22.3.08 - Happy Easter! We actually had some snow showers today, but none of it settled so no snowy DP today. I had to go into town, and on the way back decided to dodge a particularly nasty snow shower by going into the cathedral. I timed it just right for a guided roof tour, and ended up staying for nearly two hours. This isn't my most innovative or quirky shot of the cathedral, but it does show its gothic majesty off best. I can never get my head round the fact that this was all built by hand; no scaffolding, no cranes, no laser range finders, just blood and sweat. I took over 80 photos today(!), so some of them will make it to other galleries when I get chance. I'll probably start a separate gallery for Cathedral interiors, and there were some stunning views from the roof! Happy Easter..........

Resting  My hometown of Killybegs from a different angle. The tide is out as is most of the fishing fleet. Taken in the evening.  Day 93: 25 May 2010  Thank you for the wonderful welcome back.
May 25 : When out this morning at 2 am and took a quickly when back out at 3:15 and caught this one, I caught my hydrangeas in the cross fire of the cabnet shops night light pole next door and the back drop of my light pole shining down on the morning mist fog causeing affect I like.
Update: This image won me a first place in the Ellison Center for the Arts (Duxbury Art Association) Annual Winter Juried Show. The opening was February 6th and it was a blast to attend as a winning photographer. After almost a week of no sun, lots of rain and not feeling well, I finally felt a little inspired to get out there and shoot. It felt good. There's still plenty of color out there.  You just have to look a little harder and think more on the macro level. I've actually been in a funk with fall being over. It is by far my most favorite season, especially for photography. I'm sad that it's over. I'll keep trying to squeeze color out of my world. Because of bad eyesight, shapes and color are mostly what I see. Anyway...the sun is returning today! Have a great day.
Storm on the California Coast line
1-11: Saturday morning we drove up Highways 7 and did some hiking in Wild Basin. This is "Chapel on the Rock" built in 1935, part of Saint Malo Catholic Retreat off of Highway 7. I think it's a neat looking old chapel and it resides in a very beautiful setting. Behind is Mt. Meeker. As you can see, it was another very windy morning up in the mountains. A lot of snow was blowing off the mountain peaks.
Sunday, May 15, 2011   "ANTIQUE CHEVY"  (pp version)  "Keep calm and drive a Chevy!" ~ Unknown Author  Linda (aka Lgood) is one of the absolute best at capturing automobile shots and their reflections, and I immediately thought of her when I spotted this GM classic. Unfortunately, there wasn't an information card, so I am unsure as to the year of this "oldie but goodie." My hubby's guess is it's a "1930 something Chevy." The pink sign made spectators chuckle. It warned, "UNLESS YOU ARE NUDE.....PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH MY CHEVY! BUCKLES, BELTS, AND BUTTONS SCRATCH."   As you can see, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped.

God is and has been exceptionally kind to all of us; have a blessed and safe Sunday, everyone.

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.
Morning at Maa Farm 24 May 2010  Shot at Maa Farm where we stay while in Ranthambhore.  Best seen in XLarge size.   www.javeri.net
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.
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
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!
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!
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
22.3.08 - Happy Easter! We actually had some snow showers today, but none of it settled so no snowy DP today. I had to go into town, and on the way back decided to dodge a particularly nasty snow shower by going into the cathedral. I timed it just right for a guided roof tour, and ended up staying for nearly two hours. This isn't my most innovative or quirky shot of the cathedral, but it does show its gothic majesty off best. I can never get my head round the fact that this was all built by hand; no scaffolding, no cranes, no laser range finders, just blood and sweat. I took over 80 photos today(!), so some of them will make it to other galleries when I get chance. I'll probably start a separate gallery for Cathedral interiors, and there were some stunning views from the roof! Happy Easter..........

I've put one of today's efforts here http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4518270_XDZuH#268878026
