Beautiful reception room, Tabatabei Historic House, Kashan, Iran (best larger)  In Iran, honoring guests is a very important part of their culture. The most important part of a Muslem house is a guest room (reception room) which is situated in the Southeast part of the house. At the center of the front there is a five or seven door room with two small spaces attached to it. This room traditionally is beautifully decorated, often with mirror work.  I really like the play of the light, shadows, designs and colours in the room which combined to produce a very harmonius, pleasing effect.

5/27/15 - Art by Colin and Charles Parson at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center; I considered straightening some parts of this image but decided that the perspective of the photographer who is looking upon this scene adds some intangible "feeling" to the image.  I've featured this work of art previously but whenever I see it, I can't help photographing it anew.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of

May 27.  The Florida "Whispering Giant." The Trail of the Whispering Giants is a collection of sculptures by Hungarian-born artist Peter Wolf Toth.The sculptures range in height from 20 to 40 feet (6.1 to 12.2 m), and are between 8 and 10 feet (2.4 and 3.0 m) in diameter. Currently there are 74 Whispering Giants, with at least one in each of the 50 U.S. states, as well as in Ontario and Manitoba, Canada, and one in Hungary. In 1988, Toth completed his goal of placing at least one statue in each of the 50 states, by carving one in Hawaii, and in 2008, he created his first Whispering Giant in Europe, Stephen I of Hungary in Délegyháza, Hungary along the Danube River.

26.05.15 - Swan Family  I'll be watching these guys over the coming weeks. I've been watching the nest at the old fishponds for a while and a couple of days ago noticed at least two babies had arrived. They have moved from the ponds to the adjacent river now, I'm pretty certain it is the same family, and two cygnets are definitely visible.

June 4, 2012    "All we need, really, is a change from a near frigid to a tropical attitude of mind."  ~ Marjory Stoneman Douglas    I haven't had much time (none almost) to take new photos lately, so I had to dip back into some of those that are "still in the can" to get this post for today.  And, you'll likely see more in the coming days.      I believe that this is a Dracaena plant.  Help me out here PapaMugger.........    Anyway, it was a beautiful plant.  I've seen them before in the U.S. but the were smaller, potted plants.  This one was in front of one of the city buildings in Nassau, Bahamas and it was like a small tree.  I love the slender, colorful leaves.    Yes, I'm woefully behind on possessing the photos from our trip to the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.  But rest assured, I'm working on them a little bit at a time.  "-))    Frame created in PicMonkey.  Photo SOOC.    I'm headed out for another week of travel in the Valley of Texas.  It will be a long, hard, hot and likely dusty week.  I'll do my best to comment in the evenings.  You guys are fantastic, and I learn so much from your work.    Have a 'colorful' day today my friends, and a wonderful week.    Linda
Beautiful reception room, Tabatabei Historic House, Kashan, Iran (best larger)

In Iran, honoring guests is a very important part of their culture. The most important part of a Muslem house is a guest room (reception room) which is situated in the Southeast part of the house. At the center of the front there is a five or seven door room with two small spaces attached to it. This room traditionally is beautifully decorated, often with mirror work.

I really like the play of the light, shadows, designs and colours in the room which combined to produce a very harmonius, pleasing effect.
