SPECIAL FEATURED CATS - Vixen and Rosemary - Check out the video!!!   Please Share!!!

From Jane Weatherford, Brown County Humane Society, Nashville, IN

Last week, you helped us get the word out about Tyler and, after 2.5 years at the shelter, he finally got his forever home. We’re asking for your extra help again.

Vixen and Rosemary are two fabulous cats that need to find homes now. They are both the exact type of cat that people always ask for: lap cat, playful, sweet, good with dogs, good with all people. Not to mention, beautiful! So what’s the rush?

Both cats have Feline Leukemia virus (FeLV). Neither cat has shown any signs of illness, but FeLV gives them weaker immune systems. One key to managing the disease is keeping their lives stress-free.

Vixen and Rosemary are in a foster home. We now have the opportunity to send both cats to live at the sanctuary at Best Friends in Utah. They’ll be well taken care of there. But a 1600 mile trip will be very stressful for them. More importantly, we believe that there is NO reason these wonderful cats should spend their lives at a sanctuary, instead of knowing what it’s like to live in their own homes, giving love and comfort and being part of a family.

Vixen is a total lap cat! She loves to snuggle and she loves to supervise all activity. She especially loves people. When guests come over to the foster home, she’ll be the first to greet them. Vixen is also an avid bird watcher and she loves dogs!

Rosemary is curiosity plus. Birds and squirrels can keep her entertained for hours. But what she really likes is having people play interactive toys with her. She’s quite athletic and super. When she’s played out and ready for a nap, Rosemary seeks out people to curl up with. Rosemary is quite comfortable with dogs.

Vixen and Rosemary do not have to be adopted together. Although they enjoy playing together, they are not dependent on each other.

We are grateful that we have an opportunity to send them to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah, but it would be much better to find them a home closer to here. Their time is limited. You can help. Please forward this everyone you know and ask them to send it to their friends.

Since Vixen and Rosemary are in foster, if someone wants to meet them, an appointment will need to be made. Complete an application at: http://www.bchumane.org/adoption-application/ or call the shelter at 812-988-7362.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about these special girls, and for helping to spread the word. Rosemary & Vixen appreciate it!

See how adorable these two are in their latest video:

Come join the Vertical fun in the event now open in +Landscape Photography Show !!
Landscape Photography Show originally shared:
 
Landscape Photography Show #45: Vertical Rule of Thirds

In the last event, we explored how to set a horizon using the horizontal rule of thirds.  We're continuing with this strong rule of composition by looking at the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  This event will be starting later today so you have a chance to carefully read all the rules.

Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules.

Remember in the last event that you imagined two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divided the space into three equal spaces.  Now, also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later.  For now, we will focus on the vertical lines. 

Does your landscape have a strong vertical element that you want to capture?  Let's say it's a single tree.  We often like to put that tree smack dab in the center of the photo.  We may capture the tree but the photograph is boring.  Try putting that tree along one of the vertical lines separating the space into thirds.  Now the photograph has some drama and added interest.  

That's what we want practice with this event.  Use one of your vertical lines to capture a strong vertical element.  Don't forget the Horizontal Rule of Thirds and Horizon that we had in the last event.  We want both rules of composition used in this event!!

Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.   

1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a strong vertical element using the Vertical Rule of Thirds.  Keep in mind the horizon from the last event.  
2.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the Vertical Rules of Thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.  
3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.
4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.   

General Rules:
1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event.
2) You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done.
3) Only ONE photograph per person is allowed.  If you submit more than one photo, all of your photos will be removed.
4) Circle the +Landscape Photography Show page.
5) Photos must be posted no later than Monday, June 29, 2015, 10 am CDT.  Those posted after that time will be removed.
6) Curator favorites will be shared to the +Landscape Photography theme page.  Circle the curators and engage them in conversation.  You will learn lots from them!!
7) Curators of the +Landscape Photography Show and the theme +Landscape Photography may participate.
8) Technical Requirements: Enable "sharing" on your photo.  If it receives honors, we want to be able to share it!!  Enable "comments" on your photo.  We want to say how great it is!!  Enable "plus ones" so everyone can give it a big plus!!

Happy Birthday America!!  --  Cedar Breaks National Monument

What's better than red rocks?  Red rocks with snow of course!!  This is Cedar Breaks National Monument in Utah.  I was there May 11, 2015 and the road had only been open 3 days.  It's high in the mountains.  It's very close to Zion and Bryce National Parks and well worth a visit.  It's crowd free and the views are amazing!!
