Tuesday, December 27, 2011     "BROKEN, BUT BEAUTIFUL"  "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one." ~ C.S. Lewis  No flash and SOOC, other than the border.......final Christmas theme post of the year:)  It was Christmas in November when I received this!  My best friend (of 23 years) and I exchanged Christmas gifts when she (and her family) were here during the Thanksgiving holidays. I think she's started a tradition of giving me a Christmas tree ornament each year. Unfortunately, when I pulled this one out of the bag, it was broken (most likely during shipping), although you probably cannot tell in this photo. It's an angel inside the ornament that's suppose to sit atop the base and light up once the light switch is turned on. Actually, it's amazing how much I like the fact that the angel appears to be sitting at the base of the ornament holding a picture. Nevertheless, it's beautiful and I love and appreciate it. The frame was applied from PicNik.   View the 2010 ornament here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Project365/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2011/15049328_sF4n2j#1192553561_ebJxx-A-LB  The glass bowl in the background is the one in the Thursday, December 22, 2011 post, which can be viewed or reviewed here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Project365/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2011/15049328_sF4n2j#1595885649_SVSM4TJ-A-LB  I wholeheartedly appreciate your comments on my photos and I enjoy perusing your outstanding photos.   Five days until the 2012 new year.......   Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!!!  ***#6 photo of the day***  (received ornament 11/25/2011; photo taken 12/1/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Friday, March 23, 2012  "FLOWERING STILETTO" by Mary Consie of Mesa, AZ  "If loving shoes is wrong, I don't want to be right." ~ Godschild (Me)  This was also among my favorite sculptures that reminded me of all the ladies who love shoes as much as I do (including but not limited to): my mother, my two sisters, my aunts, my best friend, a co-worker Shelia, SmugMug ladies Linda, Paula, Janet, Maryann, Judy, Nelli, and all the other shoe-a-holics in the world.  "Flowering Stiletto," by Mary Consie of Mesa, AZ, was donated in memory of Jane Binkley (1940-2007) by her family. It was dedicated to the city of Mesa, AZ in July, 2008. Flowering Stiletto depicts a 6 foot long stiletto with a flower growing out of it. The sculpture is made of steel.  Consie has said that due to having flat feet, she can't wear small shoes and creates large versions instead. Originally the sculpture was purchased by a resident of Tempe, AZ. The purchaser then donated it to the city of Mesa and dedicated it to his late wife, Jane Binkley, who had a large (in number, not in size) shoe collection.  Have a funtagious, footloose, francy-free, and high-steppin' weekend. TGIF!!!!  Located on the NE corner of Main St. and Robson Rd.

Monday, April 16, 2012       "FOUNTAIN"  “A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.” ~ Unknown Author  I appreciate your comments on yesterday's one pound (6,120 calories) "Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar," but after the milk chocolate bar and the five-pound gummy bear, no sweet treats for today. Instead, here's some much needed water.  Also, my hubby spotted this beautiful fountain and suggested that I photograph it. SOOC, this was taken at an office complex located on Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Unfortunately, I did not get its name.   By the way, Phillip, this is a result of long exposure; I held my breath and the shutter button down for a few seconds while counting and then released it:). I've owned a tripod for approximately two years, but it remains packaged to this day and I have never opened or used it.  Have a marvelous Monday and a great start to the week.  ***#3 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 12/30/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com

Sunday, December 30, 2012  "LIGHTS AND REFLECTIONS"  "How much you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain. And so it is with life, which, for many of us becomes one big gigantic test followed by one big gigantic lesson. In the end, it all comes down to one word.....grace. It's how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness and the light." ~ Philosophy  SOOC, other than the frames, which were created with Picnik.......unfortunately, the picnik is over. As announced earlier, Picnik closed on April 19, 2012.

Sunday, May 15, 2011   "ANTIQUE CHEVY"  (pp version)  "Keep calm and drive a Chevy!" ~ Unknown Author  Linda (aka Lgood) is one of the absolute best at capturing automobile shots and their reflections, and I immediately thought of her when I spotted this GM classic. Unfortunately, there wasn't an information card, so I am unsure as to the year of this "oldie but goodie." My hubby's guess is it's a "1930 something Chevy." The pink sign made spectators chuckle. It warned, "UNLESS YOU ARE NUDE.....PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH MY CHEVY! BUCKLES, BELTS, AND BUTTONS SCRATCH."   As you can see, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped.

January 7, 2012  This shot was taken just after sundown somewhere along the Mississippi coast of the Gulf of Mexico.  We had stopped to walk on the beautiful white-sand beaches and take some photos.  Just as we left, we stopped at a nearby marina to put gas in the car and I couldn't resist taking this photo.  Frame added in Picnik.  I hope you enjoy this tranquil setting captured in this photo - it's going to be one of my favorites from our recent vacation.  Check it out in X3 for all the color, reflections and details.  Thanks for your comments!!!  Have a fabulous weekend!!!  Linda
Tuesday, March 27, 2012      "HUMPTY DUMPTY" by  Kimber Fiebiger   "Love all; trust a few; do wrong to none." ~ Unknown Author  And the nursery rhyme goes like this............  'Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall:  Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.  All the King's horses and all the King's men  Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.'  Well, Kimber Fiebiger of Minneapolis, Minnesota made this delightful sculpture because she, "Just loves to put a smile on people's faces." Looks like Humpty Dumpty has been put back together again and is back on his throne, which I hope brings a smile to your face.   Kim's official website is here: http://www.joanofart.com/?page_id=30  In the words of a great gospel song by Donnie McClurkin, "We fall down, but we get up!"   Actually, Oprah Winfrey may have said it best: "If you should happen to fall, turn your wounds into wisdom."  Finally, this is the last of the public art series in Mesa, AZ. Thank you for your appreciation and patience.  A few more public art pieces can be viewed here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/20517416_FzGW22#!i=1656884744&k=fw75TPW  Have a "well put together" and terrific Tuesday, my friends.  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 12/28/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Thursday, February 2, 2012  "SUNNY SIDE UP"  "Be a rose which gives fragrance, even to those who crush it. ~ Author Unknown  SOOC comes this yellow rose of...........Arizona, and not Texas:)!   According to history, yellow is  a bright, sunny color that evokes a feeling of warmth and happiness. Akin to those shared with a true friend are the warm feelings associated with the yellow rose. It is also an ideal symbol for joy and friendship, in contrast to the romantic meanings attributed to other roses. Additionally, yellow roses can send the perfect message of appreciation and platonic love without the romantic subtext of other colors. Joy and delight are representative of the color yellow and an ideal way to brighten someone's day who may be feeling down.  Finally, a yellow rose can bring out the smile in quite a way that no other flower can.   I sure do thank you all for your comments; they are very much appreciated.  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday.

"1955 FORD FAIRLANE TOWN SEDAN"

“Vision without execution is just hallucination.” ~ Henry Ford

Here's my very 1st HDR pp image........best viewed in XLarge!!

A special thanks to Lgood's husband Bill (owner of a Ford Fairlane) who stated that this is "a 1955 (maybe a '66) but nearly certain it is a '55."

This multi-colored Ford Fairlane Town Sedan was my favorite in the show. I love the bright colors that changed depending upon the angle from which it was viewed. If you look real close, you will see reflections galore in this one, most notably a red Chevy pickup that was parked beside it.

According to Wikipedia, "The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model sold between 1955 and 1970 by the Ford Motor Company in North America. The name was taken from Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan. Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-size car but became a mid-size car from the 1962 model year. The mid-sized model spawned the Australian-built Fairlane in 1967, although it was considered a large car there." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Fairlane_Americas)

Check out the original here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/17330226_SSNF6P#1361726886_85RFQx2.

Your comments regarding my first "major" pp work on yesterday's T-Bird were both inspiring and appreciated. By the way, my hubby and our two sons are the "vintage vehicle/car buffs."
