01-31-2015 - Sculpture at Palisade, CO.     -    Rusty's Dream by Lyle Nichols       I thought this was hilarious so I grabbed a shot so you all could have a laugh at my fun shot too…       Link to Photo  Without Frame
The weaver  In a small ethnic Miao village I was invited into a home and taken down the stairs into a dark smoky basement room where a woman was weaving by the light coming through a dirty window.  Biasha Miao ethnic village, Guizhou Province, China  Photographing people indoors in China was a challenge because often there was no light but that which came from a small window.  I didn't want to use flash light since it can give an artificial look to the photos, so started experimenting with 'Rembrandt' style lighting using ambient light from the natural sources. This resulted in a more dramatic lighting than could be achieved using on-camera flash.  Other photos where I experiment with lighting can be seen here: http://goo.gl/Z8W6nW  31/01/15 www.allenfotowild.com
Striking a pose...digging for some more color...and I found it! This was taken on a trip to the Tyler Zoo this past summer for my grandsons first birthday!
1/31/15 - Grass seedheads weighed down by successive waves of hoarfrost, snow, and ice crystals  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the night snowfall.  Sounds like a lot of us are willing to try a still life challenge.  I didn't really mean to imply that we should try to create an "Old Master" still life.  I think anything really would qualify so long as it is some kind of setup.  Why don't we begin it a week from Sunday and do it for four weeks.  Keep it as siimple or complicated as you like.  Hopefully, a lot of us will participate.
January 31, 2015  This shot was taken at one of my favorite locations to shoot in Las Vegas - Fremont Street.  It's old Vegas at it's "new" best.  Lots to see, lots of street performers, music, crowds and neon for as far as the eye can see.  Have a "Lucky" day today my friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
30.01.15 - Under the Horsehead Nebula  This composite of Lincoln under the Horsehead Nebula was done to order after my earlier ones stirred up some interest on Twitter. I also experimented with the reflection in the water, complete with ripples. I'm loving doing these, but the question keeps popping up in my head about whether we'd be able to see such things in our night skies with all the light pollution from the city? There are few places in the UK where you can see the Milky Way these days, I find it very sad

This is a different view of the park surroundings from my previous post (DP029-2015, http://smu.gs/1Dqgaov  ).  The aiming point is to the left (north) of the previous view, i.e. the London Eye is out of frame to the right.  One thing I especially liked about this view is the great pile of buildings rising up behind the Parade.  I couldn't identify most of them conclusively, but I'm pretty sure the Old War Office, on Whitehall, makes up part of the skyline.  DP031-2015  Posted Saturday, January 31; processed ditto. Two more days 'til Groundhog Day.  Can you stand it?  The wait?  Taken Sunday, August 26, 2007; St. James Park, London, UK  Title:  Horse Guards Parade Seen from St. James Park, London, UK  Intent:  Travel content; landscape composition
The interior of a 1956 Mercedes 300SL  Gullwing, The overall design of this car is beautiful with the exception of the width and height of the door sills. The degree of difficulty entering either side, particularly for a female wearing a skirt, must have been incredible.
Winter walk down my winter road ... 01.31.15
01.31.15  Jennifer had fun reading all of these bumper stickers.  Each person who hosts Jennifer gives her some BLING! (She wants more!) A lot of her BLING! represents where she has been, but the BLING! can also represent  who the Host is  and  how they think or something representing news and events from around the world or it could just be something the Host found in their jewelry box or at a thrift store, etc.... the thought the bumper stickers, with all of their  messages, were a bit like that.   I am still looking for people to Host Jennifer. If you are interested, please contact me. I am hoping to keep her going  until the end of March 2016 and for her to visit, at least, 30 more places.   Thanks for your comments on yesterday's image of Jennifer.  The statue she was hanging on is of a boy and a girl and the boy is pointing to the American flag.
Jan.31. Touch of Winter.
Saturday, January 31, 2015  NFL's "LARRY FITZGERALD'S ESTATE"  "My mother was a great inspiration to me to always do my best. My father has always been my mentor and friend. They taught me the basic principle that guides most all that I do: faith, focus, finish." ~ Larry Fitzgerald  Built in 2001 ~ 6,837 sq. ft. ~ Situated on 2 acres ~ 7 bedrooms ~ 8 bathrooms    According to Wikipedia, "Larry Darnell Fitzgerald, Jr. (born August 31, 1983) is an American football wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Pittsburgh, and earned unanimous All-American honors. The Arizona Cardinals chose Fitzgerald with the third overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, and he has played his entire professional career for the team."  "He has been selected for the Pro Bowl seven times, and currently ranks fifth all-time in NFL history in receiving yards per game for a career (76.0 yards per game), behind Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson, Torry Holt, and Marvin Harrison. On November 24, 2013, at 30 years and 85 days of age, he became the youngest NFL receiver to reach 11,000 career receiving yards, surpassing the previous record-holder, Randy Moss. He agreed to an eight-year, $120 million contract extension on August 20, 2011.[1]" ~ Reprinted text from here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Fitzgerald  Larry Fitzgerald's official website is here:  http://www.larryfitzgerald.com  Have a great "Super Bowl" weekend.
