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 :)
  Wide Angle Dusty ~ Hey whatcha doin down there?     Needed some fun and smiles today so broke out the wide angle...  didn't take long to realize Dusty made for a pretty funny distorted subject :-) Note I've been offline so catchin up today & added 5 new pics. Jan 18, 2007
180 24th Oct  Petronas Towers     Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   Shot hand held with D200 & 18-70mm. No PP.     The Petronas Twin Towers (also known as the Petronas Towers or Twin Towers), in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia were the world's tallest buildings, before being surpassed by the Taipei 101. However, the towers are still the tallest twin buildings and office building in the world.     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petronas_Twin_Towers    www.javeri.net

September 27, 2009 SHE MADE IT!!!!    Proud Mom moment here. Yesterday Emily went to the call-back auditions for the Moscow Ballets Nutcracker. They were calling the girls back in twos to dance again in front of the Russian instructor. There were a few girls she had remembered enough that they did not have to audition again. Emily was one of them. She has a part dancing in The Coffee Dance (arabian). There will be 5 performances the weekend of November 20th, 21st and 22nd at the Majestic Theater in Dallas. I am so proud of her. She starts rehearsals next Saturday
Do Ya Really Wanna Get Any Closer?  Just before the supermarket escapade I recounted a couple of days ago, as I got out of my car in the parking lot, a car pulled in beside me and this guy was poking his head out the window.  I had my fisheye lens on the camera and asked his owner if I could take his picture.  She actually had another great dane in the car and it was poking its head out the driver side window.  The woman had almost no room for herself.  Both dogs were barking but they were very sweet when you held out your hand to be sniffed.  Really gorgeous dogs!  Anyway, this was MY "close encounter of the third kind."  I'm posting this early and going to bed, as I have a wedding to shoot tomorrow morning and I must get an early start.  Have a great Saturday!
Morning sunrise in the fog going 70 mph on our way home.
Maggie can fly!  My daughter teaches ballet and gives pilates classes at her own studio in Denver, which is co-located with the Denver Dance Center.  A few weeks ago, the center which has only been in existence for a bit over a year, had its first performance.  Maggie is an young adult who still loves to dance and can, obviously, still perform.  Flash was not allowed during the performance and I sat way over on one side, but I managed to catch this shot of her during one of her leaps.  Thanks so much for the comments on my latest Grand Canyon shot.  I'm still processing those shots.  I think I have about eight folders of shots and I've processed only about one and a half.  I'm really enjoying it and it is making me think I want to go back to the Grand Canyon and spend more time there.  So many places, so little time...  Have a grand weekend and Halloween!
March 10, 2011    Up close & personal with a real classic beauty.  I'm sorry I didn't get the details on this lovely car, but I was too enthralled with it to snap a photo of the tag.  I really loved the colors and the reflections in the front fenders were amazing.  One of my all time favorites, and that's high praise for as many classic cars as I've seen.    Hope you all enjoy, and that this beauty brings you a happy smile today.      Thanks to everyone for your very kind comments on my photos over the last few days.  I'm still on the road, and working hard.  I've not been able to comment as much as I'd like to and enjoy all of your wonderful photos, but the plan is to get caught up this weekend.    Have a good one!    Linda
