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!
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
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.
I did have time to make one purchase at Canton before that awful storm came....Meet Jackson's new baby sister and she really needs a name!! Any suggestions out there??
September 25, 2013  This lovely meadow was along our drive from Moab, Utah to Ouray, Colorado.  It was not too far from from Montrose, Colorado if I recall correctly.  This is a 5 shot HDR merge.    The sky was threatening rain, and within minutes of taking these shots, it did begin to rain.  What beautiful country we saw on the trip.    If you have time, check this out in X-large.  Thank you all for your kind comments.  Critiques are welcome.  "It is the mind which creates the world around us, and even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours, my heart will never stir to the emotions with which yours is touched."  ~ George Gissing  Have a beautiful day my friends!  Linda  Late added comment:  yes I'm still in Birmingham and my work day just ended about 30 minutes ago (10:00 PM) after arising at 5:00 am for the start of my day, so I'm late in making and reading comments. Please see Dreamcatcher's s comments - I had no idea this was Ralph Lauren's ranch.  Way cool!!!
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
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.
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?

Thursday, March 1, 2012  "B-17G SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY" (Flying Fortress)  Marianne Williamson said, "The spiritual path is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path; most people just don’t know it."  OK, this is the final aircraft post in the series. This museum was of particular interest to me because as I have stated many times before, I have a first cousin in the Air Force, a nephew in the Marines, and my father is retired from the Army.    "The Commemorative Air Force Arizona Wing Aviation Museum" complete gallery of photos is here:   http://godschild.smugmug.com/Military/The-Commemorative-Air-Force/  SOOC comes this 68 year old aircraft built in 1944 and considered to be the most authentically restored flying World War II B-17 bomber in the world today. Sentimental Journey now visits an average of 60 cities and towns across the United States and Canada each year as a patriotic and educational exhibit.  It is based at Falcon Field and owned by The Commemorative Air Force. Although there were 12,731 B-17's built, approximately 50 are still in existence. It operates at a cost of $2000 per hour. It has been featured in movies/television shows such as "All The Fine Young Me," "1941," and "Wings." Its nose art features a photo of Betty Gable.   On the day of our visit, Sentimental Journey was one of three airplanes that tourists could take 40-45 minute flights for a fee..........$850 (for the nose) and $425 (for mid and aft fuselage).  I really appreciate that you enjoyed my presentations of the various aircraft over the last few days. If you are ever in Arizona, a visit to this museum is a "no brainer."  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday!  The Commemorative Air Force Wing Aviation Museum Falcon Field - 2017 N. Greenfield Road  Mesa, Arizona 85215   ***top 10 photos of the day***  (photo taken 12/28/2011)
Yellow columbine; best viewed in the largest sizes.  I admit I like the detail and the light on this one.  Thanks for the comments on the flying shot of the hawk.  I always appreciate that folks take the time to comment.  It really keeps me encouraged and inspired.
It's a Bee's Butt photo!    Just running through some old photos - and this one of the bee's butt in the cactus flower made me laugh.  You've heard about 'bee's knees' but you don't get to see a bee butt very often  I hope it makes you laugh too.    Best viewed in X2
5/8/12 - Tree swallow; best viewed in the largest sizes.  I'm going to try to add the date for Art, but I have a lot of trouble remembering, plus I often don't even know what date is it.  Dates are just something I don't notice.  Thanks for all your comments on the photo of Domino watching the moth.  It would have been neat if I could have gotten the moth in the same shot.  Hope everyone is having a good week so far!
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.
