Colorful Big Red, Columbia MO    Got out to take some new photos today and this was the best one.  Big Red loves our photo walks since he gets to do his own thing off the leash.  But at some point I always sit down and wait for him to come around and pose for me.  John A. Stewart park is still full of color, even if most of it is on the ground.    Update: This photo was taken with the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4.  It's the first lens I bought for my camera and I really like it , I use it a lot, and it's not too expensive.

February 2, 2011-Ninja Cat. Allison has started sitting on this tree limb (when she isn't sleeping) to get a better vantage point for catching birds. Day 33 @sharkbayte  Thanks for all the comments on my picture and well wishes at the doctors. I'll be back to the doctors next week again for more tests. Oh the fun never ends! LOL!

Glamor Girls - Mar 17 2009  So reluctant the girl from yesterday was... so eager these girls were to get their picture taken. They were making dance moves in the street and when they saw me shooting pictures of them... they wanted to pose.

3rd year Pic 042 - Sep 02 2010  Splash! Dhobi Ghat    B&W is here but I feel the splash of colour looks better:     http://hershy.smugmug.com/Photography/Mumbai-my-city/Dhobi-ghat-cuffe-Parade/10119943_4urML#986119413_no6kb-A-LB    THANK YOU all for your comments on yesterday's pic of the man's portrait.     I am off this evening for the weekend, going to Udaipur in Rajashtan and may not be able to keep up with postings or comments till Tuesday.   Have a nice weekend!
September 3, 2010    I don't know what this cute little bug is - but it caught my eye today on the weeds near my house.  I loved his big, black eyes.  I hope you enjoy too.  There's no crop or post editing on this one - just got lucky.  Check it out in X2 - it's pretty cool.    Have a wonderful evening & a great Labor Day weekend Smug Muggers.  We are headed to another car show tomorrow, but this one also includes vintage WWII airplanes - so it should be fun & provide some great photo ops.    Sunday is my daughter's 34th birthday, Gee that makes me feel old!  LOL  - but she's a wonderful daughter, so Mom is so proud.  We will have my daughter (Chenoa - American Indian name that means White Dove of Peace). her husband & two girls, Bill's children and grandchildren mid afternoon on Sunday.  We'll have a great time grilling hamburgers to celebrate Chenoa's birthday & Labor Day.  When Chenoa was a littl girl, she always thought that the big Labor Day Weekend Celebrations - were all about her & her birthday.  That made me smile.  Many years later, she figured it out & just shares her birthday with the country.  :))!      Between Bill & I we have 7 grandchildren ranging in age from 16 years old to 4 months old.  So Sunday's celebration will be loads of fun - count the parents, grandparents, kids & grandkids - we'll have 15 people for dogs & burgers on Sunday!!!  I'm looking so very forward to it.    Then on Monday, Bill & I will be taking our cars to another car show in Burleson, TX.  So next week - watch for lots of vintage car shots.    Love the Smug Mug community & all your fabulous photos.  Have a great holiday weekend!!    Best,  Linda
Victoria Memorial Sunrise, Kolkata India    I found this photo when I was going through my Victoria Memorial photos for an upcoming blog post on my adventure photographing it.  I have shared a few HDR photos of Victoria Memorial in the past, but this is the first single exposure I have shared.  You can see a similar HDR version of this photo here:  http://smu.gs/AsXi97    WHAT DO YOU THINK?  WHICH DO YOU PREFER?  (I don't think this will be much of a contest ;)    I'm amazed at how quickly my processing techniques evolve.  I always think my most newly processed photos look the best, and any time I re-process something I usually like the new version better than the old.  In some ways processing is similar to writing, and the first version you make is just a first draft, which gets better and better with each revision.    CAN YOU SPOT THE SUN IN THIS SUNRISE?

3April11 - Speedy. A Galápagos giant tortoise (Chelonoidis nigra), Speedy was brought to the San Diego Zoo along with another 10 or so specimens in 1923 (at the time his estimated age was 20)--so Speedy has been somewhat of a celebrity on display for about 88 years. Still spry and quite active, he's just barely hitting his stride. Galápagos tortoises live around 100 years in the wild, but well over 160 years in captivity. Speedy will continue to delight and educate crowds long after I'm gone. SMCP-DFA 100mm WR f/2.8 + SMCP-F 1.7X TC.
01/30/11 - Swaying in the Breeze  I took this shot at Crowder Park's wetland area yesterday.  It was very windy and very sunny.  The bokeh is the water behind the ornamental grass moving in the wind.  I took as many shots as the boys would tolerate and thought this one was best.  I was like a kid in a candy store with the light dancing around the lens.  Some frames the wind blew the grass right out of the frame!    Picasa Lucky adjustment and square crop.    This was over at Lake Wheeler a bit later:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/January-2011/15307871_7ekG3#1171580836_ivuFo The water just would not stop glistening yesterday:-)  We hit 3 parks total meeting up with friends at the last park for some more fun.  Would have felt warm if the wind hadn't been blowing so bad.   Favorite kid shot of the day:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/January-2011/15307871_7ekG3#1171565216_xnHPr That's Joey and his new made friend Georgie on the Good Ship Crowder:-)  I did more sitting on the sidelines yesterday than I wanted, but it was a good day for the kids.  The fever was gone most of the day but seemed back at bedtime again:-(  Couldn't be that I over did it.  Not me!  So far today I feel OK.  Dogs just won't ever let me sleep in.  In another life Sugar and Honey must have been roosters.    HAGD, Maryann
23.9.09 - "The Ridge of Death" :)  OK OK, so it isn't really called that, but Steve (in the pic) christened it that when I first showed him videos of where I was going to take him. It is actually called "Crib Goch", and it is the first part of the famous Snowdon Horseshoe walk/scramble in North Wales. The cloud didn't help the photos, but it hid the big drops on either side, which was a good thing according to Steve!  For more of this wonderful day go here;   http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/Travel/SNOWDONIA-SEPTEMBER-2009/9743925_7Rion#P-1-20   Hopefully tomorrow I'll catch up with my Dailies and get the other photos posted from the trip.
4.11.08 - Magic?  This image is a strange combination of my last three Dailies. Taken at dusk, traffic light streaks, Autumn colours and mist. I love experimenting with long exposures, you never know quite what you're going to get, but you often get something magical. Apart from the obvious effects on movement you tend to get lovely rich colours. This is pretty much straight out of the camera.  Mind you, I nearly got a lot more than I bargained for! Sadly, this bridge is a popular suicide spot as well as being a great viewpoint. I've taken many photos from here, and so has every local photographer that I know. But today a passing motorist spotted this guy on the bridge and phoned the Police because he thought the guy was a "jumper". One Police car appeared below, stopped the traffic and asked if I was OK, while a Police van stopped alongside me and suddenly I had the undivided attention of four Police Officers! Luckily they quickly realised that I was only taking photos and we had a laugh about it, but it does make you think!!!  Here is an alternative view from the bridge that was a close contender today;  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4053630_nJYqk#410154110_DiLxk
Colorful Big Red, Columbia MO

Got out to take some new photos today and this was the best one. Big Red loves our photo walks since he gets to do his own thing off the leash. But at some point I always sit down and wait for him to come around and pose for me. John A. Stewart park is still full of color, even if most of it is on the ground.

Update: This photo was taken with the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4. It's the first lens I bought for my camera and I really like it , I use it a lot, and it's not too expensive.
