Sunday, August 17, 2014  "A CYPRESS LAKE"  “To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” ~ Bill Bryson  SOOC, uncropped; 35mm lens  Cypress trees and reflections along the back roads of the Mississippi Delta - on Highway 7. When Trusalda Speight (aka TruImages) posted a somewhat similar photo on July 20, 2014, I commented that I had a similar photo "in the can." This is it.  Have a blessed day!  ***#17 photo of the day***  (photo taken 7/13/2014)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Pine Forest taken with my camera on the ground, these tall, thick pine trees come from every angle and reach to the sky.
Saturday, August 9, 2014  "SUN-SATIONAL SUNFLOWER" (aka "Helianthus")  "Advice from a sunflower: Be outstanding in your field. Hold your head high. Spread seeds of happiness. Feed the birds. Think solar. Keep on the sunny side. Grow up!" ~ As seen on a t-shirt  It's uncropped, but I did adjust the exposure's shadows to 100% in PM. This darkened the background and eliminated some of the surrounding distracting flowers, while minimizing the look of others.  Have a bright and sunshiny day!

Wednesday, August 13, 2014  "SHOE - LA - LA"  "I own about 300 pairs of shoes. When I start to go over 300, I have mini-sales from my closet and give the money to charity. It's my way of recycling; I feel like I can give back to the universe." ~ Stacy London  Did you know that shoes tell a lot more about you than you can imagine? Of course, it's totally not true that every woman loves shoes. I love shoes and cute, humorous, interesting, unusual, and  whimsical signages. I found this one inside the shop where I purchased my new camera bag, which was my daily post for Wednesday, July 16, 2014. So, this is for all of us shoe fanciers (including but not limited to all of the women in my family, my sister-girlfriends, and several colleagues) who absolutely love and own hundreds of pairs of shoes. And might I add that "Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life":).  Have a "high-stepping" Wednesday!  ***#13 photo of the day***  (photo taken 6/4/2014; applied one of PM's effects on 8/12/2014)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Day 229: Hoboken NJ Street Art - August 19.  This is a small segment of a wall mural created in 2005 as a joint effort by the Hoboken community to celebrate the 50th year anniversary of the city.  Students submitted artwork depicting their views of the highlights of the city and two women artists/teachers merged them into an overall mural design that was painted and funded by volunteers.  When time allows I will post more images of the delightful, creative artwork on the wall.
Saturday, August 16, 2014  "YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE" Abstract  "Courage is looking fear right in the eye and saying, ‘Get the hell out of my way, I’ve got things to do.' " ~  Unknown Author  What a difference a day makes! Here's one of my favorite abstracts; I created it from the sunflower that was my post for yesterday.    View or review the original, SOOC photo here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/DailyPhotos/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2014/i-q3BJbwr/A  Have a safe weekend!  ***#3 photo of the day***  (abstract created on 8/13/2014; original photo taken 7/12/2014)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com

Monday, August 18, 2014  "PURPLE AND GREEN COLEUS LEAVES" (aka "Solenostemon scutellarioides")  "Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names." ~ John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States of America (USA)  SOOC, uncropped; 35mm lens  Coleuses are tropical perennials and one of the best plants for colorful foliage. This color combination is my favorite!  Have a marvelous Monday and a great start to the work week!

Bruce’s Steakhouse, Omaha NE  People always ask me what the best steakhouse is in Omaha, and unfortunately I don’t have a very good answer because we eat so much steak at home that we rarely go out to steakhouses.  So if I had to answer I’d say Bruce’s Steakhouse, located at our house.  My stepdad Bruce is a master griller and makes the best steaks.  Another food photo from our time in Omaha.  One of the food photographers I follow uses this overhead perspective often, so I gave it a try.  If you're curious about food photography, Penny de los Santos is an award winning food photographer to check out.  Critiques are always welcome.

This is the spooky graveyard of St Mary's church next to Whitby Abbey which overlooks the town.  It is accessed by 199 steps from the harbour.  Bram Stoker stayed in the town of Whitby repeatedly whilst writing 'Dracula'.  He was apparently inspired by the atmosphere here.  In the novel, Dracula is shipwrecked off the coast of Whitby.  Many visitors to St. Mary's churchyard and the Abbey search the hillside for the grave of Dracula - forgetting that he is a work of fiction.

August 18, 2014 Loved the textures and patterns in this, especially the "lacy" edges.   There were SO  many great trademark posts yesterday.  It amazes me how many things we see everyday and don't really look at the detail.  Thank you for the challenge Rick!  Have a great week Jeanne
