March 1, 2011 "The Rose" this is SOOC using my new Sigma 50-500 lens, hand held and natural light through a window. I ordered it a week ago and all buyers remorse was gone after the first few shots.  The roses were sent to our office manager by her husband yesterday on their 35th ann..
November 4th, 2010 - Pretty in Pink  For IndigoDreams:  This is for your “post pink” challenge and I sincerely apologize that it is so late! I had good intentions to do this earlier but you know what they say about those! However, they also say “better late than never”, right? No excuses – this should have been posted on Tuesday.  While I have not personally met or lost someone who has had breast cancer, I certainly feel that it deserves as much time and energy as any other ailment – even one death is too many. I lost my mother to Huntington's Disease a year ago and I can understand how the drive to make other people understand and support a cause comes about (and how trying it can be) - I applaud you for your compassion and your energy.

This lady bug was on a weed right next to the strange looking bugs..I will have to go back and check those weeds out again!
Dog-Tired....Exactly how I'm feeling this morning! Had a busy day yesterday and was out late...will catch up with everyone tonight!

Sunday, October 27, 2013    "P" is for PRETTY and PINK    "The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it." ~ Moliere   SOOC, uncropped, 35mm lens - Pink and White Seaform Set with Black Lip Wraps by Dale Chihuly  Photo submission for Donna McCommon's "Alphabet Challenge" and Tina Gardner's (aka "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Bras" and "IndigoStudios") "Think Pink" Challenge, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month  Millions of people around the world pay tributes to those men and women who are facing cancer, overcame cancer, and those warriors and soldiers who reside in heaven now after fighting various forms of cancer with great strength and dignity. CJMG is a survivor of that darn breast "C" word. As we continue to pray for a cure for cancer and all diseases, our hope in God will sustain us; for "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us." (Ephesians 3:20, KJV of The Bible).   Additionally, "Pink is the color of universal love. Pink is a quiet color. Lovers of beauty favor pink. Pink is a combination of red and white. The quality of energy in pink is determined by how much red is present. White is the potential for fullness, while red helps you to achieve that potential. Pink combines these energies. Pink provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth, love, and acceptance." ~ Reprinted text from here: http://crystal-cure.com/pink.html  I am a huge fan of Dale Chihuly's glass art and this "Pink Seaform" work of art was my favorite in the exhibit. "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 (Reprinted text from here: http://www.chihuly.com/seaforms-artists-statement.aspx)  "Be kind; for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle " ~ Plato  Gallery Row at Crystals Place City Center Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas, NV  ***#2 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken July, 2013)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
August 20, 2010    What the heck kind of bug is this???    Whatever it is, it's truly ugly in X3, but I couldn't help snapping, then posting this photo.    Spotted this really ugly fellow on my husband's 1981 Ford truck's window wipers.  I have no idea what this guy is, but he is really, really ugly.  Let me know if you know what this guy's  name is.  Hope he gives you a laugh today.    Thanks to everyone for your comments!!!    Linda    PS - see the comments below:  Pulsman's friend thinks it's a Dance Fly (that's pretty cool, he does seem to be dancing - sort of), and Macropixels agrees with Pulsman that it is the fly family Empididae, a Empis Tesselata.  Cool to know.
Lower Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon, located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona.  Some have asked if you can see the saturated colors with the naked eye. The answer is "no."   Photos taken in this canyon, which is 50 feet or more below the surface, need to be captured with the camera on a tripod, ISO 400 and higher, and the lens stopped down to achieve as great a depth of field as possible.  Also, due to no direct light, exposures may vary from a second to over a minute. I had no idea of the proper settings but listened to the pros shooting around me.  I also had no idea of the beautiful colors in the canyon until after each photo was taken.   Another tip - if you want to get out of there alive, please do not use your flash. I didn't and I survived.  Best results are achieved when the sun is high in the sky, and from late Spring to early Fall.  Someone wanted to know if using a flash would stir up bats or some other form of wildlife.  I'm sure it could.  I was cautioned not to use a flash because of the wrath that could potentially rain down on me from other photographers.  The saturated colors that you see in photos like mine are only achieved by using time exposures.  A flash will only wash out the colors.
2009  OK everyone - I "bit the bullet" and bought my first macro lens - it's a Nikon 105 VR.  This is my daily today and it was shot hand held of the Texas Prickly Pear blooms.  Many of my shots with the new lens today weren't great - I guess I was shaking.  I didn't particularly like the comp, but loved the colors.  Still learning this new lens.  Anyway, I'm loving the experience.  Thanks for all your comments.  Have a wonderful day tomorrow.     Best viewed in Xlarge or 2X    Linda

07/16/2011 ***It was refreshing then; it's refreshing now.*** I learned how to do pin up photography today :) How could I resist but to do a vintage Coke ad?   [edit by david: Jacci used the monster softbox I made with directions from here, adding in her effects magic on top.  update 9/30/2011: There is now a blog posting about the construction of the monster softbox.]
Cowboy at the Rodeo - I saw this gentleman walking away from the coliseum and snapped this photo.  He glimpsed me taking his picture and stopped and offered to pose for me.  I took some other shots of him but liked this first one the best.  I appreciated those of you who took the time to check out my most recent barrel racing shot.  Thanks.  My cold is still hanging in there, but I'm sure I'll start to get better soon.  Like everyone else, I hate being sick.  I've fallen down a bit on my commenting but hope to be back to normal tomorrow.  Enjoy your day!

Thank you for all the support and comments. This shot took a lot of my patience and it pays off. I have been taking photos of this moon for the past few night until the cloud finally kicks for this capture.
