23.05.15 - South Common  These shots are from my guided photo walk on Lincoln South Common yesterday afternoon. The Common is an ancient piece of rough open land on the hillside opposite the Cathedral, it is owned by the local Council and protected from development so it is a very valuable green space with fantastic view across the city. As well as the big views there is lots to photograph right under your feet, and the resident horses are always co-operative!
For 24/05/15 I thought I selected the tangerine colored portulacas but these seem to be blooming in yellow. No complaints here because I love these flowers.!! They had pinks , orange and whites and I'm thinking,,,,,,,,  so many thanks to everyone for the comments and visits.   I look forward to looking in on all of your galleries!  xx

Storks at sunrise    Pair of Jabiru storks on their nest at sunrise.  Every evening the storks went back to their large messy nest on the Fazenda St Tereza and very morning just after sunrise they flew off to fish.  I had to get up early to catch them still on the nest.  Pixaim River, Pantanal, Brazil    A shot of the storks just after returning to their nest at dusk can be seen here + a couple of other shots of them at sunrise: http://goo.gl/XiTqH4    19/04/15 www.allenfotowild.com

As noted, these are my backup plus my working drives.  I strated doing digital in 2000.  The one on the far right holds 2000-2007 it is 100GB FW 1 and the libary is 22GB.  Next is a Fantom 2TB USB 2 drive holds 2008-20013 size is 1.5TB.  The G-Drive  3TB (thunderbolt) size is 1.29 TB that is my 14-15.  The little G drive is my working drive 1 TB so I do not fill up my SSD on my laptop.  I think our pictures are getting larger and larger.  Pictures are 40M raw coming out of my D800.  I have a complete backup of everything I have done.  Do you backup to a seperate drive?

May 23, 2015  I'm renting a few long lenses to see if I like them.  If I do find one I like, then I may buy it, or rent the favorite one long term to take on our Alaska cruise this summer.  The first one that I'm trying out is a Tamron 150-600.  I was out in our backyard checking it out last Sunday, and as luck would have it, a pair of Roadrunners came out of their forested hiding places.  The female in the foreground was in our backyard, and the male was on the other side of the fence on our neighbor's driveway.  It's not the greatest photo, but I was just so thrilled to get them both in the same shot, that I decided to share.  I'm shooting at them from probably about 300 feet away.  I have cropped the shot just a bit.  "Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly."  ~ Langston Hughes  Have a wonderful and fine day today my friends!

Day 143: Iris Garden - May 23. Love visiting this garden each year when the irises are in bloom.  Presby Memorial Iris Garden, located  in Montclair, NJ, is about a 40 drive for me and when I get there I could spend hours with such a huge variety of flowers to enjoy and photograph. Filled up my memory card with iris portraits and can't wait to get back next week since there are still many buds that have not opened as yet.
Every year I try to make it out to the Dayton National Cemetery on the grounds of the VA Medical Center for the Memorial Day Weekend Grave Decoration.  Local boy and girl scouts place an American flag at the base of every one of the 40,000+ graves honoring those who gave their lives in sacrifice to others.  This is one of my favorite images from this year's shoot, a simple, but hopefully, fitting tribute to those who gave so much.

"How Did This Happen?"

There is a magnolia tree over these palms. The only thing I can figure is when the dead leaf dropped it hit just right on the tip of the palm thus getting stuck. An act of nature it must be.

Thank you for your comments on my photos.
