050211  Tree in Shohola Falls    Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.
June 11, 2011    This is the same abandoned station where the marching line of gas pumps were found.  You can see that shot posted on June 5th here if you missed it.  I know many of you have seen it because of the wonderful comments which are very appreciated.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Daily-Photos-2010/12484643_ezMcC#1367630283_kkxm8S9    This is another set of gas pumps that are older in style, and were in front of the abandoned station.  As I mentioned before, there were 100s of pumps around this place.  It was so cool.    And here's an old sign that was in front of this old place- http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Signs/7752337_483tx//1061733754_#1376000970_H7MsspG    This was such a cool place and it brought back lots of memories for me from days gone by.  I hope you all enjoy it.    Linda
8/2/14 - Vintage gas pump at the Gas Transportation Museum, Embudo, NM  Thanks for your warm response to my shot of the wire cables and shadows.  We're going to a car show this morning; I'm hoping to get some good logos, as well as some nice car shots.
Tuesday, September 6, 2011             "TIERFUL"  "Colors are the smiles of nature" ~ Leigh Hunt  Worthy of a return visit............"The Field of Zinnias"  Remember the zinnias in yesterday's POTD? Well, these were captured in the same field. I love how these zinnias appear to be in tiers, overlapping, and/or cascading. I also love the mixture of colors. The frames were applied from PicNik.  Always popular with gardeners for their lush and lovely appearance, zinnias are traditional symbols of lasting love and good memories. Zinnias are longtime garden favorites for colorful, round flowers. I was told that these flexible hot-weather plants don’t gain from being planted early and stand still until weather warms up.

Tuesday, December 27, 2011     "BROKEN, BUT BEAUTIFUL"  "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one." ~ C.S. Lewis  No flash and SOOC, other than the border.......final Christmas theme post of the year:)  It was Christmas in November when I received this!    My best friend (of 23 years) and I exchanged Christmas gifts when she (and her family) were here during the Thanksgiving holidays. I think she's started a tradition of giving me a Christmas tree ornament each year. Unfortunately, when I pulled this one out of the bag, it was broken (most likely during shipping), although you probably cannot tell in this photo. It's an angel inside the ornament that's suppose to sit atop the base and light up once the light switch is turned on. Actually, it's amazing how much I like the fact that the angel appears to be sitting at the base of the ornament holding a picture. Nevertheless, it's beautiful and I love and appreciate it. The frame was applied from PicNik.   View the 2010 ornament here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Project365/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2011/15049328_sF4n2j#1192553561_ebJxx-A-LB  The glass bowl in the background is the one in the Thursday, December 22, 2011 post, which can be viewed here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Project365/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2011/15049328_sF4n2j#1595885649_SVSM4TJ-A-LB  I wholeheartedly appreciate your comments on my photos and I enjoy perusing your outstanding photos.   Five days until a new year......2012.   Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!!!  ***#6 photo of the day***  (received ornament 11/25/2011; photo taken 12/1/2011)
Wednesday, July 27, 2011       "GLOWS OF GRATITUDE"    "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross     Remember yesterday's pic? Well, these are views of the solid colored glass windows on each of the three entry doors to the chapel (from the inside). I pp'd this one; it's my 31st remix.    My nephew attends this SEC university and is pursuing a degree in kinesiology; he's doing quite well, and loves it! It is one of the top SEC universities in Mississippi and the prettiest SEC university campus I've toured.  Also, the campus spirit is pleasant, warm, friendly, and accepting of various nationalities and ethnicities. The official website is here: http://www.msstate.edu. and the complete gallery of campus photos are in the "Colleges/Universities" album.     Thanks so much for your views and comments on my "Angel" post yesterday. I thoroughly enjoy perusing and commenting on your fabulous pics, also.     It's hump day; have a great one!!

Monday, May 16, 2011  "442"  (pp version)  "It allows you to say things that sound very dramatic and get away with it. If you had characters in modern fiction say the same things as they're driving down the street in an Oldsmobile, they'd sound ludicrous." ~ Terry Goodkind  Here's another Lgood inspired automobile capture. This cobalt blue baby was one of my hubby's favorites in the show. Unfortunately, there was not an information card, but while we were at the car show, my hubby (who loves antique cars) informed me that this is a "442 Cutlass Olds." He also stated that the chrome on the rear bumper, in all likelihood, has been redone. You can see a glimpse of my black / white animal print jacket and red cape in the bumper. There was a chilly breeze and the temps had dropped to mid 50s. Yes, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped.   The original can be viewed here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/16609546_tdrqK#1274849706_xFHRmdP  Also, I did some research and according to Wikipedia, "The Oldsmobile 442 (pronounced four-four-two) was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. It was introduced as an option package for F-85 and Cutlass models sold in the United States beginning with the 1964 model year. It became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971, then reverted to an option through the mid-1970s. Oldsmobile revived the name in the 1980s on the rear-wheel drive Cutlass Supreme and early 1990s as an option package for the new front-wheel drive Cutlass." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_442)  Furthermore, I am overwhelmingly and humbly appreciative of your comments on yesterday's "Antique Chevy." It landed in the #2 spot. Congrats to my friend sharkbayte whose "Clouds" pic was #1. View it here: http://sharkbayte.smugmug.com/Photography/2011-Daily-Photos/15280496_zofpQ#1291649048_zdNjmgz  Enjoy today; a "blue" Monday may not be so bad after all (smile).  ***#1 photo of the day and all time***  Show Your Ride Car Show  Memphis, TN
Saturday, July 2, 2011                    "1955 FORD FAIRLANE TOWN SEDAN"  “Vision without execution is just hallucination.” ~ Henry Ford  Here's my very 1st HDR pp image........best viewed in XLarge!!   A special thanks to Lgood's husband Bill (owner of a Ford Fairlane) who stated that this is "a 1955 (maybe a '66) but nearly certain it is a '55."  This multi-colored Ford Fairlane Town Sedan was my favorite in the show. I love the bright colors that changed depending upon the angle from which it was viewed. If you look real close, you will see reflections galore in this one, most notably a red Chevy pickup that was parked beside it.    According to Wikipedia, "The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model sold between 1955 and 1970 by the Ford Motor Company in North America. The name was taken from Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan. Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-size car but became a mid-size car from the 1962 model year. The mid-sized model spawned the Australian-built Fairlane in 1967, although it was considered a large car there." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Fairlane_Americas)   Check out the original here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/17330226_SSNF6P#1361726886_85RFQx2.  Your comments regarding my first "major" pp work on yesterday's T-Bird were both inspiring and appreciated. By the way, my hubby and our two sons are the "vintage vehicle/car buffs."   ***#4 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 6/11/2011)
Thursday, February 2, 2012    "SUNNY SIDE UP"    "Be a rose which gives fragrance, even to those who crush it. ~ Author Unknown    SOOC comes this yellow rose of...........Arizona, and not Texas:)!     According to history, yellow is  a bright, sunny color that evokes a feeling of warmth and happiness. Akin to those shared with a true friend are the warm feelings associated with the yellow rose. It is also an ideal symbol for joy and friendship, in contrast to the romantic meanings attributed to other roses. Additionally, yellow roses can send the perfect message of appreciation and platonic love without the romantic subtext of other colors. Joy and delight are representative of the color yellow and an ideal way to brighten someone's day who may be feeling down.  Finally, a yellow rose can bring out the smile in quite a way that no other flower can.     I sure do thank you all for your comments; they are very much appreciated.    Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday.

Sunday, April 22, 2012    "THE PHOENIX"     "Hold fast to your dreams, for without them life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly." ~ Langston Hughes     SOOC........a different twist, but nevertheless, here's my contribution to fellow SmugMugger L. Perry Fuqua's "Earth Day" Challenge.     Of course, the colors were the initial attraction to this work of art.  This photo was taken as we were walking through the airport to await the boarding of our flight for home from Phoenix, AZ to Houston, TX. Unfortunately, I didn't get the artist name.    DISCLAIMER: The following views are not my personal views, opinions, or beliefs. The texts are included as background, informational purposes only. A card was given to me by a young man who was standing in the store after I snapped this picture. The following texts were written on it. Coincidentally, when I uploaded the Arizona photos and started putting the dates on them, this one just so happened to fall on today. With that said........    "The Phoenix" is associated with triumph over adversity, and that which rises out of ashes. It is symbolic of hope, purity, faith, eternity, and light. The Phoenix not only represents immortality but also an individual who stands apart from the rest, a person of rare qualities."    Additionally, "Only one Phoenix exists at a time. When the mystical bird felt its death was near, it would rebuild a nest of aromatic twigs in which it burned from the heat of its own body. The Phoenix would be consumed by the flames and then would resurrect from the ashes. The Phoenix's flight has been said to represent the capacity to leave the world and its problems behind, flying toward the sun in clear pure skies." ~ Reprinted texts from the card    Thanks for your comments on the collectible "Salt and Pepper Shakers" that landed in the #1 spot yesterday.    Have a beautiful and blessed Sunday.    Sky Harbor International Airport  Phoenix, AZ    ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***    (photo taken 12/31/2011)
Sunday, May 15, 2011   "ANTIQUE CHEVY"  (pp version)  "Keep calm and drive a Chevy!" ~ Unknown Author  Lgood is one of the absolute best at capturing automobile shots and their reflections, and I immediately thought of her when I spotted this GM classic. Unfortunately, there wasn't an information card, so I am unsure as to the year of this "oldie but goodie." My hubby's guess is it's a "1930 something Chevy." The pink sign made spectators chuckle. It warned, "UNLESS YOU ARE NUDE.....PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH MY CHEVY! BUCKLES, BELTS, AND BUTTONS SCRATCH."   As you can see, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped. The original image can be viewed here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/gallery/16609546_tdrqK#!i=1274849067&k=9MMHm66&lb=1&s=A  Your comments on yesterday's "Got Mail" POTD are really appreciated; you all are really a wonderful community of photographers who are also supportive and helpful. God is and has been exceptionally kind to all of us; have a blessed and safe Sunday, everyone.
