The Great Gatsby?

Click on the photo to see previous posts.Light Impressions of Antique Car Headlight Grill and Horn Nethercutt Collection Los Angeles CaliforniaI’ve posted a picture of a 1931 Bugatti, and this is another vintage car from the wonderful collection at the Nethercutt Museum.

Unfortunately I don’t remember who made it or the year it was built. And as far as I know it has no connection with The Great Gatsby other than it is reminiscent of that era.

Hoover Dam -- Winged Figures of the Republic

Winged Figures of the Republic

From the Bureau Of Reclamation website:

On top of the dam, two "Winged Figures of the Republic" dominate the Nevada approach, They are the work of sculptor Oskar J.W. Hansen, a Norwegian immigrant who was appointed a consulting sculptor by Secretary of the Interior Harold L. Ickes following a national competition.

Hansen said the 30-foot bronzed statues represented "that eternal vigilance which is the price of liberty."

Don’t forget to visit The Weekend in Black and White for some great black and white photography.

Welcome To The World

Welcome To The WorldI usually use Photoshop to edit my pictures, but all the features can sometimes be overwhelming. For some simple tweaks, I find that Picasa does the job. In the new 3.8 version they have integrated the online Picnik editing tool, which makes it more powerful yet simple tool. Best of all, it is free. You may want to check it out.

Bent But Not Broken

Bent But Not Broken

I took this picture at St. Elias Cemetery near the town of Hamat in Northern Lebanon.  This area know as Theoprosopon from the Greek meaning “The Face Of God” is a cape that is home to some amazing ancient sites such as the monastery of Our Lady of Light (Saydet el Nourieh), a small chapel honoring Saint Simeon Stylites and the 17th century Mseilha Fort.

I’ve already posted another picture (Rock By The Sea) from this area and will post some more when I get to it.

Defiance By Coincidence

defiance

I am not one who tries to find a meaning to every picture. But this broken tree is defying death as it continues to contribute to the landscape by turning one of its branches upright, and appearing as if it was still standing. What do you think?

Water Balloons

For 4th of July we had a block party. The neighborhood kids decided to have a water balloon fight.

It took them hours to get ready, but only few fun minutes to get totally drenched.
