5-18: Sorry for no comments today - Melanie (my wife) had me doing chores almost all day long :(  I'll try to catch up soon.   We were driving by a farm near Lions Park natural area north of Fort Collins and this section of fence caught my eye. I think those little glowing round things are dandelion seed puff things.
Sunlight - I had to wait that the sun settle a bit before shooting this one. I wanted the tree to glow. Cheers - JY
April 27, 2009  Early Morning Fog...
Vertigo, anyone?    Trying to break out of the norm and see things from a new perspective.  This is a relatively new pedestrian bridge that crosses the Eno River and leads into the city park where all of my festival shots have come from.  This was the first time I crossed this bridge so I wanted to capture a few photos to mark the occasion.  Not content with a straight-on approach, I wondered what it would look like if I hung upside down from the top.  It probably goes without saying, but it was much harder to compose a decent shot than I expected. ;-)    Edit: It seems many have missed my little winkie there at the end.  I did NOT actually hang from the top.  I just wondered what it would look like if I had.  The difficulty was in getting the comp I wanted to make the shot look convincing.  This was shot standing on my own two feet, then the image was flipped in post.  While trying to compose this I was wishing for an inverted view, like the old view cameras.
Inside the TicToc Diner - The TicToc Diner in Lake City, CO, is one of only a few surviving diners called Valentine Diners, which were ordered from a catalog.  Today was the day when I could have gotten the shot of a lifetime, but didn't.  After our father's day breakfast at I-Hop, we decided to take a drive over to the Woodland Park area in our old restored 1975 Porsche 911.  Apparently, everyone else in Colorado Springs had the same idea because traffic was incredibly heavy, although moving along at a fast clip.  We're tooling along at about sixty miles an hour and I have my camera in my hand, when out of the corner of my eye I see these big brown shapes.  I swivel my head to look and realize I'm looking at two large brown bears....eating on grass or some other plant.  They looked incredibly cute and rolly polly.  There was no shoulder on which to stop and the traffic was so thick that it was impossible to stop.  I was sick about it.  By the time we got back around, they were gone.  Oh, well, c'est la vie!

I took this picture at an exhibition of Eduard Munch's drawings. Was awarded gold medal from our national Photographic Society
I arrived there in time to catch a little fog for a moodier image.  You can see the Herons nest in the trees. They are pretty far  away. There is a big fence in front of all this so we can't get that close.

I captured this photo in the open ocean, just after he exited the San Francisco Bay.  Needless to say, these were challenging shots to obtain - as my sailboat was going up and down and sideways, my subject was doing the same - and we definitely weren't in sync!    Even open-ocean sailors reported the sailing conditions to be very severe that day.  Articles of the race reported "Conditions were severe under the bridge, and got worse out in the ocean.  It was so rough that Second Verse, a Cascade 36, was hit by a wave and knocked down until the spreaders were under water."  Dave was competing against 14 boats of all types, broke his boom during the trip, and finished the race in 17 days and 3 hours.  Not only did he place second in the race, he received the Single Handed Sailing Society's Belt Buckle, and the Foxxfyre Trophy for creative ingenuity under sail, because after breaking the boom in the race, he repaired it and kept on sailing!  Incredible!
A view of our recent snowstorm from an upstairs window.    The reunion is over.  Our dinner party was a lot of fun, but I'm pretty wiped out.  Tomorrow, though, I'll be back to my regular routine and I hope to catch up on everyone's photos.  Have a good beginning to the week.
Delicate Swan - Sep 23 2010  She (he?) was all alone...  Did some (LOL) PP on this shot to make a kinda delicate picture.
22.3.08 - Happy Easter! We actually had some snow showers today, but none of it settled so no snowy DP today. I had to go into town, and on the way back decided to dodge a particularly nasty snow shower by going into the cathedral. I timed it just right for a guided roof tour, and ended up staying for nearly two hours. This isn't my most innovative or quirky shot of the cathedral, but it does show its gothic majesty off best. I can never get my head round the fact that this was all built by hand; no scaffolding, no cranes, no laser range finders, just blood and sweat. I took over 80 photos today(!), so some of them will make it to other galleries when I get chance. I'll probably start a separate gallery for Cathedral interiors, and there were some stunning views from the roof! Happy Easter..........    I've put one of today's efforts here  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4518270_XDZuH#268878026    New Cathedral Gallery now here  http://johnloguk.smugmug.com/gallery/4562724_EH5v6/1/268904689_tgGam#268904689
