January 5...  Blif on his way to church at Christmas-time
1/23/2015. Winter Thaw. Yesterday in the park was such a beautiful sunny day in the upper 50's; very unusual for January. The ice was thin and crackly and the sunlight created that nugget effect, and the original was a silvery winter cold, so I warmed it up with gold compliments of PS. Thank you for your views/comments!! Karen

11-15-2012.  South Carolina Sunrise. Shot in September while on vacation with friends. I'd love to be there again where the weather was perfect every day. Here in Ohio it's pretty cold.  Thank you so much for all your kind words yesterday!
08OCT2012  Milling Around  Dell's Mill aka Clark's Mill with some Fall foliage all lit up in the morning sun......Great place, scenic area with lots of barns to shoot as well.  Image won First Place in the "Travel Category" n4c.us in October 2012, submitted through the Omaha Camera Club.  Comments are welcome, lots of Wisconsin images to upload....have a great day!  Dan, sorry we didn't know you lived there....great area.
11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann
March 12, 2013    Here's a shot of the sign above the entry of the Bucket of Blood Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada.  According to the Saloon's website:  In spite of its sinister name, 'the Bucket of Blood Saloon' gives off the charm of the old time hey-days with its many hanging lamps and mirrors. Memories of a time long ago await the visitor wandering in to the bar for a cold drink in this cool oasis.    "the BUCKET of BLOOD Saloon"-"the Original". This structure constructed in 1876 after the great fire of 1875 which took up to a thousand structures of the town. Most of the towns core buildings were lost or sustained damage,unfortunately the first structure that previously occupied this location, like alot of the other towns buildings of that time was completely destroyed. Though the building you are currently viewing has gone through several renovations, iterations and operations since 1876, it like many of the other Historical buildings throughout Virginia City survive as living history.    The masonry walls of the Old BUCKET predate the great fire of 1875. Shadows of doorways recall a time when enclosed stairs led down to the Boston Saloon. The BUCKET of BLOOD has long served as a local landmark in the center of Virginia City. Until recently no one realized that the Boston Saloon lay under an asphalt cap to the rear of the building.    The discovery of the Boston Saloon location in 1997, together with a subsequent test excavation, demonstrates that the site is rich with artifacts and has national importance. This business stayed at a single location through most of its existence, making it an anomaly at the outset. Defying the odds, remnants of the saloon survive in the archaeological record, escaping 125 years of development and bottle collecting. An asphalt parking lot currently caps the property, which the Comstock Archaeology Center excavated in September 2000. The Center is still completing analysis and cataloguing over the years. Pending funding, one or more exhibits will open at various locations in the future.    For a shot of another sign advertising the saloon, click here:  http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Signs/7752337_32zKrR#!i=2389248618&k=RPGSmM9    I just LOVE history!    This shot has a psuedo HDR filter applied, and I liked the way it enhanced all the wood in the shot.    Have a fantastic day my friends!    Linda

July 25, 2012  "Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides."  ~ Junichiro Tanizaki   Mystery is always in the shadows.............  Bill and I recently had dinner at the Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie, Texas were we live.  And, we took Jennifer with us.  To see Jennifer at the haunted restaurant (and the whole gallery of her trip to Texas), click here:    http://www.smugmug.com/community/Jennifers%20Road%20Trip  The restaurant is in an old house that is decorated with period furnishings.  This is a shot of the lace insert on the curtain over the window and the reflection of leaves from a tree outside the frame.  I loved the patterns and shadow plays here.  The Catfish Plantation is rumored to be haunted, but we've never seen a ghost.  It was featured a few years ago in one of the ghost hunter's TV shows.  To read more about it, click here:  http://www.catfishplantation.com/ghosts.html  Have a light-filled sort of day today my friends!  Linda
March 1,2013    Another shot from the car through the windsheild.    In Nevada - almost to Virginia City.  I loved the way the sunlight turned the hills almost golden.    Linda
