Pour ma Caroline - Feb 14 2009  This is my last post for Valentine... for my darling wife whom I love with all my heart!  Thanks for the comments on my Valentine pics... will need to turn the knob in my head to find a normal PD again ;-)
July 20, 2011-I believe I have the id correct Blue Dasher. I also captured a huge blue skimmer, wasn't thrilled with that one as he never turned around. I'll see if I can find him/her again later on today. Thank you for all the comments on my spider shot yesterday. You folks are the best and really made my day. As I was outside shooting this guy, I found the spider from yesterday, this time he moved onto my neighbors screen door. Suddenly she doesn't want to use that door hmm....(201:365)
Cat looking out the window; best viewed in the largest sizes.  Taken from the other side of the cat from the shot of two days ago.  I thought it was more effective in b/w.  Thanks for your comments on the kite shot!  I was blown away by the marvelous shots you folks put up today!
19.11.11 - Sparkles    This just shows how close beauty is, if only we take the time to see it. I was looking out of the kitchen window on Saturday morning and the back lawn seemed to be sparkling in the morning sunshine. So I went out to have a closer look and indeed it was :)
Posted 1/20/11 for my daily of 1/21/11    Hey there all my SmugMugger friends!    I have to leave tomorrow morning (Friday - 1/21) on a flight to Phoenix, AZ at 6:30 AM CST - and I won't be back in Dallas until midnight Friday - or is that Saturday morning?  Those one day trips are killers.    Because of my trip. I am going to post my second daily photo today (forgive me) so I won't loose a day of posting to the Daily Photo Community because of my crazy travel schedule.      So please count this as my Daily for Friday, January 21st.    Even though I get back to Love Field (home base = Dallas) at midnight tomorrow, I still have to get to my car in the remote parking lot, and drive home.  The drive home is an hour, and so I'm at my house 1:15 a.m.  I'll not want to post a Daily or comment at that time in the morning, so I'm posting tonight.    Even though I'll miss commenting on Friday (tomorrow). I'll catch up on my commets on your fab photos Saturday afternoon.      This shot is from the archives, and is a 1939 Chevrolet that was gorgeous - I liked the smattering of rain drops on the car.  The pearl white color was perfect, and the interior was magnificent - I liked it in B&W treatment.    Thanks for your comments  on my recent photos.    Best regards,  Linda
Just Before Sundown, Rocheport MO    Nini and I took the dogs to our new sunset location the night before last and were lucky to see a beautiful Missouri River sunset.  This little sandbar is just below the Katy Trail outside of Rocheport Missouri.  The Katy Trail is a 240 mile state park that runs along the old M.K.T. railroad line (Missouri-Kansas-Texas).  To access the sandbar you have to climb down a steep dirt cliff, but there are plenty of tree roots to help lower yourself down.  The dogs were down in a skip and a jump.  One passer by said, "How in the heck do I get down there?  That's the best beach in Missouri!"  We had a fun time watching the sunset on the best beach in MO.    This is a six-exposure HDR.  Despite an awesome view of the sunset, I struggled for a long while to find a composition I liked.  But we arrived 45 minutes before sunset and I had plenty of time to try out different compositions and ultimately settle in on a few that I liked.    Thanks for all of the comments on my Dad and I's photos yesterday.  We have a great time when we get together and are always giving each other a hard time.  I always razz him about his haircut and he always mocks my clothing and lack of shave, but I know he really envies my good looks and sense of fashion!    UPDATE:  CreativeLIVE is LIVE today and all weekend, and it's free.  The workshop is "Bellies and Babies with Sandy Puc."  You can go to www.creativelive.com but I recommend the low resolution link here:  http://www.ustream.tv/channel/creativelive-lowres  I like to keep these on in the background and pick up as much as I can.  They replay the day's workshop each night too.  Even though this one is about baby photography, and I'm not especially interested in that (yet), I always learn something from these shows, especially about the business of photography because I know so little about it!

April 22, 2012    My Earth Day contribution - thanks L Perry!!!!  Wildflowers are the salt of the earth and sustain the beauty there over.    What kind of Texan would I be if I didn't post a photo or two of our beloved Bluebonnets?  So, here is a wonderful field of bluebonnets near my house.  The bluebonnets are the state flower of Texas.  The orange flowers that are sprinkled throughout the field are Indian Paint Brush wildflowers, and they are the state flower of Oklahoma, the state where I was born.    From www.statesymbolsusa.org: "The bluebonnet was designated the official state flower of Texas in 1901. Also called buffalo clover, wolf flower, and el conejo (spanish for "the rabbit"), bluebonnets are to Texas what the shamrock is to Ireland."      Further, this website states:  " The bluebonnet is not only the state flower - Texas has also designated an official bluebonnet city (Ennis, Texas), festival (Chappell Hill Bluebonnet Festival), and trail (also in Ennis). The bluebonnet flower is named for the color and sunbonnet-shaped petals."    "The home of the bluebonnet - the North American prairie - is one of the most endangered ecosystems on earth. The grasslands of North America began to form about 20 million years ago, but in some areas up to 99 percent of the prairie has been destroyed (in just the last 125-150 years). Wildflowers are the jewels of public lands - tread lightly, take only photos and memories - do not pick flowers or dig up plants."    Ennis, Texas is very near my home in Waxahachie, Texas.  However, the beloved bluebonnets are found all over the state of Texas.    I would like to salute the absolutely gorgeous bluebonnet photos that have been posted by Dakotacowboy, Firefly, Papamugger, Webstersway and others.  Their shots were incredible and shared with our Daily Community in the height of the bluebonnet season, which is fairly short.  You guys did a magnificent job showcasing our state flower!  Thank you.    Have a "wildflower" sort of day today my friends, and stop to absorb the beauty around us, for it is a gift each day.    Linda
20.5.09 - Hitchin' a Ride  I paid a flying visit to Hartsholme Park this afternoon, to drop off some bits for the Lady of Shalott display commemorating the filming there, and while I was there went for a "short" photo walk. 180 photos later I'd got the best wildfowl shots I've ever taken and a whole stack of wildflower pics. The light was wonderful, and how could I ignore these guys? I followed this family of swans for a while, and eventually the lazy fella jumped off and swam along with the rest of them. The downside was that I got my first set of mosquito bites this year!
"Happy Birthday mom -This is for you !"    Today my mom celebrates her 49th b-day and I bought her 49 roses making it more special. I wish her a fantastic birthday !        I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me.  They have clung to me all my life.  ~Abraham Lincoln~
3rd year Pic 316 - Aug 29 2011 Paradise Fly catcher Ranthambhore National Park Best seen in bigger size More pictures at  http://hershy.smugmug.com/Travel/Ranthambhore/RT-June-2011/17444320_Qps9C3  The paradise-flycatchers, Terpsiphone, are a genus of monarch flycatchers. The genus ranges across Africa and Asia, as well as a number of islands. A few species are migratory, but the majority are resident. The most telling characteristic of the genus is the long tail streamers of the males of many species. In addition to the long tails the males and females are sexually dimorphic and have rufous, black and white plumage.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradise_flycatcher
