July 19, 2014  Paper Abstract
Day 202: Butterfly - Black Swallowtail - July 22    It has been a great few days in terms of finding at least one to photo each day and they have been cooperative.
July 22 - Tall Trees  I love the forest but find it difficult to capture how I see it and what I see in a way that I am satisfied with.  So much depends on the thickness of the forest, what the forest floor is like, and the light - always the light.  Thanks for your comments on my rhododendron  bloom image I posted yesterday!

Monday, July 21, 2014  "CONSIDER THE LILIES"  "Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." ~ Luke 12:27, The Bible (KJV)  SOOC, uncropped, flash fired  At the time of this photograph, this was the only daylily in a flowerbed at a home in our neighborhood. The homeowners in our neighborhood don't mind me taking photos of whatever I deem interesting and photo-op worthy in their yards. At times, they inform me of new flowers or yard décor. I love the deep, rich orange and the ruffle-like look of some of its petals. This daylily's scientific name is Hemerocallis fulva. According to Wikipedia, it is "native to Asia. It is very widely grown as an ornamental plant in temperate climates for its showy flowers and ease of cultivation. It is not related to true lilies, but gets its name from the similarity of the flowers and from the fact that each flower lasts only one day."  Have a marvelous Monday!  ***#10 photo of the day***  (photo taken 6/13/2014)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com

Sunday, July 20, 2014  "YELLOW KING HUMBERTS" (aka Canna Lilies)  "For thou (God) hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy." ~ Psalm 61:3 (The Bible, KJV)  SOOC, uncropped, flash didn't fire   I really like their vibrant, energetic, beautiful, and  gracefully shaped petals. I had to stand on my tip-toes to get this shot.  Have a blessed day!

28.04.10 - Kaleidoscope   When I walk into town I try to plan my route around photo opportunities, indeed I do the same if I drive in too. But this afternoon I was on foot, and on the way home I took a detour through the Arboretum to see what was new. As it happened there were plenty of new flowers in bloom, which gave me the opportunity to grovel around on my stomach to see what outrageous bokeh I could manage to get!   Apologies for any burned out retinas that might be caused by this riot of colour.

Vought F4U-1A Corsair...  HISTORY  In June 1941, the Navy issued the first production contract for the somewhat revised F4U-1 model and the basic design continued in production until January 1953, at which time over 12,800 Corsairs of all models had been built.  One of the basically stock Corsairs still active is F4U-1 Bu No .17799 (civil registration NX83782), which belongs to Planes of Fame Air Museum at Chino Airport in Southern California. It first arrived at San Diego, California in August 1943 and was assigned to a Navy fighter squadron (VF84) in the same year.  In January 1944, the aircraft was reassigned to VBF-14 (a fighter-bomber unit) until being transferred to VBF-98 in February 1945. From the sketchy records available, it appears that this aircraft actually saw combat service in the Pacific with VBF-14 and/or VBF-98. The Corsair was dubbed the "Whistling Death" by the Japanese because of the noise that it made in high-speed flight. Between April and June 1945, Planes of Fame's Corsair served with a carrier air support unit (CASU-33) before being withdrawn from active service on August 31, 1945.  After being sold on the surplus market, 17799 wound up in use as a Hollywood movie prop at the Twentieth Century Fox Studios until it was eventually acquired by Planes of Fame Air Museum in 1970, but did not go on static display at Chino until 1973.  In 1976, Jim Maloney and Steve Hinton restored the Corsair to flying condition in basically a stock F4U-1 configuration. The primary changes to the aircraft it that it uses a Pratt & Whitney R-2800 engine with a single-stage supercharger from a Douglas A-26 Invader bomber in place of the two-stage, two-speed, supercharged R-2800-8 engine that was more common to the early model Corsair fighters. As a result, the restored Corsair is about 700 lbs. lighter than a stock aircraft, allowing it to have a better rate of climb at low altitudes and a shorter take-off roll.  DISTINCTION  Since restoration, the Corsair has taken part in numerous airshows and flown in a variety of Hollywood productions including the Baa Baa Blacksheep television series, Airwolf, Space, an IMAX film and an ABC Wide world of flying video. Planes of Fame's F4U-1A is currently the oldest airworthy Corsair in the world. Experienced combat service during WWII. http://planesoffame.org/  Planes of Fame Air Show, May 3-4, 2014 Chino Airport Chino, CA  Thanks for your views and comments!
