A follow up shot to April 13, this shot of Shofuso  -  Japanese House and Garden in Philadelphia  was taken yesterday. The trees have finally bloomed.
Can you figure it out?  DP107-2014  Posted April 17; processed ditto  Even at highest zoom in Photoshop I can't see any connection between the two small tilted icicles and the roof line.  Yet all the icicles in the shot were stationary when I took it.  Unless there was a temporary point of fusion between the larger of the 'floating' icicles and the large one it seems to intersect with, I don't see what was supporting it.  I've cropped the relevant section of the top portion of the icicles, enlarged it, and posted it here (http://smu.gs/1l61uGl) to make it easier to see what is going on.  I tried adding that as an inset to this shot, but it disfigured it so, covering up too much of the scene, that I decided to make it a separate post in my 'Icicle Mania' gallery.  Taken April 16, 2014 (Title:  No Visible Means of Support)  Many thanks to those of you who found my late posts of the past few days and left comments.  Much appreciated.

Thursday, April 17, 2014  "CYPRESS PRESERVE"  "The art of progress is to preserve order amid change and to preserve change amid order." ~ Alfred North Whitehead  SOOC, uncropped, flash fired, photographed at 6:05 p.m. (Central Time Zone)  Thanks for your comments on my "Sassy and Azaleas" photo yesterday; it was a pleasure to share the #3 spot with Suzanne (aka DreamCatcherPhotography) - we each had 23 comments at the end of the day on our photos. Congrats to Harsh (aka Hershey) whose image was a well-deserved #1 and Judy (aka fotoeffects), whose image was #2.  "Popular among photographers, birders, and joggers, this site's three ancient groves of cypress don't mind a little extra water. Growing from a long, narrow slough, or wetland depression, these cypress brakes enjoy wet feet. Purchased in 1940, the garden club continues to improve the site with new boardwalks, an outdoor classroom pavilion, walking trails, and informative signs. Here among this 16 acre tract in the city, it's no surprise to see deer, turkeys and alligators in their natural habitat." ~ Reprinted text from here: http://www.scenicusa.net/050712.html  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday!

Pannonian Mood This too is Austria.  "Pannonia" is a loosely defined term (based on a Roman provincial name) that defines parts of eastern Austria and western Hungary.  As the name implies, it is flat.  The land, with several small lakes and one big one, is home to a national park, lots of vineyards, and other agriculture.  It is warmer and dryer than the rest of Austria.
April 17, 2014  Another drive by shot from Sunday’s Washington DC visit.  I wasn’t happy with the colors or the clarity of this photo so I thought I give it a shot in topaz…this is how it ended up.    First in War, First in Peace, First in the Hearts of his Countrymen Built to honor George Washington, the United States' first president, the 555-foot marble obelisk towers over Washington, D.C.  On Tuesday, August 23, 2011, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake, occurred 84 miles southwest of Washington, D.C., damaging the Washington Monument.  The National Park Service says the Washington Monument will reopen to visitors May 12 after being closed for nearly three years.  http://www.nps.gov/wamo/parknews/newsreleases.htm

April 17.  I'm constantly chasing the squirrels away from my bird feeders and sometimes you just have to take their picture.
April 17. 2014  This is one of the pieces of art at the SCI show in Vegas, that I LOVED!!!  The artist is Stefano Cecchini.  I've featured some of his paintings in past year's shots from SCI.  According to www.grandbohemiangallery.com:  Stefano Cecchini was born in Rimini, Italy on May 5, 1957. After graduating from the University of Bologna with a degree in political science, Stefano Cecchini followed his natural inclination and his passion by choosing painting as his career.  In November 1984 Cecchini collaborated with director Federico Fellini to paint scenery for the film Fred and Ginger. His work on the film took him to Rome and then Milan. While in Milan, Italy, he began to teach art at the European Institute of Design.  Cecchini has also worked with the prestigious Immagini Agency in Rimini, Italy as an illustrator and has painted some of the most important public advertising campaigns to date.   Stefano made his debut in the United States in 2003 as a featured artist at the American Chapter of Safari Club International, where he has since donated for auction more than a half a dozen paintings and has appeared as the cover artist of Safari Magazine three times.  As an accomplished artist, Stefano Cecchini enjoys painting luxury cars, exotic portraits and large-scale images of wildlife from different continents. He thoughtfully studies his subjects in detail to portray, with his own passion, their great beauty. His technique of painting on wood and using oil and tempera creates a trompe l’oeil effect that is admired worldwide. The Grand Bohemian Gallery is proud to exclusively represent Stefano Cecchini and his works.  Have a "lazy cat" sort of day today my friends!  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com
