Reflections in a Wheel; best viewed in the larger sizes.  This particular reflection was one of my favorite takeaways from the car show!    Thanks for your comments on the shot of the father with the little girl playing with the slot cars.  Keeps me going!
7/1/13 - Farewell to Willoughby, our faithful friend and companion for the last 13.5 years.  We loved you so.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the waterfall in Zion.  Today was a very sad one for us, as we had to put our sweet Willoughby to sleep.
Saturday, July 2, 2011                    "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)   Check out the original here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/17330226_SSNF6P#1361726886_85RFQx2.  Your comments regarding my first "major" pp work on yesterday's T-Bird were both inspiring and appreciated. By the way, my hubby and our two sons are the "vintage vehicle/car buffs."   ***#4 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 6/11/2011)

Friday, July 6, 2012  "VERONA YELLOW PERSIAN SET with KOHL BLACK LIP WRAPS" by Dale Chihuly (1999)  "Color is like food for the spirit - plus it's not addictive or fattening." ~ Isaac Mizrahi  SOOC photo, hand blown glass; 15 x 19 x 18 inches  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.   Artist's Statement.........."The Persians started out as a search for new forms. I set up Martin Blank and Robbie Miller in a corner of the hotshop at Pilchuck. I would make large pencil drawings for them with a couple of dozen small forms, and then I would put an X under the ones I wanted them to go for. Over the next year, we made more than 1,000 miniature experimental forms." ~ Dale Chihuly  Thanks for your overwhelmingly kind comments regarding yesterday's photo. I am elated that you are enjoying this series. I'll post a few more Chihuly masterpieces and then I'll post another subject:).  Dale Chihuly's official website is www.chihuly.com  Oh Happy Friday!  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken June 29, 2012)
June 15, 2011-Catnap. Billy seems to be the king of catnaps. Seems his favorite spot is under the trees, in the shade, on top of the tractor cover. Who's better than him? (Day 166:365 @sharkbayte)
May 5 1945 Denmark was liberated by the British  from Nazi occupation, later American forces joined in. The picture is from my parental home where my parents gave accommodation to these two soldiers for about a fortnight as few accommodations were available. The soldier on the right is British and the one to the left I think was American.  I am the boy in between. My memory of these days are vague, but I remember that one of them had a jeep parked in front of the house and I had great pleasure of learning to drive by repeatedly use of the self-starter and thus moving  the jeep half a block away. As my father caught me in the act I was at once send to bed.

20.03.12 - Supermodel    I actually went out yesterday looking for butterflies in the sunshine, but ended up taking almost 200 photos of squirrels! The dappled light was beautiful  under the trees, but very difficult to deal with because of the huge contrast between light and dark. But by concentrating on the light patches I eventually got into a sort of flow and got the best squirrel shots I've ever taken. It helped that they seemed to be in a posing mood, rather than their usual skittish "now you see me now you don't"!    The gallery is here;  http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/Nature/HARTSHOLME-SQUIRRELS/22033254_X6cXPq#!i=1758123431&k=LF8GMwJ    I uploaded the gallery very late last night, and by this morning this shot had already been commented on by several people on Dgrin, so I guess it isn't just my favourite one :)

Tuesday, February 15, 2011  "LINES AND SWIRLS" Abstract  "Bright colours or dark ones, sparkling clarity or misty atmosphere, landscape, still life, portrait - I haven't met a subject, style, or mood yet that can't be portrayed beautifully in pastel."  ~ Dave Beckett  By date, this is my 10th pp creation! Here's a link to the original:  http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/15299231_BkGGq#1188286892_VWMmf  Thanks a million for your shout-outs on yesterday's Valentine's Day post; it landed and remained in the #3 spot. You all really showed me some "love!" Also, I "loved" perusing your beautiful photos!    Have a "Terrific Today," everyone!  ***#1 photo of the day and all time***  (original photo taken 1/23/2011 and pp 2/14/2011)
January 26,2013   This reminds me of a Punch and Judy show , or the curtain before a play , but it is a red painted,steel fence backing a little shed in a back yard . Looks like a potting shed, with flower pots and a few drying plants scattered about in between this chain link fence and the colorful wall. I shot a few captures, and was thinking I'd get some of those whimsical looking , artsy shots but this was the only one of clarity!   Love the brightness in a cold Winter month.   Thank you for putting me up in number one! Paul might be right about the naps , but they are actually "sleep ins" for as long as I want! Woohoo
08/23/11 - Flutterby  On the way in from picking up the kids at school yesterday, I swung into the local produce stand, Porters, to pick up some onions and fresh yellow squash. I love having veggies so easily accessible. I also love having such great photo ops there too. There are 6 or more of these huge light orange/yellow butterfly bushes, and they are always covered in some kind of butterfly. Today, this bush had 3 swallowtails zooming all over it, and I spent several minutes snapping away. This is my favorite of the bunch although there were a few close seconds.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/August-2011/18330920_7pCmrW#1443260783_ZzC2dDs http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/August-2011/18330920_7pCmrW#1443256037_FDRBBH8 http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/August-2011/18330920_7pCmrW#1443261106_kcxFVnK  The boys were pretty content...fresh lemonade with maraschino cherries and a slice of orange:-)   Thanks for all your comments on my car show pics...
