August 20, 2014 The Basilica of St Fidelis  Cathedral of the Plains Victoria, Kansas Just  east of Hayes, KS about 10 miles south of  Interstate 70 is the very small community of Victoria (pop 1208)and the Cathedral of the Plains.  We visited it last summer but weren't able to go in.  On my way home from Colorado last month I stopped and was thrilled to get to go inside.  It is breath taking! Built from 1908-1911of native limestone, quarried seven miles south of Victoria by the Volga-German community.  It was named Cathedral of the Plains by William Jennings Bryan when he visited on a presidential campaign stop in 1912.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the 8th wonders of Kansas.    I will share  more on this masterpiece in  the coming days.  Somewhere between Texas and Colorado I misplaced the release plate for my tripod so these are handheld  and not the clarity I wanted but I am still thrilled to have gotten to experience this beautiful cathedral. http://stfidelischurch.com/History/StFidelisChurch/ThePresentChurch/tabid/4438/Default.aspx  Thank you for your comments on the Domino Grill!  There isn't a man VS food challenge here,  just some old gentlemen playing dominoes while their wife's cook.   It is as "Texas country" as it gets. No gimmicks just amazing food. Jeanne
"It's suppertime!",,,,  This time of the day reminds me of when we would be called in for supper, as kids.   Walked over to the mall ,and back along this street in the late afternoon light,which is my favorite time for walking. It was a very warm and sunny Tuesday ,with a slight chill.   post for 17/09/14

9/17/14 - Thunderbird, 1957?  We were eating lunch at one of the food trucks locations and I saw this fantastic old T-bird pulling up to the stop light.  I always wanted a T-bird.  Thanks for your comments on my backlit sunflower.

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!

9/15/2014 ~ Livin' the High Life  Residential High Rise Austin, Texas  Austin is a boomtown and the Young Urban Professionals love high rise living. They are going up everywhere. This one is located along the riverfront and these windows face the Congress Avenue Bridge and have a great view of the bats as they emerge every evening.   Thank you for the kind comments yesterday on my Hamburger and Sweet Potato Fries shot!

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!

11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann
