"The Boy in the Bubble" - song by Paul Simon.  This is the redone version of this.  I took a new photo of a bubble and, instead of cutting out the bubble and putting it on a different background, this time I kept the bubble and the background intact.  All I did was add the boy.  If you look at it in the largest sizes, you'll see the reflections in the bubble now reflect the actual setting in which it was taken --- although you'll see the pine trees in my garden, which do not actually show in the background itself.  You can also see that there are reflections both in front of and behind the boy.  Having done all that, I'm not sure this is really that great an image.  The boy does not pop out at you.  You have to look carefully for him.  However, I think this may be about as good a job as I can do on this idea.  I'd appreciate your thoughts regarding whether I  should enter this or the great balls of fire shot that I posted on the dailies two days ago.  Thanks, as always, for your comments, which I value a lot.  I did learn quite a bit doing this little project and that, of course, is never wasted effort.  Have a great day everyone!  My hubby and I are going up to Denver to help our daughter put up drywall in her new ballet studio.

December 6, 2010    Hello everyone - I didn't expect to be posting tonight, or this week at all because I was scheduled to be in Northern California all week; however, due to an unforeseen event, the trip was cancelled and so I am home this week, and the NoCal trip will be rescheduled sometime next year.  I'm home  and happy!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's nice to be home after all my travels over the last several weeks.  Road warriers need to restore the batteries at home some, and that's what I'm doing!!!!  YAY!    This is a  custom car and I don't know what it started life as, but it was a real beauty.  The rainbow colored paint was amazing.  As you walked around the car it would change in color from black to dark midnight blue then to medium blue  and then almost a tourquoise color, then it would shift again to a light maroon and a red.  There were several other color changes in between too.  It's hard to describe all the color variations.  It was at a car show and as you can see it was sprinkling rain and I felt sorry for the owners who were trying to keep their cars wiped down and dry.  I liked the rain drops on the car and the reflection of the other car beside it.  The beauty of the colors are best viewed in X3    Have a great evening Smugmuggers.    Linda
Fire in the Sky  October 2009  Another day in southwest Montana and another gorgeous sunrise to share.  This little cabin is a favorite of mine and I photograph it whenever I visit Big Sky Country. That is an outhouse on the left.  This is about as rustic as it gets in the 21st century.
Sunday, April 22, 2012    "THE PHOENIX"     "Hold fast to your dreams, for without them life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly." ~ Langston Hughes     SOOC........a different twist, but nevertheless, here's my contribution to fellow SmugMugger L. Perry Fuqua's "Earth Day" Challenge.     Of course, the colors were the initial attraction to this work of art.  This photo was taken as we were walking through the airport to await the boarding of our flight for home from Phoenix, AZ to Houston, TX. Unfortunately, I didn't get the artist name.    DISCLAIMER: The following views are not my personal views, opinions, or beliefs. The texts are included as background, informational purposes only. A card was given to me by a young man who was standing in the store after I snapped this picture. The following texts were written on it. Coincidentally, when I uploaded the Arizona photos and started putting the dates on them, this one just so happened to fall on today. With that said........    "The Phoenix" is associated with triumph over adversity, and that which rises out of ashes. It is symbolic of hope, purity, faith, eternity, and light. The Phoenix not only represents immortality but also an individual who stands apart from the rest, a person of rare qualities."    Additionally, "Only one Phoenix exists at a time. When the mystical bird felt its death was near, it would rebuild a nest of aromatic twigs in which it burned from the heat of its own body. The Phoenix would be consumed by the flames and then would resurrect from the ashes. The Phoenix's flight has been said to represent the capacity to leave the world and its problems behind, flying toward the sun in clear pure skies." ~ Reprinted texts from the card    Thanks for your comments on the collectible "Salt and Pepper Shakers" that landed in the #1 spot yesterday.    Have a beautiful and blessed Sunday.    Sky Harbor International Airport  Phoenix, AZ    ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***    (photo taken 12/31/2011)
Thursday, June 7, 2012    "DELICATE BEAUTIES"    “Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.” ~ Maya Angelou     This summer, I am only perusing and commenting on photos as my limited time permits. Although it is summer vacation, I am not idle. This is a very busy time for me, as I have embarked upon a new and very challenging endeavor.    Don't miss a blooming thing this spring! This is one of my favorite flower captures. An abundance of colors, fragrances, and scenic views await you in these gardens. Also, I read that the meaning of hibiscus is "delicate beauty;" thus, the caption. These orange hibiscuses are amazing tropical flowers that come in many shapes, sizes and varieties.  They are known for their beauty and their large, colorful blooms.  You can plant hibiscus flowers indoors, outdoors, as a shrub, or as a simple flower.  With all of the different options available, who would not want to plant this flower?     SPEAKING OF SPORTS: In the words of Reggie Miller, we watched "greatness grow up" last night as the "young guns" of OKC defeated the San Antonio Spurs in OKC and ended the series 4 - 2. OKC has advanced to the NBA Finals........woo hoo!! Tonight, Boston Celtics will host Miami Heat in game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The series is 3 - 2 with Boston leading the way. The family and I are pulling for Boston.  If Boston is victorious tonight, they will go on to face OKC in the NBA Finals - date TBD.     I truly appreciate your comments on yesterday's "Banana Tree" photo; it was the #2 photo of the day. Congrats to Maryann (aka "fotomom") for the #1 photo.    Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday.    Bellingrath Gardens and Home  Mobile, AL    ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***    (photo taken 5/26/2012)
June 30...    A 250 year old house of a sea captain. The two dogs in the window have a special meaning: When they were looking out of the window the husband were at sea, when looking into the house he was at home and her special friends should stay away.
11-07-09 A thousand worlds    I finally take the time to process a series of "spider webs in the mist" that have these wonderful droplets. The colors in the background come from autumn leaves. This one was taken when the Sun began to shine through the mist.     Almost no processing here (just slightly enhanced contrast and sharpened)...
A shot of a piano in our home. Its a beautiful piece of furniture to bad I can't  play it,,,,, The company I found went out of business during the Great Depression I have been told the piano dates back to approx 1915 to 1920. Just a neat piece to have a round. Have a great day everyone. And Thank You for all the great comments you all put up daily...
11-12: During my lunch break Tuesday  I found another trail along the river north of town. It was a nicer day and I had a very pleasent walk. I thought this was a pretty interesting bridge.

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)
03-03-09 Metz : le Temple Neuf    Another night shot from the city of Metz. Would have looked better in a panoramic crop but I could definitely not cut out the reflections !
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!
