Friday, July 13, 2012  "FLOAT BOAT and CARNIVAL BOAT" (with Niijima Floats, Reeds, and Marlins) by Dale Chihuly  "Colour is life; for a world without colours appears to us as dead." ~ Johannes Itten  SOOC, uncropped  My FAVORITE in this exhibit and located in the infinity pool with a view of White Rock Lake in the background.......  An encounter with Dale Chihuly's works is always a spectacular reminder that glass is not just something to see through or drink out of. The glass work transforms the area into a wonderland of colors. This dramatic Chihuly exhibit offers a spectacular display of color and plenty of unique art forms around every corner.  "Chihuly first filled boats wit his glass elements in Nuutajarvi, Finland during the Chihuly Over Venice project in June 1995. After several days of glassblowing in the hotshop, the team made temporary installations along the Nuutajoki, the river nearby. Chihuly then filled it with Chandelier parts and other glass forms that were blown during the Finland trip." ~  Reprinted text from DA&BG's brochure  Artist's Statement.........."I've never done anything like the Floats. They are probably the most monumental-looking, since there's no reminiscence of a container shape. Just because they are so big, the Floats are technically, or let's say physically, the most difficult things that we have ever done. Even though a sphere or a ball is about the easiest form you can make in glass, when you get to this scale, up to forty inches in diameter, it becomes extremely difficult." ~ Dale Chihuly  Dale Chihuly's official website is www.chihuly.com  Oh Happy Friday!

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"?
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.
Wednesday, July 4, 2012  "RED, WHITE, BLUE..........and YOU"  "Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country." ~ John F. Kennedy, 35th President of the United States of America (USA)  Also, in front of the nearby courthouse were 98 "Flags of Heroes" - representative of veterans of their county. Photo is here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/23332140_T6MdZL#!i=1922274706&k=SmVm9Kp&lb=1&s=A  Independence Day honors the birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Thomas Jefferson, is the author of the Declaration of Independence. He led a committee that crafted the declaration between June 11-28, 1776. Jefferson and other discontented representatives from the thirteen colonies, voted and approved it on July 4, 1776. The document declared freedom for the 13 colonies from British rule. It currently resides in the Exhibition Hall of the National Archive in Washington, D.C. Did you know that The Declaration of Independence was not signed by all representatives until August, 1776. To make it official, John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress signed it. Now, can anyone guess where the saying "put your John Hancock on it" came from? Red, white, blue, and you............God bless America and its people!  Have a wonderful Wednesday and a safe 4th of July holiday.

THE QUEEN!!! (September 26, 2010)    She is such a beauty & is poised so delicately on this wildflower in North Texas.    Hope all the SmugMuggers enjoy this butterfly pic.  Found her while tromping around the woods near our house today.    Thanks for all the wonderful comments on the twins "swinging" shot last night.    Have a great Sunday evening.    I'll be back on the road tomorrow (a 7:20 a.m. flight from Dallas) and not back to Big D until Wednesday, October 6th.      But I'm taking my camera to Birmingham, AL and Louisville, KY.  I figure the Louisville portion of the trip may give me some opportunities for photographs.    I'll try to comment while I'm on the road, but won't be able to post pics.    Take care,    Best regards,    Linda
April 4, 2009 - "Doors and Stairs"
Sunday, July 28, 2013     "C" is for CHIHULY'S CENTERPIECE CLUSTERS  "I tend to do things on a huge scale because it's exciting. I like to push things in new and different ways," Chihuly said. "My philosophy is: when one is good, a dozen is better." ~ Dale Chihuly  SOOC, uncropped, flash fired  Photo submission for Donna McCommon's "Alphabet Challenge"  We recently took a quick break from our vacation in Arizona and drove to Las Vegas, NV. There have been numerous additions and attractions to the Las Vegas Strip (my favorite being City Center) since my first / last visit in 2006.  Also, I was torn between posting chimes, chocolate, cake, car, or Chihuly - but, of course, Chihuly won!  I've been an admirer of Dale Chihuly's glass art since viewing (at the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library & Museum in Little Rock, AR in 2006) the chandelier that he designed for the Clinton's Millennium Christmas at The White House. A photo of it is here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/11041770_4sVsXc#!i=772526419&k=9zCpKh3&lb=1&s=A  Furthermore, it's official name is "Clusters Persians Centerpiece," and it features Persian blown glass elements which are open, disc-like forms with striations (called “body wraps”). I had to quickly "point and shoot" in an effort to avoid people's heads being in the photo; as you can imagine, there were several admirers photographing this work of art. Although the lighting is very limited surrounding Chihuly's glass art, if you get to the area, take the time to peruse the artwork; it is beyond amazing.  Additionally, I must admit that although I prefer uploading and posting my photos in the order which they were taken, I delved into my "Vegas Baby, Vegas" 2013 gallery to post this one for Donna McCommon's "Alphabet Challenge" today. You'll be seeing my Las Vegas photos in future posts, but for now, you can view my complete "Vegas Baby, Vegas" 2013 gallery (minus the photos that are "in the can") here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/30144066_H5mkzM#!i=2633507079&k=DfBcTDh  Dale Chihuly's official website is here: www.chihuly.com  As always, I appreciate you taking the time to peruse and comment on my photos.  Finally, be blessed and share the rest!

A Mother's Love. I just love watching the interaction between the deer. This doe was cleaning one of her fawns. The other fawn was out of frame. He was cleaned shortly after she finished this one. The deer roam in our yards like a cat or dog would. So when I say they sleep in my yard, maybe I should say I live in their yard. As the woods are very thick in the park. The only thing I miss is open sky. Day 7 (2011.01.07) #365Project @sharkbayte
July 8, 2010    Hey All!    After a couple of days on the road for business  and no opportunity to shoot photos -  I was fortunately able to get out and take some pictures this afternoon late before the sun went down.      This is a picture of the beautiful butterfly that I spotted.  (Chika or Papa - help me with the name of this beauty?)       Post script - Chika says this is a "Queen" butterfly.  Chika rocks - she knows her butterflies.  Thanks Chika.    This beauty was sitting on a wildflower out in a field near my house.  It was a difficult shot to get because the wind was blowing so hard that the flower stalk was swaying backwards and forwards pretty violently the whole time I was trying to take the photo.  But I got lucky on this one when the wind died for just a second.  Otherwise, I have maybe 2 more good pictures of the queen, and the rest are blurry due to the high winds.      There's a hair of a crop on this picture, but it's very tiny.  I just got lucky on this shot.     We've been having high winds & late afternoon/evening thunderstorms here, so this was a lucky catch.  With all the storms around my trip to & from Minnneapolis was fraught with delays.  I finally got home last night around 1:30 a.m.  Makes for a long day - but I'm very happy to have a job.  :)    Thanks to everyone for your kind comments on my photos - even though I've been off line for several days.    Have a great Friday tomorrow,    Linda    This photograph is protected by the U.S. Copyright Laws and shall not to be downloaded or reproduced by any means without the formal written permission of L Good - noelxgood@sbcglobal.net
October 5, 2009 - "Grand Teton Sunrise"    Our first day in Jackson, Wyoming we left the hotel at 630 am to get some sunrise shots.  It was cold and dark waiting for the sun to appear first on the mountains and then on this barn.  There was some light smoke in the air from area controlled burns.    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia  Mormon Row Historic District  Mormon Row is a line of homestead complexes along the Jackson-Moran Road near the southeast corner of Grand Teton National Park. The rural historic landscape's period of significance includes the construction of the Andy Chambers, T.A. Moulton and John Moulton farms from 1908 to the 1950's. Six building clusters and a separate ruin illustrate Mormon settlement in the area and comprise such features as drainage systems, barns, fields and corrals.  The district occupies a spectacular site in Jackson Hole with the Teton Range rising in the background.
October 17, 2013  As I've said before, I love Aspen trees.  I would have loved to have been in Colorado at the time of their leaves turning that brilliant, golden yellow color.  Nevertheless, I enjoyed them in their late summer stage too.  I loved that this stand was so thick & I could see deep into their world and find their unique markings far from the front set of trees.  This thick stand of Aspens brought to mind many of Bev Doolittle's prints.  I am a big fan of Bev Doolittle.  This shot reminded me most of her "Sacred Ground" print.  Also, the triptych "Two More Indian Horses" (which hangs in my living room).  I would highly recommend that you google her Sacred Ground Print, and I think you'll see why this shot put me in mind of that piece of art.  Have a strong and steady day!  Linda
04/20/10 - Bachelor Buttons Shot on NC 200 about 20 miles North of Monroe.  I saw them on the way into town on Saturday but was out of time to stop.  So, on the way out of town yesterday, I was determined to find a spot to pull over and take some pics.  They were only growing in a small 3 miles stretch of road, and many of the spots were on a curve, no wide shoulder or otherwise safe place to pull over.  Finally I found a spot and on top of the bachelor buttons, there were these yellow flowers in the field too.  Wheat growing around them both, I was able to snap quite a few pics as the boys entertained themselves with their DVD.  I have some shots with the bachelor buttons set against just green and some with the background more a yellow blur vs. retaining some of the yellow flower detail like this shot does.  What a joy to find, see, and take pics of.  Thanks to those of you that stopped by to view my pics over the weekend and to leave comments and say hi.  I really appreciate your support.  I only got about 30 minutes a day at the computer due to all I was trying to accomplish at Dad's house while I was there.  I can be content about what I did, but much more to do like find someone to blow the roof, clean the gutters, and power wash the front and back porches and windows.  I will start churning through the pile of paperwork I brought back with me too.    Dad continues to improve each day.  He wants to come home immediately.  We, me and 4 of the rehab facility people, talked him into being patient another week (or two).  Trying to set up some help at the house for him so coming home might work.    So much to do.  Where to begin?!?  HAGD, Maryann

"1955 FORD FAIRLANE TOWN SEDAN"

“Vision without execution is just hallucination.” ~ Henry Ford

Here's my very 1st HDR pp image........best viewed in XLarge!!

A special thanks to Lgood's husband Bill (owner of a Ford Fairlane) who stated that this is "a 1955 (maybe a '66) but nearly certain it is a '55."

This multi-colored Ford Fairlane Town Sedan was my favorite in the show. I love the bright colors that changed depending upon the angle from which it was viewed. If you look real close, you will see reflections galore in this one, most notably a red Chevy pickup that was parked beside it.

According to Wikipedia, "The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model sold between 1955 and 1970 by the Ford Motor Company in North America. The name was taken from Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan. Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-size car but became a mid-size car from the 1962 model year. The mid-sized model spawned the Australian-built Fairlane in 1967, although it was considered a large car there." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Fairlane_Americas)
