20.12.14 - Sentinels  Another dusk dog walk shot, this time it is from the hill. These two trees stand on the crest of the ridge and are visible from miles away. I love trees at this time of year when you can see their true structure

May 13, 2014  This is another one of the older shots I've revisited recently.  I did some work on this one, but I couldn't get the sun sinking into the water from being so blown out.  Likely due to the photographer, and my first very cheap digital camera, a little point & shoot Sony.  Any suggestions on what I could do to help the blown out portions?  I would appreciate it.  This was taken when the group of 4 couples had hired a boat to tour in one evening.  It was great fun, and we saw a lot of the beach fronts in Jamaica.

Day 349- Chritmas Ornament Display - Dec 20. Was attracted to how the colors reflected on the ornaments and the lights and shadows - an almost abstract. This is a segment of a large display of variously colored ornaments that I came across in a neighboring town.
12-21-2014 "Emme is One"  We had a wonderful birthday celebration for our sweet Emme.  As you can see in the background she got lots of presents and in 4 days it's Christmas.  If I have any say in the matter, LOL, she will always have a BIG birthday.  My birthday is 3 days after Christmas and I know what it's like to have it and Christmas all in one week.    Thank you so very much for the comments on my faries.   Donna
Day 344- NYC Bergdof Goodman Holiday Window  - Dec 16.  This year the Bergdof Goodman holiday theme is based on celebrating the arts and there are windows devoted to music, painting, literature, theater, architecture, etc.  Absolutely beautiful  - some of the best I've seen that are not child focused.  This is an image from the music window which feature many brass instruments and the woman blowing her horn.  The relections from the buildings across the street give this image a very surrealistic effect.  God's Child I haven't forgotten -  I'm still photographing and will post the link to all of the NYC holiday images as soon as I've completed my project for this year.

December 19, 2014  As I was roaming through a folder of photos from September, I found this one that I hadn't posted.  I thought it would be fun to share even though it's out of sync with the current season.  One Sunday afternoon in September we went out in the boat with the kids and watched the grands having a great time.  They are all water babies.    I took my point & shoot camera on the boat to see what I could get of the action.  The shot was a little tricky because the boat we were riding in was bouncing & this giant inner tube that the kids were in was bouncing all over the surface of the lake.  I liked this one just for the fun of it and the different expressions on the kids faces.  Case, the oldest, on the left is obviously just having a great time and is enjoying the splash and bounce of the tube.  Abigail is (I suppose) pretending to be a surfer.  Her twin brother Benjamin (on the right) is giving his Dad the slow down signal.  Gotta love those kiddos and their different personalities.  I'll be headed home to Dallas later today.  I'll be happy to be home, and have no plans (at the moment) to do any more business travel this year.  And for that I am grateful.  Thank you for your comments and critiques.  Have a Super day!

12.21.14  Saturday morning, shortly after El Jay got up, we heard the sound of sirens and honking that sounded like the deep honk of a fire truck.  I said, "What's going on outside?"  The Boy ran to the back door and looked out and what to his wondering eye should appear, but...... He exclaimed, "Mom, Mom! Look! Look!"  I looked out and there was Santa riding on the back of a fire truck. How cool was that? I grabbed my camera and got three shots before he was around the corner, out of sight.  We ran to the front door as he traveled past the front of the house. I got a shot or two of his backside. I handed El Jay my camera and suggested he go around across to the next street, where Santa would come out and take a few more pictures. Which he did.  It is kind of cool to live in a very small town (population around 8000--but they have a good tax revenue because of the stores and businesses they brought in.) It is wonderful that the city is small enough that the city can do something like this.
December 20, 2014  Since I showed you three of the grandchildren tubing on the lake in the photo yesterday, I thought I'd show you a fun shot of their youngest sister Eleanor.  She's all tuckered out from the fun and excitement and has decided to take a little nap at the back of the 'big boat'.  Eleanor is 3-years old.  I kind of feel a little like Eleanor.  After two straight weeks on the road on business trips, getting home late yesterday afternoon (after a 3+ hour delay of the flight from Birmingham) from the most recent trip and then hosting Bill's company Christmas party (100 people) at our house last night, I think Eleanor has the right idea.  Maybe a nap is in order for me sometime later today.  :-)  But not a long nap - I have to go to the grocery store and get food for the first of our family Christmas parties (with my sister - 17 people,) and get all the kids presents wrapped before 1:00 Sunday afternoon.  The next family Christmas is 5:00 on December 27th - we'll have 22-25 people here.  I'm looking forward to the week off between Christmas and New Years.  And, I'm working Monday & Tuesday (12/22 & 23)m but at least I'm working in Dallas & not on the road.  I'm not complaining - I love the family time!  I'm just hoping to sneak in a couple of cat naps over the next week.    Have a great day my friends!  Thank you for your comments and critiques.  Linda, http://lgood.smugmug.com
Shelby has a playdate…. with her cousin, Ruby.

Yes, they are playing & it went on for hours.

Although Shelby looks like the tough guy here, Ruby, (the bulldog) who is only 8 months old, can certainly shell out her fair share of rough play!
