September 10, 2011    Remember the story that I talked about yesterday where we ran into the rain storm and then came into the little town of Encino, NM and chased the train?  Well here is one of the shots of the train & a lightening strike.      We were parked within about 40 feet from the track that was elevated above the road we were sitting on.  The train was racing by and I was snapping photos.      It was raining pretty hard by this time, and I took lots of shots of the train out of the windshield of the car.  I was lucky enough to catch a lightening strike on this shot.  The sound was deafening.      This is not the best quality photo in the world, but I liked the way it turned out with the lightening, the train car and the dark sky.    Thanks so much for your wonderful and overwhelming comments on the road in New Mexico shot from yesterday.  That "road" shot was a precurser to this shot for today.    You guys rock!!!    I'm home today & part of tomorrow then  have to go to Austin TX for a week long class at the University of Texas.  I'll do my best to keep up with commenting on your wonderful photos.  I'm sure that will be WAY more fun than the homework we'll be expected to do in the evenings.  :-)).    Have a great day!  Linda
5-05: It's that time of year! This last couple of weeks we've been seeing baby geese everywhere. They grow so quickly - I think these are probably only about a week old.
Thursday, February 2, 2012  "SUNNY SIDE UP"  "Be a rose which gives fragrance, even to those who crush it. ~ Author Unknown  SOOC comes this yellow rose of...........Arizona, and not Texas:)!   According to history, yellow is  a bright, sunny color that evokes a feeling of warmth and happiness. Akin to those shared with a true friend are the warm feelings associated with the yellow rose. It is also an ideal symbol for joy and friendship, in contrast to the romantic meanings attributed to other roses. Additionally, yellow roses can send the perfect message of appreciation and platonic love without the romantic subtext of other colors. Joy and delight are representative of the color yellow and an ideal way to brighten someone's day who may be feeling down.  Finally, a yellow rose can bring out the smile in quite a way that no other flower can.   I sure do thank you all for your comments; they are very much appreciated.  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday.

Parachutists Before the Game - at the Air Force/Army game Saturday, a pre-game performance by parachutists from the Air Force Academy and West Point.  The man with the flag is a retired Air Force parachutist and a double amputee, who lost both legs in a mid-air collision with his partner, who died in the accident.  The other parachutist in this shot is a West Point cadet.  Please view this image in the largest sizes to see the detail of the parachutists, including the prothestics of the man with the flag.  I was amazed at the response to my shot of part of our yard during a recent snowstorm.  You all have made me consider using it as our Christmas card this year.  Hope everyone has a good day today!
Embrace the light.    Wow, thanks everyone so much for all the wonderful comments yesterday it is so encouraging.
For Aug. 10,   These beauties are from the university gardens. Are they gardenias, do you think...
Sunday, July 1, 2012     "SPEARMINT SEAFORM SET with CINNAMON RED LIP WRAPS" by Dale Chihuly (2001)  "One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the BEAUTY of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple." ~ Psalm 27:4, The Bible (KJV), visit Bible Gateway @ www.biblegateway.com  SOOC comes this hand blown glass, measuring 10 x 21 x 12 inches. Everyone knows that I absolutely LOVE Dale Chihuly's glass art. If art is the expression of imagination, then Dale and I both dream in very vivid colors.   "The Seaforms seemed to come about by accident, as much of my work does—by chance. We were experimenting with some ribbed molds when I was doing the Basket series. By blowing the pieces into ribbed molds, it gave them more strength. It's sort of like corrugated cardboard—or actually, like sea shells themselves, which are very often ribbed. Then the Baskets started looking like sea forms, so I changed the name of the series to Seaforms, which suited me just fine in that I love to walk along the beach and go to the ocean. And glass itself, of course, is so much like water. If you let it go on its own, it almost ends up looking like something that came from the sea." ~ Dale Chihuly, Artist  Dale Chihuly's official website is www.chihuly.com  Have a blessed day, my friends.

Another shot of Mr.Grumpy!
081010  Trap Pond Turtles    I finally got the kayak I bought over the winter in the water. I was a bit nervous taking the camera out on the water but we did ok. I was able to drift in on these turtles and got within about 5 feet. I need to learn how to stabilize the boat and camera but I was happy with my first attempt.
28.12.10 - Through the Looking Glass  This is a shot from early evening in the fog. I love shooting in fog at night, with the wet cobbles reflecting all the lights, but it gets very hard to find new perspectives in an area you know so well. I've done this 2/3s split in a shop window before, but hopefully the bleach bypass treatment gives it a different feel. The original is here with a few more shots from this evening;    http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/gallery/4222541_LCXPH#1139857573_5JP5r  I'm already wondering if this would work well for the new Dgrin Challenge theme "Glass"?

Remember the story that I talked about yesterday where we ran into the rain storm and then came into the little town of Encino, NM and chased the train? Well here is one of the shots of the train & a lightening strike.

We were parked within about 40 feet from the track that was elevated above the road we were sitting on. The train was racing by and I was snapping photos.

It was raining pretty hard by this time, and I took lots of shots of the train out of the windshield of the car. I was lucky enough to catch a lightening strike on this shot. The sound was deafening.

This is not the best quality photo in the world, but I liked the way it turned out with the lightening, the train car and the dark sky.

Thanks so much for your wonderful and overwhelming comments on the road in New Mexico shot from yesterday. That "road" shot was a precurser to this shot for today.

You guys rock!!!

I'm home today & part of tomorrow then have to go to Austin TX for a week long class at the University of Texas. I'll do my best to keep up with commenting on your wonderful photos. I'm sure that will be WAY more fun than the homework we'll be expected to do in the evenings. :-)).

Have a great day!
