When that pink hits your eye Like a bubble gum pie -  That's hibiscus!  When the blooms seems to shine 'cause the weather is fine - That's hibiscus.  DP239-2014  Posted August 27; processed  ditto. I lost internet service during a period of severe thunderstorms yesterday afternoon, before I had left any comments for the day, and only got it back this morning.  So apologies for not responding to all the lovely comments left yesterday for my own shot.  You have to be pretty old to recognize my lame parody of the tune from the 1950's, 'That's Amore', made popular by Dean Martin (originial lyrics here, for example:  http://www.metrolyrics.com/thats-amore-lyrics-dean-martin.html)  Lots of hibiscus are in bloom around town - almost like a second season of blooms, but none were any larger than these, which were the size of salad plates, fully 8-9 inches across.

Mother Nature's fantasia  Hoodoos with white cap stones, Inspiration Point, Bryce Canyon, Utah.  The white rock (cap stone) is harder than the underlying red sandstone, so it protects the underlying rock from erosion.  Another close-up of the hoodoos, and the remainder of the White Pocket images, can be seen here: http://goo.gl/yWR7T6  28/08/14 www.allenfotowild.com

8/28/14 - Prickly poppies  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the Mustang logo.  I have quite a few shots of Mustang logos and each is a bit different.  I think it was an inspired idea of Ford's to create this logo.
27.08.14 - Sleep  I did some more experimenting with matching stills from the film with quotes from Robert Crowder's letters from the Front to produce publicity postcards for Tell Them of Us yesterday. I've been struggling with a bad back since the weekend and have had to cancel some work this week. It is also difficult sitting at the computer for any length of time, but I have to be fit enough for tomorrow and Saturday as both are big filming days. As the filming draws to a close we are moving onto publicity material and planning film showings etc, it is all fascinating and keeps the creative juices flowing :)
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.
Thursday, August 28, 2014  "A QUIET MAN vs A QUIET WOMAN"  “Few people make sound or sustainable decisions in an atmosphere of chaos. The more serious the situation, usually accompanied by a deadline, the more likely everyone will get excited and bounce around like water on a hot skillet. At those times I try to establish a calm zone but retain a sense of urgency. Calmness protects order, ensures that we consider all the possibilities, restores order when it breaks down, and keeps people from shouting over each other. You are in a storm. The captain must steady the ship, watch all the gauges, listen to all the department heads, and steer through it. If the leader loses his head, confidence in him will be lost and the glue that holds the team together will start to give way. So assess the situation, move fast, be decisive, but remain calm and never let them see you sweat.” ~ General Colin Luther Powell, excerpt from "It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership"  Remember that ".......in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength." ~ Isaiah 30:15 (The Bible, KJV)  and another thought.........  “He who angers you, conquers you.” ~ Elizabeth Kenny  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday!

AUG 27 2014 It's a beautiful morning
Getting dark when I took this but Queen Ann's Lace is still beautiful!!!!!!!   Post for 28/08/2014
December 6, 2010    Hello everyone - I didn't expect to be posting tonight, or this week at all because I was scheduled to be in Northern California all week; however, due to an unforeseen event, the trip was cancelled and so I am home this week, and the NoCal trip will be rescheduled sometime next year.  I'm home  and happy!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's nice to be home after all my travels over the last several weeks.  Road warriers need to restore the batteries at home some, and that's what I'm doing!!!!  YAY!    This is a  custom car and I don't know what it started life as, but it was a real beauty.  The rainbow colored paint was amazing.  As you walked around the car it would change in color from black to dark midnight blue then to medium blue  and then almost a tourquoise color, then it would shift again to a light maroon and a red.  There were several other color changes in between too.  It's hard to describe all the color variations.  It was at a car show and as you can see it was sprinkling rain and I felt sorry for the owners who were trying to keep their cars wiped down and dry.  I liked the rain drops on the car and the reflection of the other car beside it.  The beauty of the colors are best viewed in X3    Have a great evening Smugmuggers.    Linda
