Colourful Trip  We had a brilliant stay in West Cork. This is Eyeries. Due to cars on the sunny side of the street I had to opt for this side but it still captures the bold colours of the entire village. This was taken around 18.15 (6.15pm)  Eyeries, renowned for its multi-coloured houses and its panoramic views over the Atlantic has two pubs, two shops, one of these with petrol and diesel pumps, a cafe/restaurant and a post office/shop. In every year since 2003 it has won either a gold or silver medal in the small village category of the Ireland Tidy Towns competition. http://www.eyeries.com/index.html   Thank you all for the lovely birthday and anniversary wishes. We appreciate every one of them.  July 25, 2011
1/18/13 - Great horned owl  Thanks so much for your comments on my shot of the coyote.  What an amazing variety of shots today on smugmug!  I really enjoyed browsing through them.  You guys sure know how to keep me inspired!
Wednesday, October 2, 2013  "FOUNTAINS OF BELLAGIO"  "The knowledge of man is as the waters, some descending from above, and some springing from beneath; the one informed by the light of nature, the other inspired by divine revelation." ~ Francis Bacon  SOOC, uncropped, 35mm lens   There's always one......Dycasstudios requested to see the camera settings so, you can view them here under "Comments (see Godschild): http://dycasstudios.smugmug.com/DailyGallery-1/2013-Daily/27377083_2KC9tv#!i=2805356469&k=7S5q8Rs  In July, we spent a week in Arizona at "my happy place."  While there, we decided to digress and drive to Las Vegas. Although I was first and last in Las Vegas in June (2006) with my best friend, it was my hubby's first trip to Vegas. Upon our arrival, we parked in the Bellagio's parking garage and headed straight for the water show that was just about to start. This is one of the first photos that I took.  A refreshing addition to entertainment options, the Fountains of Bellagio were destined to romance the senses during the day and night. We viewed this thoughtfully interwoven complimentary Las Vegas show of water, music, and light. Each dynamic performance is unique in its expression and interpretation. It is truly the most amusing, amazing, ambitious, choreographically complex water feature ever conceived against the beautiful backdrop of Las Vegas's sky. I fell in love all over again with the stunning nature of this aquatic accomplishment while listening to a clever concert of opera, classical, and Broadway tunes.

3rd year Pic 212 - Apr 23 2011 Bubbles 2  Thank you for your comments on my yesterday's picture.  This is the same man but taken head-on with the light on his right. The background is one of the posters hung up on the wall behind him and thought it added a bit of a drama to the shot!   ADDED: The man was selling the kit for making bubbles,  the liquid in a bottle and a simple contraption to blow the bubbles.   This is best seen in large size.  The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival is an annual festival, usually around nine days long, held in late January or early February, in the Kala Ghoda area of South Mumbai, India. The Festival is organised by the Kala Ghoda Association (a non-profit organisation that states its objectives as "physically upgrading the Kala Ghoda sub-precinct and making it the Art District of Mumbai") and curated by teams handling each of the sub-festivals. The sub-festivals feature the visual arts, dance, music, theatre, cinema, literature, lectures, seminars and workshops, heritage walks, special events for children, and a vibrant street festival. Entry to all events is free to all (only restricted by the size of the venues) and costs are met through corporate sponsorship. http://www.kalaghodaassociation.com/OpinionPollAns.aspx http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kala_Ghoda_Arts_Festiva
01/28/12 - Rainbows  My Blog:  http://maryanng.blogspot.com/2012/01/rainbows.html  Today's daily is both inspired, pretty, and scientific.  What you're looking at is a macro of a CD (really a DVD) that was put in the microwave for 7 seconds.  A special thanks to Vandana and Dianne Ward for their inspiration.  I saw their beautiful photos yesterday and was motivated to give it a try myself.    If you're wondering more about why CDs reflect rainbows, here's a geeky explanation that I understood.  I took about 250 pics, and the hardest part was holding everything still so as to not blur the images and actually taking images with the rainbow color that did not also contain a SP.  Hi!  SmugMug Link  This is the CD after 7 seconds in the microwave on high (my microwave is pretty powerful).  Don't let the chemicals quickly igniting and burning out around 5 seconds cause you to jump too bad!  It's just a small flash.  Turning the fan hood on the stove on is a good idea too as there is a bit of a chemical smell for a few minutes.   SmugMug Link  A couple other pics that I liked:  SmugMug Link  SmugMug Link  SmugMug Link  If you want to give this a try, experiment a lot with the angle you hold the CD relative to the lens.  You can make it look like lightning or veins in the body or cracks in ice or wherever your imagination takes you. Most of all if you try it, have fun!  Even Donnie was getting in on the act!  SmugMug Link  My shots were mostly taken under a compact fluorescent light.  It might be worthwhile to go out in the sun or try halogen or some other light source.  Water or maybe oil on top might produce nice results too!  The comments you guys left on my B&W tree yesterday made my day.  Thanks!  HAGD, Maryann
Thar's frost on the pumpkin and on the window - We rarely have frost on any of our windows, so I was quite excited to see it on the storm door one morning not long ago.  I rushed to get my camera and captured a few shots.  You really need to view this in the largest sizes to see the wonderful patterns.  Thanks for the comments on my power stack pic.  Hope your holiday weekend is going well.  Glad to hear that many of you are no more ready for Christmas than I am.  We slackers like to hear that we are not the only ones!

I captured this sunset photo during a mild low tide.  There was heavy surf, very large waves, and high wind that day, so there was a lot of mist in the air.  This mist softened the lines of the lighthouse and hostel buildings in the background lending a bit of a dreamy quality to the composition.  (Note: the surf was so unusually high, that the Maverick's surf contest was held that morning (it's a world famous contest that is held only one day a year, on the day when the waves are expected to be the highest, and it attracts the world's best big-wave surfers).

06/28/11 - Enter If You Dare  Just a house long since abandoned and for sale near Albemarle, NC on Hwy. 52.  I've also been studying this spot for the past several trips to/from dad's house trying to decide if I should stop and take pics or not.  Sunday was the day.  I was attracted to the peeling paint and the view through a view of the glass on this porch area.  A wider view processed similarly showing the whole porch area:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Inspirations/Inspirations/10386893_s5msk#1358623461_tPQJfk6  No change with my dad...  Thanks for all your comments on my glowing tree from yesterday.    HAGD, Maryann
What IS that?  This little girl was the flower girl at a recent wedding shoot and I noticed that she was looking at the light coming in from a stained glass window onto her hand.  She was absolutely fascinated!  Thanks so much for the many nice comments on my latest balloon festival picture.  These festivals do provide so many great photo ops.  It really made my day to see so many of you liking my image.  I love to imagine all of us SmugMuggers, going about our days with our cameras at hand, always on the lookout for a great shot.  I see us at work with our cameras, sitting in the car with them on our laps, with us in restaurants and bars, and everywhere we go.  We can be found lying on the ground, perched on fences, teetering on ladders, wading in streams.  We are fearless; we are strong; we are indomitable; we are smugmuggers!  Enough, already!  Have a great day!

Frozen by Padonna - Jan 10 2009  While shooting all kinds of frozen things (there's not much more to shoot now) this back lit spider web was screaming for attention. Natures simplicity can be so beautiful...
