Friday, May 29, 2015  "I feel like a little kid who just walked into a candy store. I think that's something to smile about." ~ Brandon Boyd  Here's another one of my "artistic creations." It's also my third entry for this week's (week 3 of 4) "Lexicon Challenge" proposed by Judy Horton (aka fotoeffects).  A Lexicon is an unfamiliar word for a familiar item, object, or thing. The lexicon for this photo is "SWEETMEATS" (noun) which, according to my Lexicon Dictionary, is defined as:   (a) Bonbons. (b) Candies. (c) Confections. (d) Foods with a high sugar content (sugar foods). (f) Sweets.  Have a "sweet" day filled with "eye candy!"  (presentation created on 5/23/2015)  My Homepage: www.GodsChild.SmugMug.com
Opalescent - exhibiting a play of colors like that of the opal.  Anna's Hummingbird - low power flash shot taken near Olympia, Wa.  I really appreciate the comments!
28.05.15 - Gone Fishing?  I've photographed this scene by the river many times, but don't think I have ever included the fishing sign before. It is all too easy to shoot everything from the standing position, but occasionally it pays to get down low or shoot through a fence as I did here.
05-29-2015 - Fractal Paroxysm  The twenty three Moons of Moria are on everyone’s  must see vacation list.  They glow different colors and synchronicity.  Colors will sometimes move from one to the other or pulsate.  Musical vibrations accompany the light show covering all known aspects and "Argot".  More common terms for "ARGOT" are accent, cant, dialect, idiom, jargon, language, lingo, localism, patois, patter, pronunciation, provincialism, regionalism, slang, terminology, tongue, vernacular and vocabulary.       Link to Photo  Without Frame   
5/29/15 - For the Lexicon Challenge:  girouette - weathervane.  We owned this particular weather vane for about 15 years.  It was created by the artist, James Eaton and even though it has spent most of those years outdoors in Colorado's harsh climate, it still looks almost new.  I love the face which seems to have slightly different expressions depending upon your pov.  Thanks for your warm response to the work of art by Andy Tirada.  I'm glad so many of you also had a strong feeling for it.  I'm looking forward to seeing all your challenge entries.
29/05/15 Very nice  and warm today. Went to Burlington to see the new pier built over the lake , but got sidetracked . I took lots of shots in the library gardens and Rob spent time with an old friend.    I love lupins and this is my favorite color in the lot.  Thanks to all for the comments on my lakeside scene from the 28th.  Will get to lots of commenting time tomorrow.  Happy Friday to all!!   xxxxx
January 7 2011.    I am so cold, longing for spring. My chum told me that a large number of friends far away have fallen down.
May 29, 2015  According to Wikipedia, a Lexicon is:  "the vocabulary of a person, language, or branch of knowledge."    In the Obibwe language, Ninaabem means husband.  So this is my 3rd entry in Judy's Lexicon challenge.  This is my husband Bill doing something in his workshop at home.  He's always doing something, if it's not for himself or us, building or repairing something or doing R&D research and work for Americase, then he's helping others with their projects, car repairs or whatever the neighbors bring to him to get fixed.  Just a few days ago one of our neighbors brought over a Ford Thunderbird concept car to fix.  That turned into quite an ordeal for Bill.  But he loves it, and is happiest when he's fixing and figuring out problems.  Bill says that mechanics invented most of the swear words.  I can't prove that, but it could be true.  LOL  "There is no such thing as too much swearing. Swearing is just a piece of linguistic mechanics. The words in-between are the clever ones."  ~ Peter Capaldi  Thank you for your comments and critiques!  Have a industrious and productive day today my friends!  Linda http://www.lgood.smugmug.com
April 10, 2013    This is a national award winner and a stunning 1958 Buick Super.  You've seen a couple of shots of this car before, but I particularly liked this one showing the full, heavy metal body in the park setting.  It's a real beauty.  It's owner had me take lots of photos for him and he used one on his show board (not seen here).  A showboard is what many classic car owners have the details the unique characteristics of their car, or how/who built it, etc.  For example the one I have for my Mach 1 talks about it being a one-of-one car, and what makes it so.    To see a couple of other photos of this glorious American car, click on the below links.  The first one is my #4 most popular photo, and the second is a stylized version of the first.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_4GBBqD#!i=1230527772&k=frS6Mgb    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_4GBBqD#!i=1230532693&k=w2np5xM    "I know a lot about cars, man. I can look at any car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming." ~Mitch Hedberg    Have a shiny, perfect chrome sort of day today my friends!    Linda
April 11, 2013    Proud and loving the sun.  These giant sunflowers are just spectacular when you see them in the fields, it's just a riot of color that can be intoxicating.  Check this out in the larger sizes to see the bee busily going about his business and the other bug on one of the petals.    "Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men and animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock."  ~ Henry Ward Beecher     Have a glorious day full of sunshine & love today my friends.

05-23-2015 - The pronghorn (Antilocapra Americana) is a species of artiodactyl mammal indigenous to interior western and central North America. Though not an antelope, it is often known colloquially in North America as the prong buck, pronghorn antelope,cabri (native American), or simply antelope because it closely resembles the true antelopes of the Old World and fills a similar ecological niche due to convergent evolution.

ZARA  The ultra modern Spanish clothing store, and the beautiful architecture of Old Town Pasadena.   The first time I shopped in one of their stores was in Madrid in early 2000 - then they had stores in London and in NYC.  Now, as you can see, they are coast-to-coast in the US. Zara was described by Louis Vuitton as "possibly the most innovative and devastating retailer in the world" .  Thank you for all the great comments on RED yesterday!
