Tuesday, September 6, 2011             "TIERFUL"  "Colors are the smiles of nature" ~ Leigh Hunt  Worthy of a return visit............"The Field of Zinnias"  Remember the zinnias in yesterday's POTD? Well, these were captured in the same field. I love how these zinnias appear to be in tiers, overlapping, and/or cascading. I also love the mixture of colors. The frames were applied from PicNik.  Always popular with gardeners for their lush and lovely appearance, zinnias are traditional symbols of lasting love and good memories. Zinnias are longtime garden favorites for colorful, round flowers. I was told that these flexible hot-weather plants don’t gain from being planted early and stand still until weather warms up.

Monday, July 2, 2012  "COBALT MARLINS and TRUMPET FLOWER FIORI" by Dale Chihuly (2009)  "I'm very interested in transformation and how objects are transformed. Reflected images will become as substantial as real works. It's not about the object; it's about form, color, light and shape." ~ Therman Statom, American Studio Glass artist  I absolutely love color; and Dale Chihuly's glass art is full of it! I wish I could click my heels together and be transported to every city in the world where his art is exhibited and take photos. Wishful thinking?    Well, here's a SOOC (no flash) shot of the centerpiece of attention measuring 96 x 96 x 96 inches; it is MY FAVORITE in this exhibit of hand blown glass among his current exhibits. Dale Chihluy, the artist, describes it as "a visual feast of exuberant color and daring form - brilliant, indoor garden created with blown glass flowers and daring verticals that reach almost nine feet above their base."   Additionally, thank you for your comments on the "Spearmint Seafoam Set with Cinnamon Red Lip Wraps" yesterday. Each day, there are superlative photos posted in this community. Although my time perusing and commenting on photos is very limited this summer, I genuinely appreciate you taking time to peruse and comment on mine. It has never gone unnoticed or taken for granted.   Disclaimer: Although I post what I like (emphasis on "I"), I'll try not to bore you; there's more SOOC photos of Dale Chihuly's glass art forthcoming:).  Dale Chihuly's official website is www.chihuly.com  Have a marvelous Monday.  ***#2 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken June 29, 2012)

August 2, 2009  Noogies.......Traverse City, Michigan - A good time was had by all.      This started as a sweet little shot of my daughter Jill, and 3 of her boys giving me a silhouette in the sunset and ended with, lets give Mommy a noogie.

I've been stuck in the house all day again today...I will be sooo glad when the rain stops!! Anyways, had to dig up another one from my walk!    Thanks so much for the comments on my ladybug..I was so excited to finally find one! It was my first ladybug shot.
Under the Bridge, Columbia MO    We were back at Grindstone Nature Area yesterday to take some photos of our friends' dogs.  Big Red had to stay home and rest his recently broken toenail :(    I'm taking photos of this bridge almost every time we go now, as long as there is a good sky and the water is still.  The creek widens out here, so it's a great place to practice taking reflection photos.    UPDATE:  Here is the link to the new smugmug layout that is coming soon.

Fire on the river - Connecticut River, Springfield, MA
Mehendi hands  (Best seen in Large or Original size)     Beside geometrical figures & flowers, the design includes an Elephant and two human faces. At times the name of the groom is also written (hidden) which he has to find out later on!     This kind of detailed design would take 3-5 hours (hands & legs)!    for reference check the earlier two photos:     http://hershy.smugmug.com/gallery/4836391_ACj8A/1/271804178_q2CWc/Medium    http://hershy.smugmug.com/gallery/4836391_ACj8A/1/270314185_g8p5k/Medium    for more info on Mehendi  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mehndi    www.javeri.net
