May 2:  Leaf: It was windy here last evening when I was doing the POD and we found this bunch of leaves on the back deck when we out to get something.  THought I could make something of this so I brought it in to try.  Very late last night I had an idea when taking shots and this the result.   This is not a crop, but a full shot with my macro.  I lit the leave with one SB200 flash (small) from the rear at a 45 degree angle to the leave to get this effect.  The veining on the rear popped with this lighting. EXIF: D200 on a tripod ISO 125 1/160 sec, f/9.0 +1/3 EV single R1 SB200 flash

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  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.

June 30...    A 250 year old house of a sea captain. The two dogs in the window have a special meaning: When they were looking out of the window the husband were at sea, when looking into the house he was at home and her special friends should stay away.
December 5, 2009 Daily Photo.  The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.   It was supposed to snow but it was raining. I took lots of close-ups but I think this best shows the scale. I'll make a "Christmas In New York" gallery when I get a chance.

Monday, July 21, 2008  (day 52)  Went to Eastern State Penitentiary with friends who can't join the SmugMug group on August 13th.  Plus, I filled out a survey on the way out and I have 4 free passes for the SmugMug group!  It was soooo hot and humid.  It was fun to shot there, I think (hope) I learned alot from my mistakes, don't you just love digital!!!
Pour Dominique - Jun 5 2009  An agility friend left us today... quite suddenly. We will remember her as a good person who had an incredible will to overcome the setbacks life threw at her health wise. She loved her dogs and our sport tremendously and will be missed... it's so strange and beyond comprehension to realize that someone you saw last week isn't there anymore.  In her spirit I choose for a white rose... have a safe journey Dominique.
Trust    DP135-2013  Posted May 15; processed ditto    Songbirds in the woods around the Nature Center have learned to trust humans who hold out food for them in their hands.  (Signs along the trails politely ask people to feed the birds ONLY by hand, not to put food on the ground for them, and NOT to feed the cranes.)  On the last day of my sister's visit, we walked in these woods and fed the birds.  Feeling their almost negligible weight and the tiny prick of their claws as they land and daintily snatch the chosen seed is a pleasure beyond description.    Kensington Metropark, Milford Township, MI  May 14, 2013  (For those who care, but don't yet know, this was a tufted titmouse.)

05/24/10 - Sitting Pretty I took this butterfly shot at the Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh yesterday.  In conversation, I always refer to this place as The Dinosaur Museum.  They boast Willow the dinosaur with a heart, a giant ground sloth, a T-Rex skull, and the best Acrocanthosaurus specimen found to date.  Started in 1851, this 'new' version free to the public makes for a great place to spend some time on a rainy Sunday afternoon.  Although much smaller that the Butterfly House at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, their butterfly display is also very enjoyable, and that's where I took this picture.  Ya gotta know that I would have given anything back at home to somehow remove that man out of my shot!  But the clarity of the butterfly and especially his eye which can be best appreciated at larger sizes made this my POTD anyway.    In other news at the museum, we saw the sloth climb his rope!  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Marbles-Kids-Museum/Marbles-Kids-Museum-052310/12288787_HT48s#876709398_j7Quc You know, about every 4th or 5th visit he might actually open an eye or move a few inches, but yesterday he traveled 10 feet!  The gallery with all the pictures from yesterday's trip to the Natural Sciences museum and Marbles Kids Museum (yes, I was there too!) are here:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Marbles-Kids-Museum/Marbles-Kids-Museum-052310/12288787_HT48s#876670249_jbVVX  Thank you all for your comments yesterday especially the really nice ones about Johnny's portrait...

January 24, 2010 - "Sunday Morning Fog"  Last Sunday morning I looked outside and there was heavy fog.  So I quickly dressed and drove a couple miles to a barn that I have been wanting to shoot in heavy fog.  The barn sits on a hill and there was not enough fog to even get out of the car and try a shot.  So, on the way home I stopped by some horse property on the low land around Bear Creek.  None of the horses were out but I did get this photo.  April 25, 2010 - This photo was the second place winner in the Scenics category of the juried 2010 Bob Jones Nature Center Photography Contest in Southlake, Texas.  There were six categories and the photos had to be shot in our local area Ecosystem

January 31, 2010 - "Last Train To Ft. Worth"

This was shot last Sunday at the historic Grapevine, Texas railroad station. I was checking out a Lake Grapevine marina for photo ops but did not see anything I liked. On the way home I noticed there were not many cars parked at the railroad station, so took the opportunity to shoot.That makes two Sundays in a row that my alternate venue has worked out :)

Tourist trains run from Grapvine to the historic Ft. Worth Stockyards.
