08/07/10 - Beauty on Orange For the 3rd day this week, I took my lunch break at Porter Farms and Nursery  to get some refreshment at the ice cream stand and take butterfly pictures on their butterfly bushes.  Nextdoor to Porters is Ogburn Landscape Supplies.  Johnny has been fascinated this week watching the front loaders load mulch and rock into pick-up trucks.  Mom has been using the one pile of orange tone sand for picture back-drops.  The butterfly bushes are positioned just right;-)  At any point, I realize I've posted 5 swallowtail shots already in 3 months, but this one seemed so different with the orange tone background and underbelly perspective that I thought I'd share it too.  I'm thinking NC State Fairgrounds this AM for the flea market followed by the JC Raulstron Arboretum (which is a mile away) afterward if it's not too warm.  We haven't done the flea market in a while, and I don't think I've ever taken the boys to that arboretum.  It's tax free weekend in NC which means saving about 7.25% on clothes, school supplies, and computers.  Kohl's was packed last night!  Hoping you are having a great weekend so far and that it continues! Maryann
9.15.13: A Grizzly Bear in Denali National Park makes his way through the colorful fall foliage on a great day in the Preserve.
8.14.13: The Chugach Mountains ring Anchorage to the east and south and this is the view from my office at sunset. I must admit not a bad view any day of the week.
Sunday, May 15, 2011   "ANTIQUE CHEVY"  (pp version)  "Keep calm and drive a Chevy!" ~ Unknown Author  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.

050211  Tree in Shohola Falls    Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.
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.

Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY
day 108: "the hills have eyes—south jersey". we drove to canton, nj to visit my brother and he took us on a quick tour down an isolated marsh-surrounded road. i loved the area as there are no wires or telephone polls. just a nuke cooling tower in the background... and a strange shack in the middle of the marsh... and NO cell reception... and, uh, it was kinda freaky actually. i hopped out of the van and ran half way up the planked entrance to take this shot ignoring the "no trespassing" sign and the full-on assault of green head flies. in mid-shot my brother beeped the horn and drove away leaving me. funny guy. he drove back. i may be heading back here to sneak closer next time. curiosity has me cranked to check out the shack.
The Eyes  Thu. November 6, 2008 (Day 206)    I'm still sorting some files from  photo shoot last weekend, and I think this one deserve the spot.     I took some pics today but not too crazy about them.   They only deserve to be in the  Alternate gallery.    Hmm... I need a good rest tonight. Have a good evening all.
12-15: Sunday we woke up to more snow and bitter cold. When I took this picture in the afternoon it was only about 4 degrees F! The sun was causing some fog to form over Horsetooth
A golden day
08/07/10 - Beauty on Orange
For the 3rd day this week, I took my lunch break at Porter Farms and Nursery to get some refreshment at the ice cream stand and take butterfly pictures on their butterfly bushes. Nextdoor to Porters is Ogburn Landscape Supplies. Johnny has been fascinated this week watching the front loaders load mulch and rock into pick-up trucks. Mom has been using the one pile of orange tone sand for picture back-drops. The butterfly bushes are positioned just right;-) At any point, I realize I've posted 5 swallowtail shots already in 3 months, but this one seemed so different with the orange tone background and underbelly perspective that I thought I'd share it too.

I'm thinking NC State Fairgrounds this AM for the flea market followed by the JC Raulstron Arboretum (which is a mile away) afterward if it's not too warm. We haven't done the flea market in a while, and I don't think I've ever taken the boys to that arboretum.

It's tax free weekend in NC which means saving about 7.25% on clothes, school supplies, and computers. Kohl's was packed last night!

Hoping you are having a great weekend so far and that it continues!
