Wednesday, July 23, 2014  "BRING ON THE BRIGHTS"  "Every beautiful flower must grow through dirt." ~ Anonymous  SOOC, uncropped, flash didn't fire  Recently, there have been lots of "Flower Power" photos posted in the DPC. It's definitely that time of year when an array of colorful blooms are everywhere. Here's another photo (daylilies and buds) taken in the same yard as yesterday's flower photo. Isn't this such an array of colors? And I do love colors!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!  (photo taken 6/17/2014)  My Homepage: www.godschild.smugmug.com

"Looking for Pollywogs"!!   It was one of those hot,sultry, afternoons in a still heat where everything stood still.  Went for a drive in the country .Camera in hand and  a short walk brought me to this muddy, little stream and I thought of catching tadpoles when I was a kid. Where have they all gone?  23/07/2014

A Secret Garden Mushrooms in the woods - I don't know what kind.
July 23, 2014 I was watching the DF on the right waiting for it to stop being camera shy when (I assume) the same little guy from yesterday zoomed in for a photo bomb!

We have internet...and IT WORKS!!    Just in time to leave town.... Oh well my hubby will enjoy it while I am gone. ;-)   Thank you for your great comments yesterday, always appreciated  Have fun today! Jeanne
I recently attended a show celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang. Shown here are two 1966 Shelby GT 350's. The car in the rear was featured in yesterday's post but the Shelby GT 350 H in the foreground is somewhat unusual. It is one of 50 that were painted Ivy Green Metallic and only one of 6 that were equipped by Ford with Air Conditioning prior to being delivered to the Hertz Corporation.  All of the other vehicles, which in some quarters became known as "rent a racers", were painted black with gold strips . You could rent one of these beauties for $17 a day and 17 cents per mile. The complete Hertz order numbered 1000.
Never underestimate the power of tiny creatures.  DP204-2014  Posted July 23; processed ditto Most of the leaves on this sycamore tree that I could see in any detail had been chewed up to some degree by some kind of invertebrate...insect, caterpillar, who knows what. A note on my processing.  The sky was pretty pale in the original.  I tried bringing up the blue using the 'levels' slider in photoshop, but decided I preferred the more dramatic look of the light background, so I ended up going in the reverse direction and brightening the sky even more.

Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero/Reisen/Zeke...  HISTORY  Completed in May 1943, Zero No 61-120 was the 2,357th aircraft of its type to come off the Nakajima production line and was first assigned to the Japanese Naval Air Corps on the home island of Honshu. In a few months, it moved to Iwo Jima, then in March 1944, was reassigned to Asilito Airfield on Saipan.  On June 18, 1944, U.S. Marines captured Asilito Airfield with a number of intact Zero fighters. A dozen of these intact Zeros were shipped to NAS North Island, San Diego, California, USA for evaluation. Four Zeros were restored to flight, two went to the Army Air Force and two were retained by the Navy.  The Museum’s Zero No 61-120 was ferried to NAS Patuxent River, Maryland on August 23, 1944 and subsequently flown by about 25 different USN, USMC, Royal Navy and civilian fighter and test pilots, including Charles A. Lindbergh. The aircraft was ferried back to San Diego on January 11, 1945, where frontline combat pilots were also given a chance to check out the Zero. Altogether, Zero No 61-120 logged over 190hr of flight time in the USA before being declared surplus after the war.  Zero No 61-120 wound up being sold for scrap, but Mr. Ed Maloney obtained it in 1951 for his Air Museum in Claremont, CA, which opened in 1957.  The Museum began restoring the Zero to flying condition in 1973 and after 4½ years it flew again on June 28, 1978.  DISTINCTION  The Museum’s Zero is the only fully authentic flyable example in the world.  Restored to flying condition in June 1978, this Zero fighter is still powered by its original Nakajima Sakae 31 engine.  It carries the same color scheme and markings it bore in combat for the Imperial Japanese Navy during the war.  After a successful flight-test program the Zero was shipped to Japan for a six-month tour of flight demonstrations.  Two tours have been made in Japan and is the only example of the type of Zero to have flown in Japan since the end of WWII.  Once flown by Charles A. Lindbergh at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland.  Movie and TV appearances include Pearl Harbor, Tora Tora Tora  http://planesoffame.org/  Planes of Fame Air Show, May 3-4, 2014 Chino Airport Chino, CA
