04-17-2014 "Lighter Clematis"  This is another clematis I have in my yard.  It has somehow gotten into a lorapedlem that is growing next to it.  It is supposed to be growing up an arbor.  It is a lighter color than the deep purple I posted a few days ago.  I love the color of this one because it is so bright.  To answer Art's question about some the children at Horses for Handicap not being photographed, here is what I know.   It is a requirement that all children in school or participating in events where photos will be taken that there is signed parental consent before their photo can be made.  Even before I retired schools were required to have this consent before the students were photographed our recorded on video or audio.  I am assuming this is throughout the nation because I know that students participating in national honor choirs have to have this release.  If one child does not have the consent the event cannot be photographed or recorded in any manner.  I think part of it goes back to how easy it is to get photos of children on public media like Facebook, Twitter and others.  You know there are some SICK people out there and we have to protect the innocent.  The honor choir I just chaired had 130 high school students and before I could take any photos or have the concert professionally recorded I had to have the parents sign a consent form.    It tickled me that you all were so complimentary of the sweet smiles of Sutton and Lily on yesterday's post.  I can't wait to read them the comments.  You are most gracious and I certainly appreciate them all. Donna
17.04.14 - Look Up!  It was a grey day yesterday, then a few minutes before sunset this happened! This is a 2 shot photomerge panorama taken in our back garden, if only I'd had time to get down to the river for some reflections, but we had no warning that something like this was in prospect.
4-17-14. Green Tree Frog. La Chua Trail Boardwalk, Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, Gainesville, Florida. 2014.  Dozens of visitors walked right by this little tree frog as it rested, hidden in shade of the fence on the rail of the boardwalk into the Prairie. It cooperated nicely when I brought children over to have a closer look. We have several green colored tree frogs here in Florida, but you can tell this one is a Green Tree Frog by the bold white stripe and the golden speckles on its back.

Can you figure it out?    DP107-2014  Posted April 17; processed ditto    Even at highest zoom in Photoshop I can't see any connection between the two small tilted icicles and the roof line.  Yet all the icicles in the shot were stationary when I took it.  Unless there was a temporary point of fusion between the larger of the 'floating' icicles and the large one it seems to intersect with, I don't see what was supporting it.  I've cropped the relevant section of the top portion of the icicles, enlarged it, and posted it here (http://smu.gs/1l61uGl) to make it easier to see what is going on.  I tried adding that as an inset to this shot, but it disfigured it so, covering up too much of the scene, that I decided to make it a separate post in my 'Icicle Mania' gallery.    Taken April 16, 2014  (Title:  No Visible Means of Support)    Many thanks to those of you who found my late posts of the past few days and left comments.  Much appreciated.

 5th year Pic 153 - 12-Apr-2014.   LOOK THERE! He is taking your photo! - Worli Koliwada, Mumbai         Worli Koliwada info     Critiques welcome!     It was an honour to share #1 place with Terry on 12th April. Thank you all!
April 17 2014 Now that the "summer" driving season is here  This time last year it was $3.90 and it went to $4.47 by early June
 5th year Pic 156 - 15-Apr-2014.   Lavani dance  - Republic day parade, Mumbai    Lavani is a combination of traditional song and dance performed to the beats of Dholki, a percussion instrument. Lavani is noted for its powerful rhythm and has contributed substantially to the development of Marathi folk theatre. The songs are sung in a quick tempo and mainly performed by ladies wearing nine-yard long saris, there are also men that dance in support with the lead dancer.  ADDED: Rick, I've kept the bottom part as it contains the shadows of the two dancers which I feel adds a nice element.  Terry, I tried complete B&W but looked drab with more emphasis on the shadows, taking away the attention from colourful costumes.     More Lavani info  Critiques welcome!   It was interesting to note the varied observations on the composition and an honour to see my pic at #4 place! Thank you all!
April 18, 2014 A Tall Bearded Iris in my favorite color.  They are such beautiful graceful flowers.    There was a woman there taking photos as well.  She was using a ring flash.  I was not familiar with the ring flash and she was gracious enough to explain what it was and how it worked.   I would love to hear your opinion on the ring flash for macro and if it is a worthwhile purchase?   Any other options?   I used my pop flash to get the highlights here and even though I think the light might be a bit harsh, the detail is much better than the shot taken without.    I have been busy with out of town friends visiting but will try to catch up soon. It is a beautiful day in East Texas, weeds need to be pulled, grass needs to be planted and dogs need to be played with.  Enjoy your day! Jeanne

"Lighter Clematis"

This is another clematis I have in my yard. It has somehow gotten into a lorapedlem that is growing next to it. It is supposed to be growing up an arbor. It is a lighter color than the deep purple I posted a few days ago. I love the color of this one because it is so bright.

To answer Art's question about some the children at Horses for Handicap not being photographed, here is what I know. It is a requirement that all children in school or participating in events where photos will be taken that there is signed parental consent before their photo can be made. Even before I retired schools were required to have this consent before the students were photographed our recorded on video or audio. I am assuming this is throughout the nation because I know that students participating in national honor choirs have to have this release. If one child does not have the consent the event cannot be photographed or recorded in any manner. I think part of it goes back to how easy it is to get photos of children on public media like Facebook, Twitter and others. You know there are some SICK people out there and we have to protect the innocent. The honor choir I just chaired had 130 high school students and before I could take any photos or have the concert professionally recorded I had to have the parents sign a consent form.

It tickled me that you all were so complimentary of the sweet smiles of Sutton and Lily on yesterday's post. I can't wait to read them the comments. You are most gracious and I certainly appreciate them all.
