6/06/11 Meet Bracken - Bracken is a Tawny owl and lives with his partner Willow in the barn you can see reflected in his eyes. These are the owls whose famous call is shared between them ' Toowit - hoo'   Many thanks to everyone who commented on the shot of Fern yesterday and special thanks to Sandra for introducing me to her wonderful barn and it's inhabitants. I'm currently working through my day's photos which are slowly uploading to http://nixpix.me/Vacation/North-East-Norfolk-All-in-a/17394177_zB9Sjx
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.” ~ 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 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)
December 21, 2010  "ROCKIN' AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE"  “He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.”  ~ Roy L. Smith  Today is the first day of winter. We spent last Christmas in Arizona (December 24-31, 2009) at the "home away from home" (aka "My Happy Place") and I photographed this gorgeous tree at one of the resorts while admiring all of its Christmas decor.  Thanks for your views and comments. SmugMuggers, you rock!

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.  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken June 29, 2012)
Monday, February 27, 2012       "EARLY SPRING BLOSSOMS AND BUDS"  (Japanese Magnolias)    "One of the most attractive things about the flowers is their beautiful reserve."  ~ Henry David Thoreau       First of all, I genuinely appreciate your comments on my "Red Baron Squadron" aircraft photo yesterday; it landed in the #1 (numero uno) spot. There are always outstanding posts in this community, and I never take for granted that you take the time to peruse and comment on mine. SmugMuggers rock!!!    Additionally, two days ago, I mentioned that it's been a while since I've been able to get out and take new photos. Well, yesterday evening, my hubby noticed these blooms on a tree in our backyard. The other day, I noticed that there were only buds. Isn't it amazing the changes that can occur in a few days?  Once temperatures start warming up, Japanese Magnolias on this tree always wave goodbye to winter by launching an impressive display of large, pinkish flowers.     Anyway, I grabbed my camera and took only two quick snaps; and we both liked this one best, as it shows off the flowers and buds against that deep blue evening sky. Finally, I was so elated to have the camera back in my hands:).    "Come and visit me sometime; my flowers would like to meet you." ~ Unknown Author    Happy Monday, my friends!    ***#2 photo of the day and all-time***    (photo taken 2/26/2012)
"The Boy in the Bubble" - song by Paul Simon.  This is the redone version of this.  I took a new photo of a bubble and, instead of cutting out the bubble and putting it on a different background, this time I kept the bubble and the background intact.  All I did was add the boy.  If you look at it in the largest sizes, you'll see the reflections in the bubble now reflect the actual setting in which it was taken --- although you'll see the pine trees in my garden, which do not actually show in the background itself.  You can also see that there are reflections both in front of and behind the boy.  Having done all that, I'm not sure this is really that great an image.  The boy does not pop out at you.  You have to look carefully for him.  However, I think this may be about as good a job as I can do on this idea.  I'd appreciate your thoughts regarding whether I  should enter this or the great balls of fire shot that I posted on the dailies two days ago.  Thanks, as always, for your comments, which I value a lot.  I did learn quite a bit doing this little project and that, of course, is never wasted effort.  Have a great day everyone!  My hubby and I are going up to Denver to help our daughter put up drywall in her new ballet studio.
A shot of a piano in our home. Its a beautiful piece of furniture to bad I can't  play it,,,,, The company I found went out of business during the Great Depression I have been told the piano dates back to approx 1915 to 1920. Just a neat piece to have a round. Have a great day everyone. And Thank You for all the great comments you all put up daily...
You know I had to let you see both of them!! They are just the cutest and sweetest little babies!! Both have a full tummy and are tucked in for the night.    Thanks so much for all the comments on the one baby...Unfortunetly I have alot going on right now,so I may be letting my friend take care of this pair. I haven't decided yet.    Hope all the Moms had a great day!!
December 6, 2010    Hello everyone - I didn't expect to be posting tonight, or this week at all because I was scheduled to be in Northern California all week; however, due to an unforeseen event, the trip was cancelled and so I am home this week, and the NoCal trip will be rescheduled sometime next year.  I'm home  and happy!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's nice to be home after all my travels over the last several weeks.  Road warriers need to restore the batteries at home some, and that's what I'm doing!!!!  YAY!    This is a  custom car and I don't know what it started life as, but it was a real beauty.  The rainbow colored paint was amazing.  As you walked around the car it would change in color from black to dark midnight blue then to medium blue  and then almost a tourquoise color, then it would shift again to a light maroon and a red.  There were several other color changes in between too.  It's hard to describe all the color variations.  It was at a car show and as you can see it was sprinkling rain and I felt sorry for the owners who were trying to keep their cars wiped down and dry.  I liked the rain drops on the car and the reflection of the other car beside it.  The beauty of the colors are best viewed in X3    Have a great evening Smugmuggers.    Linda
11-07-09 A thousand worlds    I finally take the time to process a series of "spider webs in the mist" that have these wonderful droplets. The colors in the background come from autumn leaves. This one was taken when the Sun began to shine through the mist.     Almost no processing here (just slightly enhanced contrast and sharpened)...
Fire in the Sky  October 2009  Another day in southwest Montana and another gorgeous sunrise to share.  This little cabin is a favorite of mine and I photograph it whenever I visit Big Sky Country. That is an outhouse on the left.  This is about as rustic as it gets in the 21st century.
6/18/2012 A wipe out. Thanks for the comments on Sundays photo.  I was a good day butt in the sand feet in the ocean and camera in hand. A swell 2-4 feet wind out of the NE 13 mph swell period 12s. Hope all you Dads had a good day.  Back to work be safe.

Wednesday, July 27, 2011       "GLOWS OF GRATITUDE"    "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross     Remember yesterday's pic? Well, these are views of the solid colored glass windows on each of the three entry doors to the chapel (from the inside). I pp'd this one; it's my 31st remix.    My nephew attends this SEC university and is pursuing a degree in kinesiology; he's doing quite well, and loves it! It is one of the top SEC universities in Mississippi and the prettiest SEC university campus I've toured.  Also, the campus spirit is pleasant, warm, friendly, and accepting of various nationalities and ethnicities. The official website is here: http://www.msstate.edu. and the complete gallery of campus photos are in the "Colleges/Universities" album.     Thanks so much for your views and comments on my "Angel" post yesterday. I thoroughly enjoy perusing and commenting on your fabulous pics, also.     It's hump day; have a great one!!
