Friday, May 29, 2015  "I feel like a little kid who just walked into a candy store. I think that's something to smile about." ~ Brandon Boyd  Here's another one of my "artistic creations." It's also my third entry for this week's (week 3 of 4) "Lexicon Challenge" proposed by Judy Horton (aka fotoeffects).  A Lexicon is an unfamiliar word for a familiar item, object, or thing. The lexicon for this photo is "SWEETMEATS" (noun) which, according to my Lexicon Dictionary, is defined as:   (a) Bonbons. (b) Candies. (c) Confections. (d) Foods with a high sugar content (sugar foods). (f) Sweets.  Have a "sweet" day filled with "eye candy!"  (presentation created on 5/23/2015)  My Homepage: www.GodsChild.SmugMug.com
May 29, 2015  According to Wikipedia, a Lexicon is:  "the vocabulary of a person, language, or branch of knowledge."    In the Obibwe language, Ninaabem means husband.  So this is my 3rd entry in Judy's Lexicon challenge.  This is my husband Bill doing something in his workshop at home.  He's always doing something, if it's not for himself or us, building or repairing something or doing R&D research and work for Americase, then he's helping others with their projects, car repairs or whatever the neighbors bring to him to get fixed.  Just a few days ago one of our neighbors brought over a Ford Thunderbird concept car to fix.  That turned into quite an ordeal for Bill.  But he loves it, and is happiest when he's fixing and figuring out problems.  Bill says that mechanics invented most of the swear words.  I can't prove that, but it could be true.  LOL  "There is no such thing as too much swearing. Swearing is just a piece of linguistic mechanics. The words in-between are the clever ones."  ~ Peter Capaldi  Thank you for your comments and critiques!  Have a industrious and productive day today my friends!  Linda http://www.lgood.smugmug.com
28.05.15 - Gone Fishing?  I've photographed this scene by the river many times, but don't think I have ever included the fishing sign before. It is all too easy to shoot everything from the standing position, but occasionally it pays to get down low or shoot through a fence as I did here.
Opalescent - exhibiting a play of colors like that of the opal.  Anna's Hummingbird - low power flash shot taken near Olympia, Wa.  I really appreciate the comments!
ZARA  The ultra modern Spanish clothing store, and the beautiful architecture of Old Town Pasadena.   The first time I shopped in one of their stores was in Madrid in early 2000 - then they had stores in London and in NYC.  Now, as you can see, they are coast-to-coast in the US. Zara was described by Louis Vuitton as "possibly the most innovative and devastating retailer in the world" .  Thank you for all the great comments on RED yesterday!
29/05/15 Very nice  and warm today. Went to Burlington to see the new pier built over the lake , but got sidetracked . I took lots of shots in the library gardens and Rob spent time with an old friend.    I love lupins and this is my favorite color in the lot.  Thanks to all for the comments on my lakeside scene from the 28th.  Will get to lots of commenting time tomorrow.  Happy Friday to all!!   xxxxx

The Light Tunnels are fun.  This tunnel - less than 200 m. long is straight and fairly dry.  And two boats can pass in the tunnel.  The 'new' tunnel cut about 11 miles off the original route of the canal.
