Reservation Land, Northern Arizona
An image captured 6 years ago along Highway 89 just south of Cameron, Arizona. With the Golden Hour and the intense contrast of cool tones and warm storm light brings, this view is vivid to me over the years.

WOW!  Reddit is in Flames this Afternoon!
Wholesale slashing and burning of popular Reddits and Subs this afternoon after a key staff was fired.  Some of the very most popular Reddits, mainstays alway in the headlines, are just... gone.  Disappeared and going dark even as managers are typing.  Over 100 million members of some of these are going to be rather disgruntled and mystified. Sorry to see this happen in such a way.  My favorite Reddit feature is/was AMA.

Ta-Da!  Finally the Reveals and I can Share my Bliss Photo!
I've been waiting and waiting to be able to share my favorite photo I've taken in months.  As part of the Round 15 Scavenger Hunt, we had to keep our entries secret until all are revealed.  When you click through from my image of our caregiver EJ holding my dog G+, you will see such image of BLISS, the topic of this album.  This is a pure joy to share with my friends, and you'll be smiling and have such a warm feeling from seeing this collection!  
If the click through does not work for you, here is a link to the whole album of 254 entries:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+ChrystaRae/posts/Fa2ZNuQrhpD

This is a fantastic experience unlike anything I've ever participated in before.  Thanks to the host of Google+ I've had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people around the world.  And now I get to see what make them excited.  Thanks to +Chrysta Rae and +Nancy Levan and +Pat Kight and +Marilyn Benham and so many people who have contributed to this inspiring project!  And now, waiting for the day to sign up for the next round.

Posting a final cheery message from a most momentous day, using the rainbow flowers image I posted this morning for #floralfriday  and this screenshot of a brilliant Onion post which is one of the first thoughts I had this happy morning with the news of SCOTUS.  Do check out the link for the most excellent Onion post.

Red White is Blue
An old image from 2008 of fireworks, with a Point and Shoot camera in a JPG file, edited in LIghtroom. While most folks will get out the tripod and do the tricks to shoot great still shots with frozen action of fireworks, I found that using a P & S camera with a burst mode isolated several pleasing abstract images. This photo was searched out in my archives from six years ago to both express a patriotic vision for the US Fourth of July yet also show my concern for this year where it is has been less than heroic or ideal in the expression of patriotism and ideals which the country has been founded on.

Coal Mine Canyon, Arizona
Five years ago in the Golden Hour this canyon comes alive. All this area is on reservations of the Navajo and Hopi nations. This was shot with my old Canon 40D, in jpg, before I learned to use the RAW capture on my dSLR. The current versions of Lightroom work well to bring back old images even when the file sizes are not large enough for better editing. I posted this for the landscape seems to show the beauty of the desert, even in intense heat. Coal Mine Canyon got this name from the past coal mining and you can see seams of coal in the geological layers exposed here.

NOT a Hate Crime????
Calling on +Yonatan Zunger and others commenting in his recent post about racism in America...
Happening now, at least the SEVENTH black church to be set on fire in a week.My comment in that post was "How many churches have to burn and in what period of time, before this is considered hate crime?"

Sadly I must disable comments on this post. It is obvious that merely posting it has drawn forth the most negative of fear and hate mongering.

Modern Starry Night, Phoenix
One of the new solar lights, lining our driveway in central Phoenix. iPhone 6 Plus image taken with NightCap Pro, edited in Autodesk Pixlr on Mac.

I had no idea that the sturdy night lamps would cast large glowing stars. Now that I have them I like this. Does the job of trying to keep my van or other vehicles from running over the lawn sprinkler heads. You can see the red spot in the upper left corner. I had previously tried putting large red spikes in the ground near each head. I also was tired of someone running over the sprinkler heads with the lawnmower.

Playing through Obstacles
Anavey playing croquet for the first time has learned to play through the obstacles. A fig tree and the family dog are a bit of a challenge. Dedicated to my friend +mary Zeman today, and she knows why. Tagging in dad +Cameron Bolender and uncle, +Drew Bolender

Haven't played in decades. This reminds me of some of the contortions I went through then that there is no way I could achieve now.

In Celebration of Marriage Equality AND Floral Friday!
Of course I had to change my plans for sharing a floral image today.  First try at using a rainbow gradient and it does show some joy, eh?
#marriageequality   #floralfriday  
While I know that the hashtag searches are not exactly working well lately, here are tags for our Floral Friday curators and I just bet there will be many glorious blooming flowers seen online today! +Tamara Pruessner +Kiki Nelson +Beth Akerman +Eustace James
