May 26, 2015  This shot of Mt. Rainier was taken quite a few years ago, but it's still one of my favorites.  It was taken in July and you can see there was still a good bit of snow on the mountain.  It is a beautiful sight.  I ran across this old photo again recently and added an HDR filter in Topaz.  "That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains." ~ Steve Jobs  Thank you for your comments and critiques.  For everyone that has to go back to work today - hang in there, it's a short week.  Cheers! Linda http://www.lgood.smugmug.com

Tuesday, May 26, 2015  "JUST THE TWO OF US"  "The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment." ~ Dorothy Nevill  This is one that I had "in the can" for Judy Horton's (aka fotoeffects) proposed challenge (that never unfolded) of submitting photos that depict song titles. The title is based on the song "Just the Two of Us," a 1981 R&B single written by Bill Withers, William Salter and Ralph MacDonald, which was recorded by Grover Washington, Jr. and Bill Withers. The song appeared on Washington's album, " Winelight."  Leland, Mississippi is most noted for being the boyhood home of Jim Henson, creator of the Muppets. Along Highway 82 as you enter Leland you will find the Jim Henson Delta Boyhood Exhibit, made possible through a gift from the Henson Family. The Museum houses many artifacts and memorabilia from Henson's early creative years, and is a must-see for any Kermit, Muppets, and Sesame Street enthusiast.  Thanks so much for your kind comments on my "Memorial Day" 2015 collage yesterday. There were truly many wonderful tributes to our fallen "heroes and sheroes."  Have a terrific Tuesday and enjoy being in good company!

June 27, 2013    “Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.” ~Robert A. Heinlein     And here's another "Granddaughter" shot.  This is 13-year old Ashlee and our cat Luckey.  Obviously, Luckey is focused on something else.  LOL    I applied a Lomo-ish filter in Picassa.    Have a fabulous day!    Linda    Late Post:  Several of you have mentioned that Lucky was trying to get out of the shot, you are so correct!  She doesn't like the camera at all.
Monday, May 25, 2015  "MEMORIAL DAY" 2015  "Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices." ~ President Harry S. Truman   Here's another one of my "artistic creations" and I had so much fun designing and creating it. Elmer Davis declared, "This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave." This is a memoriam to all of the  military "heroes and sheroes" who made the ultimate sacrifice for America. Remember, we promised them that we wouldn't forget, ever.   Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed each year on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while in the military service. It was first enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War, and was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars.  God, bless America. America, bless God!  ***#10 photo of the day***  (created on 5/22/2015 from various photos)  My Homepage: www.GodsChild.SmugMug.com

May 26, 2015  I love this lavender-pink color.
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.
