January 29 - View from Up High  I snapped this at lunch time. Its a view from above 4 colourful chairs in the lobby of my office building. I particularly liked the light shining on the floors.

I am not a fan of the small accessory dog, but Minus is friendly and playful enough to be tolerable.  He is not too loud and always in a good mood.  I caught this shot while chasing him around the house with my camera (he was afraid of it for some reason and this amused me)
August 9, 2012    "Divine Nature gave the fields, human art built the cities."  ~ Marcus Terentius Varro     Another drive by shot from our trip to Kentucky.  I loved the old barn surrounded by the lovely green fields.  I don't recall if this was a field of corn or maze, or something different, but I do remember how pretty it was.    I guess I was a day ahead of myself this morning when I made my started comment.  I was "wishing" it was Friday because I'd be home.  But alas, I soon realized that it is just Thursday, and I'm still in Birmingham.    Have a fantastic day today my friends!    Linda
Birds joy for the remaining part of winter
Most of the golden light, seen here as it reflects from the Huron River in late afternoon, was first reflected from the metal (aluminum?) facing of the Huron Parkway bridge.  One of the concrete bridge supports appears in the upper right of the shot.  I liked the effect of the partial ice cover on the river, and the chopiness of the water, which renders the reflections in a near abstract, all bounded by the more literal elements of the landscape.  The vertical lines that survive in the reflection are either from ribs or seams in the bridge facing, or from light poles along the bridge.  DP008-2015  Posted Thursday, January 8; processed January 7. For those not familiar with the term, albedo, simply put, is the ratio of reflected to incident light.  Though used primarily in contexts of climatology and astronomy to describe various terrestrial or astronomical surfaces, it has a more general meaning.  Water, snow, and ice have highly angle-dependent albedos, which can be quite high under the right conditions.  Aluminum, even when the surface isn't highly polished, has a fairly high albedo, as many of you are aware from personal experience.  In the late afternoon, the glare from this particular bridge facing can be blinding, even after it reflects from the river at a fairly low angle.

Wednesday, January 28, 2015  "CENTENNIAL BALL" (The Metamorphosis)  "It's impossible to explain creativity. It's like asking a bird, 'How do you fly?'

July 25, 2012  "Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides."  ~ Junichiro Tanizaki   Mystery is always in the shadows.............  Bill and I recently had dinner at the Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie, Texas were we live.  And, we took Jennifer with us.  To see Jennifer at the haunted restaurant (and the whole gallery of her trip to Texas), click here:    http://www.smugmug.com/community/Jennifers%20Road%20Trip  The restaurant is in an old house that is decorated with period furnishings.  This is a shot of the lace insert on the curtain over the window and the reflection of leaves from a tree outside the frame.  I loved the patterns and shadow plays here.  The Catfish Plantation is rumored to be haunted, but we've never seen a ghost.  It was featured a few years ago in one of the ghost hunter's TV shows.

September 5, 2012    There are so many unusual cars at the Bonneville Salt Flat speed trials, that you never know what you might see.  This one was called a 1952 Bonneville Bombshell Buick.  I didn't get to see it run, but it certainly was interesting.    Here's a couple of other shots of the Bonneville Bombshell Buick:    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_4GBBqD#!i=2062709416&k=bz9rJpN    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_4GBBqD#!i=2062734832&k=sDSFt3R    Enjoy!

January 27, 2015  This exceptionally large Pump Jack was not in operation at the time of this photo, it was in a equipment yard in west Texas.  Pump Jacks are also sometime called (at least in Texas) "Nodding Donkeys because of their shape and their movements when they are working.  I rater liked the way this one turned out in silhouette.
