January 28, 2015  These yokes were on a wall that stored some of the working implements at La Hacienda del los Martinez in Taos, New Mexico.  According to Wikipedia:  "Martinez Hacienda, also known as Hacienda de los Martinez, is a Taos, New Mexico hacienda built during the Spanish colonial era. It is now a living museum listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is located on the bank of the Rio Pueblo de Taos.   Don Antonio Severino Martinez, also known as Severino Martinez, bought the property about 2 miles southwest of the Taos Plaza in 1804,[3] after relocating his family from Abiquiu to Taos that year. At first the building was a four room dwelling and then it grew as Martinez became more successful. It was made of thick adobe walls, without exterior windows. The hacienda had 2 inner courtyards, or placitas, around which a total of 21 rooms were built. It was constructed as a fortress for protection against attacks by Plains tribes, such as Comanche and Apache raiders. When there was a threat of violence, the livestock were brought into the courtyards of the hacienda for safety."  It is a wonderful living museum to visit if you find yourself in Taos.  You won't be disappointed.  Have a fantastic day today my friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
January 28, 2015  These stone carving decorate the building across the street from the National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC.  I wish I had paid more attention to the building.  On a map we can’t tell if it is the IRS or The National Archives.

27.01.15 - Under Alien Skies  I don't know how many other people saw them, but last week some guys at the Russian Federal Space Agency produced some beautiful images of world cities under alien skies. They imagined what the sky would look like with the other planets in the solar system orbiting Earth in place of the Moon, and if we orbited other stars, they were breathtaking images and I was determined to try something similar. Anyway, this is one of my efforts, a ringed planet rising behind Lincoln Cathedral at dawn, I hope you like it :)
Note:  This is NOT a B/W conversion.  It is the full color version as it came from the camera.  As proof of the color that is present, here's a link to a highly saturated version of this shot:  http://smu.gs/1uA9uz5 These strange button or pebble-like structures were mid-stream in the Huron River (seen from a low bridge over this branch of the river).  For size perspective, the largest of the flattened rounded shapes were several inches across.

Your comments are all very much appreciated.
March 12, 2013    Here's a shot of the sign above the entry of the Bucket of Blood Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada.  According to the Saloon's website:  In spite of its sinister name, 'the Bucket of Blood Saloon' gives off the charm of the old time hey-days with its many hanging lamps and mirrors. Memories of a time long ago await the visitor wandering in to the bar for a cold drink in this cool oasis.    "the BUCKET of BLOOD Saloon"-"the Original". This structure constructed in 1876 after the great fire of 1875 which took up to a thousand structures of the town. Most of the towns core buildings were lost or sustained damage,unfortunately the first structure that previously occupied this location, like alot of the other towns buildings of that time was completely destroyed. Though the building you are currently viewing has gone through several renovations, iterations and operations since 1876, it like many of the other Historical buildings throughout Virginia City survive as living history.    The masonry walls of the Old BUCKET predate the great fire of 1875. Shadows of doorways recall a time when enclosed stairs led down to the Boston Saloon. The BUCKET of BLOOD has long served as a local landmark in the center of Virginia City. Until recently no one realized that the Boston Saloon lay under an asphalt cap to the rear of the building.    The discovery of the Boston Saloon location in 1997, together with a subsequent test excavation, demonstrates that the site is rich with artifacts and has national importance. This business stayed at a single location through most of its existence, making it an anomaly at the outset. Defying the odds, remnants of the saloon survive in the archaeological record, escaping 125 years of development and bottle collecting. An asphalt parking lot currently caps the property, which the Comstock Archaeology Center excavated in September 2000. The Center is still completing analysis and cataloguing over the years. Pending funding, one or more exhibits will open at various locations in the future.

This shot has a psuedo HDR filter applied, and I liked the way it enhanced all the wood in the shot.    Have a fantastic day my friends!    Linda
Completed in 1914, Hawthorn Hill in Dayton, Ohio, was designed by Wilbur and Orville Wright with the aid of the Dayton architectural firm of Schenck and Williams. As the Wrights' fame grew so did their need for a larger home that could better accommodate their many guests. Therefore, with the consent of their sister Katharine, the Wright's purchased a 17-acre wooded tract named Hawthorn Hill for the many hawthorn trees covering the hillside. In 1912, shortly after approving the final plans for the house, Wilbur died. Orville dedicated himself to overseeing the construction of the residence, spending as many hours as possible at the construction site.     Hawthorn Hill was host to many notable guests such as Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Carl Sandburg, Admiral Richard Byrd, King Constantine of Greece and President Franklin D. Roosevelt.  One of the most famous guests of Hawthorn Hill arrived on June 22, 1927. Charles Lindbergh, returning to St. Louis just weeks after his nonstop flight over the Atlantic Ocean, stopped in Dayton to visit Orville Wright.     Following Orville's death January 30, 1948, his family placed the home for sale. Edward Deeds of the National Cash Register Corporation (NCR) purchased the estate, which is still used as a guesthouse for overseas visitors and dignitaries.
