Autumn - November 2, 2011     Thanks so much for all the very generous comments on "The Grid" photo yesterday. It was posted a couple of times before only to be ripped down by the "Snake" . Looks like it wouldn't die after all. It is one of my personal favorites as many things came together to get the shot. As it turned out I was trying to shoot blue jays on a fence when these black birds showed up everywhere. The background is a building with a corrugated siding which add the lines. The background colors near the bottom are from rust and mud. I added a graduated filter in processing to the top to give it some extra pop. Everything else was straight from the camera.      Thanks again so much from a great community of photographers.   Jeff Graham

Turtle (Pic 249 2nd year - 24 Sep 2009)  (D300 17-55 2.8 lens)  No crop or PP except light adjustments.     Shot at Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery near Galle, Sri Lanka.     Kosgoda is famous for its turtle hatchery operated by the Wild Life Protection Society of Sri Lanka. It was established in 1981 to protect Sri Lanka's turtles from extinction. The hatcheries pay fishermen for eggs that they collect at night along the long sandy beach. Visitors are shown the huge tanks filled with new born but lively hatchlings. After being fed the hatchlings are taken to the sea and released when they are 2-4 days old    www.javeri.net

28.04.10 - Kaleidoscope   When I walk into town I try to plan my route around photo opportunities, indeed I do the same if I drive in too. But this afternoon I was on foot, and on the way home I took a detour through the Arboretum to see what was new. As it happened there were plenty of new flowers in bloom, which gave me the opportunity to grovel around on my stomach to see what outrageous bokeh I could manage to get!   Apologies for any burned out retinas that might be caused by this riot of colour.

15.04.12 - Distant Impressions    Every now and again people ask me why I call my photographic business "Light and Dreams Photography". It is difficult to express in a few words, but this image sums it up. For me photography is all about the light, and trying to create dreams with it, which sounds very pretentious, but it is how I feel in my heart. Most of the time this isn't possible, you can only do so much with the conditions at the time, and my skills aren't enough to make something beautiful every time I click the shutter, unlike the photographers I aspire to. But yesterday evening the light was absolutely magical, which made things a lot easier :)    This is more or less the reverse shot to yesterday's Daily, but a totally different perspective of course. I actually took about 90 photos while walking the dog, but most were very similar as I tried to catch the golden glow of the low sunlight on the oilseed rape fields. I've made a small gallery from the walk here;    http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/Landscapes/GOLDEN-FIELDS/22464665_tx7qcS#!i=1796050231&k=gBmQbsJ
Early morning hay field.
Blue  Took this around 19.30 (7.30pm) yesterday evening. Couldn't resist the blue!  The old walls in the background are part of Dungarvan Castle dating from the 12th century.   June 5, 2011
Wednesday, June 22, 2011  "THE BROWN MANSION"  A couple of days in New Orleans, LA......"The Big Easy!"  "The Brown Mansion" was built in 1904 for W.P. Brown, a local cotton mogul. The house, which is the largest on Saint Charles Avenue, is a classic example of Romanesque Revival. This particular style grew in popularity at the turn of the century, reflecting the financial prosperity of the city’s industry tycoons.   The Romanesque Revival home has nine bedrooms and approximately 14,000 square feet of space. The home, which looks like it belongs on a university campus, was built with the finest materials and has ornate plaster details, carved wood ceilings and massive fireplaces. The stone home sits on private gated grounds by landscape architect Rene Fransen and has a terraced patio with a heated pool and a hot tub. There is also a built-in three car garage. It was listed for sell at $8.5 million.  View reprinted text and stunning interior pictures here: www.luxist.com/2009/06/22/the-brown-mansion-estate-of-the-day.  Other famous residents are/were Anne Rice, Trent Reznor, Archie and Peyton Manning; Nicolas Cage, John Goodman, Jesse James & Sandra Bullock. Also, on St. Charles Avenue you'll find The Cornstalk Hotel and fence, which have appeared in several movies and commercials over the years, the death site of Jefferson Davis; and film site of Brad Pitt's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
