22.3.08 - Happy Easter! We actually had some snow showers today, but none of it settled so no snowy DP today. I had to go into town, and on the way back decided to dodge a particularly nasty snow shower by going into the cathedral. I timed it just right for a guided roof tour, and ended up staying for nearly two hours. This isn't my most innovative or quirky shot of the cathedral, but it does show its gothic majesty off best. I can never get my head round the fact that this was all built by hand; no scaffolding, no cranes, no laser range finders, just blood and sweat. I took over 80 photos today(!), so some of them will make it to other galleries when I get chance. I'll probably start a separate gallery for Cathedral interiors, and there were some stunning views from the roof! Happy Easter..........

April 28    Yes....I missed uploading a DP for yesterday!  By the time we finished that 24 hrs. of frivilous fun in the desert area near Ridgecrest (California), I was too tired to tend to my DP; I'm admitting it!!   Had another outstanding day today; ending our trip by arriving in our own little hometown at sunset!  This is what we were watching while driving the last couple of miles down the highway!  SPECTACULAR!!  What a "welcome home"!   Took the first available offramp in order to catch this shot!!  (Tough choice, though!  This was right after a double rainbow which we also pulled over for!!)    We did spend some discussion as to how difficult it was going to be to choose a DP for yesterday, and today!!  Over the next several days, I will be using shots from this trip as DP's, as I add photos to the gallery.

The Eyes  Thu. November 6, 2008 (Day 206)    I'm still sorting some files from  photo shoot last weekend, and I think this one deserve the spot.     I took some pics today but not too crazy about them.   They only deserve to be in the  Alternate gallery.    Hmm... I need a good rest tonight. Have a good evening all.
12-14: Saturday evening we went to the 16th street mall in Denver. On the way home we stopped to look at the lights on the Denver City and County Building. With this lens I had to go behind some trees to get the whole building. Also, unfortunately, I didn't have my tripod, so it didn't turn out as good as it could have.

January 7, 2012  This shot was taken just after sundown somewhere along the Mississippi coast of the Gulf of Mexico.  We had stopped to walk on the beautiful white-sand beaches and take some photos.  Just as we left, we stopped at a nearby marina to put gas in the car and I couldn't resist taking this photo.  Frame added in Picnik.  I hope you enjoy this tranquil setting captured in this photo - it's going to be one of my favorites from our recent vacation.  Check it out in X3 for all the color, reflections and details.  Thanks for your comments!!!  Have a fabulous weekend!!!  Linda

October 17, 2013  As I've said before, I love Aspen trees.  I would have loved to have been in Colorado at the time of their leaves turning that brilliant, golden yellow color.  Nevertheless, I enjoyed them in their late summer stage too.  I loved that this stand was so thick & I could see deep into their world and find their unique markings far from the front set of trees.  This thick stand of Aspens brought to mind many of Bev Doolittle's prints.  I am a big fan of Bev Doolittle.  This shot reminded me most of her "Sacred Ground" print.  Also, the triptych "Two More Indian Horses" (which hangs in my living room).  I would highly recommend that you google her Sacred Ground Print, and I think you'll see why this shot put me in mind of that piece of art.  Have a strong and steady day!  Linda
18.02.10 - Blowin' in the Wind  When I went out this evening it was just starting to snow, but it never got beyond the sleety stage. After the last 2 nights in town and round the Uni, I decided to cut my losses and go back to the Cathedral, which is a lot nearer anyway. This is along the south side, and is hopefully a new view for most of you. It was very difficult conditions for photography, the wind swirling in every direction, driving the sleet into every nook and cranny. I like the way the floodlights catch the sleet, and the car lights reflecting in the wet cobbles add something too.
"Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last. Luke 23:46

3rd year Pic 075 - Oct 08 2010  Glasses     BEST SEEN IN LARGE SIZE  While having lunch at Paantya, a multi-cuisine restaurant at Shiv Nivas palace, I noticed the glasses on the next table... they reflected the ground and buidlings one floor below.     Required quite a bit of 'cleaning' as it was raining and the window was splattered with drops.      http://www.eternalmewar.in/User/Travel/Hotels/Grand_Heritage/Shiv_Niwas/index.aspx
Monday, May 16, 2011  "442 CUTLASS OLDSMOBILE" (The Metamorphosis)  "It allows you to say things that sound very dramatic and get away with it. If you had characters in modern fiction say the same things as they're driving down the street in an Oldsmobile, they'd sound ludicrous." ~ Terry Goodkind  Slight pp; uncropped  Here's another Lgood inspired automobile capture. This cobalt blue baby was one of my hubby's favorites in the show. Unfortunately, there was not an information card, but while we were at the car show, my hubby (who loves antique cars) informed me that this is a "442 Cutlass Olds." He also stated that the chrome on the rear bumper, in all likelihood, has been redone. You can see a glimpse of my black / white animal print jacket and red cape in the bumper. There was a chilly breeze and the temps had dropped to mid 50s. Yes, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped.   The original can be viewed here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/16609546_tdrqK#1274849706_xFHRmdP  Also, I did some research and according to Wikipedia, "The Oldsmobile 442 (pronounced four-four-two) was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. It was introduced as an option package for F-85 and Cutlass models sold in the United States beginning with the 1964 model year. It became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971, then reverted to an option through the mid-1970s. Oldsmobile revived the name in the 1980s on the rear-wheel drive Cutlass Supreme and early 1990s as an option package for the new front-wheel drive Cutlass." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_442)  Furthermore, I am overwhelmingly and humbly appreciative of your comments on yesterday's "Antique Chevy." It landed in the #2 spot.   Congrats to my friend sharkbayte whose "Clouds" pic was #1.

11/23/10 - Tree in the Fog  I have been watching and studying this tree for a couple of years now.  Whenever there is fog, it seems to stand out from the backdrop...a solitary, lonely figure.  I finally made up  my mind yesterday to figure out where to park the car to get out to take a picture...not a small feat.  I do try to stay safe, but this location is more precarious than some.  Most days I am joyful as I spend time with the kids.  My life is full of laughter and color; it's vibrant and full of life like many of my pictures.  But some days at least deep inside it is like this too.  I guess a bit of that side is slipping through today.  I stopped to think about my mother for a few minutes when I took this.  She was involved in a horrible traffic accident with a tractor trailer on a foggy morning in November just before Thanksgiving in 1985.  For me, the fog will always be more than just the fog.  Back to bright and cheery tomorrow I promise...  Thanks for your comments on Johnny and the Jon boat.  It was as serene out there as you thought.  Little wind, warm sun on our skin, very few boats out on the lake...a calming hour without the chaos of life.  HAGD, Maryann
