Photo shoot at the park this weekend

looking for trouble, originally uploaded by phaird.
So this is my attempt of crowd sourcing for support on a photo project. I'm planning on doing a photo shoot at the Acton dog park this weekend and I wanted to let you know. I'd love it if you could help out and have your dog included in the photo. I'm planning on creating a photo of all the dogs running down the hill and then collage them all into one photo. I'm hoping I can get a bunch of dogs so it looks really packed. Should be fun and won't take much time.

Happy New Year Park Fans

Pano of snowy park, originally uploaded by phaird.
So the new year is here and my mind is racing about photography projects I want to be doing.

I was super excited to get to the park this past weekend. I've missed out for the past few weeks because of the holidays and family stuff. Sunday, Toby and I made it to the park again but it didn't last. Toby wasn't as excited as I was and he heard gun shots from the gun club down the road. He gets so upset and I've been trying to help him through it but my visit to the park wasn't longer then 5 minutes. I had him on a leash so he wouldn't run off but the other dogs were coming around, sensing his fears, and Toby got agressive with the other dogs. It makes it hard to hang out and talk if my dog keeps getting in fights. I don't want to be "that guy" at the park with the uncontrollable dog but I know he can like going to the park too. It's really hard to deal with.
So anyway, on the way out of the park, I took 2 photos, stitched them together and got this fun pano. What do you think?
Hope everyone had a great new year and I hope to get more involved with everyone at the park this year. Also, if you didn't know, there is a Facebook page just for this park.  If you want to keep up with others who come to the Great Hills Park in S. Acton, check it out.
