30.11.08 - Peace and Contemplation    This image was left over from a couple of days ago when I did the misty collage. I always felt that I could do something else with this, and in the end this is just a sepia photo filter, but it conveys the feelings I wanted to get across, so I'm really happy with it. At the time I sloppily let the back of my car intrude into the photo, so that was cloned out. But otherwise it is just a B&W conversion, an adjustment of contrast and the sepia filter. I love these misty days with the sun trying to break through, and the stark silhouettes of the trees, mind you, it was bloody cold :)    There is an alternative treatment here which emphasises the cold a bit more;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4328734_9ZqLR#427338235_SzU46      For those of you that asked about my curry night, it was a lot of fun. I love cooking, especially Indian food, and this was a chance to show off a bit with friends. They brought liquid refreshment, I did the food, and we all got totally stuffed! I'm now eating the leftovers, which are even tastier than last night :)
September 7 2010 Chicago is My Kind of Town    In this night skyline shot you can see the Chicago River in the center, the famous S-Curve of Lake Shore Drive near the bottom and Monroe Harbor in the distance to the left.  I shot this looking South East from th 31st floor of Lake Point Tower.    Thank you so much for making my Raining Fire picture #1 yesterday.  I was fascinated by the observation that it reminded some people of a weeping willow tree.
Mural Reflections, Omaha NE    This is the back of a "Family Dollar," store.  The mural depicts some of the small businesses around this neighborhood.  The puddles are from the snowmelt.  We parked in this lot to eat at our favorite Indian restaurant in Omaha, "Mother India."  Mother India is very small and only has seating for maybe 20 people and there can be a line just to get in the door.  The food is made from scratch when you order so it can take a while, but the food is amazing.    For other pictures of this mural and Mother India see my Christmas in Omaha gallery here: http://paulbellinger.smugmug.com/Other/Christmas/15254580_KJNZZ#1141323353_fejg3    Daily photo: December 30, 2010, taken December 28, 2010
June 29, 2008    Morning catch.    Thanks for all your prayers, they seem to be working because my mom seemed a little better yesterday. She smiled allot although I think she's very scared.     I got up early yesterday before visiting hours so I could shoot a little. It is certainly a good release. Or after hours I see if anything is out and about.     The nurses have been so super to her. When I can't visit with her because of visiting hours I'll call and talk to the nurses to check on her. They are so good about going and telling her everything. She is in a sort of icu. They call it a step down.    ps. I told her how everyone is praying for her and she had tears  in her eyes.    They are having a hard time with her bp right now so keep your fingers crossed.
3-29: My older daughter and her family just moved into a townhouse and nearby I saw some interesting art work on the train cars. The composition isn't quite what I wanted - but I still kind of like it.

Tiniest hummer I ever seen.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!!    POTD February 14, 2011 - Best viewed in X2    This classic Ford truck is really red, but I was experimenting with PP - just playing around really.  But I kind of liked this effect.  I particularly liked the reflections of the Mustang in the side, the grass in the wheels and the understated color of this beauty.    Best viewed in x large to see the fine detail.    Here's the 'original' shot straight out of the camera:   http://lgood.smugmug.com/gallery/12442807_L6QVo/#1187288707_Bu2oA    Thanks for all you kind comments this week.  Have a good one!!!!    Best regards.,  Linda
April 28    Yes....I missed uploading a DP for yesterday!  By the time we finished that 24 hrs. of frivilous fun in the desert area near Ridgecrest (California), I was too tired to tend to my DP; I'm admitting it!!   Had another outstanding day today; ending our trip by arriving in our own little hometown at sunset!  This is what we were watching while driving the last couple of miles down the highway!  SPECTACULAR!!  What a "welcome home"!   Took the first available offramp in order to catch this shot!!  (Tough choice, though!  This was right after a double rainbow which we also pulled over for!!)    We did spend some discussion as to how difficult it was going to be to choose a DP for yesterday, and today!!  Over the next several days, I will be using shots from this trip as DP's, as I add photos to the gallery.
Happy New Year    Baltimore's New Year's Inner Harbor Fireworks    The New Year's fireworks were postponed on New Year's Eve because of poor weather. They were rescheduled for early New Year's evening. The wind was calm and the crowd was small and I was blessed with a great opportuninity to get a nice photograph.
22.2.09 - Red Sky at Night, Photographer's Delight :)  There are times when I feel that sunset photos are nothing to do with me, all I do is point and shoot, Mother Nature and Uncle Nikon do the work! I am also lucky that less than 2 minutes walk from my flat I have this view, so when I see something developing in the sky I just grab the camera and stroll round to the old quarry. Last night was a pretty special sunset as you can see. This is straight out of camera, and there are 11 more in my Lincoln Sunsets Gallery here;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4053411_yY5Qg#478293082_9jPb4    As I said, not a lot to do with me as a photographer, but still damn spectacular :)
Memory of Innisfree - I created this image for the last Dgrin megachallenge, which I was honored to get to participate in.  The original shot was of the waterwheel and shed like building.  I then added the water and, finally, added the brush and hand, which was cut out of another shot.  Then I gave the image some treatments that I thought made it look more like a painting.  I'd forgotten about the image when I came across it today and decided I'd like for you all to see it.  Thanks for the comments on my little macro shot of the branch and place where the pine cone had fallen off.  Hope your week has started off well and that it continues to go well.
"The Foggy Lake" I couldn't decide on which version of this image I wanted to put up today so instead of going nuts I decided to place them BOTH in my daily gallery since I was a day behind on my listings anyway. This is the COLOR version that has been processed using NIK COLOR EFEX PRO 3 and then adding some minor Contrast & sharpening. The B&W version of can be seen as the next image in this gallery or if you can here by way of the Daily main page you can CLICKING HERE  Let me know which one YOU like the best !  Enjoy Folks !
