I'm sorry, but my god that dog looks evil. =P
Well, I've been curious about photography ever since the beginning of high school (7 years ago now?) and looking through all 38 pages of this thread has pushed me over the edge.
I think I'm going to be seeing a Nikon D40 in my future. What with my current asperations (Army Helicopter Pilot) I'm thinking I'll have plenty to shoot. =P
Oh, a quick thing: It was interesting watching Mugan23 advance in his level of ability photowise in such a short time. Definately come a long way! Good work!
