IT WAS SO MUCH FUN WE’RE DOING IT AGAIN!

The 22nd “Live the Light” Round (yes we’ve decided to name them) of the Photography Scavenger Hunt will be starting very soon!

Sign-ups WILL be held on Saturday, February 3rd beginning at noon Chicago time.

They will be open for a few days or until we reach 350 sign-ups, whichever comes first.

I will once again be steering this crazy scavenger ship (+Lauri Novak)
only 7 words will be given
and only 350 spots will be open.

If you're not sure what the Photography Scavenger Hunt is... it is simply an extremely creative way to get out and shoot. If you love photography - this is for you. It's that simple.

Every level of photographer is welcomed and encouraged to join.
You will learn, you will be inspired, you will meet a community of like-minded people who will embrace you.

If this sounds like something you would like to be a part of
then join me - here on my Google+ page at Noon (CST) on Saturday, February 3rd, and just say, "I'm in".

Invite your friends and family - let’s grow this game!

Attached is an example of what you can create when inspired. The word was "Squash" and these are 9 examples from extraordinary photographers who participated. Images by +Karen Kurta +Kathleen Kent +Mary Bel +Dianne Maguire +Jake Johnson +Giselle Savoie +Sue Neufeldt +Robin Cohen & +Wade Brooks

This has been working really well the last two rounds so we’re keeping it: Besides the I’m In comment there will also be a Google Form to fill out - not much info just saves some setup time in the background and helps the Dream Team in collecting images when the time comes.

Here is a World Time clock and converter:

We lost Lexie Monday night. Sharing a sweet tribute to her we received from a dear friend, Sharon. Her German Shepherds, Sioux and Sami, were like sisters to Lexie. Over the years, Lexie and my wife, Linda, spent many long hours walking and playing with Sharon and her girls.

____________________________________________________

Just like people, there are some dogs, very special ones, who come into your life at just the right time, and stay just long enough to work their magic, fulfill their purpose, and then they wisely know they have done their job well....

Lexie, you were the very best mentor for my young girls, and you taught them well, and with patience and stability and understanding. My Sioux and Sami learned balance and boundaries, learned that other dogs are fun and interesting, by spending their hours, days, weeks, months, and in Sioux' case years, learning from you. We became a happy pack of three, sharing treats and toys and playing chase and keep away until we were too exhausted to play anymore. Yes, my girls loved having you over, and would watch out the window and wait for you to arrive with Linda on so many mornings....or run to the car to load up to go meet you in the park. Just a quiet mention of your name turned a peaceful morning of lazy lounging dogs into craziness as they jumped up at hearing your name, and ran and barked looking out windows and running to the front door to find you.

Lexie, you worked your way into my heart too. I love you. And I will never forget you. Every time I experience my girls being calm and confident and showing respect around other dogs, I will smile and remember who showed them the ropes, who grew them up to be right and proper and good dogs. And I will always be thankful beyond words.

I already miss you, Good Sweet Girl. You lived your life well, and did not give up or give in. You woke up having one of your better days, and shared a beautiful morning walk with Linda and chased a squirrel one more time, and I feel you must have been content in doing your favorite things and loving your time being back home this week spending it peacefully with your family again.

Thank you, Lexie, for sharing all those good times with me and my girls, Sami and Sioux, and making it so special for us. Rest easy, Good, Sweet Girl.

This is a first pass attempt at creating a time lapse video of the eclipse using wide-angle shots taken in Marshall, Missouri.

Notice the umbra moving in from the right and then moving off to the left. In mid-totality, notice how distinctive the Sun's corona is, even as small as the Sun is in the overall image.

Not entirely satisfied with this, yet, but sharing while I continue to work on a "final" version.

As a follow up to my trials and tribulations finding a long-lost home-recorded audio cassette tap I'd recorded in the late 70s of a LA radio station "import hour" (and then getting a digital copy of it once found), here are most of the songs on it. Eventually, I'll try to put together a playlist but that will have to be a Google Play Music playlist; it doesn't look like some of these are available on Spotify, In the meantime, here is the list.
