Sept.1. I made this for the Labor Day party, but that's not cake under there, it's a seedless watermelon.
9/1/14 - Famous Dave's Barbecue logo; I shot this for Rick's challenge and decided to use the Serta sheep, but I think this is a pretty neat logo nonetheless.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the Serta sheep.  I was surprised how many of you knew it.  Like many of you, I think those sheep are awfully cute!  I really enjoyed all the logos; I think we all closed out Rick's challenge with a bang!  What's next?  Billiejean and, I think, Godschild had proposed doing an abstract challenge.  Anyone up for that?
September 1, 2014  I'd love to see what is at the end of this road.

Labor Day 2014...  Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.  Labor Day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first parade in New York City. After the Haymarket Massacre, which occurred in Chicago on May 4, 1886, U.S. President Grover Cleveland feared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the affair. Thus, in 1887, it was established as an official holiday in September to support the Labor Day that the Knights favored.  The equivalent holiday in Canada, Labour Day, is also celebrated on the first Monday of September. In many other countries (more than 80 worldwide), "Labour Day" is synonymous with, or linked with, International Workers' Day, which occurs on May 1.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labor_Day  Thanks for your views and comments!  1 September 2014
I played around with another close-up of the center of a red hibiscus blossom to produce today's post.  This is basically a color inversion and an orientation inversion.  Hence the title.  I did add a couple of addtional minor tweaks, including resizing it expanding the horizontal dimension relative to the vertical.  Now it looks like some bizarre marine organism ... to me, anyway.

September 1, 2014 Happy September!  Where did August go?   We enjoyed a beautiful morning on Lake Fork Saturday.    Thank you for your comments on my Pegasus trademark post yesterday.  There were some fun TM's in this challenge.  Thank you for proposing it Rick.  Have an amazing day Jeanne
Monday, September 1, 2014 (Labor Day)  "PATRIOTIC STAR BURSTS"  "You should never be so involved with your position/job that when the position is gone your entire self image is gone with it.” ~ General Colin Luther Powell    SOOC, uncropped, 35mm lens  September, already? Gosh, time is flying (use of personification). It seems like only yesterday that I saw school buses transporting children on the first day of school in August.

September 1, 2014  I hope everyone is off work & enjoying a much needed day of play or rest.  I certainly am!  I've missed you all very much, and plan to start posting again.  Our 10 day vacation was glorious, and we saw some stunning country on our explorations from Salt Lake City to Phoenix.  As many of you know, Bill and I like to explore the small highways, and back roads (yes, many are dirt or gravel) and we avoid major Interstates as much as possible.    On our first day, we left Salt Lake City and headed out to the east to our first night near Altamont, Utah.  I had plotted a backroad's trip for us and about half way there, one of the roads that I'd planned for us to take (Ute 7) was dirt (no problem), but it was on the reservation.  We encountered this sign and were a bit disappointed because to back track would have put us hours past our appointed time to arrive at the LC Ranch cabin near Altamont.  So we took a deep breath, and hauled it through the reservation on the dirt road.  Thankfully, we didn't meet another car, nor run into any issues.  It was a beautiful drive through the Unitah & Ouray Indian reservation.  “We must be willing to fail and to appreciate the truth that often "Life is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be lived.”  ― M. Scott Peck  Have a great day my friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
09-01-2014 "Roses Still Blooming"  Roses always make me happy!  Thank you so very much for your comments on my symbol yesterday.  I was surprised that more didn't recognize it.  There were many during the challenge I didn't recognize and should have after viewing the link.  It was a fun challenge and many thanks to Rick for this challenge.  What's next?  Happy Labor Day! Donna
09.01.14  YELLOW.  It is a color that kind of SHOUTS at you.  Since the logo/branding challenge is over, have we discussed doing another one and, if so,  what it would be?  I have a suggestion for, at least two weeks in September and October, in fact.... I am challenging you all today to two color challenges.  September is prostate cancer month and the color is BLUE. I am challenging all of you to post a blue image on Sunday, Sept/ 28th to support prostate cancer. I will post reminders throughout the month.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The color is pink. I've challenged everyone to post pink one Sunday in October for several years now and this year it is even more important to me to do this. I am challenging all of you to post something PINK on Sunday, Oct.26th. I will continue to post reminders.  I have also decided that I will post an image that is predominately one color every Sunday between now and the end of October. You are all welcome to join me.   Thanks. Tina
