June 11, 2011    This is the same abandoned station where the marching line of gas pumps were found.  You can see that shot posted on June 5th here if you missed it.  I know many of you have seen it because of the wonderful comments which are very appreciated.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Daily-Photos-2010/12484643_ezMcC#1367630283_kkxm8S9    This is another set of gas pumps that are older in style, and were in front of the abandoned station.  As I mentioned before, there were 100s of pumps around this place.  It was so cool.    And here's an old sign that was in front of this old place- http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Signs/7752337_483tx//1061733754_#1376000970_H7MsspG    This was such a cool place and it brought back lots of memories for me from days gone by.  I hope you all enjoy it.    Linda
11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann
Hello All, This is my first image I’ve posted using My new Olympus E-5 set on the dramatic tone picture mode. This beautiful farm field resides in New Tripoli Pa.  Thanks for looking, please feel free to comment.
"The River Flows"  On my way home from an appt. today I stopped at one of my favorite fishing spots on the Rockaway River in my town to grab this capture. Too bad I didn't have a set of waders in my car to get the little water fall that is located just below this scene but I have to be UNDER the bridge I was on in order to get it in the frame LOL. So you'll have to settle for this one.    I love the little water flow control house that is dilapidated here, it adds a nice rigid feel to the scene. I've watched the roof continue to collapse over the years and soon it will just fall in completely. This is one of the best trout spots around here and they stock the river just upstream weekly during trout season from the farm with tags on them so you know if you caught a wild or farm bread fish. The mountain you see in the background is part of the Picatinny Arsenal where they develop & test new weapons for the military.    Anyway, it was an overcast day here as you can see and it really brought some nice contrast into the picture that I liked. I had to make slight levels adjustments to bring the clouds out a bit more and then some selective dodging & burning to the shadow areas but not much more to this one. Oh and a slight filter applied to bring the colors up a bit since it was so dark here. 10 min. of work and it was finished. So I hope you enjoy this next addition to my fall colors month - I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and get out there to enjoy the crisp clean fall air ;)    ALTERNATE VERSION: You can see a second version in SEPIA of this image in my EXTRAS Gallery BY CLICKING HERE    Best Regards,  ~Bill~
Tuesday, September 6, 2011             "TIERFUL"  "Colors are the smiles of nature" ~ Leigh Hunt  Worthy of a return visit............"The Field of Zinnias"  Remember the zinnias in yesterday's POTD? Well, these were captured in the same field. I love how these zinnias appear to be in tiers, overlapping, and/or cascading. I also love the mixture of colors. The frames were applied from PicNik.  Always popular with gardeners for their lush and lovely appearance, zinnias are traditional symbols of lasting love and good memories. Zinnias are longtime garden favorites for colorful, round flowers. I was told that these flexible hot-weather plants don’t gain from being planted early and stand still until weather warms up.   You can view the entire gallery here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/16179827_QjTWRB#1460261892_3j4Pnpw  Have a terrific Tuesday, everyone!  ***#1 photo of the day*** and all-time as of 9/7/2011  (photo taken on 7/29/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Tuesday, October 18, 2011    "FERRIS WHEEL 1"  SOOC, uncropped, flash didn't fire  "Life is like a ferris wheel. Sometimes, you're up; sometimes, you're down. In the end, you've just got to learn how to enjoy the ride." ~ Unknown Author  We decided to attend the MS State Fair this year.  We attended the State Fair of Texas a few weeks ago and although there are similarities and differences, each fair has attractions that are specific to its state. There is such a variety of subjects in this one capture. Also, the colors of the Ferris wheel changed continuously. This was taken just as it was starting to get dark and we were leaving the fair; but I was walking while snapping final shots.   The entire gallery of MS State Fair photos is here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/19101831_JWvJcN#1531877213_8jGvZ47  Your comments are greatly appreciated and I thoroughly enjoy viewing and commenting on your photos.  Have a terrific Tuesday, my SmugMug friends!   152nd MS State Fair State Fairgrounds Jackson, MS    ***#1 photo of the day***  (photo taken 10/15/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Wednesday, July 27, 2011     "GLOWS OF GRATITUDE"  "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross   Remember yesterday's pic? Well, these are views of the solid colored glass windows on each of the three entry doors to the chapel (from the inside). I pp'd this one; it's my 31st remix.  My nephew attends this SEC university and is pursuing a degree in kinesiology; he's doing quite well, and loves it! It is one of the top SEC universities in Mississippi and the prettiest SEC university campus I've toured.  Also, the campus spirit is pleasant, warm, friendly, and accepting of various nationalities and ethnicities. The official website is here: http://www.msstate.edu. and the complete gallery of campus photos are in the "Colleges/Universities" album.   Thanks so much for your views and comments on my "Angel" post yesterday. I thoroughly enjoy perusing and commenting on your fabulous pics, also.   It's hump day; have a great one!!

Tuesday, December 27, 2011     "BROKEN, BUT BEAUTIFUL"  "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one." ~ C.S. Lewis  No flash and SOOC, other than the border.......final Christmas theme post of the year:)  It was Christmas in November when I received this!  My best friend (of 23 years) and I exchanged Christmas gifts when she (and her family) were here during the Thanksgiving holidays. I think she's started a tradition of giving me a Christmas tree ornament each year. Unfortunately, when I pulled this one out of the bag, it was broken (most likely during shipping), although you probably cannot tell in this photo. It's an angel inside the ornament that's suppose to sit atop the base and light up once the light switch is turned on. Actually, it's amazing how much I like the fact that the angel appears to be sitting at the base of the ornament holding a picture. Nevertheless, it's beautiful and I love and appreciate it. The frame was applied from PicNik.   View the 2010 ornament here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Project365/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2011/15049328_sF4n2j#1192553561_ebJxx-A-LB  The glass bowl in the background is the one in the Thursday, December 22, 2011 post, which can be viewed or reviewed here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Project365/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2011/15049328_sF4n2j#1595885649_SVSM4TJ-A-LB  I wholeheartedly appreciate your comments on my photos and I enjoy perusing your outstanding photos.   Five days until the 2012 new year.......   Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!!!  ***#6 photo of the day***  (received ornament 11/25/2011; photo taken 12/1/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Monday, May 16, 2011  "442"  (pp version)  "It allows you to say things that sound very dramatic and get away with it. If you had characters in modern fiction say the same things as they're driving down the street in an Oldsmobile, they'd sound ludicrous." ~ Terry Goodkind  Here's another Lgood inspired automobile capture. This cobalt blue baby was one of my hubby's favorites in the show. Unfortunately, there was not an information card, but while we were at the car show, my hubby (who loves antique cars) informed me that this is a "442 Cutlass Olds." He also stated that the chrome on the rear bumper, in all likelihood, has been redone. You can see a glimpse of my black / white animal print jacket and red cape in the bumper. There was a chilly breeze and the temps had dropped to mid 50s. Yes, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped.   The original can be viewed here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/16609546_tdrqK#1274849706_xFHRmdP  Also, I did some research and according to Wikipedia, "The Oldsmobile 442 (pronounced four-four-two) was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. It was introduced as an option package for F-85 and Cutlass models sold in the United States beginning with the 1964 model year. It became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971, then reverted to an option through the mid-1970s. Oldsmobile revived the name in the 1980s on the rear-wheel drive Cutlass Supreme and early 1990s as an option package for the new front-wheel drive Cutlass." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_442)  Furthermore, I am overwhelmingly and humbly appreciative of your comments on yesterday's "Antique Chevy." It landed in the #2 spot. Congrats to my friend sharkbayte whose "Clouds" pic was #1. View it here: http://sharkbayte.smugmug.com/Photography/2011-Daily-Photos/15280496_zofpQ#1291649048_zdNjmgz  Enjoy today; a "blue" Monday may not be so bad after all (smile).  ***#1 photo of the day and all time***  Show Your Ride Car Show  Memphis, TN  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Saturday, July 2, 2011                    "1955 FORD FAIRLANE TOWN SEDAN"  “Vision without execution is just hallucination.” ~ Henry Ford  Here's my very 1st HDR pp image........best viewed in XLarge!!   A special thanks to Lgood's husband Bill (owner of a Ford Fairlane) who stated that this is "a 1955 (maybe a '66) but nearly certain it is a '55."  This multi-colored Ford Fairlane Town Sedan was my favorite in the show. I love the bright colors that changed depending upon the angle from which it was viewed. If you look real close, you will see reflections galore in this one, most notably a red Chevy pickup that was parked beside it.    According to Wikipedia, "The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model sold between 1955 and 1970 by the Ford Motor Company in North America. The name was taken from Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan. Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-size car but became a mid-size car from the 1962 model year. The mid-sized model spawned the Australian-built Fairlane in 1967, although it was considered a large car there." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Fairlane_Americas)   Check out the original here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/17330226_SSNF6P#1361726886_85RFQx2.  Your comments regarding my first "major" pp work on yesterday's T-Bird were both inspiring and appreciated. By the way, my hubby and our two sons are the "vintage vehicle/car buffs."   ***#4 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 6/11/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
January 7, 2012  This shot was taken just after sundown somewhere along the Mississippi coast of the Gulf of Mexico.  We had stopped to walk on the beautiful white-sand beaches and take some photos.  Just as we left, we stopped at a nearby marina to put gas in the car and I couldn't resist taking this photo.  Frame added in Picnik.  I hope you enjoy this tranquil setting captured in this photo - it's going to be one of my favorites from our recent vacation.  Check it out in X3 for all the color, reflections and details.  Thanks for your comments!!!  Have a fabulous weekend!!!  Linda
