This is a Old Oil Drilling Rig.
This is one of the four 1966 GT 350 Drag Cars built by Shelby. I had the pleasure of standing about 20 feet from the car when the owner decided to start the engine within the building. The sound was quite impressive.

07.25.14  Bessie the Cow  Yeah, this is a dog, but when Wayne adopted her she came with the name of Bessie the Cow. Wayne likes to tell people that that is her full name.  Yesterday I felt terrible and got very little done. Hopefully today I will feel more productive.

In the past year or so, Matthaei Botanical Gardens has taken what to my mind is a long overdue step and begun installing sculptures at various locations in the outside gardens.  I think such works add a great deal to one's enjoyment of the spaces. Shown here is a work in cast bronze titled 'Face of Infinity', by Ted Bell.  I was unsuccessful in finding anything online about either the artist or the work itself.  It sits at the boundary between the Children's Garden and the Herb Garden portions of Matthaei.  DP206-2014  Posted (late) July 25; created ditto I make no comment on my own response to this particular work.  I don't want to bias or prejudice others viewing it for the first time.  As you can see in the center panels, a bed of deep orange crocosmia is in bloom behind this work.  Yellow daylilies and pale purple bergamot are also in bloom further away. I used a crop of one of my photos of the crocosmia to creat the top and bottom panels of the composite.  Individual photos were taken July 18, 2014, at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens Title:  'Face of Infinity' Among the Eternal Beauty of Flowers

24.07.14 - Let the Games Commence  This is the centre of town at the moment, with a big screen so that people can watch the Commonwealth Games while shopping! There is a continental food market on the High Street behind me, and I did spend a few minutes on the astroturf eating a French Tart while England's Brownlee brothers took gold and silver in the triathlon :)
Field of Mustard Flowers Summer in Idaho is a beautiful thing.  These mustard fields blew my mind with their sunshine yellow color!
Belknap One-Room Schoolhouse25 July 2014 -- 206/365Johnston, Rhode IslandDating to 1897, this well preserved one-room schoolhouse sits near the center of what was once the Belknap Village section of Johnston.  As is common in every one-room schoolhouse I've seen, there are two front entrances to the building.  This was not a safety feature as would be true in a building built today, but was rather a means of segregating the sexes.  Girls entered through the door on the left, and boys entered through the door on the right.  I always found this concept amusing, since there was no gender segregation once inside the building.  This image is a tone-mapped HDR (High Dynamic Range) composite of 9 images taken in 1-stop increments.  Tone-mapping was performed in Photomatix Pro and the resulting TIF brought into PSE.  The black and white conversion started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX.  I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, boost black, boost white, and protect highlights.  A levels adjustment was added in PSE.
