April 14, 2011-Hiding out.  While, I was coming around the back of the house I saw 6 cats scatter. This guy is the littlest cat from the group. (Day 104:365 @sharkbayte)
July 5, 2006 - Self-portrait in the rain. I have done the other side in the rain , so I thought of looking in this time ! Tripod, interval timer set, jumped into the car, and made a sad face - I don't know which part was more difficult. Of course, now it all too much reminds me of Sebastian's self-portait, so my subconscious must have been influenced !S- I couldn't find yours to link !thanks  A closer crop without the sideview mirror here
17.04.10 - White Riot  Wood Anemones in Skellingthorpe Old Wood. On a beautiful sunny day I had my first proper wildflower walk of the year. The wood anemones formed a beautiful white carpet in many places, but the bluebells are late this year.

Tuesday, March 27, 2012      "HUMPTY DUMPTY" by  Kimber Fiebiger   "Love all; trust a few; do wrong to none." ~ Author Unknown   And the nursery rhyme goes like this............  'Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall:  Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.  All the King's horses and all the King's men  Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.'  Well, Kimber Fiebiger of Minneapolis, Minnesota made this delightful sculpture because she, "Just loves to put a smile on people's faces." Looks like Humpty Dumpty has been put back together again and is back on his throne, which I hope brings a smile to your face.   Kim's official website is here: http://www.joanofart.com/?page_id=30  In the words of a great gospel song by Donnie McClurkin, "We fall down, but we get up!"   Actually, Oprah Winfrey may have said it best: "If you should happen to fall, turn your wounds into wisdom."  Finally, this is the last of the public art series in Mesa, AZ. Thank you for your appreciation and patience.  A few more public art pieces can be viewed here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/20517416_FzGW22#!i=1656884744&k=fw75TPW  Have a "well put together" and terrific Tuesday, my friends.  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 12/28/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com

Tuesday, January 25, 2011  "PULLING STRAWS?"  "Remember when looking in the mirror, it is always looking back at you; the reflections seen are only ever as kind or as ill as your own projections." ~ Morrigan  I didn't have to pull straws for this one.......woo hoo!!!   This is MY FIRST PP'd IMAGE (focal b/w, uncropped, however). I stepped outside of my comfort zone. Furthermore, I am such a "visual" person. On Sunday, after creating yesterday's POTD using marbles and the mirror, I decided to see what image I could create with straws and the mirror.  Too much time on my hands? Well, all work and no play....... you know what they say.  I am overwhelmingly appreciative of your comments regarding yesterday's "Marbelicious" photo. It landed in the #8 spot.     The original version of the photo can be viewed here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/15299231_BkGGq#1168324428_2gjWC  SmugMuggers rock!!!!!!  ***#6 photo of the day and all time****  (photo taken and pp'd on 1/23/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
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
Vertigo, anyone?    Trying to break out of the norm and see things from a new perspective.  This is a relatively new pedestrian bridge that crosses the Eno River and leads into the city park where all of my festival shots have come from.  This was the first time I crossed this bridge so I wanted to capture a few photos to mark the occasion.  Not content with a straight-on approach, I wondered what it would look like if I hung upside down from the top.  It probably goes without saying, but it was much harder to compose a decent shot than I expected. ;-)    Edit: It seems many have missed my little winkie there at the end.  I did NOT actually hang from the top.  I just wondered what it would look like if I had.  The difficulty was in getting the comp I wanted to make the shot look convincing.  This was shot standing on my own two feet, then the image was flipped in post.  While trying to compose this I was wishing for an inverted view, like the old view cameras.
Monday, July 2, 2012  "COBALT MARLINS and TRUMPET FLOWER FIORI" by Dale Chihuly (2009)  "I'm very interested in transformation and how objects are transformed. Reflected images will become as substantial as real works. It's not about the object; it's about form, color, light and shape." ~ Therman Statom, American Studio Glass artist  I absolutely love color; and Dale Chihuly's glass art is full of it! I wish I could click my heels together and be transported to every city in the world where his art is exhibited and take photos. Wishful thinking?    Well, here's a SOOC (no flash) shot of the centerpiece of attention measuring 96 x 96 x 96 inches; it is MY FAVORITE in this exhibit of hand blown glass among his current exhibits. Dale Chihluy, the artist, describes it as "a visual feast of exuberant color and daring form - brilliant, indoor garden created with blown glass flowers and daring verticals that reach almost nine feet above their base."   Additionally, thank you for your comments on the "Spearmint Seafoam Set with Cinnamon Red Lip Wraps" yesterday. Each day, there are superlative photos posted in this community. Although my time perusing and commenting on photos is very limited this summer, I genuinely appreciate you taking time to peruse and comment on mine. It has never gone unnoticed or taken for granted.   Disclaimer: Although I post what I like (emphasis on "I"), I'll try not to bore you; there's more photos of Dale Chihuly's glass art forthcoming:).  Dale Chihuly's official website is www.chihuly.com  Have a marvelous Monday.  Dale Chihuly: "Recent Works and New Forms" Exhibit" 2012 Talley Dunn Gallery 5020 Tracy Street Dallas, Texas 75205  ***#2 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken June 29, 2012)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Orange to Purple, Lake Sam Rayburn TX    The colors of sunset never cease to amaze me.  I love to watch the colors unfold even when the sky is lifeless without clouds.  Add some water lapping at my feet and a breeze carrying the sound of the waves and it's a paradise.      This is a single 3 minute exposure taken just a few minutes after sunset.  I used a 3 stop soft step graduated neutral density filter to reduce the exposure above the horizon by three stops.  I also used a 5 stop neutral density filter to get a really long exposure, creating the long exposure effect on the water and allowing the colors of the sunset to unfold as the exposure carried on.    It's HELP-PORTRAIT time again!  Help Portrait is a global community of photographers that set aside one day to make portraits for people in need.  This year it will be December 8.  Right now we're in fundraising mode.  If you'd like to donate $10.00 through "this groupon page your $10.00 will be matched by WACOM.  If you just want to get involved head over to www.help-portrait.com    I participated in Help Portrait last year in Columbia MO and it was a very inspiring experience.  I highly recommend you join a local group or start one if there isn't one in your area.  I for one will be calling the portrait studios here in Nacogdoches to get some volunteers and a volunteer studio space.    Critiques always welcome.

8/14/12 - Rufous Hummingbird, best viewed in the largest size.  I spent some time yesterday shooting hummers.  Does anyone know how Phil Nix is?  I've tried to find out but haven't learned anything.  I know he was ill and I'm worried, as he has not posted in a long time.  Thanks so much for your encouragement and critique of my shot of the old bikes.  Much appreciated.  Constructive criticism is always welcome.  Have a good day, my friends!
Zebra coming at ya...    I find these animals facinating. I have had a terrible time trying to get a decent shot of them. Trying to hold the camera steady when your on a wagon and not only is it bouncing all around but so is the zebra.
