The Tetons, Drive by shooting. :) 7 29 2015
7/29/15 - Groom helping the bride with part of her gown; I just liked the light and the view of the couple with the trees and green around.  Thanks for your warm response to my shot of the sunflowers.  I love those flowers, too!  A lot of terrific shots today, but I am very sad about John Loguk's giving up his photography.  Seems like there is something wrong when a talented and skilled photographer like John cannot make a go or it.
July 29 - My thanks to all for your concern over my health. It is much appreciated. I feel  better each day!
Tuesday, June 12, 2012  "TIMELESS TULIPS" (The Metamorphosis)  "Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way." ~  Edward de Bono  What a difference a day makes! Here's the  "remix" version of yesterday's "Timeless Tulips" photo created with a Picnik effect. Unfortunately, the picnik is over. As announced earlier, Picnik closed on April 19, 2012.

Have a terrific Tuesday.  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (abstract version created and original photo taken on 3/13/2012)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Tuesday, January 25, 2011  "PULLING STRAWS?" (The Metamorphosis)  "Remember when looking in the mirror, it is always looking back at you; the reflections seen are only ever as kind or as ill as your own projections." ~ Morrigan  I didn't have to pull straws for this one.......woo hoo!!! This is MY FIRST PP'd IMAGE (focal b/w, uncropped, however). I stepped outside of my comfort zone. Furthermore, I am such a "visual" person. On Sunday, after creating yesterday's POTD using marbles and the mirror, I decided to see what image I could create with straws and the mirror.  Too much time on my hands? Well, all work and no play....... you know what they say.  The original version of the photo can be viewed here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/15299231_BkGGq#1168324428_2gjWC  I am overwhelmingly appreciative of your comments regarding yesterday's "Marbelicious" photo. It landed in the #8 spot. SmugMuggers rock!!!!!!  ***#6 photo of the day and all time****  (photo taken and pp'd on 1/23/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Painted Reflections  Jul 28 After a short rain shower, everything is beautifully saturated with color. The calm still of the lake reflected all of the beauty.
Sunday, May 15, 2011   "ANTIQUE CHEVY" (The Metamorphosis)  "Keep calm and drive a Chevy!" ~ Author Unknown  Linda (aka Lgood) is one of the absolute best at capturing automobile shots and their reflections, and I immediately thought of her when I spotted this GM classic. Unfortunately, there wasn't an information card, so I am unsure as to the year of this "oldie but goodie." My hubby's guess is it's a "1930 something Chevy." The pink sign made spectators chuckle. It warned, "UNLESS YOU ARE NUDE.....PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH MY CHEVY! BUCKLES, BELTS, AND BUTTONS SCRATCH."   As you can see, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped. The original image can be viewed here:   http://godschild.smugmug.com/gallery/16609546_tdrqK#!i=1274849067&k=9MMHm66&lb=1&s=A  Your comments on yesterday's "Got Mail" POTD are really appreciated; you all are really a wonderful community of photographers who are also supportive and helpful.   God is and has been exceptionally kind to all of us; have a blessed and safe Sunday, everyone.

Bolsa Chica Wetlands...  Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve is a nature reserve in the city of Huntington Beach, California. It is designated by the California Department of Fish and Game to protect a coastal wetland, with its resident threatened and endangered species. "Bolsa Chica" means "little bag" in Spanish, as the area was part of a historic Mexican land grant named Rancho La Bolsa Chica.[1] The Reserve is also called many other names, including Bolsa Chica Lowlands, Bolsa Chica Wetlands, and Bolsa Chica Wildlife Refuge. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolsa_Chica_Ecological_Reserve  Bolsa Chica Wetlands Huntington Beach, CA  Thank you for your views, comments and critiques, much appreciated!

November 7, 2009 - Reflections at a local Madison park.     a short trip to Madison,Wisconsin on a beautiful, sunny weekend
July 29.  Caribbean Lobster, also know as Spiny Lobster.  Spiny lobsters can be easily distinguished from true lobsters by their very long, thick, spiny antennae and by the lack of claws.  There is a debate which taste better, but I'm not a seafood eater, so I don't have an opinion. Isla Mujeres, Mexico.
This image shows a the water in a water balloon just after it has been punctured by a pin.  Best viewed in the larger sizes.  This was captured at 1/1000th second shutter speed.  My grandson and I had an entire day of photography.  We started early in the morning photographing red-wing blackbirds, swallows, and ducks at a little retention pond near his home.  Then we shot more birds in his back yard.  Then, we came to my house and punctured balloons, water balloons and played with giant bubbles.  We had a ball!  Spencer is a budding bird photographer and I hope to feature a few of his shots in the next few days.  We are having new carpeting installed in part of our upstairs today.  Lots of fun moving furniture and books to make way for the carpet layers.  Hope you have a fun day, too!  Thanks for all the nice comments on my most recent shot of the peony tulip.

"BALANCING ACT"

"I love straight-forward people - makes life ten times easier." ~ Author Unknown

A "play date/play day" with our youngest grand-prince.....

I love the appearance of the green leaves growing as a vine on the wire, as well as how the red painted poles provide a burst of my favorite color. Photographed in the same general locale as my yesterday's photo.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
