Yates Mill Pond - December 26, 2010
March 12, 2013    Here's a shot of the sign above the entry of the Bucket of Blood Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada.  According to the Saloon's website:  In spite of its sinister name, 'the Bucket of Blood Saloon' gives off the charm of the old time hey-days with its many hanging lamps and mirrors. Memories of a time long ago await the visitor wandering in to the bar for a cold drink in this cool oasis.    "the BUCKET of BLOOD Saloon"-"the Original". This structure constructed in 1876 after the great fire of 1875 which took up to a thousand structures of the town. Most of the towns core buildings were lost or sustained damage,unfortunately the first structure that previously occupied this location, like alot of the other towns buildings of that time was completely destroyed. Though the building you are currently viewing has gone through several renovations, iterations and operations since 1876, it like many of the other Historical buildings throughout Virginia City survive as living history.    The masonry walls of the Old BUCKET predate the great fire of 1875. Shadows of doorways recall a time when enclosed stairs led down to the Boston Saloon. The BUCKET of BLOOD has long served as a local landmark in the center of Virginia City. Until recently no one realized that the Boston Saloon lay under an asphalt cap to the rear of the building.    The discovery of the Boston Saloon location in 1997, together with a subsequent test excavation, demonstrates that the site is rich with artifacts and has national importance. This business stayed at a single location through most of its existence, making it an anomaly at the outset. Defying the odds, remnants of the saloon survive in the archaeological record, escaping 125 years of development and bottle collecting. An asphalt parking lot currently caps the property, which the Comstock Archaeology Center excavated in September 2000. The Center is still completing analysis and cataloguing over the years. Pending funding, one or more exhibits will open at various locations in the future.

This shot has a psuedo HDR filter applied, and I liked the way it enhanced all the wood in the shot.    Have a fantastic day my friends!    Linda

June 4...   Our granddaughter is the sunflower in our family. My web supplier has been very unreliable during the past week. I have signed up with a new, and hopefully a shall be up and running next week. I hope I shall be able to make comments until my connection is restored.
Getting the shot at Horseshoe Bend.  Not my preferred view in which to be photographed.  Since I am the family member who is rarely captured in photos, the reason that I was preserved for posterity in this unflattering position is that I am terrified of heights and, after hiking about 1/2 mile to reach the Horseshoe Bend Overlook, I discovered that the ONLY way to get a shot of the bend in the Colorado River here is to get out to the absolute edge of the sheer cliff dropoff.  No way that I could make myself get out there in a standing position.  Even then, without a fisheye lens, you would not be able to get the whole bend in the picture.  Luckily, I had my fisheye lens.  After walking all around the edge and confirming that they only way I could get a shot of the famous bend was to be on the edge, I lay down and inched myself out so that I could hang my camera over the edge to get some shots.  The shots I got are here: http://fotoeffects.smugmug.com/Landscapes/Northern-Arizona/11896740_iVsC7#842028150_NVySM.  Not fabulous and I'd like to try again on a cloudy day or at sunset.  My hubby, who was holding my other camera, decided to take advantage of me (not for the first time) and took this shot.  I intended to post it right after returning from the trip but other shots kept getting my nod, so I forgot this one until I ran across it this evening in my Northern Arizona gallery.  Hope it gives you a chuckle!  Thanks for the comments on my shot of the milkweed pod and seeds.  Hope your week got off to a good start and that you are finding a few moments to take some shots.
11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann
Near collision.  Not only did the passing teams come perilously close to each other, but the team approaching the camera came close to colliding with the wall of the arena.    DP232-2013  Posted August 20; processed ditto    Calhoun County Fair, Marshall, Michigan.  August 14, 2013    Apologies for not commenting yesterday.  It was another day when internet connection was intermittent or non-existent.  Today doesn't seem to be much better.  If I even get this shot uploaded it will be a major victory.
March 1,2013    Another shot from the car through the windsheild.    In Nevada - almost to Virginia City.  I loved the way the sunlight turned the hills almost golden.    Linda
