4/23/2014 ~ Forgotten Beauty  Antique Roses at an Abandoned House near Corsicana, Texas. This sad old house had the most incredible rose bushes growing around it. Never pruned, never fertilized, never watered except for the rain, yet they thrive.   Thank you for the lovely comments on yesterday's shot of the mare in the bluebonnets! They are always much appreciated!

22.04.14 - Quiet Reflection  It was a very different day filming yesterday, entirely inside a tent, capturing the more relaxed moments away from the front. It was quite a bright day and despite laying dark towels on the outside of the tent I still had to close the camera down a bit to get the lamplight look. The actor here is Reece Ackerman who plays Robert Crowder.  Huge thanks again for the wonderful comments on my "trench shot" yesterday. This is a fantastic project to be part of and we can't wait until Autumn when we can show it to everyone. To clarify my role, I am one of three producers and the stills photographer. My images are used for a wide range of publicity purposes, and will also form part of a larger exhibition that will run alongside the finished film where possible.
April 23. I never imagined I would just be driving down the road to find a peacock in someone's yard, but last weekend it happened.  We hit the brakes and I got out to take some pictures.  It just wouldn't open it's tail feathers for me, bummer.

April 23, 2014  Bill is supervising (LOL) Graham's efforts to role up the banner (while the rest of us are packing up the booth) so that the banner doesn't get rolled up crooked and then won't fit in the tube.   Graham is hard of hearing, so he doesn't have a clue what Bill is saying  Nevertheless, he (Graham) rolled it up perfectly and we got on with our frantic work of tearing down & packing the booth.   We were all working as quickly as possible to get all of the cases packed back in their boxes - because it's 7:00 pm PST, and after 4 days of the show, we want to get finished so we can climb on that 6:00 a.m Pacific time plane to get home.    We all worked hard to pack up, and get  everything loaded on the pallet.   Bill's specialty (which he quickly jumped to after I took this photo) is knowing exactly which box fits which case.  Of course you'd expect that after 30 years.    I'm the tape queen.  He puts the case in the box, and I tape it.  The one job I don't do is shrink wrapping the pallet - it makes me dizzy.  :-)  All in all it was a good show for us, with good sales and good fun.  FYI - I'm just going to post two more photos from this SCI series.  Thanks for your comments.  Smugmugger's ROCK!  Have a lovely day today my friends.  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
Swirls Posted April 22, 2014  I bought an ebook called Visual Imagination by David duChemin of Craft & Vision. Here is one of the techniques he discusses in the book.  To answer yesterdays' question, I use many sources for textures including taking my own. My favorite is Dirty Pictures from Totally Rad or Karen Klassen's Texture Tuesday (free)  http://www.gettotallyrad.com  or http://karenklassen.com
04-23-2014 "White and Bright"  While walking through the neighborhood on the photo shoot the other day, I spotted this iris in one of my neighbor's yards.  I had to stop and get a shot.    I am much appreciative of your comments on the senior portrait yesterday.  She is a beautiful girl and I am enjoying the editing so much.   Donna
Pied Avocet - a common wading bird along the shores of the brackish ponds in Burgenland, Austria.  They 'scythe' their bills from side to side searching for minuscule crabs and insects.
04/23/14  Glow sticks in plastic eggs for a night time Easter egg hunt.  The hunt was fun, but we did it Saturday night after I got home from work (so, around midnight) I was exhausted and feeling yucky. The three boys enjoyed it and I think we will do it next year.  However, I wanted to take pictures and simply didn't have the energy to do so. I quickly snapped a few, but didn't have the focus to really arrange the eggs and do other things to set up the photos. There can always be another time to try this.  I am still not feeling well. I do realize that if I am not feeling well that this is good, because it means that the chemo is doing what it is suppose to do--which is ultimately to conquer the cancer.  I work til 1pm today and then (!!!) I do not go back to work until 4pm on Saturday. Hopefully, that will give me plenty of time to do nothing.

4-23-14. Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake. San Felasco Hammock State Park, Gainesville, Florida. 2014.  My hiking buddy and I had to change our plans today when we encountered this Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake in the path, about 3/4 through the hike. We were never closer than about 10-15 feet from it, but it rattled at us and hissed and stood its ground. No budging this snake! This is a loop hike and we had to go back the way we'd come, but we were ok with the change of plans because on the way back we heard a Chuck Will's Widow in the woods and saw a Gopher Tortoise and saw numerous lovely spring wildflowers. Pretty exciting nature day!
