June 10, 2008      Feeling mellow...in yellow.  Squirrel update. These two were tired as they just had an orgy up in my oak tree. Yep, that's right. I couldn't believe it either.
13.04.12 - The Blue Lady    These alien planet experiments have been something very very different for me, and although I have no intention of doing them regularly I would recommend that everyone tries at least one of them. The idea came to me when I was thinking of the backgrounds that are going to be added to the green screen in some of the scenes in our Dr Who movie, which is nearing completion by the way..     The model here is my friend Jo, who designs and makes beautiful dresses like these as Blue Lady Couture. Her work is well worth seeking out.     The basic principle of making these is very simple, just put one image on top of another and erase the bits you don't want so that it looks like one picture, but of course it isn't as simple as that :)    But the more you do the easier they get. I'd recommend starting with pics with a level unbroken horizon, those are much easier to join. Then gradually build up to more complicated images. Long hair and transparent materials are the hardest part of making these, and I've certainly not perfected that part of things yet!    IMPORTANT:- hopefully a final word on the thumbs downers and abusive anonymous commenters. Thanks for your responses to my comments yesterday, but it is very important that if you want this resolving you must contact Andy at Smug about it. As I type this no one has added to the thread I started on Dgrin, and unless people contact Smug they are likely to claim that it isn't an issue and continue to ignore the situation. If you have contacted Andy privately then thank-you for that, and let's hope that he is as good as his word and does something about it.
30.11.08 - Peace and Contemplation    This image was left over from a couple of days ago when I did the misty collage. I always felt that I could do something else with this, and in the end this is just a sepia photo filter, but it conveys the feelings I wanted to get across, so I'm really happy with it. At the time I sloppily let the back of my car intrude into the photo, so that was cloned out. But otherwise it is just a B&W conversion, an adjustment of contrast and the sepia filter. I love these misty days with the sun trying to break through, and the stark silhouettes of the trees, mind you, it was bloody cold :)    There is an alternative treatment here which emphasises the cold a bit more;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4328734_9ZqLR#427338235_SzU46      For those of you that asked about my curry night, it was a lot of fun. I love cooking, especially Indian food, and this was a chance to show off a bit with friends. They brought liquid refreshment, I did the food, and we all got totally stuffed! I'm now eating the leftovers, which are even tastier than last night :)

This is some type of Gecko.  My husband and my Mom, yep, that's right my Mom and I went to the reptile show in Cleveland.   I have been wanting a "Red Eyed Tree Frog" for a long time but didn't expect to find on there but was pleasantly surprised.  There are so many fascinating critters there and lots of fun taking pictures of them. Most of the sellers don't seem to mind.   I will probably go again next month since my grandson Gregory seen Lucy he wants to go.
June 30, 2011    Here's another one of the 'reflection' photos that I enjoy seeing and snapping shots of.  The red 1950 Ford pickup is reflected in the hub cap of a 1940 Chevrolet.  I thought it was pretty cool because the red accents in the wheel really set the red of the reflected pickup off nicely.  And don't you love those big white wall tires?    If you check this out in X2 or X3, you'll be able to see lots of neat details and reflections.    Both vehicles are owned by our friend Gary, and were at the recent car show.  To see a larger photo of the Chevrolet car, click here:    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_L6QVo/#1355627499_DRdWCbv    We are enjoying our vacation.  Sorry for the very little commenting I've been able to do, but I'll catch up as soon as I can.  You guys are posting some awesome shots this week!!    Best regards,  Linda

April 22, 2009    Emily doing a "double stag leap" (at least that is what she told me).  She does this leap during her lyrical routine.
September 7 2010 Chicago is My Kind of Town    In this night skyline shot you can see the Chicago River in the center, the famous S-Curve of Lake Shore Drive near the bottom and Monroe Harbor in the distance to the left.  I shot this looking South East from th 31st floor of Lake Point Tower.    Thank you so much for making my Raining Fire picture #1 yesterday.  I was fascinated by the observation that it reminded some people of a weeping willow tree.
June 30th  YOU'RE ONE IN A MILLION  My first attempt at selective coloring!  What fun!  Three tries and two hours...not bad for a beginner :-) Here's the unframed version for those that don't like the added dimension:  http://Mom4squirrels.smugmug.com/gallery/2452453_zuNLx#322255038_Fzncz  Today is our 7th anniversary...  This one is for you honey, because you ARE  "one in a million!"
14.11.08 - Escapism    Some days drive you mad, and then there was today! What could go wrong did go wrong, and what didn't go wrong didn't matter anyway. For the fifth week running my courier messed up and my brain exploded. I'm normally such a placid, philosophical and pragmatic guy, but repeated incompetence sometimes needs a rant to get the message across. Next Friday will tell whether or not the rant was worth it, I wait with baited breath.    You will have noticed from past Dailies that when I'm really p****d off I retreat into my head and beautiful high mountains. This is one of my favourite places, it has featured here before, but this is a new panoramic image that I created this evening to cheer myself up. This is Taweche Towers, at about 18,000', looking south across the Khumbu Valley in Nepal. Mount Everest is back over my left shoulder. Considerably less people have stood on the summit of Taweche Towers than have summitted Everest itself, this is a magical place. I wish I could take you all there.    And yes, I'm feeling much better now thanks :)
8-08: This was taken in front of a restaraunt along Harmony road in Fort Collins after dinner on our way to a movie. I drive by this little waterfall display every day on my way home from work and I've wanted to take some pictures here.
1-11: Saturday morning we drove up Highways 7 and did some hiking in Wild Basin. This is "Chapel on the Rock" built in 1935, part of Saint Malo Catholic Retreat off of Highway 7. I think it's a neat looking old chapel and it resides in a very beautiful setting. Behind is Mt. Meeker. As you can see, it was another very windy morning up in the mountains. A lot of snow was blowing off the mountain peaks.
