11/8/09.  "Sunset on Half Dome from Glacier Point" Some nice color in the summer sky with clouds above Clouds Rest and Nevada and Vernal Falls. It was uncertain if we were going to get a good sunset as high clouds hid the sun from penetrating through. These last glimpses were at dusk as the sky started to light up. This is one of those places I want to be on a Friday afternoon!  Sept 8 -2011. Thanks for all the positive comments folks!  Love it. This image looks great as a 40x60 as well!  If you want to follow more of my photography, my Facebook Page has most of my latest images here. Thanks again!

Lizard at the Zoo - I had several images to choose from but decided on this one because of the Detail,  BG Bokeh and Composition. Thank You for Making this Daily Photo the #1 Pick on 05/13/2013     Link to Photo Without Frame
1/4/09  ICE POPSICLES  These icy globs were created by the cold and wind and the lake spray along the Lake Erie's coast.  As the water would splash over the huge boulders holding the shore in place, some would splash over and into the grass and create all kinds of frozen wonders.  View larger for more detail :-)

A Velvet Night.   for July 18,,,,   We're having a heat wave..See gallery "Hot Day in the Summertime"
September 10, 2011    Remember the story that I talked about yesterday where we ran into the rain storm and then came into the little town of Encino, NM and chased the train?  Well here is one of the shots of the train & a lightening strike.      We were parked within about 40 feet from the track that was elevated above the road we were sitting on.  The train was racing by and I was snapping photos.      It was raining pretty hard by this time, and I took lots of shots of the train out of the windshield of the car.  I was lucky enough to catch a lightening strike on this shot.  The sound was deafening.      This is not the best quality photo in the world, but I liked the way it turned out with the lightening, the train car and the dark sky.    Thanks so much for your wonderful and overwhelming comments on the road in New Mexico shot from yesterday.  That "road" shot was a precurser to this shot for today.    You guys rock!!!    I'm home today & part of tomorrow then  have to go to Austin TX for a week long class at the University of Texas.  I'll do my best to keep up with commenting on your wonderful photos.  I'm sure that will be WAY more fun than the homework we'll be expected to do in the evenings.  :-)).    Have a great day!  Linda
5-05: It's that time of year! This last couple of weeks we've been seeing baby geese everywhere. They grow so quickly - I think these are probably only about a week old.
A Daisy for the Dailies
Cormorant with a fish - the comorant has beaten this fish against the ground and, as you can see, the fish is covered with dirt and sticks.  I liked the incredible teal eye and the wild look of the cormorant in this shot.  Best viewed in the larger sizes.  Thanks for all the comments on my shot at the mall.  You guys are the best and you continue to amaze and delight me with the shots you put up.  Today was no exception!
February 1, 2009 - From the Dallas Zoo.    Following the leader, the leader, the leader  We're following the leader wherever he may go  We won't be home till morning, till morning  We won't be home till morning  Because he told us so.
Parachutists Before the Game - at the Air Force/Army game Saturday, a pre-game performance by parachutists from the Air Force Academy and West Point.  The man with the flag is a retired Air Force parachutist and a double amputee, who lost both legs in a mid-air collision with his partner, who died in the accident.  The other parachutist in this shot is a West Point cadet.  Please view this image in the largest sizes to see the detail of the parachutists, including the prothestics of the man with the flag.  I was amazed at the response to my shot of part of our yard during a recent snowstorm.  You all have made me consider using it as our Christmas card this year.  Hope everyone has a good day today!
Curiouser and curiouser  (I don't think Alice knows.)    DP128-2013  Posted May 8; processed ditto    I believe this is a cluster of mushrooms before they have grown their caps.  If anyone can add to or amend this supposition, I'd appreciate the info.  Here is a link to a picture of the type of mushroom I think it might be, when it grows up.  http://www.rogersmushrooms.com/gallery/loadimage.asp?did=19772&blockName=Hypsizygus%20tessulatus  .  Conservatory, Matthaei Botanical Gardens  Ann Arbor, Michigan  May 6, 2013  (For those curious about the lighting, it's all natural.  The light came through the glass roof of the conservatory, through an opening in the foliage of taller plants in the Tropical House portion of the conservatory.  I under-exposed a little, adjusted the white point in Lightroom 4 and darkened the background a little in Photoshop with the Levels slider, and that was pretty much it.)
Embrace the light.    Wow, thanks everyone so much for all the wonderful comments yesterday it is so encouraging.

"FLOWERING STILETTO" by Mary Consie of Mesa, AZ

"If loving shoes is wrong, I don't want to be right." ~ Godschild (Me)

This was also among my favorite sculptures that reminded me of all the ladies who love shoes as much as I do (including but not limited to): my mother, my two sisters, my aunts, my best friend, a co-worker Shelia, SmugMug ladies Linda, Paula, Janet, Maryann, Judy, Nelli, and all the other shoe-a-holics in the world.

"Flowering Stiletto," by Mary Consie of Mesa, AZ, was donated in memory of Jane Binkley (1940-2007) by her family. It was dedicated to the city of Mesa, AZ in July, 2008. Flowering Stiletto depicts a 6 foot long stiletto with a flower growing out of it. The sculpture is made of steel. Consie has said that due to having flat feet, she can't wear small shoes and creates large versions instead. Originally the sculpture was purchased by a resident of Tempe, AZ.
