July 22. 2014  I think these would make a beautiful arrangement.
July 22, 2014 Once in a photography classes I had a professor say   "There is no such thing as luck in photography, you either know what you are doing or you don't"        WELL.... I must say I disagree...because this was pure luck. The DF's were buzzing everywhere and I didn't even know I had captured the second one I was so focused (so to speak) on the first one.    I realize it is not the best  shot technically but you have to admit that "incoming"  face is just too cute!  ALSO....Verizon is coming out today to test a signal for wireless internet, they have a new tower in our area and think they may be able to get us service!  Cross your fingers!  Have a happy Tuesday Jeanne

7/21/14 - Young Lady at the Cherry Creek Art Festival; I loved her red hair, the interesting outfit and her animated expression.  There were so many people in this booth that I had a very difficult time getting a clear shot of her.  Best to view this in the larger size.  Regarding the question about the processing of this shot, I mostly made adjustments in RAW but I think I did do a bit of Topaz Adjust processing on this shot, as well.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the videographer.  Much appreciated!  Rick Willis has been in Colorado Springs for a week, staying at the same rv park as we are.  I really enjoyed getting to know Rick and his wife, Joyce, a bit better.  We first met in Tucson last spring.  They are off for more adventures tomorrow morning, so I'm sure we'll get to see a lot of great shots in the future!
21.07.14 - Thank-you :)  We did it! Thanks again to everyone who has supported out Kickstarter campaign in any way, we hit our target last night so everyone connected to Tell Them of Us breathed a big sigh of relief. The way crowd funding works is that if you don't hit the target you don't get a penny, so we were a little anxious for a while. There is a little treat for everyone on our Kickstarter site now, check the latest update; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1690634677/tell-them-of-us
July 22.  While I was quickly sneaking a picture of a baby bluebird, I had no idea I was ruining the image with our reflection taking over the eyeball.  Lesson learned.

07-22-2014 "Show of Valor"  This piece of art is by Stephen Herrero and is a limited edition.  The light in the room was not the best but his piece is amazing.  The detail is amazing.  It is made of fiberglass.  The eyes looked so very real.  It is impressive.  I also liked that it was displayed in front of a mirror so you could see both sides.  Thanks for your comments on my crepe myrtle yesterday.  I always like to see the different colors blooming this time of year.    Art let me know that my profile photo wasn't showing up on my homepage nor when I commented.  Of course when I'm signed in it shows.  I have gone in and changed the photo and the new one shows on my homepage but when I'm posting the old one shows up.  I didn't check when I finished commenting last night.  Please let me know if you do not see my photo by my comments.  Then I would love to have any suggestions on how to fix it!  Donna
07.22.14  Thistle and Bees  Thanks for the comments yesterday. Here is a link that has the Pebble beach Corporation logo on it. Getting out and taking pictures is a challenge. If i continue to participate in the current challenge, I may resort to posting logo related photos. Thanks. http://www.pebblebeach.com/about/pebble-beach-company-foundation  Chemo didn't go well. We did the infusion but my WBC count was 900. You can read my post with the Sisterhood's picture.   I am glad to have a project to work on with my brother and his t-shirt designs. I miss being able to get out and take pictures. I take the camera to chemo on Mondays... and when I have the energy I try to take El Jay somewhere--I don't always take the camera. With Monday's low WBC count, I am suppose to stay home until I have had both shots. Thursday is Pioneer Day in Utah--the Boy would like to attend a parade.   Jeddy will be moving here next week. This is a huge sacrifice for him. He is only 19-years old. I am finding that I need more help on a day to day basis with Logan, my brother and household things. Even time sitting at a computer wears me out quickly. Yet (!!!) I am getting better.  Jeddy Grant needs help loading the uHaul on August 28th in Albuquerque. If you can help please contact him.  He is also a little short cash-wise. We have enough for a uHaul and most of the gas $$$. But nothing for food or a hotel room Monday night--as of this mrning he needs less than $100 to get to Riverdale. I hate asking. If anyone can help... my paypal account is indigo_sage@yahoo.com. Anything would be helpful. Thanks.
7/22/2014 ~ Spires  Saint John the Baptist Catholic Church, Savannah, Georgia. Construction of this beautiful cathedral began in 1873, and completed in 1876. The spires were added in 1896. In 1898 a fire nearly destroyed the cathedral. All that remained were the outer walls and two spires. It was immediately rebuilt. While there we planned on touring the inside, but it was so hot in Savannah I ended up with a headache and we never got to see the inside. But I have a plan in place to return! In the meantime you can see the inside on the cathedral's website HERE  Thank you for the nice comments on yesterday's Florida Beach shot!
Several weeks ago I posted a composite of shots of the bloom spike of this plant shooting through the roof of the conservatory at Matthaei Botanical Gardens (http://smu.gs/1yVQjTN)  For more than a week, blossoms on the lowest branches of the spike have been opening, releasing pollen and nectar.  The latter has been dripping down and making the ground sticky and slippery.  Here is another composite showing the plant's status as of last Friday.  DP203-2014  Posted July 22; created ditto from shots taken July 18 Full resolution versions of the four panels are in a gallery devoted to the arid plants in this conservatory, starting here:  http://smu.gs/WwBRDH  Title:  Blooming Update for Agave Americana 'Variegata'
Salem Street: Salem St is a narrow street located in Boston's North End. It's lined with small shops, cafes, bakeries and - especially - restaurants . The North End is revered for it's amazing Italian cuisine. 2 hour waits for a table are common place and when you eat there, you'll understand why. Happy Tuesday!  07/22/2014
