09-20-2014 "Entrance"  A stage entrance at the theater had  black and white on the walls it looked really cool.  Because it was so close to the next building, it was difficult to capture the entire wall. I decided to make it a black and white photo since the main theme was already that way.  Your comments and critiques are always welcome and appreciated. Donna

On a literal level, the image presents a mix of submerged rocks, direct reflections of light from the surface of the water (pale silvery gray and occasional glints of blue from the sky), and refracted versions of ripples thrown onto the rocks (lacy threads of yellow), created by the lensing effect of the ripples, concentrating the sunlight. On a more imaginative level, I consistently 'see' a particular thing when I view this.  But I don't want to bias your own experience of viewing this abstract by telling you what that is.  If you see something and want to share what it is, though, feel free.  DP263-2014  Posted September 20; processed ditto from a photo taken September 19.

September 19, 2014  "Most of our best memories come from old dirt roads." ~ Me  This was the start of one of our (many) wonderful backroad trips in Utah.  We saw some gorgeous scenery and landscapes along the route.  You'll see some photos from the drive in the future.  On this road, we did actually climb over the far mountains and back down again to arrive at Hwy 89, that took us into Page, AZ.  Along the route we saw the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument and our GPS told us we were traveling along a portion of the Old Spanish Trail.    Go exploring today my friends!

20.09.14 - Quarry Dancer  Believe it or not this is the same guy that featured in my Daily yesterday dressed  First World War soldiers uniform! Reece Ackerman is one of the stars of Tell Them of Us, but his real passion is dancing and yesterday we shot some sequences for his show reel in a local quarry. Never let anyone tell you that dancers are soft, dancing bare foot on a quarry floor takes some guts!

September 20, 2014  I honestly don't recall where we were, but I do remember this awesome little highway.  It had breathtaking curves, and wonderful tall rock structures along the way.  This was taken through the windshield of the rented vehicle we were driving.  You can see the motion blurr in the trees at the edges of the photo.  Have a fantastic day my friends!

Waves of rock  At popular destinations it can be difficult getting pics that are not the same as everyone else's.  I went down into Antelope Canyon with the aim of trying get something different  So I tried to look for unusual angles.  Also, almost everyone's pics are that 'red sandstone with sunlight' shade of orange and yellow.  However, I noticed that the sandstone took on interesting shades going through purple, brown, black, cyan, blue, gray, magenta, pink, red, orange and yellow with even some touches of green, depending on the light.  So instead of trying to emphasize the orange, I tried to emphasize the whole colour palette, resulting, I hope, in some different-looking images.  I even tried making some of the images looking like underwater images by emphazing the blue end of the spectrum.  This shot is actually pretty close to what the camera saw.  I could have made it 'sandstone orange' by shifting the colour temperature up to a higher number, but I liked the gray blue spectrum where the rock was in the shade, which reminded me more of ocean waves, combined with the 'sandstone orange' colour where the rock was in the sun, representing the 'shore'.  Other photos from Lower Antelope Canyon, where I played with the colour temperature and spectrum from warmer to cooler can be seen here: http://goo.gl/rE8iT3  I know that a lot of people have a natural affinity towards warmer colours, so I would be very interested in hearing which of the two versions of the additional images you prefer.  12/09/14 www.alllenfotowild.com
9/19/2014 ~ Dentist  Dental office in an upper floor of an old building. This was found in the same little Texas town that had the turquoise shutters and stuccoed brick.   Thanks for all the great comments yesterday! It's Friday, Yay!
September 7, 2014  Wow!  Thank you guys for your comments and critiques on my 3 shot HDR "Narrows - in Zion Canyon N. P." potd yesterday.  Thanks for making it #1 at 9:15 pm CST..  What an honor, and I'm humbledly grateful to you all..  Thank you.  Smugmuggers ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!  This shot is another of the many highlights from our trip (many more vacation shots to come in the POTD).  This is a one shot of our visit to the Upper Antelope Canyon on Navajo lands near Page, AZ.    What an incredible place it was!!  The formations of the sandstone inside the slot canyon that have been carved by eons of water are just amazing.    The colors are incredible, and what little sunlight comes into the canyon through the narrow opening at the top creates wonderful light and shadows in the canyon.  We had an early morning tour that would have given me a better change at the light beams, but it got rained out that day.  We were lucky to get a late afternoon tour the next afternoon, and I have to say that we loved it - and we'll be going back next year.  It was a dusty ride to the canyon, and lots of sand rained down on our heads while we were in the slot canyon.  When I took my camera to have the sensor cleaned after the trip - the asked, "were you in the desert?|  LOL  Many parts of the canyon are so narrow that two people can not walk together side-by-side.  And for those of you planning to go in the future, beware that it is very, very dusty inside, not the greatest environment for your camera gear.  Nevertheless, we are planning to go back for another visit to the Lower Canyon as well.  You could just feel the pride and the history of the Navajo guides in showing us this wonderful canyon.  They were excellent tour guides, and shared a lot of history with the group.  You will see some more of my photos from Antelope Canyon in the Daily Community over the next several weeks as I share more and more of the vacation scenes.  Thanks for your comments and critiques.
