1-16: Thursday morning we woke up to thick fog again. It lasted till about noon. I was able to go out on my lunch break and take some shots along the river right after the fog lifted. The fog had frozen to the tree branches and bushes. I was able to get some shots before it all melted.

Early morning birds
Doing my afternoon walk, saw the clouds forming over the city pond. Took a few shots and decided to convert it into B/W
Sumac leaves that turned early, even earlier than usual for sumac.  DP241-2014  Posted (late) August 29; processed ditto Feeling snakebit after four+ days of non-existent or unreliable internet service, I decided to wait today to see whether the normal signal that miraculously reappeared this morning would last through the day.  I didn't want another day like yesterday, where it took literally about 30 minutes in the a.m. to upload my DP (repeated timings out because of dropped and slow signal), and then no signal at all during the evening hours, once I returned home.  So I couldn't leave any comments.   Grrr!!!  Today, so far, so good.  I'll take a chance that I can leave comments after dinner.  Taken August 21, Matthaei Botanical Gardens Title:  Apricot, Pumpkin, Orange Marmalade ... The Colors of Autumn  Thanks to all who commented on yesterday's (at that time) unidentified orange blossoms.  And double thanks to Judy Horton (fotoeffects) for correctly surmising they could be begonias.  I've updated my caption to that post accordingly.
August 2, 2009  Noogies.......Traverse City, Michigan - A good time was had by all.      This started as a sweet little shot of my daughter Jill, and 3 of her boys giving me a silhouette in the sunset and ended with, lets give Mommy a noogie.
Sunday, February 26, 2012    "RED BARON SQUADRON"  "When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it." ~ Henry Ford   SOOC, uncropped; flash didn't fire  Polished to perfection, and built in 1943 comes this 69 year old Stearman E75, N802RB of the Red Baron Pizza aerobatic team. It carried Boeing construction number 75-6451. The Red Baron Squadron was established in 1979 as a promotion for Red Baron Pizza. The squadron flew vintage Stearman biplanes and was the oldest civilian air team in the United States, attending airshows throughout the country and flying formation aerobatics. Their base of operations and air museum was at the Southwest Minnesota Regional Airport in Marshall, Minnesota. In 2007, after 28 years of flying, the company announced the retirement of the squadron.  Serial Number: 75-6451  MFR Year: 1943  Engine Model: P&W R-985 SERIES   Red Baron's Pizza website is here:http://www.redbaron.com/default.aspx  I appreciate your comments on yesterday's "All That Glass" photo.   Have a blessed Sunday!  UPDATE: Special thanks to Refslund for additional information regarding this aircraft.

Thursday, August 28, 2014  "A QUIET MAN vs A QUIET WOMAN"  “Few people make sound or sustainable decisions in an atmosphere of chaos. The more serious the situation, usually accompanied by a deadline, the more likely everyone will get excited and bounce around like water on a hot skillet. At those times, I try to establish a calm zone but retain a sense of urgency. Calmness protects order, ensures that we consider all the possibilities, restores order when it breaks down, and keeps people from shouting over each other. You are in a storm. The captain must steady the ship, watch all the gauges, listen to all the department heads, and steer through it. If the leader loses his head, confidence in him will be lost and the glue that holds the team together will start to give way. So assess the situation, move fast, be decisive, but remain calm and never let them see you sweat.” ~ General Colin Luther Powell, excerpt from "It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership"  And might I add that although the Bible declares that........"in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength." ~ Isaiah 30:15 (The Bible, KJV), sadly, the Israelites chose to trust in men instead of God.   Remember, "He who angers you, conquers you.” ~ Elizabeth Kenny  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday!  ***#14 photo of the day***  (photo taken 7/15/2014)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
February 27, 2013    Another old, abandoned building in the mining, Ghost Town of Silver City, Nevada.  I really wonder why all the apparent openings in the roof.  But alas - as I mentioned yesterday, there wasn't anyone around on this Sunday to ask.    I processed this with Picmonkey's daguerreotype filter and rather liked the way it looked.  Here's the original shot - let me know which one you like best.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Architecture/Buildings/7752393_7Pg76q#!i=2359563656&k=2ncjGzD    Have a fantastic day today my friends!

Violin Posted Aug. 27, 2014  One of my favorite images from the violin project. I am working on a collage and then this project is complete. Yesterday I processed all of the photos in the gallery as my processing skills have improved since I started the project. http://lindat1.smugmug.com/Other/Violin
11/23/10 - Tree in the Fog  I have been watching and studying this tree for a couple of years now.  Whenever there is fog, it seems to stand out from the backdrop...a solitary, lonely figure.  I finally made up  my mind yesterday to figure out where to park the car to get out to take a picture...not a small feat.  I do try to stay safe, but this location is more precarious than some.  Most days I am joyful as I spend time with the kids.  My life is full of laughter and color; it's vibrant and full of life like many of my pictures.  But some days at least deep inside it is like this too.  I guess a bit of that side is slipping through today.  I stopped to think about my mother for a few minutes when I took this.  She was involved in a horrible traffic accident with a tractor trailer on a foggy morning in November just before Thanksgiving in 1985.  For me, the fog will always be more than just the fog.  Back to bright and cheery tomorrow I promise...  Thanks for your comments on Johnny and the Jon boat.  It was as serene out there as you thought.  Little wind, warm sun on our skin, very few boats out on the lake...a calming hour without the chaos of life.  HAGD, Maryann
Thursday, August 7, 2014  "GAILLARDIA" (aka "Indian Blanket")  "Photography is a tough life: you can be taken, framed, exposed, shot, captured, and hung all in the same day." ~ Author Unknown  SOOC, uncropped, flash didn't fire  I've waited a long time to photograph one of these perennial flowers; they're not prevalent in my neck of the woods. According to Wikipedia, "other names for this flower are Gaillardia pulchella (firewheel, Indian blanket, Indian blanketflower, or sundance). It is a short-lived perennial or annual flowering plant native to the Central United States. It is also the state wildflower of Oklahoma." Do you see the small raindrops?  Additionally, "Legend states the blanket flower was once all yellow and was a favorite of the Aztec Indians. Years ago, young Aztec women would decorate their hair with crowns of the golden flowers. When Cortez came to their land and killed those who were living there peacefully, the much loved flower “caught the blood of the innocents as they fell”…..and to this day the red stains remain on the flower." ~ Reprinted text from here: http://www.oodlesofinformation.com/indian-blanket-flower  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday!

"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. The original image can be viewed here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/gallery/16609546_tdrqK#!i=1274849067&k=9MMHm66&lb=1&s=A
