Tuesday, January 25, 2011  "PULLING STRAWS?"  "Remember when looking in the mirror, it is always looking back at you; the reflections seen are only ever as kind or as ill as your own projections." ~ Morrigan  I didn't have to pull straws for this one.......woo hoo!!!   This is MY FIRST PP'd IMAGE (focal b/w, uncropped, however). I stepped outside of my comfort zone. Furthermore, I am such a "visual" person. On Sunday, after creating yesterday's POTD using marbles and the mirror, I decided to see what image I could create with straws and the mirror.  Too much time on my hands? Well, all work and no play....... you know what they say.  I am overwhelmingly appreciative of your comments regarding yesterday's "Marbelicious" photo. It landed in the #8 spot.     The original version of the photo can be viewed here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/15299231_BkGGq#1168324428_2gjWC  SmugMuggers rock!!!!!!  ***#6 photo of the day and all time****  (photo taken and pp'd on 1/23/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Monday, April 16, 2012       "FOUNTAIN"  “A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.” ~ Author Unknown  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 therefore, I have never opened or used it. I have steady hands:).  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
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.

May 5 1945 Denmark was liberated by the British  from Nazi occupation, later American forces joined in. The picture is from my parental home where my parents gave accommodation to these two soldiers for about a fortnight as few accommodations were available. The soldier on the right is British and the one to the left I think was American.  I am the boy in between. My memory of these days are vague, but I remember that one of them had a jeep parked in front of the house and I had great pleasure of learning to drive by repeatedly use of the self-starter and thus moving  the jeep half a block away. As my father caught me in the act I was at once send to bed. The picture was taken by my father with his prewar Contax
