April 16, 2014  Sunday we took my husbands 92 ear old grandmother to Washington to see the National Cherry Festival.  She is in fantastic health but a little unsteady at times on her feet.  Due to the crowds she wanted to remained in the car, we got as close to everything as we could and drove outside the city to have a picnic lunch.  This photo was taken as we drove over the Kutz Bridge.

Family at a street festival, Belitung Island, Sumatra  I couldn't decide whether to feature this photo or the one posted here (+ some other people pics) http://goo.gl/OijZfI.  I'd be interested to see which one you SmugMuggers prefer.  In the end I decided on this one with the different focus for each individual.  The man is interested in the festival, the woman in her baby, and the baby is interested in me and my camera.    16/04/14 www.allenfotowild.com
4/16/14 - Cactus, or, possibly, a succulent; at any rate, I really liked the shape, as well as the light and textures.  I think it is worth viewing in the largest size.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the little running Indian boy.
04-16-2014 - Looking for Letters and this image was edged out by another.  The Logo of Whataburger Fast food restaurants could be for Humpday Wednesday too...
Another image taken Monday morning at the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park.
We have a wonderful tree in our front yard that makes these  pretty flowers. The yellow  color is Snapdragons and the brick on our walk way made the pink color. I really didn't do much to this picture and I had to shoot it several times before I figured out the yellow and pink parts:)  Silly Billie!
Wednesday, April 16, 2014  "SASSY and AZALEAS"  "If you keep your feathers well oiled, the water of criticism will run off as from a duck's back." ~ Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards  SOOC, uncropped, flash fired  Sassy is always one decked out and well-dressed duck. The owner changes her attire frequently. When I stopped by yesterday; she told me that "Sassy will have one bad outfit on for Easter." I told her that I would be back. You've met Sassy twice before:  here (2013): http://godschild.smugmug.com/DailyPhotos/2014-2013/i-Jz5MkpW/A  and here (2012): http://godschild.smugmug.com/DailyPhotos/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2012/i-jQDdrvT/A  Have a shucky, shucky, lucky, ducky, quack-me-up kind of hump day:)!

April 16, 2014  The recent series of photos I posted from Las Vegas were  primarily from our visit to the Fremont Street Experience.  This series of shots were a result of our trip (Bill and I) that we  took to Las Vegas so that we could work his booths (for the 28th straight year, for him, I've only gone 11 years) at the International Safari Club show (aka SCI) & convention.    The SCI show is a giant trade show with everything you can imagine on display.   It attracts visitors from all over the world.   There are (I'm guessing) about 2,000 booths selling African safaris (hunt/photo safaris), hunts in all areas of North America, South America, New Zealand, Africa, Europe and many other countries.  There are booths selling taxidermy services, jewelry, art, sculpture, furs, home decor,  guns, clothing, purses/cases, books, education, glassware, silverware, home lighting, bullets, leather goods and more stuff which is all safari/hunting themed.  It's a plethora of sights and sounds.    Of course Bill is there because he is the owner and face of Americase and sells airline duty gun cases.  It's kind of interesting that the gun cases were his first product, and now his smallest - yet the product that put the company in the limelight 30 years ago.  He developed the gun cases because he was flying around the U.S. and shooting competitively in skeet, trap and sporting clay tournaments and the airlines kept breaking his guns.  So he said, "I can build a better case."  And he did.  He started the company in his garage 30 years ago.  Today the company's gun case sales are a small portion of what they do.  Now Americase is more into building airline duty shipping containers and work for the aerospace, industry, computer, airlines, oil and gas, and other disciplines.    But he continues to go to the SCI show, and will I"m sure for many more years to come in order to pay tribute to the first industry that paid attention to his company:  the hunting and sport shooting (targets) industry.  So I guess you could say, he's still dancing with the "one who brung him."  So this photo is from the show and  is one of the taxidermy displays, I thought it was great.  Hunting may not the most politcally correct activity, and neither Bill or I hunt - but I think you all will enjoy seeing some of the displays from the show.  Both of us shoot when we can as it's an activity we enjoy, but we shoot at Clay Pidgeons only.    Hope you enjoy seeing the rest of the Las Vegas/Safari Club shots that will be from the show & convention.  I thank you for all your comments and critiques from the Las Vegas trip an the street scenes from the Fremont Street Experience.  Have a wonderful day today my friends.

Fall Reflections in the Central Oregon Cascades
Our favorite beach place has this interesting mural of steel town life but I like that he seems to be looking at the messy tray with a scowl on his face.    Having a friend look at my PC tomorrow . Will be able to brows thereafter or contact SM. It snowed today!  16/04/2014
Daily Post 1139-  105/365   4/15/2014 -Photos matted, framed and hung!   I am very, very fortunate that I have an ongoing 'gallery' where I can share my photos at will. You may or may not know I am a Dental Hygienist by profession (40 years this June, by the way!!!) The office where I work in Yardley, PA had some open wall space crying for art a few years ago and I was invited to bring in some of my photos. It has been such an amazing experience for me to hang my photography there and have an audience see my work day after day, I'm happy to say that with this open invitation I have been able to see growth in my photography over the years and am more and more excited all the time with what I have to share with our patients.   You may recognize these photos as ones I shared here in The Daily Community over the last few months. These 2 photos were the largest I have every had printed. They were printed and matted by our SmugMug friends at Bay Photo Labs! I adore their quality. I had them matted to a standard size of 24"x36" so I could frame with ready-made frames.  Do any of you have your photos hanging in any publicly viewed areas? It would be great to see some of your hanging photos, too. This was just an iPhone shot that I took this evening afterwork that I posted to Instagram at the end of the day!   Thank you all  for your many good wishes for us for the Passover holiday. I appreciate your thoughts on seeing the Seder Plate, too, and that you clicked on that link. Just as a point of clarification that was a traditional plate of symbolic food and not a plate of food that anyone actually ate. We did have many of those foods as part of the service that was read. Passover itself is a Jewish holiday celebrating the Exodus of The Israelites who had been slaves under the rule of the Egyptian Pharaohs. It is a holiday celebrating freedom and dignity for ourselves and many people all over the world.  If you are interested to learn more, this is a good link for an easy overview explanation of Passover

15.04.14 - Light and Shadows  This is from my guided photo walk last night while there was still a bit of colour in the sky. This is one of my regular photo spots, but I don't think I've used it as a Daily for a while. The couple under the light were very drunk and were struggling to walk up the hill!

Sunday we took my husbands 92 ear old grandmother to Washington to see the National Cherry Festival. She is in fantastic health but a little unsteady at times on her feet. Due to the crowds she wanted to remained in the car, we got as close to everything as we could and drove outside the city to have a picnic lunch. This photo was taken as we drove over the Kutz Bridge.

Each year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival commemorates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC. The gift and annual celebration honor the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan and the continued close relationship between the two countries. http://www.nationalcherryblossomfestival.org/about/history/
