style; can't wait to see it in the metal

Actually lighting it right makes some difference. All you need is two phones. One acting as a light source with the flashlight turned on, the other phone taking the photo itself.

Here's what I do in a pinch - place a piece of paper towel in front of the phone's flashlight to act as a diffuser, light the subject at around 45° (as a starting point, experiment with the angle) at the subject, then photograph with the other phone. Altering the distance between the paper towel and the flashlight changes the effect as well.

You'd be surprised how different the photo could look with diffused, angled lighting.

Here's a sample, I used three phones here - two acting as light sources to illuminate the front and the back the the photo subject, and one for taking the photo.
