03.05.15  Happy Birthday me (yesterday)  Thanks for the awesome comments on the Hit-and-Run Snowman picture.  I made a carrot cake for my birthday. I sort of used my mom's recipe. Sometimes she would add a can of drained crushed pineapple. I did that. I've been experimenting with substitutions for sugar and/or oil/shortening in recipes. This time I substituted with apple sauce and a ripe banana. This was the best carrot cake I've ever had. Now I need to figure out how to make a healthier cream cheese frosting.

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.

God is and has been exceptionally kind to all of us; have a blessed and safe Sunday, everyone.

Monday, June 24, 2013   "MONDAY BLUES"  “The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you!” ~  Coco Chanel    SOOC, uncropped, flash fired   "I think a number of us agree that Mondays are the most difficult transition. Although it has the same number of hours as the rest of the days, our internal clocks naturally operate on a day that is longer than 24 hours. It seems that it takes ages to get Monday over. We just had two glorious days off free from stress and doing stuff we love to do. Now we are back at work facing piles of tasks that meeting deadlines, list of appointments or some difficult unsolved tasks that we don’t really feel like doing." ~ Reprinted texts from http://www.123Greetings.com  "Hey, come on… No matter we like it or not, we still have to get things done and to get the day over. Let's take some of the control back and make ourselves feel good by doing small things that can redirect your focus, such as share with your colleague about the fun you have over the weekend, reading some jokes, positive quotes or watch a short fun video. Let's fill up the Monday Blues with some colours." ~ Reprinted texts from http://www.123Greetings.com  Here's the final test shot of one of my favorite necklaces taken with the new 35mm lens. I placed one of my crinkled blouses underneath as a backdrop.  Someone apologized for posting a comment prior to me posting my "Starter Comment." Don't get the blues and "sweat the small stuff" regarding comments being posted prior to the "Starter Comment." I don't mind at all.  Have a beautiful "blue" Monday!  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 6/22/2013)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com
Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs has fantastic views, throw in a thunder storm and things get real interesting. Sharp eyed viewers will spot a climber on one of the formations.

08OCT2012  Milling Around  Dell's Mill aka Clark's Mill with some Fall foliage all lit up in the morning sun......Great place, scenic area with lots of barns to shoot as well.  Image won First Place in the "Travel Category" n4c.us in October 2012, submitted through the Omaha Camera Club.  Comments are welcome, lots of Wisconsin images to upload....have a great day!  Dan, sorry we didn't know you lived there....great area.
Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle
June 11, 2011    This is the same abandoned station where the marching line of gas pumps were found.  You can see that shot posted on June 5th here if you missed it.  I know many of you have seen it because of the wonderful comments which are very appreciated.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Daily-Photos-2010/12484643_ezMcC#1367630283_kkxm8S9    This is another set of gas pumps that are older in style, and were in front of the abandoned station.  As I mentioned before, there were 100s of pumps around this place.  It was so cool.    And here's an old sign that was in front of this old place- http://lgood.smugmug.com/Other/Signs/7752337_483tx//1061733754_#1376000970_H7MsspG    This was such a cool place and it brought back lots of memories for me from days gone by.  I hope you all enjoy it.    Linda
