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
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)...
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.
"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.
Hi everyone,  This is Jay, Harsh's son. You'll might have been wondering how come dad has been so silent and not put up any Daily pics for over a week now. He asked me to put up a post informing you'll of his illness.  Unfortunately,  on Saturday (10th May) evening, he suffered a massive heart attack and had to be hospitalized immediately.  Fortunately his life was saved by the angioplasty in which they put two stents into an artery but he's still in the ICU.  His lungs and heart were severely compromised and he was on a ventilator for a few days.  There has been progress but he's still got some way to go until recovery so I take the liberty to request you to include him in your prayers and wish for a recovery for him.  Thanks and Regards, Jay Javeri  Pic: Harsh Javeri, by Jay
6/18/2012 A wipe out. Thanks for the comments on Sundays photo.  I was a good day butt in the sand feet in the ocean and camera in hand. A swell 2-4 feet wind out of the NE 13 mph swell period 12s. Hope all you Dads had a good day.  Back to work be safe.

October 17, 2013  As I've said before, I love Aspen trees.  I would have loved to have been in Colorado at the time of their leaves turning that brilliant, golden yellow color.  Nevertheless, I enjoyed them in their late summer stage too.  I loved that this stand was so thick & I could see deep into their world and find their unique markings far from the front set of trees.  This thick stand of Aspens brought to mind many of Bev Doolittle's prints.  I am a big fan of Bev Doolittle.  This shot reminded me most of her "Sacred Ground" print.  Also, the triptych "Two More Indian Horses" (which hangs in my living room).  I would highly recommend that you google her Sacred Ground Print, and I think you'll see why this shot put me in mind of that piece of art.  Have a strong and steady day!  Linda
2013-04-28. Cone flower in bloom. Processed with Topaz Black and White Effects. The color version is in my flower gallery.  Here's the link:  http://kjakes1.smugmug.com/Nature/Flowers/i-MmLxthF/2/XL/_MG_0559a-XL.jpg  Thank you to Photopondering for suggesting black and white.  Also, Thanks for your comments on my smoke tree photo    ADDED NOTE on 4/29: This (#10 spot) photo marks the end of my 6th month in the Daily Community. I know there are gaps and many of my pictures are off as I have a long way to go. I am grateful to you all for inspiring me to take better pictures. This has been an unforgettable experience. Now it's time to take a break and take care of my family.
Friday, December 31, 2010  "DESERT WILDFLOWER TOWERS" by Dale Chihuly  "As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs." ~ Sam Abell  First of all, Donna McCommon, this is why I was so excited about your POTD yesterday; I had already chosen this picture to be my final post of the year when I arrived home from Arizona. This is SOOC without flash. I am a huge Dale Chihuly fan; great minds think alike!   Secondly, I would like to thank you, fellow SmugMuggers, for your inspiring comments on my 2010 POTDs. I learned so much from many of you, made some new friends along the way, improved my photography skills immensely, and even had a photo (12/21/2010) to land in the #1 spot, two photos (12/17/2010 and 12/29/2010) to land in the #2 spot, and several to land in the top five. Who knew that posting a photo a day would render such rewards for a self-described "advanced amateur?"    Moreover, I am so excited about perusing all of your 2011 fabulous photos, posting comments, and giving you a thumbs up. You ladies and gentlemen are meticulously discerning. I wish I could meet each of you on my route during this lifetime.   Finally, as the world turns, we only have one life to live. May the guiding light that leads to another world keep us young at heart, unrestless, and out of General Hospital. My prayer for each of you is a safe, blessed, healthy, fun, and happy 2011. In spite of the bumps and bruises, God has been exceptionally kind to all of us.

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, February 15, 2011  "LINES AND SWIRLS" Abstract  "Bright colours or dark ones, sparkling clarity or misty atmosphere, landscape, still life, portrait - I haven't met a subject, style, or mood yet that can't be portrayed beautifully in pastel."  ~ Dave Beckett  By date, this is my 10th pp creation! Here's a link to the original:    http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/15299231_BkGGq#1188286892_VWMmf  Thanks a million for your shout-outs on yesterday's Valentine's Day post; it landed and remained in the #3 spot. You all really showed me some "love!" Also, I "loved" perusing your beautiful photos!    Have a "Terrific Today," everyone!  ***#1 photo of the day and all time***  (original photo taken 1/23/2011 and pp 2/14/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
