Wisdom Wears a Beard

(ISO 400, 1/60, f4.5, natural light)

When I think of Wisdom, I think of an old man with a beard (or an owl). Since I don't have any old men with beards at my disposal, I settled for my bearded Jack Russell Terrier. (Can you see his beard? People tell me he has one, but I see him so often, I can't tell!) Not only is he bearded. He is surely a wise old friend.

I would have loved to put a frame around this like I've seen some of you do. Can anyone tell me how to do that? Is it done in Elements, regular Photoshop, Picasa or on Blogger? Thanks.

what a sweet dog!!
I love that he is looking longingly at something or other....almost like a wistful old man with a beard. :)

Yeah.. the frame question is a good one. I don't know how to do that either.

Oh how CUTE!!!!! (me getting dog-envy... sure love em). This picture is awesome, love the pose, he's so WISE and KNOWLEDGEABLE (or maybe he looking at a treat nearby and willing it into his mouth?) either way, it's a great picture! I love the crop too!

i also want to know the answer to the framing question!!

I love the beard! I'm impressed you got him to pose so well. Most terriers I know are all over the place. He must really be wise! Fun pic!

I was totally thinking wise=something with a beard too! I'm glad you found something! I love how your pooch is staring off as if deep in thought.

He does look very wise gazing off into the distance. I'm picturing it with the frame and I think it would be really cool. Sorry I can't help- try one of those photoshop tutorial websites. I'm sure they've got something.

nice shot reminds me of Wish Bone! I like how you captured him looking off, like Teryn said.
