5/28/15 - Wood sculpture at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center by a member of the Colorado College faculty, Andy Tirado.  This work of art has been at the center for some time, situated in different places and I find it more interesting and appealing every time I see it.  I have a very visceral response to it...it seems to call forth a number of emotions....loneliness, hope, pleading, etc.  And the craftsmanship required to construct the piece is amazing.  Check it out in the largest size to see the individual pieces and their placement.  Thanks for your warm response to my previous shot at the arts center.  Made my day to see it in the #1 spot.  I'd had a shot in my spine in the morning and then slept most of the afternoon, so I didn't get around to looking at the dailies until evening.
Thursday, May 28, 2015   "FIORI" by Dale Chihuly  "When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece." ~  John Ruskin  Throwback Thursday......  This "masterpiece" is from the 2009 archives and was photographed at the very first Dale Chihuly exhibit that I attended. In my opinion, everything he creates is considered a "masterpiece." At some point, there should be a whole new elite lexicon - an unfamiliar word for a familiar item, object, or thing - all of which mean "masterpiece" or better. This arrestingly vibrant creation of hand-blown glass art, which resembles a  Yucca plant, offers a vibrant design and extends Chihuly's career-long penchant for placing forms in natural and unique environments.

I am ready; are you?  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday!

Cosy in Coventry This shot effectively ends my series of canal pictures from our recent trip.  It shows the Coventry Canal Basin, which was renovated a few years ago.  That is our boat.  We pulled into Coventry on a bright afternoon.  It started to rain in the evening.  The next day's weather was horrible - heavy rains and gale force winds - so we decided not to move at all and to spend a second night still moored up in Coventry - snug and warm in our floating home.  And thanks for ranking yesterday's damselfly shot under the top five.  Much appreciated.
May 28, 2015  Not really superwoman, but a super woman!  This is our friend Alice and she is helping break down our show booth at the Safari Club International Show.  Bill is headed back down the aisle to help too.  I did get into the breakdown, but had to take a few photos during all the work.  This photo was taken just moments after the show closed, and that's when all the crazy tear-down activity starts.  Thank you for your comments & critiques.  Have a great day!

27.05.15 - And Then There Were Seven!  This is the same swan family that I featured yesterday. I thought there were 2, possibly 3, babies, but last night I found that there are actually 7!
Day 147: Yellow and White Iris - May 27.  An iris portrait from the Presby Memorial Iris Garden.  Today was just one of those days - started out overcast and I decided to go back to the garden for a few more photos.  Car trouble on the way there.  Took my photos and problems continued on the way back home.  Finally had to have car towed to service.  Back home, finally, after 4 in the afternoon.  Downloaded my new photos and found that I can't get to them via PS.  The folder with the new images is on my computer but Photoshop doesn't see it.  Now don't know what to do.  Meantime, dreading the call tomorrow when I will learn what the car problem is and the cost of repair.  Did get some good photos if I can figure out how to access them.
Wednesday, May 27, 2015  "LIFE IS COUNTRY"  "Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense." ~ Robert Frost  I am always on the lookout for items and novelties that feature interesting and/or humorous images or text.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
