2015 Calendar - Not yet complete I've reached May.  I need to finish it in the next two weeks so that it will be ready to sell in time for Advent.  This year's theme is "Transitions - Bridges and Stairways in Vienna".  The entire design is mine:  A4 wall calendar with a spiral binding, Austrian and US holidays. P.S.  Critiques particularly welcome.
15.09.14 - The Little Fella  It has been a while since I posted a shot of Mr Willis, but he hasn't changed. This is from our late afternoon walk yesterday, across the fields in beautiful light. We were out a lot longer than planned because I ended up picking a few pounds of damsons for a jam making session later today. While I was distracted by the fruit Willis found things to roll in, but the moment he saw the camera he put on his innocent act of course!
Tuesday, September 16, 2014  "UNTITLED - The Concave Dish" by Anish Kapoor (2010)  "A mirror reflects a man's face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses." ~  General Colin Luther Powell  The "Dream Cars" were the stars, but there were some awesome art pieces, too. This one was my favorite in the permanent collection. The colors reflected are from the clothes my hubby and I were wearing, as well as those of others who were standing in close proximity. Amazing!  "In his remarkable body of work Turner Prize-winning artist "Anish Kapoor has combined art and science into a layered, multi-sensory experience for his audience. He employs a familiar form in Untitled—the concave dish—in order to create the uncanny sense of limitlessness through the myriad fractured reflections of the viewer in its surface and the astonishing acoustic effects that its concave form produces. The surface’s triangular patterning is a result of Kapoor’s interest in fractals, wherein multiples are equivalent to the whole. Kapoor’s work invites discovery and provides an endlessly engaging experience for its audience."

House Fire: They call me "Scoop Murray" at my office and this is the reason why... I seem to be at the right place at the right time - every time something happens. I've been witness to train vs car accidents, car jacking (last month), rescues at sea, various house fires...you name it. It's uncanny. Yesterday was no exception. An electrical fire broke out at a house down the street from me. I couldn't seen flames but some smoke was briefly visible. I arrived just as the FD started their attack on the fire. They knocked the fire down with amazing speed and saved the house. Thank you Saugus FD!  09/16/2014

Finding abstracts in sycamore bark, or in the bark of many other trees, is almost too easy.    This particular shot had a wider range of colors than is typically found on this tree.  Mostly you find a range of grays, tans, browns.  The only thing I did to bring out the colors was to make various levels and contrast adjustments;  I applied no extra saturation using that adjustment tool in Photoshop, and no color shifts.  No other filters were applied to alter textural details, either.  The pores that are found in sycamore bark do a pretty good job of that on their own.  I did apply a very modest amount of sharpening with 'Unsharp Mask'.  That's all.  DP238-2014  Posted September 15; processed September 14 I hope that some of my efforts will inspire other members of the DP community to jump in with their own abstracts.  I know that there are several of you who have done, and continue to do this.  The more, the merrier.  It's such fun!

9/15/14 - Hollyhock; I just liked the backlit flower petals, as well as the hairy stems.  I think this is worth viewing in the largest size  Thanks for your response to my "orange" shot for Indigo's Color Challenge.  Indigo challenged us to post a blue image for prostate awareness on September 28 and to post a pink shot on, I think, the last Sunday of October for breast cancer awareness.  On the other Sundays of September and October, she challenged us to post an image of primarily a single color...we pick the color each week and could even repeat a color if we choose.  Thanks for this challenge, Indigo!
