11.21.14  It is wonderful to find historically interesting pictures in the family albums.  Atlanta Georgia circa 1920.  Men--left to right--Pres. Charles A. Callis, Elder George Albert Smith, Elder Joseph Fielding Smith.  My grandparents met while serving missions for the LDS church in Georgia. I'm not sure which grandparent took this picture. I think it was my grandfather.  Charles A. Callis was the mission president for the Southern States. George Albert Smith and Joseph Fielding Smith were both general authorities in the Mormon church--George Albert Smith would be come prophet and President of the church in 1945. Joseph Fielding Smith would become prophet and president in 1970.  One of the projects I had when I moved here was to scan and catalog many of the  old photos in this house. That project is coming along slowly.  As a child (and still as an adult) I love old family pictures and I am constantly asking questions and wanting to know more. This was in with my maternal grandfather's  papers and photos.   One of my areas of training is in photo restoration--the old fashioned way by hand. I'm not too bad correcting aging (etc...) with photo shop. This image is as-is from the scanner. It didn't need much, anyways. I am only taking time to do restoration on the images I want to blow up or print for myself. I shared this on facebook and it was shared six times that I know of--very few people give credit.  This is not my photo, it belongs to my dad. I feel these old photos are meant to be shared, but I'm not going to put a lot of time into them just to have people take them and take credit for them.   My day did improve yesterday and today is a new day. I did feel all of the positive thoughts, prayers,and hugs coming from my friends here. Thank you.
Golden Fields & Blue Mountains October 2008   Taken in Montana, Madison River Valley, just after a storm.
November 20, 2014 - November rain, the lovely view from our porch
1-16: Thursday morning we woke up to thick fog again. It lasted till about noon. I was able to go out on my lunch break and take some shots along the river right after the fog lifted. The fog had frozen to the tree branches and bushes. I was able to get some shots before it all melted.
Roses
Cracked Windows These large hole in Paria Canyon walls are called windows.  The cracked mud on the ground comes during dry seasons.
Rose...  Cal Poly Pomona, CA  I appreciate your views and comments, thanks! Critiques welcome...  20 November 2014
November 15, 2014 - Reflections, Cabo San Lucas  Back to Long beach, CA, end of cruise !
You see these goofy gizmos everywhere on power lines these days.  Am I the only one who thinks they look like birds? Note added Nov. 9:  I knew I could count on you guys.  Several people identified these as having a dual purpose - maintaining spacing between the lines and damping wind vibration.  Thanks, smugmuggers!  DP312-2014  Posted November 8; processed ditto  I thought I'd take a break from posting shots of fall foliage, if only for a day, though not a break from processing shots of it.

Oscar having his desert; my dead sweet peas!!  He eats all over the neighborhood and finishes on our back deck, or vice-versa.. He's getting FAT! 05/11/14  I'm not feeling well these days . Will comment later..love xxxxx
If it looks like winter, and it feels like winter, it IS winter.  Duh! (My version of the 'Duck' test:  If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck . . .  You know the rest.)  DP319-2014  Posted November 15; processed ditto Yesterday was cold, windy, and spitting snow.  It has been cold enough for long enough that ice is now forming on ponds and along calm stretches of the river.  The last leaf falls, from alders and sweet gum trees in this case, got trapped in the pebbly ice at the edge of Furstenburg Lagoon, and made a nice subject for the transition from fall into winter.  Taken November 14 at Gallup Park, Ann Arbor  Title:  Passing the 'Duh!' Test  Big thanks to all who left kind comments to my post for yesterday of the red 'planet'.  They warmed my heart.
Colorful Serenity  Nov 20  I've photographed this view of Jordan lake during the summer many times, featuring lush green trees and boats zooming through the waterway.  However, I love  this calm view with the colorful trees ushering in the fall season.
November 19, 2014  Faerie Wings  * This is one of my entries for our camera club competition, themed "Fairy Tales".
For some reason the cracks between the bricks in our front walk are always cooler than the bricks themselves, even though the cracks (dirt filled) are darker than the bricks.  If the temperature of the surface is near the freezing level, there can be a preferential build-up of snow in the cracks.  The loop and miscellaneous blobs may have been from snow dropping off of overhanging limbs.  DP324-2014  Posted Thursday, November 20; processed ditto We have a little more snow on the ground now, but nothing like what got dumped on parts of western New York state.  Nor will our temperatures rebound into the 50s and 60s as it is expected to do there.  We got lucky.  It helps to live upwind rather than downwind of one of the Great Lakes.

Railroad Tunnel Trail  View of the amazing tunnel cut through the mountains to bring in equipment for the construction of the Hoover Dam.    Fantastic hike!
