Tuesday, March 27, 2012      "HUMPTY DUMPTY" by  Kimber Fiebiger   "Love all; trust a few; do wrong to none." ~ Unknown Author  And the nursery rhyme goes like this............  'Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall:  Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.  All the King's horses and all the King's men  Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.'  Well, Kimber Fiebiger of Minneapolis, Minnesota made this delightful sculpture because she, "Just loves to put a smile on people's faces." Looks like Humpty Dumpty has been put back together again and is back on his throne, which I hope brings a smile to your face. The artist's official website is here: http://www.joanofart.com/?page_id=30.   In the words of a great gospel song by Donnie McClurkin, "We fall down, but we get up!"   Actually, Oprah Winfrey may have said it best: "If you should happen to fall, turn your wounds into wisdom."  Finally, this is the last of the public art series in Mesa, AZ. Thank you for your appreciation and patience, although there are a few more public art pieces which can be viewed here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/20517416_FzGW22#!i=1656884744&k=fw75TPW  Have a "well put together" and terrific Tuesday, my friends.  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 12/28/2011)
December 29, 2010  "LET PEACEFUL WATERS FLOW"  "Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as the water from a fountain." ~ Lao-Tze, Ancient Chinese Philosopher  SOOC..........Our youngest adult son suggested that I post this one.   A million thanks for the comments on yesterday's Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass art! You ladies and gentlemen are meticulously discerning; I wish I could meet each of you on my route during this lifetime.

Embrace the light.    Wow, thanks everyone so much for all the wonderful comments yesterday it is so encouraging.
Pretty in Red  Sat. November 1, 2008 (DAY 201)    Meet Miranda...  I had a photo session for her sweet 16.  We had a great time and the weather was gorgeous;  One perfect day to take outdoor shots.  April set up the location at Forbidden Garden,  complete with the Lion Dancer!  Thanks April, that was fun!!    This photo is SOOC (straight out of camera).  I'm still working on  the rest of the pics, that I think need some touch ups.    My hubby helped me (again) with the reflector.  Thank you dear!
Monday, April 16, 2012         "FOUNTAIN"    “A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.” ~ Unknown Author    I appreciate your comments on yesterday's one pound (6,120 calories) "Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar," but after the milk chocolate bar and the five-pound gummy bear, no sweet treats for today. Instead, here's some much needed water.    Also, my hubby spotted this beautiful fountain and suggested that I photograph it. SOOC, this was taken at an office complex located on Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Unfortunately, I did not get its name.     By the way, Phillip, this is a result of long exposure; I held my breath and the shutter button down for a few seconds while counting and then released it:). I've owned a tripod for approximately two years, but it remains packaged to this day and I have never opened or used it.    Have a marvelous Monday and a great start to the week.    ***#3 photo of the day and all-time***    (photo taken 12/30/2011)
08/29/09 - I took more candle shots last night.  This is the same set-up as the night before, but I used a different candle style.  What I was going for was the perspective of high in the front and low in the back.  Not just a curve but a curve with an interesting height perspective in it.  Mostly I was just having fun with glass and reflections and seeing if I could produce a pretty picture...maybe something for a romantic greeting card.  But, coming up with catchy titles is not my thing, so, here you have it title free:-)      Dirkster, here's the set-up:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Art/Glass-Appeal-16/9421013_LHGKh#633028939_z3Uuy  Yes, I was bathroom shooting.  To get this effect, you need two mirrors that are reasonably parallel to each other.  I just happen to have a small medicine cabinet with a mirror door on the right wall and another mirror over the sink.  You open the medicine cabinet door and waa laa you have two roughly parallel mirrors.  Nice thing about this set-up is that it was at a normal height for shooting without a lot of bending.      Complications:  The darn flame was ALL OVER THE PLACE despite me doing everything I could to keep the air in the room from moving.  Sometimes if I'd wait a minute or two between shots it would cycle straight and still for 3-5 seconds and then resume it's dance.  I'd try to take my pic when it was more or less still but that was hard.    Amazing how you stop breathing when trying to take a 3 second picture.      Joey was with me around 8PM for 45 minutes helping me, and Johnny popped in and out a few times.  Joey has gotten pretty good about gently taking the pic and understands why we can't move the camera.    This was Party Lite candle wax, and at the right temp, it melts completely liquid.  I put the candle holder in the oven at 175 to to melt the wax quicker.  But, in the bathroom, over time the wax started to get solid again.  I have one great all liquid shot, but there are a few things about that pic that bother me, so I chose not to post it.  But, I thought the liquified wax was pretty cool.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Art/Glass-Appeal-16/9421013_LHGKh#633186200_Ddoh7      Anyway.......................    You guys have a great weekend!  2 more days and I will be off call and much happier...    Maryann
7470: I'm back - sort of: My computer issues rage on, I can't wait until I get my new machine up and running!! This piece of junk seems to be running again (Let's see how long that lasts lol) Anyway - This is the steam locomotive 7470 from the North Conway Scenic Railroad in North Conway, NH. I have waited 3 years for this shot! I have many more shot to show you guys that I couldn't post because of this damn machine!!  10/2/2012
Sunday, February 26, 2012      "RED BARON SQUADRON"    "When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it." ~ Henry Ford     SOOC, polished to perfection, and built in 1943 comes this 69 year old Stearman E75, N802RB of the Red Baron Pizza aerobatic team.

October 5, 2009 - "Grand Teton Sunrise"    Our first day in Jackson, Wyoming we left the hotel at 630 am to get some sunrise shots.  It was cold and dark waiting for the sun to appear first on the mountains and then on this barn.  There was some light smoke in the air from area controlled burns.    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia  Mormon Row Historic District  Mormon Row is a line of homestead complexes along the Jackson-Moran Road near the southeast corner of Grand Teton National Park. The rural historic landscape's period of significance includes the construction of the Andy Chambers, T.A. Moulton and John Moulton farms from 1908 to the 1950's. Six building clusters and a separate ruin illustrate Mormon settlement in the area and comprise such features as drainage systems, barns, fields and corrals.  The district occupies a spectacular site in Jackson Hole with the Teton Range rising in the background.
Sunday, July 15, 2012  "AZURE SEAFORM PAIR" by Dale Chihuly (2011) $5,600.00  "Among the several kinds of beauty, the eye takes most delight in colors." ~ Joseph Addison  Here's the final post in the Dale Chihuly 2012 (Dallas, TX) series; thanks for your comments. Dale Chihuly's official website is www.chihuly.com.  During our visit, I overheard someone say that turquoise is Dale Chihuly's favorite color. This work of art was sitting atop a pedestal and enclosed in glass, but that didn't prohibit me from taking a picture.  "The Azure Seaform Pair is a two-piece composition that resonates with these reflective qualities of marine forms. A tidal cadence of turquoise along the mouth of the piece illuminates the bands of lapis strata that wrap the body. Set against these temperate tonalities, a radiant yellow lip wrap defines the folding contours of the body, accentuating the form articulated in this piece. This handblown Studio Edition measures approximately ten inches across and arrives with a custom-designed display vitrine and Chihuly Seaforms, a book detailing the inspiration behind this series, with forty-four full-color photographs and an introduction by oceanographer Sylvia Earle. Azure Seaform Pair is a fluid expression of the aquatic translated through the artist’s chosen medium of glass." ~ Reprinted text from DC's PP  View the back of this hand blown glass art piece here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/19371744_9MCHQS#!i=1936594779&k=ZvBn3dj&lb=1&s=A   Be blessed and share the rest!

June 19...   This week we have the 27th annual Kite Festival on our island.  Our beach is so popular for the kite-people because we have the broad beach and a steady wind from the North Sea. About 8000 people have come from all over the world, some even come from New Zeeland, but Germans are the majority.  They send up about 15.000 kites. Quite an impressive view
July 27th, 2010    Just playing with fruit!   Thank goodness it's Tuesday!  Hope you all have a great day.
3rd year Pic 174 - Mar 03 2011 awaiting...  Mahabaleshwar Market  This is old lady was asking for alms at the weekly market.     Her belly looks big because poor women tend to keep their precious belongings or day's earnings in a small pouch tied to the waist and then covered by the saree.

4th year Pic 217 - Sep - 21 2012. Yellow Rose -  Taj Gateway Hotel, Coonoor  This is a close crop of yesterday's picture. I am greatly impressed with the D800's Dynamic Range and detail capturing.   Critiques welcome!    Have you people heard of subscription price increase at Smugmug? Mainly for Pro & Business accounts?
A little Monet to brighten your day!   Such fun I had yesterday at a swamp on the side of the road. The flower head is a fading dahlia from the Cotley Hill shoot. This is not processed either, just cropped. The brilliant color is the reflection of the surrounding swamp growth which is very colorful when shot this way. The one I'm working on for printing will be cleaned up.

"HUMPTY DUMPTY" by Kimber Fiebiger

"Love all; trust a few; do wrong to none." ~ Unknown Author

And the nursery rhyme goes like this............

'Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall:
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses and all the King's men
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.'

Well, Kimber Fiebiger of Minneapolis, Minnesota made this delightful sculpture because she, "Just loves to put a smile on people's faces." Looks like Humpty Dumpty has been put back together again and is back on his throne, which I hope brings a smile to your face. The artist's official website is here: http://www.joanofart.com/?page_id=30.

In the words of a great gospel song by Donnie McClurkin, "We fall down, but we get up!"

Actually, Oprah Winfrey may have said it best: "If you should happen to fall, turn your wounds into wisdom."

Finally, this is the last of the public art series in Mesa, AZ. Thank you for your appreciation and patience, although there are a few more public art pieces which can be viewed here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/20517416_FzGW22#!i=1656884744&k=fw75TPW

Have a "well put together" and terrific Tuesday, my friends.
