August 1, 2014  I have no idea what this plant could be.  I found it in the most distant part of our backyard where I rarely go (our backyard is 3 acres).    Is it a weed?  Is it a flower?  Is it an alien invader?  Dennis (Papamugger) can you help me out here with the ID?  Have a great day!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com

8/1/2014 ~ Sweetgrass  Sweetgrass Baskets for Sale at the Charleston City Market, Charleston SC.   These baskets are handmade by Craftsman, a skill passed down through generations. There is a lot of history behind this traditional craft, and I found a link to some information via the Charleston Public Library HERE Very interesting and worth reading if you have the time.   The Baskets are the State Craft of South Carolina: Sweetgrass Basket weaving – Sweetgrass (Muhlenbergia filipes), being native to the coastal dunes of the Carolinas, provided the perfect material for African slaves to utilize their traditional skills and produce a tightly-woven coiled basket. This handcraft has been passed down through generations and a high concentration of basket weavers is still found near Mount Pleasant. To this day, the form of the sweetgrass baskets woven in South Carolina closely resemble their African counterparts.  I was fortunate to have purchased two baskets during prior visits years ago. As with many things, as popularity gains, the price goes up! The larger sizes are over a few hundred dollars now.  Thank you for the wonderful comments on yesterday's Savannah Waterfront shot!
The Waluliso Bridge This pontoon bridge connects the Danube Island (behind the camera) to the 22nd district dike, crossing the "New Danube" flood channel.  The pontoons are removed in the winter and the ends raised.  It is named after a "Vienna Original" of the 1970s and 1980s who wandered around town in a toga promoting peace and his mantra "Water, Air, Light, and Sun" (WAsser, LUft, LIght, SOnne).  He also collected signatures for the successful preservation of the Danube Island as a recreation and nature preserve.

Atlantic way -    The bridge on the atlantic ocean  in Norway.
Gorgeous sunrise yesterday!!! The water was so still and the sky had such unique color. I shot all around the harbor for over 2 hours! Unlike today, where I overslept and missed the whole thing!  Plymouth Harbor, Ma
June 11, 2011    This is the same abandoned station where the marching line of gas pumps were found.  You can see that shot posted on June 5th here if you missed it.  I know many of you have seen it because of the wonderful comments which are very appreciated.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Daily-Photos-2010/12484643_ezMcC#1367630283_kkxm8S9    This is another set of gas pumps that are older in style, and were in front of the abandoned station.  As I mentioned before, there were 100s of pumps around this place.  It was so cool.    And here's an old sign that was in front of this old place- http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Signs/7752337_483tx//1061733754_#1376000970_H7MsspG    This was such a cool place and it brought back lots of memories for me from days gone by.  I hope you all enjoy it.    Linda

050211  Tree in Shohola Falls    Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.
