09-18-2014 "Sunset over Little Roundtop"  I was standing on the porch of our friend's cabin in the mountains and this beautiful sunset had us all breathless.  It was amazing and kept changing colors.  I liked these colors best.  Little Roundtop is a peak behind their cabin with the view in front looking at the valley.  If you cross over this mountain range you enter the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  If you look closely you can see lights from other cabins as specks in the mountains.  Thank you for your support and comments on my photos. Donna
Monday, July 21, 2008  (day 52)  Went to Eastern State Penitentiary with friends who can't join the SmugMug group on August 13th.  Plus, I filled out a survey on the way out and I have 4 free passes for the SmugMug group!  It was soooo hot and humid.  It was fun to shot there, I think (hope) I learned alot from my mistakes, don't you just love digital!!!
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.

Guacamole!  It has been a few days since I have posted anything.  I've been preoccupied with my crochet - or my attempts at crochet.  ;)  I actually made a hot pad that was only very slightly askew instead of very very askew.  That is progress... right?  We had chicken fajitas for dinner tonight.  I have been wanting to try my hand at making home made guacamole.  This is my first attempt and I have to say - not too bad.  I have no idea how to buy a decent avacado...  so they weren't very ripe which in turn made it difficult to get them smashed up.  Thanks to the handy dandy blender I succeeded!  Too bad I am the only one in the family home right now that will eat it.  Oh well..  that just means more for me!  Guess what...  Emily is coming home on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!  This will be the first time she has been home since she moved to  Austin to attend the University of Texas.  I have really missed her and can't wait to give her a big hug.
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.

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, July 21, 2013    "B" is for BATHTUBS  "Every tub has to sit on its own bottom." ~ Title of a book written by Zora Neal Hurston  Photo submission for Donna McCommon's "Alphabet Challenge"   For some reason, when I saw this scene, I was reminded of the scene in "The Help" movie where the commodes (toilets), as opposed to bathtubs, were in the front yard of Hilly Hollbrook's house:).  Have a wonderfully blessed day, my friends!

12-26: Another from the golf course on Wednesday morning. There was a heavy frost on the trees which, in this shot, was helping to pick up a glow from the sun.
Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY
June 30...    A 250 year old house of a sea captain. The two dogs in the window have a special meaning: When they were looking out of the window the husband were at sea, when looking into the house he was at home and her special friends should stay away.
3/19/13 - Old locomotive at Old Town Tucson.  Thanks so muich for your warm response, making my shot of the Presidio arches the #1 shot for the day.  A few more of you preferred the color version, but quite a few thought the b/w version was better.  Thanks for sharing your opinions with me!
