Saturday, August 2, 2014  "THE COMMON CORE" (unofficial title by me)  "Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." ~ Albert Einstein  I love various mediums of art. This work of art was submitted by the  Jackson County School District (Jackson County, MS) for the Central High School Art Project in 1998.  None of the art had official titles. Only the name, city, and state of the school district were displayed on a wall plaque next to each exhibit.  For those of you who may not know, "Common Core" is In short, not a curriculum but a set of standards defining the knowledge and skills that students from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade need to master each year to be prepared for the next grade, and ultimately college or work. Creating common academic standards across the country was a state-led initiative, involving a coalition of governors and educators. The actual standards were developed by teachers, administrators, experts and parents.   Also, both of my parents and an aunt (my mother's youngest sister) are "happily and actively retired educators." My maternal-grandmother (now deceased) as well as an aunt (my father's youngest sister) were retired educators, as well.

Painted Lady Butterfly - near Olympia, Wa.
Sunset over the Dingle Peninsula islands yesterday evening
8/2/14 - Vintage gas pump at the Gas Transportation Museum, Embudo, NM  Thanks for your warm response to my shot of the wire cables and shadows.  We're going to a car show this morning; I'm hoping to get some good logos, as well as some nice car shots.
Taken from a pleasure cruiser - the Regal Lady on an evening boat trip.  Was very relaxing and the clouds were amazing.
August 2, 2014  It looks like someone or some thing has been chomping on this little bunnies ear :(

01.08.14 - Peacock Butterfly  This is a re-worked image from a recent guided photo walk. I thought I'd used it as a daily before but it seems not, so I'll share it now.
Friday, August 1, 2014  "GLORIOSA DAISY"  “Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” ~ Hans Christian Andersen, excerpt from "The Complete Fairy Tales"  Is it August, already? My, how time flies (use of personification here).  The scientific name is "Cascading Gloriosa Daisy." They are also referred to as "Black-Eyed Susans." Has there ever been a daisy as lovely as these with their shades of yellow, orange, and red ringed around a large, glittering center? I like their rich butterscotch color and deep big center "eye!" Don't you just love strolling through gardens? I do; they are not only beautiful, but offer a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of daily activity.   Have a safe and funtagious Friday!

Yet another IR capture of Point Hudson lighthouse, WA
After living in the vicinity off and on for the better part of fifty years, I finally visited Barton Dam.  This is the downstream view of the hydroelectric plant, which is still generating power more than a century after its construction in 1912.  Like Argo Dam, a few miles downstream, this dam has a pedestrian walkway across the top.  Very nice for walkers and fishermen.  But unlike the walkway at Argo, this one is fairly narrow, and requires bicyclists to walk, not ride across.  DP214-2014  Posted August 2; processed ditto On a typical summer day (temperature in the low 80's F; light breezes; partly cloudy), this stretch of the river saw numerous fishermen (no fisherwomen), recreational paddlers, hikers and joggers.  The river level is pretty low.  None of the floodgates on this dam were open.  The only water making it past the dam (other than from a leaky floodgate) was passing through the hyroelectric plant.  Barton Dam, accessed via Barton Park, Huron River, Ann Arbor, Michigan Taken August 1, 2014 Title:  Barton Dam Hydro Station
