Sunday, March 1, 2015  "CELTIC EMERALD PERSIAN PAIR"  "I love to juxtapose the man-made and the natural to make people wonder and ask, Are they man-made or did they come from nature? That's a very important part of my work." ~ Dale Chihuly  My fourth and final submission for Judy Horton's (aka fotoeffects) "Still Life" Challenge (week 4 of 4)  "With their exotic, fluid shapes, Dale Chihuly's Persians swirl with kinetic energy, mimicking ancient vessels or blending into a natural landscape almost seamlessly. Celtic Emerald Persian Pair blazes with bright and vibrant color. Measuring approximately eleven inches across, the larger piece is blown through, bright green in the center to a dark, shadowy green along the edge, accented by a golden yellow lip wrap. Echoing these same colors, a smaller, coiling element rests inside looking as if it were a live garden creature reaching out to the viewer. Winding around both elements, dark and light green body wraps create a virtual glow." ~ Reprinted text from here: http://www.chihulyworkshop.com/celtic-emerald-persian-pair.html  My complete gallery of "The Gallery: Featuring Dale Chihuly" 2013 is here:  http://godschild.smugmug.com/ArtScape-1/Dale-Chihulys-Art-at-Gallery/i-tft5MVG  Thanks for proposing this challenge, Judy; I enjoyed it. The time-frame was perfect, also (not excessively lengthy).  Have a great start to a new month. I can't believe March is here already.

March 1, 2015  I was desperate for a shot for the final Sunday of Judy's Still Life Challenge, and knowing that I wouldn't be able to work on staging one during the past week, last Sunday I just snapped this shot of my desk.  It's a still life of sorts.   Obviously you can see my computer screen with Smug Mug on, - and Judy's strawberry still life, then there's  my iPad sitting on top of my photo printer - I'm a Nikon girl, but my Canon photo printer is the best.  And last, but not least you can see my flatbed scanner on top of the desk.  The top of the desk holds many fun things that are special to me.    What's not as easy to see is the magazine "Shutterbug" that's laying in front of the printer,  and then there's also a Photoshop CS5 for Dummies book on one of the shelves (I'm still a dummy) and a small portion of my collection of roosters and sunflowers.  Some day I'm going to get around to reading the Photoshop for Dummies book, as I am a neophyte when it comes to Photoshop, and would like to get more knowledge.  Ah, well.....it's on the list.  Corny?  Yep, but it's where I process photos and spend a lot of time.  Sorry it's such a lame still life..     Have a fun day today my friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
28.02.15 - Another Photo Walk Collage  Some more shots from Friday evening. Again there are some familiar views and some new ones. Hope I'm not boring anyone with these :)
This ladder to success REQUIRES a  shovel. Steel rungs with paint spatters looks like a well used one. Last large,  snow storm  dropped 35 cm on us.  The coldest February  since 1938. omg  -16 right now,,,              28/02/15

My final still life depicting personal interests involves gear for getting out and walking the trails, enjoying nature.  Naturally camera equipment would be part of my gear.  That goes without saying.  And a bottle of water.  Which guidebooks I might have along with me, either on the trail, or back at the car, depends very much on location and time of year.  In addition to, or instead of the guides for birds and wildflowers, I might have guides for trees, insects, butterflies, dragonflies, fungi, ferns, or even clouds.  DP060-2015  Posted Sunday, March 1; processed Feb. 28 from photo taken ditto The bookmarks you see in the field guides are the ones that were actually in those guides when I pulled them off the shelf, plus a bunch more that I hid in the pages to keep the scene from getting too messy.  Some will note that there are bookmarks from the now defunct Borders, dating from that company's early days, when it started in Ann Arbor as a single locally owned store calling itself Borders Book Shop.  I don't throw bookmarks away until they are literally falling apart.  Title:  Trail Essentials - Still Life Challenge Week 4
October 22, 2012    "No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man." ~ Heraclitus     You've seen many shots from our vacation into Yellowstone and beyond of the Snake River.  This is a wonderful scenic overlook of the beautiful Snake in Iowa.  We loved seeing the many faces of this River on our trip, and except for the fly fishing trip, and maybe the white water rafting trips we took on the Snake, this is probably my next favorite view of this lovely river.    Life and work is crazy busy for me, and as I'm sure many of the regular posters on the Daily Community have noticed - I've been very, very remiss on my comments.  For that I am sad, but there's just not been enough hours in the days to do so.  Even this weekend, was jammed full, with no time to comment.  My sincere apologies.  I have a lot of work ahead, and several weeks of travel coming up over the next 6 weeks.     Because of that - I'm going to have to take a break from posting and commenting on the Daily's as often as normal.  I will miss seeing all your wonderful shots, and I will miss sharing mine too - but life is just too full (and good) right now, so I have to be gone for awhile.    Take care my friends, know that I care about you & love your work.  I'll be back sometime soon.    Have a "rolling on the river" sort of day today my friends!    Linda
October 16 ... The start of a yacht race.  Our worst competitor (1058) a little behind us, and he stayed there
October 10, 2012    "To be selected was an honor, and in respect of the family member chosen to run, families held feasts and gave away prized beaver coats, quilled tobacco bags and buffalo hides."  ~ Dennis Banks     We saw several fairly large buffalo herds while in Yellowstone National Park.  And each time we and everyone else stopped to watch them, take photos and enjoy them.  Notice the baby running across the field.    Headed back home to Dallas today.  Bill has rotator cuff surgery in the morning, wish him luck for a speedy recovery.    Will catch up on comments (hopefully) in the next few days.    Have a fantastic day today my friends!    Linda
