Boats on the Velikaya River bank. (6.11.2011)  Sorry I didn't have time to comment yesterday. Hope everyone has a relaxing weekend.
1-23: Quite a dramatic view of the out house near River Bend ponds. I never posted the color version but I like the B&W better. It looks like it's out in the middle of nowhere but actually it's pretty close to the parking lot - I have to walk passed it to get back to my car. This was taken shortly after sundown a couple of weeks ago.
This is Willie, my neighbor's cat. Willie is 13 years old and has a mean streak in him. He will let you pet him, but, only three times and then he attacks you. His owner can't even pet him. And apparently Willie has a great memory. Day 16:365 @sharkbayte  I am hoping Wilie stays up on the board this time around. Seems he has been removed a few times already. He's really a nice cat! I swear!
April 25, 2008    Swinging Bridge at Tishomingo, Built in 1939 -     I shot this same bridge about a year ago, and have always liked the pic, but was never really satisfied with it...I'm happier now-    edit: the other shot.  &nbsp
3-18-2010...  Just Squeezin' Green
April 24, 2008    The Tennessee River and the Natchez Trace-    And, we had a little more light for tonight's game...enough for an alternate pic-  Check out the tongue-
09/25/09 - I was working at my computer yesterday when I noticed that there was a lot of condensation on the outside of my water bottle.  One thing lead to another, and I came up with this shot.  There's a flashlight behind the bottle that has a lot of little tiny light bulbs in it.  The water droplets took on the pattern of the bulbs.  I turned it b&w, cropped it, and fixed a bad spot on the water bottle that was distracting.  It's different...certainly in my daily gallery next to yesterday's vivid Halloween color shot!  Work was just horrible yesterday.  I hope I get to spend more time with my kids and my camera today.    Thank you all for the feedback on yesterday's glass shot.  You're a great inspiration to me to keep pushing to come up with something even more creative and pretty.    Happy Friday! Maryann  While I wasn't fully awake this morning, I put the caption under the keywords.  Thankfully, I discovered my error and was able to copy the text instead of having to rewrite it.
FEB.9,2012   The Shadow challenge for Paula!    It's an early post due to my work schedule. I've been working on these captures all week and I love some of neighborhood homes with tree shadows on them , but my "red" always wins out for me.
May 26,,,   I love this green weed and the toad stools.
Taking Flight  I am travelling to Donegal today. Going there for a family get-together. I will be gone until Monday. My mum does not have broadband so I will not be able to upload or comment until my return.  Day 91: May 19, 2010
July 6:  Mr Spidey Yes I know, ooohhh youck a bug :).  I was out looking for a pod, had my 18-200 on and was prowling the neighborhood.  I found nothing spectacular, just a few shot.  Most of the flowers are dead now due to the excessive heat and the lack of water we have had.  I had found a whole 4 shots which were not much when I spotted this guy on the weeping cherry in my front yard.  I went in the house and got the 105 macro and the R1 flash rig.  I set the flash units on the ring at 0 EV and -1.3 EV and went out.  He was still there so I fired away.  I took about 30 shots to get a few good ones.  He was a fast moving little guy and I chased him around the tree while he was spinning his web.  In the end he stopped and was doing some furious work with the front legs and then disappeared.  When I looked he was on the ISO knob of the camera checking me out.  He is only the size of the thumbnail on my little finger so he is small.  I did crop the shot for less leave and better view.  I added +5 black and +16 clarity in Lightroom.

Went to my friends today and caught this little squirrel peeping out of one of her squirrel boxes.
6.4.09 - It's the small things again......  I'm feeling really rough today, a bug has taken up residence in my sinuses and throat. At least I'm hoping it's a bug and not allergies, because allergies in April doesn't bear thinking about! I went for a walk in the Nature Reserve near home at lunchtime in an attempt to clear my head. It worked nicely, apart from the frustration of chasing the first butterflies of the year and not even getting close to a shot. There aren't many wild flowers out yet, but if you look closely enough there is always beauty for those who seek it out. I'm so pleased with this shot, hand held in shaky hands, with a strong breeze blowing, and a 200mm lens that pretends to be a macro on a good day.   Thanks for the comments on my comedy geese yesterday. I tend to agree with Stephonie that I was too aggressive with the vignette, another lesson learnt :)  Lovers of poetry might want to check out my Monday Challenge entry here;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/7093288_hSxt4#506641924_RCAAZ
