17.09.14 - Shadows and Ghosts  Another shot from my Tuesday evening guided photo walk, and a regular subject, although I usually use a slightly different window for the reflecton and use a landscape orientation to get a wider view. I use this location to encourage people to look harder to find interesting perspectives. It is also useful to illustrate how slightly slow shutter speeds turn moving people into ghostly shadows.
Shot with all natural light, no retouching.

I usually tend to be more of a sunRISE person but lately, the sunsets have been gorgeous. This was the view of the Nemasket River just after sunset. There was a little river otter swimming around too but because of the low light and necessary slow shutter speed, he was all blurry. So I had to lop him out of the scene.

9/17/2014 ~ Turquoise and Brick  Found in a tiny central Texas town. It looks as though they put stucco over the brick, but time has caused the stucco to fall off in spots.   Thank you for the kind comments on yesterday's shot of the alien spider crab! (Thanks Terry! That's definitely what it is)
Fun on the carousel.  I've never seen a portable carousel this old. Hindsight tells me I should have gotten images of the larger ride but I was more interested in the people.
" I huffed and I puffed,,,,,"  Yesterday was gorgeous so another from my walk in the neighborhood.    post for 19/09/14
Trust    DP135-2013  Posted May 15; processed ditto    Songbirds in the woods around the Nature Center have learned to trust humans who hold out food for them in their hands.  (Signs along the trails politely ask people to feed the birds ONLY by hand, not to put food on the ground for them, and NOT to feed the cranes.)  On the last day of my sister's visit, we walked in these woods and fed the birds.  Feeling their almost negligible weight and the tiny prick of their claws as they land and daintily snatch the chosen seed is a pleasure beyond description.

Guacamole!  It has been a few days since I have posted anything.  I've been preoccupied with my crochet - or my attempts at crochet.  ;)  I actually made a hot pad that was only very slightly askew instead of very very askew.  That is progress... right?  We had chicken fajitas for dinner tonight.  I have been wanting to try my hand at making home made guacamole.  This is my first attempt and I have to say - not too bad.  I have no idea how to buy a decent avacado...  so they weren't very ripe which in turn made it difficult to get them smashed up.  Thanks to the handy dandy blender I succeeded!  Too bad I am the only one in the family home right now that will eat it.  Oh well..  that just means more for me!  Guess what...  Emily is coming home on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!  This will be the first time she has been home since she moved to  Austin to attend the University of Texas.  I have really missed her and can't wait to give her a big hug.
Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY
1-03: Thursday I let my daughter drive up to Horsetooth and on some of the roads up there (she's just started learning to drive). It just so happened that the sky was pretty awesome looking so I had her stop and I took some pictures. As you can see our snow is almost completely gone now :(
Sunrise in Big Bend National Park in Texas; I took this shot on our recent trip to Big Bend.  There were a number of lovely sunrises while we were there, but I think this one is my favorite.  Another week has flown by and Easter is almost upon us.  Hope you are able to do something enjoyable this weekend.  I'm off to bed as soon as I post this.  Thanks, everyone, who commented on my shot of the green heron with its damselfly.  It is really gratifying to get such nice comments from such a terrific bunch of photographers.  I am constantly amazed by the talent here on smugmug.
12-26: Another from the golf course on Wednesday morning. There was a heavy frost on the trees which, in this shot, was helping to pick up a glow from the sun.
Boats on the Velikaya River bank. (6.11.2011)  Sorry I didn't have time to comment yesterday. Hope everyone has a relaxing weekend.

Another shot from my Tuesday evening guided photo walk, and a regular subject, although I usually use a slightly different window for the reflecton and use a landscape orientation to get a wider view. I use this location to encourage people to look harder to find interesting perspectives. It is also useful to illustrate how slightly slow shutter speeds turn moving people into ghostly shadows.
