This was not my original post for flickr for my 365.
My sister had Brain Surgery today
for a ruptured anuerism.
I shot this on my way home from the Hospital. It was 11:00 PM and I didn't have a picture.
As I passed this shop all the shiny bikes caught my eye so I decided to stop for a shot.
I was tired and exhausted when I arrived home and didn't really like any of the motorcyle pictures, so I took a shot of a Koala Bear in a tutu sitting on a stack of books in my office.
On later viewing and tweaking the MC images, I decided I did rather like this one..

Shot low into the Street with traffic zipping by, produced the colorful light trails.
I always like a quirky angle shot
The flare in these two shots are caused by headlights on a car across the way.
The shot below is a bit crooked, but I still liked the light
and the reflections in the pool of the fountain,
and the sparkles on the icicle cluster on the bottom tier.
Too bad I didn't have my star~point filter on when shooting these.
For a larger view, click on the picture.
Fortunately I have a remote trigger which enabled me to rest my camera on the ground and shoot some long exposures. It was around 7 Pm and the sun was very low. There were several buildings around so the low light was pretty much blocked out. I used my flash off camera for some of them but just a long exposure for most. The one above was barely bigger than a quarter.
The next two images are shot against the dark blue sky using off camera flash.
This one below and the very topmost one are of the same kind, and are about five inches diameter.

Just as I was contemplating what I wanted to shoot for my 365...
I had been out most of the day and didn't have anything yet...Plus it is Sooooo COLD out today. Like 35 degrees at 3PM.
I had Lunch today at RedBone with my sister and my niece's future Mother in law.. We were discussing plans for the upcoming Wedding in May. Frankly, I did not want to go out again..because of the c-c-c-coldness.
So I was putting together some things for a still shot when the doorbell rang and Voila!
Brown (UPS) had delivered a package from California. Inside the package was this...Two framed pictures..one of Breeze and River, shot by Photographer, Sharon De La O of Huntington Beach, California. One of Rivy shot by his Mom, Photographer, Breeze Flowers, my daughter, of Malibu, California. So I got a wonderful present and I got my 365 of the day!
Right now the pond is frozen. I hope the fish are all ok. They have a sort of a house under the fountain (it's really just an upside down flowerpot) where they can hibernate and lay eggs for the ressurrection of Spring.
This macro shot of a Phalenopsis Orchid was taken by the glass door onto the deck on a rainy day last Summer.
To really appreciate the beauty of these flowers please view large, by clicking on each image.
This Collage is of Fiddleback Ferns and Pink California Poppies at Hart Park.
When I'm in California, Hart Park is a favorite spot for Photo Sessions.
There are Several large lakes and ponds with ducks, geese, Swans, White Egrets and Blue and Night Herons. There is also a large Peacock population.
The Kern River runs alongside this 44 acre Park, located in Bakersfield, California.

Three Sixty Five~Day Six~
These Boots Are Made for Walkin~
Unbelievable...how hard it is to think of one thing to
showcase. I wanted to go out and shoot the Sunset today, but when it was time for the Sun to set...there was no Sun. Even though today was rather warm in
comparison to how cold it has been over the past several days. The South East is preparing for what the Meteorologists are calling the Arctic Blast.
It is actually sleeting outside my door right now.
The temperature is going to drop back to freezing overnight tonight...32 degrees. The High tomorrow is only expected to be around 36 degrees, with lows tomorrow evening in the low teens!
That is just a bit too chilly for this
Southern California girl~
Until tomorrow...Stay Warm!
This shot of the New
Monster Building under this Awesome Rainbow was the beginning of a Wonderful relationship with
Kevin Farrell, VP of Global Real Estate
with Monster World Wide.
This led to a commission with Monster by way of shooting the building again after the signage had been put into place. Which then led to an assignment to shoot the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, in November 09.
