Good Year Blimp...  The term Goodyear Blimp has traditionally referred to any one of a fleet of airships operated by the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, used mainly for advertising and capturing aerial views of live sporting events on television. The term blimp itself is defined as a non-rigid airship – without any internal structure, the pressure of lifting gas contained within the airship envelope maintains the vessel's shape. Since the launch of the Pilgrim in 1925, Goodyear has generally owned and operated airships of this type in its global public relations fleet. However, Goodyear is currently in the process of replacing its three U.S. non-rigid airships (blimps) with three new semi-rigid airships, each of which will have a rigid internal frame. Although technically incorrect, Goodyear plans to use "blimp" in reference to these new semi-rigid models. Wingfoot One, the first such model in Goodyear's U.S. fleet, was christened on August 23, 2014, near the company's world headquarters in Akron, Ohio. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goodyear_Blimp  Thanks much for your views and comments!  22 October 2014

September 7, 2013  This is a shot from underneath the Mesa Arch - shot after having been there well before sunrise, but the cloud cover didn't give us the glowing red of the iconic shots you've seen.    Me, and 5 other photographers from all over the world waited for the sun to rise. One man was there from Sweden - he was certainly the one that traveled the furthest of the group gathered there that morning.  After realizing that we weren't going to get the iconic shot we started to pack up and leave,  But me and some of the others started taking different shots from and around the Mesa Arch.  For this shot, I was "sitting" on the rocks at the bottom of the arch.  I hope you can see the formation in the distance that is called The Old Washerwoman (check this photo out in Xlarge).    From this vantage point, it's pretty easy to imagine that the structure in the distance does in fact look like a woman washing laundry on a rock.    Constructive critiques are welcome  Have a great day!  Linda
10-23-2014 "Cotton Pickin' Time"  Actually a lot has already been picked.  We saw this field and it looked like  nothing had been done to prepare  it to be picked.  They spray some kind of poison on it so the leaves and plants actually die before they pick it.  That way the  pickers get only the cotton.  If this field had been sprayed it was recently because it still had a lot of leaves.  It's amazing that so many things we take for granted are made from this plant.    I appreciate your comments on my photos and enjoyed the ones on the camel yesterday.  Yes it is a long way from home.  We were also told to be careful because it would spit on us.  It never did, thankfully. Donna

Nana, a very cute puppy - Jan 24 2009  Today my Caroline had to do her license test agility with Blue (which they passed easily), time to see our agility friend again and some new puppies. This little gal stole my heart instantly, good job she's already taken ;-) So I have to settle with some pictures of her.
1-16: Thursday morning we woke up to thick fog again. It lasted till about noon. I was able to go out on my lunch break and take some shots along the river right after the fog lifted. The fog had frozen to the tree branches and bushes. I was able to get some shots before it all melted.
