Letter "Z," for Judy's Alphabet Shape Challenge...  A special thanks to Judy Horton http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/), for this fun challenge!  For some reason, the letter "Z" shape proved difficult for me to find. I got lucky one morning a couple of days ago and found this "Z" being cast by the morning sun through a walking bridge structure at a local park...  Thanks so much for your views and comments!  Critiques welcome...  God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. Psalm 18:30 NLT  13 July 2014
07.13.14  Son #3 McKay (said Mic EYE-like pie) Age 22.  A silly one for today. I didn't get back to comment yesterday. We were busy enjoying our visit. His dad will be picking him up here in Riverdale in an hour :-( he will spend the rest of the day in the Provo area visiting his paternal relatives. Tomorrow he flies back to Central/Northern Calif with his dad. I will miss having Mc around. It is important to grab every precious moment of life and this child has always been so full of life.   This is really a good photo of Mc. He is kind silly and warped like this. He does not like having his foto taken and often what he is willing to do is take silly pictures. He said that IF he had a Facebook page this is what he would use for his profile.  Tomorrow I will post a handsome image of Son #3.
P for the challenge. I found all my letters and will post today to finish the challenge.
Rocket Fizz - the "Z" challenge  OK, I know, it is a Z, not a Z whanabe, but I was in this great old fashioned candy store, the Rocket Fizz Soda Shop, next to the movie theater in Las Vegas, and knew I needed  a Z for today. I will be posting more "old-time" candy shots that will make us all feel old!

13JUL2014  Miss Pamela  Like a ship heading from its port on a beautiful sunrise morning the memories of Pam will always bring a fresh breeze to the start of the new day.  A friend for over thirty five years Pam passed away July 1, 2014…   We didn't always agree on everything….she was the only woman on multiple occasions that felt the need to usher me to the front door offering to whoop my ass for something in the front yard, yet when things got bad i was one she could confide in.   I had the pleasure of riding out a few meteorological disasters with her and her family.   The long struggle comes to an end, i know of nobody from our family that has taken a tougher road in life than Pam, yet each day for her was filled with hope and a smile.  Living most her life on the Gulf Coast where she grew up Pam always welcomed me into her home, made sure we knew her point of view, and gave me hug when i left. Of all my sister-in-laws i spent the most time with Pam, we miss her already.
Letter Z.  Work with me here, close to Z.  It was provided by nature and I struggled to find something else.  Next Challenge?  I'm up for the Branding - logos by alphabet, or something related to colors.
This was taken shortly before the shot posted yesterday but in less light. Not sharp but I love these flowers and had no time to get out with camera today!  Happy BUSY Saturday! 13/07/14
01/13/10 - Candle Bubbles First, let me say that I just was not expecting the response that I got for yesterday's photo.  There were many great photos on Smug yesterday and everyday.  Thank you for stopping by to look at my pictures and for commenting when you see something you like.  I am more inspired each day to try to bring you an even better photo.    Second, so after yesterday's response to my candle shot, and having had a good response to my candle shot in my Daily's last year, I figured I'd better go take another candle shot.  I got the idea this time that I should try floating candles.  Yep, let's up the difficulty level so that the candles are moving all over the place:-)  At the very last minute, I opted to use...can you guess by the picture?  Sprite instead of water.  What you are seeing here is the underside of the floaters with air bubbles trapped by the carbination.  I was quickly drawn to start taking photos under the candles instead of on top of them:-)  Doesn't take too much convincing for me to start taking macros.  I had to take a lot of photos to get one where the candles were still enough for the exposure to be reasonably sharp.  I think this was the best of the bunch.    This is maybe the shot I should have posted for my POTD:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/January-2010/10839050_kGd7Z#764300850_si6wq  And, here's a set-up shot:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/January-2010/10839050_kGd7Z#764291320_CVDqf Somebody please tell me why I did not notice the cool glass shadow and take a real picture of that, please?!?  I saw it afterward and went...wow!  I should have spent some time with that.  Maybe next time.  Thank you all again and have a great day! Maryann
July 12 2014  Our oldest grandson, 3 1/2 years old is getting hard to get a photo of.  Tonight he told me no pictures, I run from cameras.  When I asked him why, he told me the camera's light hurts his eyes.  We had to go outside and play peek-a-boo to prove that Grandma's camera wouldn't hurt his eyes.
JULY 13 2014 A cloudy night, Work, Work, Then done a Grad party shoot last night.
Thanks for the comments on the Red Truck Photo.
J for the challenge. I found all my letters and will post today to finish the challenge.
"Z Queen"...07/13/2014...
7-13-14. Wood Stork. Anastasia State Park, St. Augustine, Florida. 2014.   I was able to get within feet of this Wood Stork at Anastasia State Park today. It was hanging around some people who were fishing, hoping for goodies. I felt honored to be so close to this interesting and beautiful bird (I know what you're thinking, but you ought to see them flying!), especially a week after they were taken off the endangered species list.
Letter "Z,"
for Judy's Alphabet Shape Challenge...

A special thanks to Judy Horton http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/), for this fun challenge!

For some reason, the letter "Z" shape proved difficult for me to find. I got lucky one morning a couple of days ago and found this "Z" being cast by the morning sun through a walking bridge structure at a local park...

Thanks so much for your views and comments!
