Monday, July 27th. Another from the Grounds for Sculptor, Hamilton, N.J. SOOC.
7-19: Saturday morning, while out shopping at garage sales, we happend upon a place called the Gardens at Spring Creek. It's a pretty little place and they have a pond with water lilies. This dragon fly (cross my fingers that it really is) was very cooperative (compared to others that I also thought were dragon flies). I took several pictures of it. This is one of my favorites - the color in the bg courtesy of some water lilies.
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

June 19...   This week we have the 27th annual Kite Festival on our island.  Our beach is so popular for the kite-people because we have the broad beach and a steady wind from the North Sea. About 8000 people have come from all over the world, some even come from New Zeeland, but Germans are the majority.  They send up about 15.000 kites. Quite an impressive view
PollenMaker-3503    Shot this today while on a break from mowing the yard.  I hate mowing so I keep the camera handy as a diversion just in case I run across anything interesting.  And, as luck would have it, I did.  I ran across a really cool looking grasshopper.  Unfortunately, he was a little too disfigured from the mower to be a much of a macro model - poor guy.  : (        Then I saw this pine flower on a low hanging branch and thought it might be an interesting subject for a closeup.    Shot handheld with the 70-200 and 36mm extension tube.  I'll likely try this again with the tripod, on a day with no wind, for a little more sharpness and DOF.
April 17, 2008    Looking for a handout.
Monday, May 16, 2011  "442 CUTLASS OLDSMOBILE" (pp version)  "It allows you to say things that sound very dramatic and get away with it. If you had characters in modern fiction say the same things as they're driving down the street in an Oldsmobile, they'd sound ludicrous." ~ Terry Goodkind  SOOC, uncropped  Here's another Lgood inspired automobile capture. This cobalt blue baby was one of my hubby's favorites in the show. Unfortunately, there was not an information card, but while we were at the car show, my hubby (who loves antique cars) informed me that this is a "442 Cutlass Olds." He also stated that the chrome on the rear bumper, in all likelihood, has been redone. You can see a glimpse of my black / white animal print jacket and red cape in the bumper. There was a chilly breeze and the temps had dropped to mid 50s. Yes, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped.   The original can be viewed here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/16609546_tdrqK#1274849706_xFHRmdP  Also, I did some research and according to Wikipedia, "The Oldsmobile 442 (pronounced four-four-two) was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. It was introduced as an option package for F-85 and Cutlass models sold in the United States beginning with the 1964 model year. It became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971, then reverted to an option through the mid-1970s. Oldsmobile revived the name in the 1980s on the rear-wheel drive Cutlass Supreme and early 1990s as an option package for the new front-wheel drive Cutlass." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_442)  Furthermore, I am overwhelmingly and humbly appreciative of your comments on yesterday's "Antique Chevy." It landed in the #2 spot.   Congrats to my friend sharkbayte whose "Clouds" pic was #1.  View it here:   http://sharkbayte.smugmug.com/Photography/2011-Daily-Photos/15280496_zofpQ#1291649048_zdNjmgz  Enjoy today; a "blue" Monday may not be so bad after all (smile).  ***#1 photo of the day and all time***  Show Your Ride Car Show  Memphis, TN  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com

October 16, 2010  "HARD ROCK'S ICONIC SYMBOL"   "f this house is rockin', don't bother knockin', come on in." ~ Stevie Ray Vaughn  SOOC (except the border, of course) - one from the archives   I'd never seen this iconic symbol photographed from this perspective......so, voila!!!!   Thanks a million for your comments.  Hard Rock Hotel  Biloxi, MS  ***top 5 photos today and all-time***  (photo taken June 2, 2008)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
09/07/09 - The boys and I went to a local private zoo yesterday called Noah's Landing.  This place is all about hands-on learning and interaction with the animals.  The NC Wildlife Rescue Center out of Sandford was onsite with some of their rescue birds, and this Great Horned Owl was amongst them.  I've only ever seen a Great Horned Owl in the wild once, and that was just a silhouette on a power line, so I was ecstatic to get to see one THIS CLOSE.      The boys and I had a superb time.  We got to touch an alligator, skunk, opossum and more.  We will go back!    I put up a blog post about our visit here:  http://maryanng.blogspot.com    Besides the great horned owl, they had a red-tailed hawk, a black vulture, a screech owl, and a barred owl.  Wow!      Thank you all so much for receiving my black swallowtail picture so well yesterday:-)  I took a picture of a red-spotted purple yesterday on the way to Noah's Landing, and that just might be tomorrow's POTD.     I hope you are enjoying the holiday!    Maryann
April 20, 2009 -  "Sign Of The Times" - This might be one way to use the remaining tangible assets of a failed bank.
1/19/09  AMERICAN GOLDFINCH (of course, details are better larger :-))  I'm still loving capturing birds on my little tree.  It's quite a challenge to get one sitting still long enough to capture it.  This was taken through the open kitchen window, leaning over the sink...freezing my fingers off...but well worth the pain and suffering. ;-)
June 11, 2008    Reflections of my world.     I was taking pictures of Gabe and his brother Gregory and this was the only one in the shot and the reflections I thought were kinda cool.    Just a note to all of you for your constant up lifting on my dailies. This is such a nice place to be everyday. I try to get something worthy everyday but just end putting up the best of what I took even if it isn't great technically it might be something special or meaningful. Oh well...I'll shut up now. Just wanted to say thanks.
The road less traveled is the best one. Shortly it turns to gravel and puts you next to the rivers edge where the foliage lights up the viewfinder. Wisconsin, the road to Strong Falls.

Thanks for making yesterday's photo go to the front page and all the awesome comments!!!! Paul Sr.
