8.7.08 - Busy Bee.    This is another Daily that came about completely by accident. I was driving to meet the kids from school and had a few minutes to spare, so took a little detour to take some photos of some large round hay bales that I'd seen a few days ago. I took a few of them, and a couple can be found here;   http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4518270_XDZuH#328255423_sfE8d    Then I noticed a strip of wildflowers along the edge of a field of oilseed rape, right under my nose. I took a few of those too, which can be found here;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4328734_9ZqLR#328266774_5HCEd    Then this evening there was a bit of a sunset, and a couple of shots can be found here;   http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4053411_yY5Qg#328260277_Ybmiv    So it was a difficult choice, but I was so pleased at how sharp this little chap came out that he had to be my Daily for today, phew :)    PS. and I still haven't got a proper macro lens, this was hand held with my trusty Nikkor 55-200mm, and it was windy.
10.4.09 - "The Ladye"  Time for another photo from the Lady of Shalott project http://www.theladyofshalott.co.uk/index.html The film will be launched next month, but more imagery has been released recently so this isn't giving any secrets away now. This shot is from the first shoot I was involved in, back in September 2008. It was taken in Hartsholme Park at dusk, in an attempt to recreate a famous painting of The Lady, hence the treatment of this image. I have to admit that of all the tens of thousands of photos that I've taken this is one of my all time favourites. I love the dreamlike quality of it, and the simple fact that it is nothing like anything I've ever done before, and it was also a huge challenge to shoot at the time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)  I've been insanely busy the last couple of days so haven't been on the Dailies, but I'll try and catch up over the weekend, have a great Easter everyone!
May 18, 2009 - "If You Can't Play It, Flaunt It"
This is Willie, my neighbor's cat. Willie is 13 years old and has a mean streak in him. He will let you pet him, but, only three times and then he attacks you. His owner can't even pet him. And apparently Willie has a great memory. Day 16:365 @sharkbayte  I am hoping Wilie stays up on the board this time around. Seems he has been removed a few times already. He's really a nice cat! I swear!
1-23: Quite a dramatic view of the out house near River Bend ponds. I never posted the color version but I like the B&W better. It looks like it's out in the middle of nowhere but actually it's pretty close to the parking lot - I have to walk passed it to get back to my car. This was taken shortly after sundown a couple of weeks ago.
April 25, 2008    Swinging Bridge at Tishomingo, Built in 1939 -     I shot this same bridge about a year ago, and have always liked the pic, but was never really satisfied with it...I'm happier now-    edit: the other shot.  &nbsp

FEB.9,2012   The Shadow challenge for Paula!    It's an early post due to my work schedule. I've been working on these captures all week and I love some of neighborhood homes with tree shadows on them , but my "red" always wins out for me.
09/25/09 - I was working at my computer yesterday when I noticed that there was a lot of condensation on the outside of my water bottle.  One thing lead to another, and I came up with this shot.  There's a flashlight behind the bottle that has a lot of little tiny light bulbs in it.  The water droplets took on the pattern of the bulbs.  I turned it b&w, cropped it, and fixed a bad spot on the water bottle that was distracting.  It's different...certainly in my daily gallery next to yesterday's vivid Halloween color shot!  Work was just horrible yesterday.  I hope I get to spend more time with my kids and my camera today.    Thank you all for the feedback on yesterday's glass shot.  You're a great inspiration to me to keep pushing to come up with something even more creative and pretty.    Happy Friday! Maryann  While I wasn't fully awake this morning, I put the caption under the keywords.  Thankfully, I discovered my error and was able to copy the text instead of having to rewrite it.
April 24, 2008    The Tennessee River and the Natchez Trace-    And, we had a little more light for tonight's game...enough for an alternate pic-  Check out the tongue-
May 26,,,   I love this green weed and the toad stools.
Taking Flight  I am travelling to Donegal today. Going there for a family get-together. I will be gone until Monday. My mum does not have broadband so I will not be able to upload or comment until my return.  Day 91: May 19, 2010
July 6:  Mr Spidey Yes I know, ooohhh youck a bug :).  I was out looking for a pod, had my 18-200 on and was prowling the neighborhood.  I found nothing spectacular, just a few shot.  Most of the flowers are dead now due to the excessive heat and the lack of water we have had.  I had found a whole 4 shots which were not much when I spotted this guy on the weeping cherry in my front yard.  I went in the house and got the 105 macro and the R1 flash rig.  I set the flash units on the ring at 0 EV and -1.3 EV and went out.  He was still there so I fired away.  I took about 30 shots to get a few good ones.  He was a fast moving little guy and I chased him around the tree while he was spinning his web.  In the end he stopped and was doing some furious work with the front legs and then disappeared.  When I looked he was on the ISO knob of the camera checking me out.  He is only the size of the thumbnail on my little finger so he is small.  I did crop the shot for less leave and better view.  I added +5 black and +16 clarity in Lightroom.
07-26-09  MMW  Idea and inspiration from Manny Librodo's work...and a special thanks to Mili (the model) and Bindu (for assistance).   Strobist: SB24 through umbrella from behind model. SB800 through softbox above and in front of model.   1. If you had to choose a different career what would you choose and why? Social work – I’m not sure if that’s a career, but that’s what I really want to do and will do some day. I think there is nothing to beat the satisfaction of helping those who need it the most. My particular interest is in helping underprivileged children in developing nations get an education.  2. What is your favourite cuisine? Why? Chinese food - there are many versions and I like them all. Having lived in Shanghai for a year I enjoyed authentic Chinese food, having grown up in India I've always loved Indian Chinese, and lately even American Chinese will do :-)  3. Do you believe in love at first sight? I think it depends on the kind of love. For non platonic adult love - not really. Having a pleasant face is always nice, but love is a complex and deep emotion that has very little to do with the way one looks. It takes time for love to happen and grow. For parental love – yes. Each time I saw the faces of my kids for the first time I fell in love, but even that love grows and deepens with time.  4. What is the most philanthropic deed you have done? Spent a day with the elderly in an old age home in India. That’s when I realized that there is no joy like helping a helpless human being….or animal for that matter.  5. What kind of music do you like? Having been a dancer for most of my life, having lived in India, and being married to a musician, music has always played an important role in my life and I like almost all kinds – my favorites are contemporary jazz, slow rock, R&B, and some Bollywood music!  Sorry I haven't had a chance to catch up on the dailies - been trying to revamp my page.  Hope to do so in the next couple of days..
The road less traveled is the best one. Shortly it turns to gravel and puts you next to the rivers edge where the foliage lights up the viewfinder. Wisconsin, the road to Strong Falls.   Thanks for making yesterday's photo go to the front page and all the awesome comments!!!! Paul Sr.
8.7.08 - Busy Bee.

This is another Daily that came about completely by accident. I was driving to meet the kids from school and had a few minutes to spare, so took a little detour to take some photos of some large round hay bales that I'd seen a few days ago. I took a few of them, and a couple can be found here; http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4518270_XDZuH#328255423_sfE8d

Then I noticed a strip of wildflowers along the edge of a field of oilseed rape, right under my nose. I took a few of those too, which can be found here; http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4328734_9ZqLR#328266774_5HCEd

Then this evening there was a bit of a sunset, and a couple of shots can be found here; http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4053411_yY5Qg#328260277_Ybmiv

So it was a difficult choice, but I was so pleased at how sharp this little chap came out that he had to be my Daily for today, phew :)

PS. and I still haven't got a proper macro lens, this was hand held with my trusty Nikkor 55-200mm, and it was windy.
