When I titled this post, that song immediately reverberated in my mind. Just like people, these colorful mixture of "Profusion Zinnias" are showing their "true colors." Power will certainly expose a person's true colors.   It was a beautiful (but hot) day and the sun was shining heavily upon these blooms. The colors were really this vivid - the camera takes what it sees! I spotted them on my way into the casino to eat at Heritage restaurant (buffet) - and not to gamble, thank you! Someone had suggested eating there. The food was delicious; and the service was attentive, but not intrusive.   Have a "colorific" day!

Curving striations of white and red sandstone, White Pockets, Vermillion Cliffs National Monuments, Arizona    Everywhere you look in White Pockets there is amazing art work by Mother Nature. Since the site is remote, it is rarely visited, which keeps it in pristine condition.    Other new photos from White Pocket can be seen here: http://goo.gl/S14eP5    20/08/14 www.allenfotowild.com
Jousting at Battle of Bosworth Re-enactment 2014  In response to TsTravels - the white lance has just broken, the object in the sky is a rubber (?) end tip similar to the one you can see on the end of the green lance.

8/20/2014 ~ ROAR!  I spotted this male Desert Tarantula (Aphonopelma chalcodes) crossing a road in New Mexico near Carlsbad and made a U-turn to get his photo. He's standing on his hind legs trying to look big and bad and intimidating. He doesn't scare me, I make pets out of them! Tarantulas are the gentle giants of the arachnid world. They do have mild venom, which is used to paralyze other insects before eating them. It's not dangerous to humans, and feels no worse than a bee sting. They seldom bite people and become accustomed to handling. This one is about the size of a donut, but the Goliath Bird Eater, a native to South America is dinner plate sized!  Thank you for the nice comments on my shot of the San Antonio Botanical Gardens yesterday!
8/20/14 -  I liked the way these two were so fascinated by something.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the old black Cadillac!
I don't know whether this aquatic vegetation is reeds, sedges, grasses, or something else, to be honest.  I liked the way the line between plants and their reflections seemed to disappear in the calm water.

Aug.20. Wheel Bug.  Yes, it has a coating of short gray hairs which I didn't notice until I got this close up.  It also delivers a painful bite if handled carelessly.

Greenery in late sunshine! This stand of cat tails , teasel and wild blooms are growing beside the roadway and a deep ditch of water . I loved seeing them in a city full of coffee shops, fast food places, and gas stations , all of which are across the street.  20/08/2014

19.08.14 - Mixed Emotions  Some days we have little to choose from when picking an image for the Dailies, other days we are spoilt for choice. The last few days have definitely been a struggle to choose from hundreds of very varied images from the Tell Them of Us shoots, I could easily have done a collage every day! Yesterday I finally caught up, today we shoot a series of scenes, including Christmas Eve 1918.
August 20, 2014 As mentioned,  Golden, TX is a small (pop 197) town in East Texas.   The Domino Grill is in one of the three buildings in Golden.   The restaurant has two dominoes tables that look like they get a lot of use.  Most towns in the south have places where the men get together and play dominoes, some weekly some monthly.    I remember my dad and grandfather playing dominoes.  The clinking and sliding of the  dominoes brings back wonderful memories.  Thank you for your comments yesterday.  I had appointments most of the day and didn't get to comment much.  I will try to catch up today.  Enjoy the day! Jeanne
