2-05: Another from Monday evening. I was actually hurrying to get to another location and kinda liked the look here so I snapped off a few shots. I think it sorta looks like fall colors on the trees

Monday, June 4, 2012     "WHAT FLOATS YOUR BOAT?"  “O God, thy sea is so great, and my boat is so small.” ~ Author Unknown  SOOC, uncropped  "This small prayer (see the above quote) is known as the Breton Fisherman's Prayer, who are fishermen from Brittany, an administrative region in western France. The Breton Fisherman's Prayer was engraved on a brass plaque and presented to President John F. Kennedy by US Navy Admiral Hyman Rickover. The admiral would subsequently present the same type of plaque to all new commanders of Polaris submarines."   Additionally, "The Breton Fisherman's Prayer is not typically used by scouting groups such as the US branches of boy and girl scouts. Some Canadian girls associations have used this and/or variations of this in their printed material, as well as this prayer being the motto of the Children's Defense Fund." Reprinted texts from here: http://www.answers.com  SPEAKING OF SPORTS: Boston Celtics defeated Miami Heat in overtime last night in Boston. The final score was 93 - 91 and the series is tied 2 - 2. Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals will be tomorrow in Miami, FL. The family and I are pulling for Boston. Tonight, San Antonio Spurs host Oklahoma City Thunder in game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. The series is tied 2 - 2. The family and I are pulling for OKC!  I genuinely appreciate you taking time to peruse and comment on my photos; it has never gone unnoticed or taken for granted.

3-06: I was in a precarious position while taking this shot so I didn't get it framed quite the way I wanted. This is the keyhole in the Devils Backbone. You can see where it is in the picture I posted for 3-02. My nerve is not what it used to be.
Tuesday, June 12, 2012  "TIMELESS TULIPS" (The Metamorphosis)  "Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way." ~  Edward de Bono  What a difference a day makes!

Wednesday, December 29, 2010  "LET PEACEFUL WATERS FLOW"  "Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as the water from a fountain." ~ Lao-Tze, Ancient Chinese Philosopher  SOOC, uncropped, hand-held (no tripod)  Our youngest adult son suggested that I post this one.   A million thanks for the comments on yesterday's Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass art! You ladies and gentlemen are meticulously discerning; I wish I could meet each of you on my route during this lifetime.  Have a great day!

3rd year Pic 313 - Aug 26 2011  Magpie Robin  Khem Vilas, Ranthambhore    More pictures at   http://hershy.smugmug.com/Travel/Ranthambhore/RT-June-2011/17444320_Qps9C3    The magpie-robins or shamas (from shama, Hindi for C. malabaricus)[1] are medium-sized insectivorous birds (some also eat berries and other fruit) in the genera Copsychus and Trichixos. They were formerly in the thrush family Turdidae, but are more often now treated as part of the Old World flycatcher Muscicapidae.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magpie-robin
Friday, April 6, 2012       "WHAT IS IT?"  “Each of us, famous or infamous, is a role model for somebody, and if we aren't, we should behave as though we are -- cheerful, kind, loving, courteous; because you can be sure someone is watching and taking deliberate and diligent notes.” ~ Dr. Maya Angelou  Can you guess what this is? Special effects or not? Even I was amazed at how this turned out, as I was just playing around with various shots.  It does look like an abstract and a work of art, in my opinion. I will reveal its identity tomorrow; stay tuned.  I genuinely appreciate your comments on the table setting post yesterday; it landed in the #2 spot. Please know that I look forward to perusing and commenting on your outstanding photos, also. Each day, I am so honored to be a part of a community of people who share a like passion for photography.  Today is Good Friday and a day off for most people, including moi......woo hoo!!  Have a safe and blessed "Resurrection Weekend," my friends.  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 4/1/2012)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
August 27, 2011-Caught another Promachus - Giant Robber Fly in the field by some power line towers. I was actually looking for some dragon flies but never saw any. The winds started picking up over night. So I am going to post early while I still have power. Stay safe everyone.  (239:365)
South Rim View, Grand Canyon; best viewed in the largest sizes.  I appreciated the comments I received on the shot of the aloe buds.  Tremendous number of wonderful pics on smugmug today, although there is certainly not anything unusual about that.  However, I continue to be amazed by the talent and creativity displayed here.
