5/25/15 - A huge wind turbine blade, which is being transported to a John Deere wind farm in Gruber, TX.  I took this years ago but when Linda mentioned the plant near her home that makes these, I thought that you all might like to see one of these on a truck.  We were actually traveling in the Texas panhandle and were filling up with gas when three of these went by.  We got in the car and raced ahead so that we could pass them and I could get out and take shots as they drove by, but just a bit ahead all three of them had pulled into an empty lot to check that things were ok.  I put on my fish eye lens because I wanted to exaggerate the proportions, so this looks a bit longer than it really appeared, but it was huge.  I also was able to photograph a truck transporting one of the bases a year or so later.  On our recent trip to Texas, we passed a wind farm being constructed.  The bases were all in place but the blades were lying next to each one waiting to be installed.  We are seeing wind farms more and more, but it is often difficult to get a good pov for photos.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the three wind turbines.
February 4... In Beijing my wife and I made a visit to high-school  #14 which is a School for Chinese who can afford to give their children the best education money can buy. In the music class I saw this flute-player, so devoted to her music that she did not notice us.

The variegation in light on these hydrangea blossoms caught my eye, more so probably than would full sunlight or uniform shade have done.  Several more shots taken at the same time can be seen starting here:  http://smu.gs/1HoB9Z9  DP143-2015  Posted Saturday, May 23  Taken May 20, 2015 Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ann Arbor  Title:  Hydrangea in dappled sunlight
Big Fish: (One more IPhone shot) - This is the final shot of my son's day of baseball and fishing. We fished for about 5 hours last Saturday. About 4 1/2 into our fishing it became apparent to me that I was getting out fished by 6 year old with a bobber and a Spider Man fishing reel. He caught 5 fish, 2 trees and my shirt. (My little fishing hole behind my office was picked clean by 6 guys who were catching and keeping everything the caught - it was terrible) - We decided to pack it up and move to another spot down the street. 3 casts later and this beast hit my lure and hard!! I caught one fish but it was a doozie!!!  Happy Hump Day!!!

Cooling off  Capybara pair cooling off in the Rio Cuiaba, Pantanal, Brazil.  I've always found there to be something quite appealing about capybaras, the world's largest rodents, and liked this male (on left) and female pair sitting placidly in the water by the edge of the river.  Other photos of Pantanal wildlife can be seen here: http://goo.gl/JcZRBH  22/05/15 www.allenfotowild.com
January 14.   This is a 100 year old summerhouse in the dunes just 100 m. from the beach. I shot it just before sunset in order to get the glow in the windows and the dark BG. The foreground was darkened in order to draw all attention to this well-preserved house  .

The bases were all in place but the blades were lying next to each one waiting to be installed. We are seeing wind farms more and more, but it is often difficult to get a good pov for photos.

Thanks for your comments on my shot of the three wind turbines.
