05.29.15  Bouncer: a body guard.  Bouncer is a commonly used word used to convey someone who protects. I thought that in this context, however, it was unusual. After all, back in the Renaissance period, if you had called a guard a bouncer people would have said, "HUH?" Maybe?  El Jay was a Greek Guard in Twelfth Night, the Shakespearean play he was in during the 6th Grade Renaissance Fair.  He is the smallest 6th grade boy (and one of the older ones). So, here is my little boy, playing a burly, tough guard. He loved it.
May 29 - Soothing Flow  I love the sound of small water falls in little creeks or streams.  Thank you for your comments on my iris bud I posted the day before yesterday.

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" and I had an abundance of fun creating and designing it. 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 (sugary foods) (e) Sweets.  Have a "sweet" day filled with "eye candy!"  (presentation created on 5/23/2015)  My Homepage: www.GodsChild.SmugMug.com
Carpenter bee...  I spotted this guy while visiting our local nursery. He was really "concentrating" on this flower so I grabbed this shot. Sure not the most handsome of insects, that's for sure!   Carpenter bees are large bees distributed worldwide. Some 500 species of carpenter bees are in the 31 subgenera. Their common name is because nearly all species build their nests in burrows in dead wood, bamboo, or structural timbers. Wikipedia  Thanks for your views , comments and critiques!  May 29, 2015
Winter Walk
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.  Update:  (six hours later).  Posting before breakfast, I forgot the lexicon challenge.  So the word that fits this picture is "Paraproskokian", a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence, phrase, or larger discourse is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret the first part (Wikipedia).

April 10, 2013    This is a national award winner and a stunning 1958 Buick Super.  You've seen a couple of shots of this car before, but I particularly liked this one showing the full, heavy metal body in the park setting.  It's a real beauty.  It's owner had me take lots of photos for him and he used one on his show board (not seen here).  A showboard is what many classic car owners have the details the unique characteristics of their car, or how/who built it, etc.  For example the one I have for my Mach 1 talks about it being a one-of-one car, and what makes it so.    To see a couple of other photos of this glorious American car, click on the below links.  The first one is my #4 most popular photo, and the second is a stylized version of the first.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_4GBBqD#!i=1230527772&k=frS6Mgb    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_4GBBqD#!i=1230532693&k=w2np5xM    "I know a lot about cars, man.

Day 149:  Iris Alpine Glow - May 29.  This lovely iris, introduced for sale in 1944, is just one of many historic irises that are planted in the Presby Memorial Iris Garden. At the rate that I'm going,  It will take weeks to sort through the many photos that I took.  I like to find the correct names of each one of the photos that I decide to keep for my files and it is a time consuming job.
April 18...  Reflections in a lake
April 12, 2011    Hello everyone, I'm really late getting my POTD posted today.  We had some pretty wild weather here in Waxahachie, TX and have been without electricity for about 36 hours.  It's just a reminder how much we sometimes take 'every day things' for granted, like hot water, lights, microwave, etc.  The good news is it's back on and we didn't sustain any damage, but unfortunately a lot of people around here did.  My heart goes out to several that lost roofs, trees, fences and one in particular who lost his entire building that his business was housed in.  Fortunately there were no injuries.    So my apologies for not commenting lately - I'll get caught up soon.  I'm headed to Birmingham again in the morning for the rest of the week, but I'll have some evenings in the hotel that I can enjoy your wonderful photos and comment.  I thank all of you sincerely for your wonderful comments today and yesterday.    It's probably going to be a "Mustang" photo week, since we went to a National Mustang show this past weekend.  This is a 1969 Mach 1, like my car - except that it has a 351 motor and mine has a 390.  But the biggest difference is that this car has won so many Concourse d'Elegance gold awards that it is now in the Conservator class.  It has all of the parts that it would have had when it originally rolled off the factory floor in 1969.  Making conservator is really, really tough.  This one was a beauty and is a gorgeous maroon color.  The car came to Texas for the show from Illinois.    Hope you enjoy - this is SOOC.    Have a great evening!    Linda
