Day 203: Butterfly - Eastern Tiger Swallowtail - July 23
Worshipping At Woton's Throne August 2009 This is my favorite shot from my first trip ever to the Grand Canyon.  Woton's Throne sits on the North Rim at Cape Royal.  This sunrise is the most beautiful sunrise I've seen in my entire life.  Arguably, this is my favorite shot from the year 2009 as well.

92/365 - Playing tourist Since my new camera is supposed to be great for street photography, I stopped by Pike Place Market after work to give that a try. I was too chicken to point the camera at anyone so ended up with a picture of the Original Starbucks instead. There are a couple of people in there, so maybe it counts!

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.

Trust    DP135-2013  Posted May 15; processed ditto    Songbirds in the woods around the Nature Center have learned to trust humans who hold out food for them in their hands.  (Signs along the trails politely ask people to feed the birds ONLY by hand, not to put food on the ground for them, and NOT to feed the cranes.)  On the last day of my sister's visit, we walked in these woods and fed the birds.  Feeling their almost negligible weight and the tiny prick of their claws as they land and daintily snatch the chosen seed is a pleasure beyond description.

07.22.14  Thistle and Bees  Thanks for the comments yesterday. Here is a link that has the Pebble beach Corporation logo on it. Getting out and taking pictures is a challenge. If i continue to participate in the current challenge, I may resort to posting logo related photos. Thanks. http://www.pebblebeach.com/about/pebble-beach-company-foundation  Chemo didn't go well. We did the infusion but my WBC count was 900. You can read my post with the Sisterhood's picture.   I am glad to have a project to work on with my brother and his t-shirt designs. I miss being able to get out and take pictures. I take the camera to chemo on Mondays... and when I have the energy I try to take El Jay somewhere--I don't always take the camera. With Monday's low WBC count, I am suppose to stay home until I have had both shots. Thursday is Pioneer Day in Utah--the Boy would like to attend a parade.   Jeddy will be moving here next week. This is a huge sacrifice for him. He is only 19-years old. I am finding that I need more help on a day to day basis with Logan, my brother and household things. Even time sitting at a computer wears me out quickly. Yet (!!!) I am getting better.  Jeddy Grant needs help loading the uHaul on August 28th in Albuquerque. If you can help please contact him.  He is also a little short cash-wise. We have enough for a uHaul and most of the gas $$$. But nothing for food or a hotel room Monday night--as of this mrning he needs less than $100 to get to Riverdale. I hate asking. If anyone can help... my paypal account is indigo_sage@yahoo.com. Anything would be helpful. Thanks.

August 30, 2009 - "1941 Ford Super Deluxe"    This was shot at the Palm Springs Air Museum.  The SOOC had so many distracting reflections that I could not work around.  So, I thought I would push this beautiful stock '41 Ford to this extreme.  I do not see to many candy apple red cars around anymore :)      I just competed a gallery with the SOOC and several other cars from the museum.    http://dakotacowboy.smugmug.com/Cars/Palm-Springs-Air-Museum-Cars/9405377_H6KiD/1/630121733_CxF5M    Airplanes from the museum are at another gallery     http://dakotacowboy.smugmug.com/Military/Palm-Springs-Air-Museum-2009/8329002_YUVa2/1/578640610_Q5Nsr
