Sunrise reflection at Smith Rock
04-21-2014 - It was confusing when I took the picture trying to determine what was and was not reflection.  Looking at the image now I'm more confused...          Link to Photo Without Frame
20.04.14 - Adam/William  One of the things we try to do on our historic film projects is recreate old photographs or paintings. For "Tell Them of Us" we have several family photos and have had great fun getting our actors in similar settings/poses. This particular one looked so uncanny that I went a step further and morphed the two images into one.  Today we are digging our own trench in a local wood and filming a scene representing Northern France.

Long neck Padaung woman, Inle Lake, Myanmar  The Padaung tribe, also called Kayan Lahwi, are a subgroup of the ethnic Karen people.    Girls first start to wear brass rings, as a form of cultural identity, when they are around five years old, gradually adding more turns as they get older. The weight of the brass pushes the collar bone down and compresses the rib cage. According to Wikipedia, the neck itself is not lengthened; the appearance of a stretched neck is created by the deformation of the collar bone. The coils are rarely removed and the neck muscles under the coil become weakened.  In recent times, due to discouragement by the government of ring wearing, some women have been removing their coils.  Portraits of older and younger women, with more, and with fewer, rings can be seen here, and also a couple of photos of a long neck woman weaving using a backstrap loom:  http://goo.gl/8r1RDL  21/04/14 www.allenfotowild.com
Freedom Bridge Opened a year ago, this pedestrian and bicycle bridge connects Austria (Schloss Hof) to Slovakia (Devínska Nová Ves - near Bratislava) over the March/Morava River.  The original bridge was built in 1771, but often destroyed - most recently by the iron curtain.  Twenty-five years after the end of the Soviet Union, it still feels strange to be able to just stroll across what used to be a heavily defended border. (This is a telephoto shot - you are seeing about 300m of bridge, so the slopes are not really quite so steep.)
Easter Sunday Parade in Dingle... a bit of history ... back in 1916 there was an uprising on Easter Sunday against British rule in Ireland .. all the leaders were executed which led to  a war of Independence and ultimately created the Irish Free State (The Irish Republic) and Northern Ireland

4/21/14 - Simulated cave environment, part of a display at the AZ-Sonoran Desert Museum.  It was almost completely dark.  I hand held this without flash.  I thought it looked very real.  I have an entire gallery of shots I took a few years ago in Carlsbad Caverns, but this image turned out better than most of those, I think.  The museum generally uses actual rocks to make molds for the rocks in their display areas.  I'm not sure how they created these super realistic lookiing cave structures, though.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the food court at the fair.

4/21/2014 ~ Sunset on Bluebonnet Hill  My husband and I took a ride on Friday to look for bluebonnets. We took his vehicle for a change, and I never gave any thought to the fact that I keep my tripod in MY trunk. This is a shot that I would normally have bracketed, but without my tripod was unable to do so. Handhelds seldom work for me, so I made this 3 frame HDR from a single image, with the original plus an under and over I made in Aperture. I processed the HDR in Photomatix Pro, with a bit of saturation in Photoshop.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I had a busy weekend and was unable to post or comment, but things should be back to normal now. Have a great Monday!
Monday April 21.  Found this little collection of vintage cameras while browsing through the antique shop.
April 21, 2014  This is a shot of the group of us that were working the Americase booth at the Safari Club International show.  Bill is actually taking this photo.  We're caught here in a rare moment of rest ..... much appreciated when you've worked a 4 day (10 hour/day) trade show where you are generally on your feet the entire time.  From the rear (sitting) is Caleb, me, Alice and standing is Graham.  Alice and Graham are married happily for many years.  It was wonderful to have both of them along for the working days and dinners in the evenings.  Here's an idea for a future challenge....food shots.  We all occasionally post shots of food, so I thought it might be worthy of conversation.  "It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees." Baltsar Gracian  Stand tall my friends!
