9/15/14 - Hollyhock; I just liked the backlit flower petals, as well as the hairy stems.  I think this is worth viewing in the largest size  Thanks for your response to my "orange" shot for Indigo's Color Challenge.  Indigo challenged us to post a blue image for prostate awareness on September 28 and to post a pink shot on, I think, the last Sunday of October for breast cancer awareness.  On the other Sundays of September and October, she challenged us to post an image of primarily a single color...we pick the color each week and could even repeat a color if we choose.  Thanks for this challenge, Indigo!
Court of the Patriarchs seen from the Virgin River, Zion National Park, Utah  Zion is a great place to photograph in the spring with the fresh green of the trees and spring vegetation contrasting with the red sandstone cliffs and peaks.

Monday, September 15, 2014  "PORSCHE 918 SPYDER CONCEPT" (2010)  "Fast cars like Porsches and Ferraris - they are things of beauty." ~ Rod Stewart  This concludes the "Dream Car" 2014 series. Thanks for your views, comments, and.........patience:). Yesterday, was the final day of the "Dream Cars" exhibit at the High Museum of Art.  SOOC, uncropped; flash was not permitted in the very low light setting (but I did not increase the camera's ISO)  A shot of the rear end of the vehicle is here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/AutoShows/Dream-Cars-2014/i-drPPrBm/A  Michael Mauer (German, born 1962) and Porsche Design Studio, designers Porsche Automobil Holding SE (German, founded 1931), manufacturer  Courtesy of Porsche Museum - Stuttgart, Germany   "Porsche developed the 918 Spyder Concept Car in 2010 as part of its experiments with how their luxury brand could address consumer interest in green technology, environmental impact, and high performance. The car combines high-tech racing features with electric mobility options selected by a push-button control on the steering wheel. The performance hybrid features four new driving modes for the driver to use: E-Drive, Hybrid, Sport Hybrid, and Race Hybrid. The driver chooses between the four options, from the most green (E-Drive, fully electric) to the maximum, which uses all systems for optimum performance (Race Hybrid). The styling studio implemented the latest technology as well as more tested methods – clay models, scale drawings, and aerodynamic studies for increased efficiency and downforce while at top speeds – to create the forward-thinking hybrid sports car. The car has recently come on the market for consumer purchase."

Finding abstracts in sycamore bark, or in the bark of many other trees, is almost too easy.    This particular shot had a wider range of colors than is typically found on this tree.  Mostly you find a range of grays, tans, browns.  The only thing I did to bring out the colors was to make various levels and contrast adjustments;  I applied no extra saturation using that adjustment tool in Photoshop, and no color shifts.  No other filters were applied to alter textural details, either.  The pores that are found in sycamore bark do a pretty good job of that on their own.  I did apply a very modest amount of sharpening with 'Unsharp Mask'.  That's all.  DP238-2014  Posted September 15; processed September 14 I hope that some of my efforts will inspire other members of the DP community to jump in with their own abstracts.  I know that there are several of you who have done, and continue to do this.  The more, the merrier.  It's such fun!

14.09.14 - Blood, Sweat and Tears  This is from a short film shoot we did yesterday. It is an interesting little project that I can't reveal any more of at this stage, suffice to say all will be revealed eventually :)
Cruising along at 70 mpg When we travel I always have my camera with me in case I see something. I usually set it at aperture priority and aim. I get some really cool images. I kind a like this one so I made this my daily today.  Thanks everyone for all your kind comments and making my red spa number one.  PS. My husband is driving.
Another shot from my hometown festival.
I'm not sure which insect this is - not a grasshopper I believe.  Perhaps a locust.  Whatever - I found him in the sun on the Danube Island.
