August 2, 2009  Noogies.......Traverse City, Michigan - A good time was had by all.      This started as a sweet little shot of my daughter Jill, and 3 of her boys giving me a silhouette in the sunset and ended with, lets give Mommy a noogie.

August 28,   Night on the Beach  Mackenzie Beach Vancouver Island, B.C
We went out for a drive in the country. I LOVE that.   Took shots of an old barn. (see barn shots gallery) . My first choice was one of the barn but Rob loves this one.  Sunset over mini golf ``. We stopped at the driving range and the giraffe is standing guard over the little putters with number 8 hole lighthouse being bathed in the sunset light.` Sept.9é12
February 27, 2013    Another old, abandoned building in the mining, Ghost Town of Silver City, Nevada.  I really wonder why all the apparent openings in the roof.  But alas - as I mentioned yesterday, there wasn't anyone around on this Sunday to ask.    I processed this with Picmonkey's daguerreotype filter and rather liked the way it looked.  Here's the original shot - let me know which one you like best.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Architecture/Buildings/7752393_7Pg76q#!i=2359563656&k=2ncjGzD    Have a fantastic day today my friends!

Thursday, August 7, 2014  "GAILLARDIA" (aka "Indian Blanket")  "Photography is a tough life: you can be taken, framed, exposed, shot, captured, and hung all in the same day." ~ Author Unknown  SOOC, uncropped, flash didn't fire  I've waited a long time to photograph one of these perennial flowers; they're not prevalent in my neck of the woods. According to Wikipedia, "other names for this flower are Gaillardia pulchella (firewheel, Indian blanket, Indian blanketflower, or sundance). It is a short-lived perennial or annual flowering plant native to the Central United States. It is also the state wildflower of Oklahoma." Do you see the small raindrops?  Additionally, "Legend states the blanket flower was once all yellow and was a favorite of the Aztec Indians. Years ago, young Aztec women would decorate their hair with crowns of the golden flowers. When Cortez came to their land and killed those who were living there peacefully, the much loved flower “caught the blood of the innocents as they fell”…..and to this day the red stains remain on the flower." ~ Reprinted text from here: http://www.oodlesofinformation.com/indian-blanket-flower  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday!

Violin Posted Aug. 27, 2014  One of my favorite images from the violin project. I am working on a collage and then this project is complete. Yesterday I processed all of the photos in the gallery as my processing skills have improved since I started the project. http://lindat1.smugmug.com/Other/Violin
11/23/10 - Tree in the Fog  I have been watching and studying this tree for a couple of years now.  Whenever there is fog, it seems to stand out from the backdrop...a solitary, lonely figure.  I finally made up  my mind yesterday to figure out where to park the car to get out to take a picture...not a small feat.  I do try to stay safe, but this location is more precarious than some.  Most days I am joyful as I spend time with the kids.  My life is full of laughter and color; it's vibrant and full of life like many of my pictures.  But some days at least deep inside it is like this too.  I guess a bit of that side is slipping through today.  I stopped to think about my mother for a few minutes when I took this.  She was involved in a horrible traffic accident with a tractor trailer on a foggy morning in November just before Thanksgiving in 1985.  For me, the fog will always be more than just the fog.  Back to bright and cheery tomorrow I promise...  Thanks for your comments on Johnny and the Jon boat.  It was as serene out there as you thought.  Little wind, warm sun on our skin, very few boats out on the lake...a calming hour without the chaos of life.  HAGD, Maryann
3.10.09 - Ghost in the Machine  Ghostly goings on at Gainsborough Old Hall. I've had this idea ever since I found out that this was called the "ghost corridor", so while I was trapped inside the PC I thought I'd have a go at creating this. It is the first time I've experimented with layers in this way, maybe I should have made Lydia even more transparent, but hey I'm sure I'll try this again.  Those of you that haven't already seen my gallery of the Hall might want to check this out;    http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/History/GAINSBOROUGH-OLD-HALL/9662694_gb4gb#652216254_Fyruu  Thanks for the wonderful response to my silly SP yesterday, it was a lot of fun making that :)
2-02: This is another from Saturday's sunset. Several people have asked if the colors are real (natural) in yesterday's. It was taken as three bracketed exposures but only at -1, 0 and 1. Then combined in Photomatix. Then final processing in Capture NX2 (mostly brightness and focus adjustments) I didn't change any colors. I did actually have to desaturate a little because the orange and reds tend to be over saturated sometimes. I used the same processing on today's post. This one was actually taken a few minutes before the one I posted yesterday, so the clouds are more orange than red or pink
11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann

August 27, 2014 Lotus seed pod on the lake.  Thank you for your comments on yesterday's hummingbird.   I am filling 4 feeders twice daily to keep up with them.    The photo guild meeting last night was great.  They gave a demonstration on long exposures that was very informative.  I can't wait to experiment a little in BULB mode.  The light painting portion was fascinating.    Happy Wednesday! Jeanne
