After a much (hours) delayed appearance, this version is appearing in the DP gallery, so I'll move the color version back to the 'Take Your Pick' gallery. This is a resaved version from photoshop. If you commented on the earlier (now deleted) upload, please know that I did see your comments and appreciate them.  Compared with yesterday's abstract, the processing on this one was a piece of cake:  BW conversion followed by application of Poster Edges filter. You can see the original uncropped shot here http://smu.gs/1mityrf  , and a cropped version in color, using different filters  here  http://smu.gs/1qifMzz  .  It was a bit of a toss up for me whether to post the BW or the filtered color version.  DP262-2014  Posted September 19; processed September 18 from an image taken September 9 in Gallup Park.  Title:  Abstract - Thistle Down in Monochrome  IN7955 (thirteenth in the current series)  Many thanks for the response to my geometric mini-planet post yesterday.  Creating these images is very much like opening a box of chocolates...  They're easy enough to do that I don't feel bad about discarding the ones that don't work.
Signs of fall  A visiting friend wanted to go out to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary near Vancouver today.  This is an internationally reknown migration stopover point for birds, and a critical habitat for birds migrating along the Pacific Flyway. So I grabbed my camera and off we went. Signs of fall were everywhere, including this abandoned wasp's nest hanging over the water among a few fall leaves and red crabapples.

Sept 19 - Colors Stacked Against a Wall  I found these kayaks stacked against an outside wall at an outdoor sporting goods store.    Thanks for your comments on my cabbage image I posted yesterday!!

Friday, September 19, 2014  "MOUTH #15" by Tom Wesselmann (1968)  "Listen more than you talk—and resist the temptation to fill awkward conversation gaps with awkward conversation. The uncomfortable silence is always better than saying something silly you may regret later."  ~ Emily Bennington  Thank you all for the comments on yesterday's "Sushi Sofa." It was the #5 photo of the day. Thanks for the forwarded e-mails, "fellow SmugMugger." I don't eat Sushi, but my hubby does; and when I thought about the appearance of the couch, my thoughts reflected to a photo that I posted of Sushi on April 9, 2012 here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Foodtography/Edible/i-6TJSR9M/A.   "Tom Wesselmann appropriated imagery from pop culture, incorporating magazine photos and newspaper ads into his frank depictions of American domestic interiors populated by female nudes. Later, focusing on individual body parts such as feet, mouths, and breasts, Wesselmann began to imagine them as disembodied, often on a monumental scale. In his Mouth series Wesselmann depicts a single female mouth on a canvas shaped to the contours of the lips. Like Warhol’s use of Marilyn Monroe’s lips, Wesselmann’s Mouth paintings investigate how sex is used to sell celebrity. Mouth #15 is a three-quarter-length view of a black-and-white laughing mouth that is at once seductive, remote, and ominous."  Artist Name:  Tom Wesselmann Nationality & Life Dates:  American, 1931 - 2004 Title:  Mouth #15 Date:  1968 Medium:  Oil on shaped canvas Dimensions:  68 x 91 inches Credit Line:  Purchase in honor of Rawson Foreman, Chairman of the Board of Directors, 1998-1999, with funds from Alfred Austell Thornton in memory of Leila Austell Thornton and Albert Edward Thornton, Sr., and Sarah Miller Venable and William Hoyt Venable Accession Number:  1999.47 Copyright: © Estate of Tom Wesselmann/Licensed by VAGA, New York, NY  On View - Stent Family Wing, Skyway Level, Gallery 404   ~ Reprinted information from here: http://www.high.org/Art/Permanent-Collection/CollectionDetails.aspx?deptName=Modern and Contemporary Art&objNum=1999.47&pageNumber=0&search=true  My complete "High Museum of Art" 2014 gallery is here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Museums/High-Museum-of-Art-2014/i-gvQjvDP  High Museum of Art 1280 Peachtree Street, N.E.

18.09.14 - Dribbler  I got 4 shots of this young swan on my way into town along the river yesterday afternoon. This is my favourite because it captured the combination of water drops, ripples and shadows best.. This guy is probably about 6 months old, almost as big as an adult but still with juvenile feathers.
September 19, 2014  "Most of our best memories come from old dirt roads." ~ Me  This was the start of one of our (many) wonderful backroad trips in Utah.  We saw some gorgeous scenery and landscapes along the route.  You'll see some photos from the drive in the future.  On this road, we did actually climb over the far mountains and back down again to arrive at Hwy 89, that took us into Page, AZ.  Along the route we saw the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument and our GPS told us we were traveling along a portion of the Old Spanish Trail.    Go exploring today my friends!

Thanks for your warm response to my shot of the old house in Colorado Springs. I really enjoyed looking at all your wonderful shots today. We spent the day at the Chihuly exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens and it was just incredible. I tried to upload one of the images to post tonight, but couldn't get it to upload. I'll try again tomorrow. Have a great day!
