Recent Galleries

New - Miscellaneous Subjects : Photos of subjects that don't fit any of the specialized categories for recent uploads.

Photos will stay here until I accumulate enough new ones or until I'm tired of seeing them here, and then be transferred to their permanent home galleries.  Current practice is for me to load photos into their final homes, and collect them back to my 'Recent Uploads' galleries.
Remember, gallery comments left here may refer to pictures or groups of pictures that no longer appear in the gallery.  Comments to individual photos stay with the photos, and will always appear in the 'original' gallery even when the virtual images have been removed from this gallery.

Sights of the Season - Christmas miscellany : Originally this gallery was an oleo of shots taken at various locales during the 2008 Christmas season.  I've decided to expand it to contain miscellaneous shots of indoor decorations.  I've moved the shots outdoor decorations and seasonal sights, like holly, to a separate gallery.  Likewise, closeups of single tree ornaments or a few ornaments together have been moved out to the specialized gallery for that subject.

Christmas Decorations - tree ornaments : This is a gallery that celebrates the incredible variety of decorations that one can place on Christmas trees.  The pictures are primarily closeups of single ornaments, or even just details of ornaments.

Dailies - Top Posts by Rank : These are my current highest ranked posts to the DailyPhotos community for the calendar years 2013 and 2014.  I'm arbitrarily limiting the collection to the ones that ranked 1-6 at the end of the day on which they were posted.  They are sorted by order of upload, not by rank.  I didn't start making a note of final rank until late March, so my selections from the period January - March are conservative, and based mainly on memory and partly on number of 1st day comments.  In some cases these first day rankings vary significantly from their current relative ranks in my  'Popular Photos' collection, as prepared by smugmug.

For a slightly different set of Top Posts, based on number of first day views, see http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Dailies/DailyPhotos-Collections/2013-My-Top-Posts-by-Hits/29962350_mvx98b

Dailies -Top Posts by 1st Day Views : Because relatively few of the hits or views of any given post to the DP community come from the people who leave comments, and because there sometimes is relatively low correlation between the number of comments and the number of views, I decided to make a separate collection based on the number of views on the first day of posting.  I have an arbitrary cutoff limit, which may shift as time goes on, so some pictures may get deleted from this collection as the year progresses, just to keep the total number of pictures in this gallery relatively low.

For a slightly different set of Top Posts, based on rank at the end of the day (comment and green/red thumb driven), see http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Dailies/DailyPhotos-Collections/2013-My-Top-Posts-by-Rank/29961339_qP28c9

The gallery is sorted in reverse order of upload, not by number of views.

Tree Gnomes : Wood Spirits : These are the last images of the best examples of the remaining Tree Gnomes that still reside in the local wood. This ethereal community was once much, much larger. Alas, hapless victims of urban sprawl, vandalism, nature's ravage and the violence of the ubiquitous chainsaw have taken their toll. Fortunately, in archive I have photo captures on print film of the many other members of the enclave, now long since gone . Someday, when I have lots of time, ...

Christmas at the Conservatories : It is typical for botanical gardens and conservatories to put out a variety of Christmas decorations that emphasize the natural world.  This gallery is intended for photos of such decorations.  For now, I'll simply continue to add to it year after year until it becomes too unwieldly.
Shots which focus primarily on single ornaments or close-ups of a few ornaments on various trees are mostly in other specialized galleries, with just a few examples in this gallery to give an idea of what the tree decorations were like.
