Storm on the California Coast line
March 29, 2011    A Hunk of American Steel and loads of chrome on this beauty.   This is a 1958 Buick Super and a fantastic car, totally gorgeous.  It's an example of the iconic American cars of the 1950's.      It's one of my favorites that I see often - it belongs to our friend Ted who is in our same car club.      This shot is from Saturday's car show - hope you enjoy.    And.......... here's an extreme PP of this shot here:  http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_L6QVo#1230532693_N8wot    Hope you enjoy!!!!!  Let me know which version you like best.    thanks a million for all your great comments!!!!!!!!!!!    Linda    Late edit June, 2012 - Mr. Ted Phelps who owned this car passed away this week.  He was a wonderful man, he loved his Buick and he and this lovely car won lots of awards all over the U.S.A.  RIP Ted.

Yesterday I woke up at sunrise. The sun was barely over the horizon at southeast. As I looked out of my bedroom window I saw this landscape to the northwest with the full moon as a golden coin. I at once grabbed my camera, opened the window even as the temperature was minus 10° centigrade and made some shots. Here is one of them. 10 minutes later the sun was well over the horizon, the sky was lit and the moon hardly to be seen.
Maggie can fly!  My daughter teaches ballet and gives pilates classes at her own studio in Denver, which is co-located with the Denver Dance Center.  A few weeks ago, the center which has only been in existence for a bit over a year, had its first performance.  Maggie is an young adult who still loves to dance and can, obviously, still perform.  Flash was not allowed during the performance and I sat way over on one side, but I managed to catch this shot of her during one of her leaps.  Thanks so much for the comments on my latest Grand Canyon shot.  I'm still processing those shots.  I think I have about eight folders of shots and I've processed only about one and a half.  I'm really enjoying it and it is making me think I want to go back to the Grand Canyon and spend more time there.  So many places, so little time...  Have a grand weekend and Halloween!
September 27, 2009 SHE MADE IT!!!!    Proud Mom moment here. Yesterday Emily went to the call-back auditions for the Moscow Ballets Nutcracker. They were calling the girls back in twos to dance again in front of the Russian instructor. There were a few girls she had remembered enough that they did not have to audition again. Emily was one of them. She has a part dancing in The Coffee Dance (arabian). There will be 5 performances the weekend of November 20th, 21st and 22nd at the Majestic Theater in Dallas. I am so proud of her. She starts rehearsals next Saturday

07/10/10 - Not Your Purple Coneflower This is one of the 'special' varieties of Coneflower that The Garden Hut had when I visited on Thursday.  Shorter stem and shorter petals and what a cool orange/yellow color.  I'm not sure what the other flower was behind them, but I liked the color that flower added to the shot.   Thank you very much for the comments on my flower shot from yesterday...  It's cloudy here today big time, and even though there was rain near me last night, just a drop at my house.    HAGD, Maryann
180 24th Oct  Petronas Towers     Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   Shot hand held with D200 & 18-70mm. No PP.     The Petronas Twin Towers (also known as the Petronas Towers or Twin Towers), in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia were the world's tallest buildings, before being surpassed by the Taipei 101. However, the towers are still the tallest twin buildings and office building in the world.     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petronas_Twin_Towers    www.javeri.net
March 10, 2011    Up close & personal with a real classic beauty.  I'm sorry I didn't get the details on this lovely car, but I was too enthralled with it to snap a photo of the tag.  I really loved the colors and the reflections in the front fenders were amazing.  One of my all time favorites, and that's high praise for as many classic cars as I've seen.    Hope you all enjoy, and that this beauty brings you a happy smile today.      Thanks to everyone for your very kind comments on my photos over the last few days.  I'm still on the road, and working hard.  I've not been able to comment as much as I'd like to and enjoy all of your wonderful photos, but the plan is to get caught up this weekend.    Have a good one!    Linda
9 Jun 2009    A train from the past :-)    Spotted this near Denver International Airport, and the sun forced me to pull over my car to get a shot of this.
Hey, Mom, isn't this how YOU make soup?  Last week I had my first ever photoshoot with a baby.  Chyler is an adorable six-month-old girl and has to have one of the best dispositions ever.  I shot pictures of her for over an hour and she never fussed at all, except when her mom was changing her outfit for the second time.  This is one of the images from that shoot.  If you are interested, the rest are here:  http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/gallery/8414425_vn5R3#P-1-12.  Thanks for all the nice comments on my hubby's picture today.  There were sure a lot of terrific shots on the dailies today.  We are going to a breakfast and preview of a show of the work of Fernando Botero, a Mexican artist, at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.  Botero sculpts and paints and is known for his characterizations of rather rotund people.  We're looking forward to seeing the show.  Have a great day, everyone!
3.10.09 - Ghost in the Machine  Ghostly goings on at Gainsborough Old Hall. I've had this idea ever since I found out that this was called the "ghost corridor", so while I was trapped inside the PC I thought I'd have a go at creating this. It is the first time I've experimented with layers in this way, maybe I should have made Lydia even more transparent, but hey I'm sure I'll try this again.  Those of you that haven't already seen my gallery of the Hall might want to check this out;    http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/History/GAINSBOROUGH-OLD-HALL/9662694_gb4gb#652216254_Fyruu  Thanks for the wonderful response to my silly SP yesterday, it was a lot of fun making that :)
