Sunday, May 15, 2011   "ANTIQUE CHEVY"  (pp version)  "Keep calm and drive a Chevy!" ~ Unknown Author  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.

Friday, April 6, 2012       "WHAT IS IT?"  “Each of us, famous or infamous, is a role model for somebody, and if we aren't, we should behave as though we are -- cheerful, kind, loving, courteous; because you can be sure someone is watching and taking deliberate and diligent notes.” ~ Dr. Maya Angelou  Can you guess what this is? Special effects or not? Even I was amazed at how this turned out, as I was just playing around with various shots.  It does look like an abstract and a work of art, in my opinion.  I genuinely appreciate your comments on the table setting post yesterday; it landed in the #2 spot. Please know that I look forward to perusing and commenting on your outstanding photos, also. Each day, I am so honored to be a part of a community of people who share a like passion for photography.  Today is Good Friday and a day off for most people, including moi......woo hoo!!  Have a safe and blessed "Resurrection Weekend," my friends.  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 4/1/2012)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com

Nov.11.  Last Saturday we had a whole family of Flickers visit in the yard.  This was the closest they came to the house.
Saturday, July 2, 2011                    "1955 FORD FAIRLANE TOWN SEDAN"  “Vision without execution is just hallucination.” ~ Henry Ford  Here's my very 1st HDR pp image........best viewed in XLarge!!   A special thanks to Lgood's husband Bill (owner of a Ford Fairlane) who stated that this is "a 1955 (maybe a '66) but nearly certain it is a '55."  This multi-colored Ford Fairlane Town Sedan was my favorite in the show. I love the bright colors that changed depending upon the angle from which it was viewed. If you look real close, you will see reflections galore in this one, most notably a red Chevy pickup that was parked beside it.    According to Wikipedia, "The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model sold between 1955 and 1970 by the Ford Motor Company in North America. The name was taken from Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan. Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-size car but became a mid-size car from the 1962 model year. The mid-sized model spawned the Australian-built Fairlane in 1967, although it was considered a large car there." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Fairlane_Americas)   Check out the original here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/17330226_SSNF6P#1361726886_85RFQx2.  Your comments regarding my first "major" pp work on yesterday's T-Bird were both inspiring and appreciated. By the way, my hubby and our two sons are the "vintage vehicle/car buffs."   ***#4 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 6/11/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com

Nov.14.  Parakeet Trio.
Nov.9.  Last night we volunteered to work at the Maryland Irish Festival.  We were at the Irish whiskey table preparing mixed drinks.  I noticed the pile of lids that got thrown together and decided it could make an abstract for a daily.  Added some extra processing and came up with this.
November 25, 2014  Antigua  Fort James Beach located at Fort Bay on the northwest coast of Antigua is popular with locals and visitors alike, a beach where you can often find a volleyball game, or a game of beach cricket to participate in. Fort James Beach is also a popular spot for cruise ship visitors, as it's only a 5-10 minutes drive from the cruise ship dock in St.John's.   http://www.antiguanice.com/v2/client.php?id=455

11-25-2014 "Strike Away"  You don't see books of matches like this too much anymore. This was a colorful display.  Thanks for commenting on my photos. Donna
11/25/14 - A truck jackknifed on I-25; the cab is now headed in the wrong direction on the freeway.  We don't know how the driver managed to do this.  Thanks for your supportive comments on the watercolor-like treatment of the dahlia.

February 21, 2011 - "Restoration Questionable"  This vehicle is on display in front of some Key West stores.  I did some research and believe that nameplate on the hood is part of the original vehicle.  Your response to my Key West sunset image was greatly appreciated.
