DailyPhotos - Most Popular Today
June 4, 2012  "All we need, really, is a change from a near frigid to a tropical attitude of mind."  ~ Marjory Stoneman Douglas  I haven't had much time (none almost) to take new photos lately, so I had to dip back into some of those that are "still in the can" to get this post for today.  And, you'll likely see more in the coming days.    I believe that this is a Dracaena plant.  Help me out here PapaMugger.........  Anyway, it was a beautiful plant.  I've seen them before in the U.S. but the were smaller, potted plants.  This one was in front of one of the city buildings in Nassau, Bahamas and it was like a small tree.  I love the slender, colorful leaves.  Yes, I'm woefully behind on possessing the photos from our trip to the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.  But rest assured, I'm working on them a little bit at a time.  "-))  Frame created in PicMonkey.   I'm headed out for another week of travel in the Valley of Texas.  It will be a long, hard, hot and likely dusty week.  I'll do my best to comment in the evenings.  You guys are fantastic, and I learn so much from your work.  Have a 'colorful' day today my friends, and a wonderful week.  Linda
May 13, 2015  Thank you all for your overwhelming comments on my potd yesterday.  I am honored by your support, critiques and comments.  I'm very appreciative.  I bought an app for my iPad that makes fractals and I fully admit that I'm not very good at it yet, but it's fun to play with - it's a great distraction when I'm sitting in the airport waiting for  a plane..    This fractal  that I created with the app kind of reminded me of a surreal version of different flavors of ice cream swirling around in an old fashioned homemade ice cream freezer.  I liked the colors, and I added the frame in Ribbet.  It's rather abstract but was fun to play with.  And, it is not in any way close to the magnificent fractals created by the master of fractals:  Morgan Fractals.  "There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality." ~ Pablo Picasso  Thank you for your comments and critiques.  Have an absolutely great day!  Linda http://www.smugmug.com
Springtime has finally come to our part of the world

11/23/10 - Tree in the Fog  I have been watching and studying this tree for a couple of years now.  Whenever there is fog, it seems to stand out from the backdrop...a solitary, lonely figure.  I finally made up  my mind yesterday to figure out where to park the car to get out to take a picture...not a small feat.  I do try to stay safe, but this location is more precarious than some.  Most days I am joyful as I spend time with the kids.  My life is full of laughter and color; it's vibrant and full of life like many of my pictures.  But some days at least deep inside it is like this too.  I guess a bit of that side is slipping through today.  I stopped to think about my mother for a few minutes when I took this.  She was involved in a horrible traffic accident with a tractor trailer on a foggy morning in November just before Thanksgiving in 1985.  For me, the fog will always be more than just the fog.  Back to bright and cheery tomorrow I promise...  Thanks for your comments on Johnny and the Jon boat.  It was as serene out there as you thought.  Little wind, warm sun on our skin, very few boats out on the lake...a calming hour without the chaos of life.  HAGD, Maryann
A new beech leaf unfolded.
Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle
March 12.. Just saw these Cock Pheasants having their morning session outside my window, probably discussing territories for the coming spring
Dance on the beach.  Our small island "Fanoe" is a National park.  To celebrate this, 30 or more young people, all in white, arranged a happening on the beach. Now it is pronounced to be a World Heritage due to its unique nature. We are 3200 inhabitants and are all proud of this nomination.  Kresten Refslund
Single color . If you look at the horizon line you will see a number of windmills.  We have a lot of offshore windmill parks around our country and they produce 30 % of our total power consumption and this percentage is increasing from year to year
9.2.09 - Snow and Rain  We woke up to fresh snow again this morning, and although it was cold it was quite a pleasant day. That is, until I decided to go out and get a Daily. I had hoped to take some night snow shots around the Cathedral, but it was raining heavily! The last time I took some photos here I got a ghostly biker zooming through the shot, tonight it was a bedraggled walker. Apart from a crop to get rid of boring foreground this is straight out of camera. Despite me standing over it with an umbrella some rain managed to get on the lens, but I think it adds to the watery scene (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).  For those that like to keep an eye on our Monday Challenges mine is here;  http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/gallery/7093288_hSxt4#470456288_tRiRP
June 3, 2009  The last dance recital photo - I promise. I just finished processing and editing the final ones this afternoon.     This is the very last pose of the very last dance in both recitals - taken from the finale, which was a tribute to the Beatles.  This is Emily's jazz team. All of the jazz teams dance together during the finale.    If you want to see the video's here is a link    First half - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hkew8MXB_tA    Second half - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ugq5xp33_1s
