September 3, 2014  This old farm house was near to Altamont, Utah.  The area around it was fenced off, so I wasn't able to get very close.  Nevertheless, I wanted to capture it because it seemed lonely, but loved.  What I mean by loved is that someone took the time to put a fence around it to (I suppose) keep vandals away from it.  And the tattered curtains that are still in the windows. the decorative screen door and the mailbox made me imagine that perhaps this was the home of a beloved grandparent or great-grandparent, and the heirs were trying to keep it as a reminder of a happy childhood.  Who knows?  That's just what I thought of when seeing it.  "The simple hearth of the small farm is the true center of our universe."  ~ Masanobu Fukuoka  Create some memories today my friends.

May 14,2014  For those of you who were around when I did my #2 daughter's pre-wedding photos several years ago in Waxahachie, TX and now Candace's  --you'll recognize this mural.  It's one of my favorite places to pose people for photos.  It's on the side of an old building in town that used to be a tattoo shop, so I guess that's why the butterfly wings were painted on the building.  Today, the building is a very popular restaurant, and many times cars are parked in front of the butterfly - but we got lucky the afternoon of her shoot that there weren't any cars there.  "I remember when I was in school, they would ask, 'What are you going to be when you grow up?' and then you'd have to draw a picture of it. I drew a picture of myself as a bride." ~ Gwen Stefani  Thank you all for your generous and thoughtful comments on my photo of the Jamaican sunset yesterday, I am greatly appreciative.

July 9, 2011    Here's another interesting find along one of our drives around northern New Mexico.  I don't remember exactly where we were, but I thought this "art" gallery (that was closed, by the way) had some pretty interesting "junk" around it.  Notice the old rusted bed springs on the side of the wall near the Dirt Floor Gallery sign.  We found lot's of interesting rust around this place.  Check it out in X2 to see all the "stuff" around - and this photo captures just a little bit of the stuff that was there.    Click here to see the "muffler" and other junk sculpture that was in the side yard of this establishment.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Humor/Random-Somewhat-Odd/7752400_GGnJ9#1367976951_kWkzMv6    Enjoy!    Best,  Linda
Day 356- Tree and Afternoon Sun -  Dec 27.  What a treat the weather was today.  Wonderful to have a walk in the warm late afternoon sun.
July 26, 2011    Happy Tuesday everyone!  Thanks for all your kind comments on my New Mexico landscape photo yesterday, they were so appreciated.    This is another New Mexico shot of some lovely flowers.  We saw this type of flower all over Taos, in many different colors, but I really liked these pink ones the best.  I think maybe they could be Gladiolas - but I'm not sure.  I'm woefully inadequate at identifying flowers, so any expert advice would be welcome.    This shot was taken in the late afternoon, early evening in the Taos marketplace.  I liked their delicate pink colors and detail of the centers.  If you have time - check this out in the larger sizes, it's interesting.    FOLLOW UP:  See comments:  Thanks so much to Arctangent and John Roberts for their identification of these as Hollyhocks!!  I really appreciate the information, as I had no clue what they are, and I thought they were so lovely.  Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    Have a great day my friends!  Linda
June 10, 2010 - "Come In, Sit For Awhile"  Open the gate in yesterdays photo and here's what you see.  Our room at the Gage Hotel was immediately to the right. We stayed here our last night in Big Bend Country and our photography friends group had wine and cheese on this patio before dinner.  I can now see many photo ops I missed as I look back at some these shots around the Gage. This is all part of the never ending photography learning adventure.  Another really tough choice, but I went with this exaggerated color image versus the timeless sepia at http://www.dakotacowboyphotography.com/Photography/Daily-Photo-Proof-Alternates/8374515_pozc7#892966978_veDBx
