Thursday, April 2, 2015  "BERRY'S BARREL OF BLOOMS"  "Spring won't let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again." ~ Gustav Mahler  Spring brings blossoms! Here's a prop  - a barrel of ornamental cabbage and pansies at what has become a favorite (thanks to our oldest son/daughter-in-law). Pansies are said to be associated with "loving thoughts."  Have a great day and hang in there; tomorrow is "Good Friday!"  (photo taken 2/14/2015)  My Homepage: www.Godschild.SmugMug.com

April 14, 2013    Here's another gorgeous classic car shot from the archives.      This 1940 Ford is known as "The Copperhead"  This shot was taken at last summer's "All Ford" show in Fort Worth, Texas known as the Yellow Rose Car Show.  The red Ford farm truck, the Silver Fox Mustang, the Copperhead, and tomorrow's photo are cars that were at the Yellow Rose show.  Bill and I had our cars there too - but I've posted the 'best of the best'.    Notice the mirror under this beauty - she's just as clean underneath as everywhere else.    I have a comment & question for all my friends on the Daily Community:  " The thumbsdown snake is gone - but there's still someone that wants to depress good photos- I've been a victum recently of the negative "Guest" comments."    Have you experienced this?  Just curious, I get quite a few of them - but I just ignore them and delete.  The deleted comments knocks my photos down in the ranking.  So be it.    Here's the most recent situation:  Day before yesterday (the Red Ford Farm Truck photo)  I got a comment from a friend of mine named JT who checks my photos sporatically..  He comments on one or two that he likes sometimes.  He's not a member of Smugmug, but he leaves his email address so I know it's him.    Close to the same time that JT posted Friday night I was talking to my sister on the phone & I told her about the red Ford farm truck (because she has one - not as nice of course).  I asked her to go check out shot on the Daily.  She loved it so well, that she posted a comment from her iPhone.    About 20 minutes after JT's & Tammy's (my sister) comments appeared on my photo - I got a "Guest" comment that said, "JT & Tammy?" - obviously a snide remark.      My immediate reaction was to post a comment that said, "JT is a good friend of mine & Tammy is my sister - what's your problem?"   I deleted my nasty remark because it was non- productive.    I've gotten lots of negative "Guest" comments lately that I've deleted, the deletes knocks my photos down in ranking - too bad, as said, "I don't care."  Mr/Ms/Mrs "Guest"  you won't keep me from posting.    My motto is:  "Do unto others as you would have done to you."      I don't post dailies to be the #1 photo - I do it to have fun, and if friends outside the smugmug community comment - what's the harm.  I want to learn from your comments and critiques.  This is the most talented group of  photographers I've ever know, and to study your photos & learn from them is my passion.  Smugmugger's ROCK.      Have any of you ever had this experience?  I'm just curious.    I participate in this community and experience it as it is supposed to be - to show our shots and learn from each other.  Petty jealousy is ridiculous.    Thank you for your comments on the Silver Fox Mustang yesterday, and all my photos.  As mentioned before, I learn so much from all of you.    Sorry for the rant - but I just had to call out the "Guest" comments that I've been suffering from lately - and deleting.    Have a classically awesome day today my friends!    Linda
Like a great wall, the vertical cliffs that mark the Tapeats Sandstone cap, ~500 million years old, atop the Precambrian Vishnu Schist (~1.5 billion years old) run like a ribbon through this scene, starting at the left center.  A combination of severe tilting of the older layers and erosion of the intervening strata have either buried or stripped away 1 billion years of geologic record. Such unconformities (gaps in the rock record) occur in many other places around the world.  The one on display in the Grand Canyon is one of the more spectacular examples, earning it the name 'Great Unconformity', awarded to it by John Wesley Powell in the 19th century.  Strictly speaking (according to Wikipedia), the juxtaposition of the Tapeats sandstone directly atop the Vishnu schist is a nonconformity, rather than an unconformity.  DP091-2015  Posted Wednesday, April 1 Looking downstream (south and west) from a point a few miles downstream from the confluence of the Little Colorado River with the Colorado River.  The massive wall of dark stone on the left (south) bank is Vishnu schist, the only metamorphic layer exposed in the canyon, and also the oldest.  If you're a geology nut like myself, read more about the phenomenon online, certainly, and in books (what a concept!).
