Friday, August 22, 2014  "BROMELIADS"  "Don't worry and don't be in a hurry. Those who walk with God always reach their destination on time and in His time. A delay is not a denial." ~ God's Child (Me)  SOOC, uncropped; 35mm lens; flash fired  "Bromeliads are members of a plant family known as Bromeliaceae (bro-meh-lee-AH-say-eye). The family contains over 3000 described species in approximately 56 genera. The most well known bromeliad is the pineapple. The family contains a wide range of plants including some very un-pineapple like members such as Spanish Moss (which is neither Spanish nor a moss). Other members resemble aloes or yuccas while still others look like green, leafy grasses."  "In general, they are inexpensive, easy to grow, require very little care, and reward the grower with brilliant, long lasting blooms and ornamental foliage. They come in a wide range of sizes from tiny miniatures to giants. They can be grown indoors in cooler climates and can also be used outdoors where temperatures stay above freezing."  ~ Reprinted text from here: http://www.bsi.org/brom_info/what.html  Oh Happy Friday!

Late day light and shadows  PLEASE NOTE: I'm thinking seriously about quitting the dailies because of the blatant manipulation of the ratings by one of the participants. Why do I care?  This behaviour shows a lack of respect for fellow smugmuggers, and a disregard of the rules of fair play.

Meet the Caladium family, caught  before drying out from the indoor rain at the conservatory. Wikipedia says there are now 1000 known cultivars of Caladium bicolor plants.  IHNC which of the 1000 this is.  DP234-2014  Posted August 22; processed ditto Just a quick grab and process from a batch I took yesterday at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.  Too hot, humid, and threatening (storms) to go far afield.  Tropical House of the Conservatory Taken August 21, 2014 Title:  Papa Leaf, Mama Leaf, and Baby Leaf

21.08.14 - Icons  Well I finally got to photograph the last two surviving Lancaster bombers together over Lincoln, and to add to the occasion the last surviving Vulcan led the formation. They were joined by a Hawk trainer on the left here. This is actually a composite, I took the wide shot of the city under that dramatic sky, and then switched to a longer lens to get closer shots of the aircraft. As it happens the formation was quite wide and this is a realistic representation of what we saw.  The Canadian Lancaster "Vera" is on the right as you look, and I'm hoping to photograph them together again before she returns across the Atlantic in September.

I know you might be getting sick of my beach shots but I'll explain this one.  Gods Child: see the little building with wedding party attire in the lighthouse canteen.  Flowers growing in the grassy areas beside the roadway.  Beach lovers ,all intent on enjoying the water. The man with dog had two little guys but one loved to swim to fetch his stick!    Will try to get out and get some different flowers tomorrow! It's HOT!   22/08/2014
"Last Days of Summer" Thursday was doing my walk and notice the park was quite empty. Just saw two small boys fishing. Baseball fields were empty no kids playing. I know school starts Monday.
August 22, 2014  If you ever make it to Lancaster or any Amish/Mennonite area, find your way to a chicken BBQ, you will not be disappointed.
August 22, 2014 Detail from the high (main) altar of St Fidelis Basilica 'Cathedral of the Plains"  Victoria, KS  "The high altar is adorned with a large pedestal on either side, on which stand the statues of St. Peter and St. Paul.  Each pedestal bears a throne which extends above the statue capped with a cupola matching the design of the altar.  In the center of the altar is a large oil painting which depicts the martyrdom of St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen, which occurred in 1622.  He was murdered by the Calvinists who opposed his teachings of the Catholic faith.  This painting was painted in Innsbruck, Austria.  It was installed with the altar in the old church in 1892 at a cost of $109.  In the arch above the altar is a gold mosaic painting which adds additional beauty and may be well called a halo signifying the sacredness of the altar."   "The high altar and the two large pedestals were manufactured by the Schroeder Brothers in Cincinnati, Ohio.  The altar and pedestals were installed in 1892 in the old church and upon completion of the new church were transferred into the new church.   The cost of the high altar amounted to $900 plus $109 freight." http://stfidelischurch.com/History/StFidelisChurch/ThePresentChurch/tabid/4438/Default.aspx  Thank you for kind comments yesterday!  The Cathedral has a seating capacity of 1100,  the population of Victoria, Kansas is 1208.    Have a happy Friday! Jeanne
