Takahiro Yamamoto3,095,709We'll finish our 366 project in several days! Are you happy about it? Or are you sad? Anyway, who not celebrate the fact that we're completing our missions! You can share two shots this time. *Please remember just two images!* 1) Your best or most favorite shot you took in the fourth quarter of 2012 (October- December). Add #Bestof4Q12Creative366  in the comment section after you post the image! 2) Your best or most favorite shot you took for the project this year. Add #BestofCreative366Project  in the comment section after you post the image! If you think those two tags are too complicated, forget them and just two of your images! But please add your comment in the comment section after you have posted them. *And if you are the one who failed to complete the mission and are thinking you are going to do it again next year, you can add your fav one you took for the project here!* One last thing: I have made this event "public." I might have missed inviting those who are participating this +Creative 366 Project, so if you know anyone who isn't here but is doing his/her project, please invite them! 366プロジェクトもあと数日で終わりです。うれしいですか。それとも、悲しい? どちらにしても、長かったミッションの終わりを皆で祝いましょう! 今回は写真を2枚シェアしてください。 *2枚だけです!* 1.10月~12月にプロジェクト用に撮った写真から、お気に入りの写真かベストの写真を1枚選んで投稿してください。 #Bestof4Q12Creative366  のタグを投稿後にコメント欄に入れてください。 2.プロジェクトのために撮った写真から、今年のベスト(もしくはお気に入り)! の写真を1枚選んで投稿して下さい。  #BestofCreative366Project  をタグとします。 タグが面倒なら、ただ2枚を選んで投稿してくださるだけで結構です。写真のコメント欄に、その写真の思い出などを書き添えていただけるとうれしいです。 そして、このプロジェクトに参加したのに途中で挫折した!来年こそは!という方も、ぜひこのイベントにご参加ください。挫折するまでに撮った写真をシェアしていただければ結構です。もちろん、来年への抱負も添えてくださいね!The Best of Your 3662012-12-30 16:00:0088

#TulipSaturday by +Measie Elizabeth +Marilyn Benham +Eustace James

How Do You Do

Morning!  A lovely yellow Tulip from my garden waving a hello on a dreary day here in Kansas.  This was one of the old bulbs on the property that came up this year.  Loved the bright color of it.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great weekend!  It was a long time coming this week for me.

#waterfallwednesday by +Eric Leslie

Morning!  Another scorcher for the first day of July, mid to high 90s.  UGH  I haven't had anything to play in this theme for a while, hope to rectify that next week on a vacation trip.  Anyway, back in early June when we got rain the waterfall in the new housing development  behind me started flowing.  I believe this was always there and just exposed when the development was put in.  The water cascades over natural limestone steps.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#transporttuesday +TransportTuesday by +Gene Bowker  +Annie Irving

Morning!  Going to be a hot one again today, mid 90s F.  Yuck.  This is an image from the Bi-plane Fly-In held back in early June in Junction City, KS.  This Mohawk Bi-plane owned and flown by a local car dealer was giving rides and raising money for an aeronautics group for young adults.  The plane was in the midst of changing riders at this point.  I decided to process it a bit different.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#backyardbirdingmonday +Backyard Birding Monday #BackyardbirdingMonday by +Celeste Odono +Ricky L Jones +Marilou Aballe

Morning!  I finally got a decent Nuthatch photo!  It's not as close as I'd like and it's actually my fault.  I was using my big lens but was so excited to see it and in a hurry to catch it I forgot to zoom in.  SIGH  Ah well, I still like it and wanted to share.  I captured this in Minnesota while I was steaming up the large scale train that I help run there.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great start to your week.

Hi all, it's #steamysunday  where co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I hope you will play along with some steamy shots!  I saw some great ones yesterday from parts of the world where it was Sunday already.  :-)  It can be ANYTHING STEAMY we love it all, even steam off your tea!  Just please tag us and the theme so we can enjoy them.
My image goes back to the archives today.  This is a double header from the Cumbres & Toltec Railway heading out of Chama #newmexico  on it's way to Antonito, #colorado  .  At this point it is a trip that is mostly uphill and you can see they are working hard.  The one in the back most likely just had coal thrown in, they are darkest right after that till the dust blows off and settles.  You can see the front one is clearing already.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Light My Fire

Hi all!  Haven't played in this theme in a bit.  I was able to capture a lot of tulip photos this spring as it seemed to be a good year for them.  This is one of my new ones.  I loved the light on it and was able to come up with a name.  :-)  Anyone know about tulips?  They come from bulbs but several that I planted have big seed pod heads, what are those for?  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#floralfriday +FloralFriday by +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson +Eustace James

UGH  If I could remember to add a photo these days.  SIGH
Happy Friday!  I saw this beautiful water Iris at the railroad I work at one day a few weeks ago after a rain.  It still has some raindrops on it.  We had rain last night so I thought this was a fitting image to use today.  I bet it's going to be very humid today but at least it is supposed to cool down to the low 80s instead of 100F.  Hope you all enjoy the image and have a great start to the weekend!

#inmotionthursday +InMotion Thursday by +Scott Thomas

Morning!  This was kind of a luck shot.  I was photographing this frog who was probably waiting for lunch to fly by and got this dragonfly in the image as well.  I am guessing the dragonfly was not what he wanted on the menu.  :-)  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.  I hope we are cooling off today, up around 100F once again.  Yuck.

#widewednesdaypanorama +WideWednesdayPanorama by +Ken McMahon +David Heath Williams

Morning!  Going to be a scorcher here today again, around 100F.  Sigh, it's not even July yet.  This is from much cooler days.  This view is out on Konza Prairie as you travel around Butterfly Hill which is heading off to the left.  This is looking out over the Flint Hills of Kansas.  As you can see, #kansas  is not flat where I live.  Of course this image is best viewed large.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

Morning!  First day back so busy busy.  :-)  This is another flyover of formation flight demonstration at the Bi-plane Fly-In a couple of weekends ago.  There is one impostor in there but it was a fun demonstration and definitely not something you see every day.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!  Hope to start catching up with you all later today.

Hi everyone!  It's travel day back home so thought I would share a photo from my area today.  I got this image of a Meadowlark singing out on Konza Prairie a few weekends ago.  I love to see and hear them out there and was glad to get a decent shot even though it was fairly far away.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!  Will try to catch up with you all tomorrow!

Hi everyone, it's #steamysunday  from the steam capitol of Minnesota!  Co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I hope you will share some steamy images today!  We like ANYTHING STEAMY so please tag us and the theme so we can find them.  I'll be enjoying later as I am off to do some steam related stuff.
This image is a bit different for me because I like trains but last night I went on a ride around the big pond here at the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion grounds that was put on by these 2 steam traction engines.  The one on the left is a 20HP Minneapolis engine that the hubster gets to take care of when we are here.  I rode behind that one of course.  :-)  The other is a big Rumley.  It was a lot of fun and a lovely evening for it as shown in my photo from yesterday.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!  Catch up with you all later!

Hi all from Minnesota.  We were at the head waters of the Mississippi River today.  Lake Itasca is in the background and then water flows over those rocks and thus begins the mighty Mississippi.  I walked across the river here, the water was not near as cold as I thought it would be.  Hope you enjoy the image and are having a great day!

Hi all!  Well we made it to Minnesota!  As the hubster was setting up the camper, I stayed out of his way and didn't rush him because of all the mosquitoes.  I saw the most Blue Damsels that I have ever seen in one place.  Got my macro and caught this one with lunch.  Hope you enjoy it and are having a great day!  Catch up with you later!

Hi all, it's #steamysunday  where co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and  I hope you have been sharing some steamy shots today!  I'm late today because I was off doing steamy things like running this locomotive.  I was taking a break and the hubster, +Darren Gunderson was running at the time and the guy waving is one of the owners of the locomotive.  We had a good day till it decided to pour down rain at about 3pm but it was still fun.  Hope you enjoy the image and are having a great day!

Morning all!  Another wet and rainy day.  Because of all the rain we are seeing mushrooms around.  I saw this very small, maybe only 2 inches tall, one growing out of some moss and got this image of it.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#floralfriday +FloralFriday by +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson +Eustace James

Morning!  Well, we had another inch of rain and more is on the way.  I really don't want to complain because we were so dry for so long but it could spread itself out some.  :-)  As I said, feast or famine these days.  Wish we could share some with California.  I thought this image was appropriate for today.  This is my neighbor's lovely yellow Iris after one of the rains we have received this spring.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.  It's finally Friday!  It's been a long week.

Morning!  We are getting more rain today and it's dreary out so I felt like brightening things up.  We hadn't been able to get rain for a couple of years and now we have just about made up for it and if it keeps on like they are talking into next Wednesday, will have more than enough.  So the photo is a female Black Swallowtail that was enjoying the blooming Butterfly Milkweed out on Konza Prairie last Friday.  I was happy to get several shots of her as she was moving about and beating her wings fairly quickly.  Hope you enjoy her and have a great day!

#widewednesdaypanorama +WideWednesdayPanorama by +Ken McMahon +David Heath Williams

Hi all!  It's hot here already, 95F today at least for a high.  Yuck.  Plus with the rain we have been getting it's HUMID.  :-)  Anyway, this image is a 3 frame stitch from Friday evening out on Konza Prairie.  It's best viewed large of course.  The orange spots in various places but especially on the left foreground are the Butterfly Milkweed that is currently in bloom and makes things look quite lovely.  I loved the low sunlight on the trees and grass as I took this image close to sunset.  I am not very fond of #kansas  but the prairie is quite beautiful and makes it worthwhile to be here.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.

#transporttuesday +TransportTuesday by +Gene Bowker  +Annie Irving

Morning!  This past Saturday the annual Bi-plane Fly-In was held in Junction City, #kansas  .  The number of planes were a bit light due to the rainy weather we have been having lately but there were a good amount that were able to make it.  At the end of the day they did some formation flying which is fairly difficult due to wind current compensation from the other planes and just the fact that they are flying closely but they did a fine job.  You can see that half of them are not quite Bi-Planes but they made it fun.  :-)  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.  Mine will be pretty busy.  It's summer, it's supposed to be slower.

Argh  I just can't seem to remember to add the photo doing posts this way.  Hi all!  Busy weekend with all kinds of activities going on and no time to catch up.  Hope to do that this evening.  It began with a walk on Friday out at Konza Prairie.  It was a lovely evening for viewing the prairie birds and wildflowers and just the landscape in general.  I was able to get this image of a male Dickcissel singing for a mate.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.

Hi all, #steamysunday  is here and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I hope you will share your steamy images with us!  They can be ANYTHING STEAMY we love it all, even steam off your coffee or tea so come on and play along with a steamy image!  Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them.
My image is still of the miniature kind.  This is the first Live Steam locomotive I ever had called a Mimi.  It runs really well on our friend's nice and fairly level track.  It runs on butane and water and that is steam coming out the stack.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Sunset Over Konza

Hi all!  I spent the evening out at #konzaprairie  last night.  It was a lovely evening and the rain stayed away so we could hike.  There were some distant clouds that made for a lovely sunset and this is one of my captures of it.    Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Week 12 - Yin/Yang

Hi all, here is my take on this week's theme.  I had quite the difficulty trying to figure out something for this theme.  I was looking through some photos I took at the Large Scale Railroad that I work at from this past Saturday and saw these tracks and had an idea.  Hope you enjoy it!

#floralfriday +FloralFriday by +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson +Eustace James

Hi everyone, it's Friday here finally!  Yay!  This is an older image of a Blanket flower that I made a little artsy.  It was taken after a rain and I loved the bokeh in it as well.  I thought it was a fitting image as we are finally getting rain here lately.  Had quite the pour down last night.  This plant did not make it over the winter and so I bought a new one this spring because I love the blooms it produces.  So far it's doing well and has just started blooming with several flowers this past week.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day and great start to your weekend!

Hi all!  It's the 17 year cycle for Cicadas here in Kansas, maybe everywhere, not sure.  Anyway, I caught this guy on a drizzly morning hanging out on this leaf.  I looked up into the trees after and there were a great number of them hanging around.  They were silent though.  It's weird, if you have ever heard one they are quite loud.  I can't imagine the racket all of those would have made.  Hope you enjoy this guy and have a great day!

Well, it helps if I attach a photo.  I found it funny that I got 2 Pluses without it.  Morning!  Looks like the day is going to start out stormy.  This image was taken on a stormy day a few weeks ago.  These locomotives are sitting beside the Topeka BNSF station which is rather non-descriptive.  This area is just outside the main Shops area for the BNSF formally the Santa Fe Shops.  These locomotives are in use though, just sitting in wait.  I found it interesting there was still the BN locomotive in the old paint scheme.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello!  This is an image of a Tufted Titmouse that I was able to get early this Spring.  Usually they are quite active and don't sit for long but this one actually stopped and posed long enough to capture.  They are such cute little birds and love peanuts just as much as the Bluejays I originally thought I was going to be feeding with them.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

My image today is of some Garden Rwy Live Steam Locomotives that I saw at our friend's house last weekend while he was having his Steam Up get together.  I shot them to look more real and the fact that they are beautiful pieces of equipment helps.  I know the one on the right is a Shay locomotive but I can't remember what the left one is at the moment.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi everyone!  +Dylan Johnson was inspired by a photo I shared today and shared one in the same style.  Take a look at his well focused Bumble butt and show his photo some love.  Dylan is an up and coming photographer and has some really great images so if you add him to your circles too you will see some great stuff!

Bee Thursday

Bumblebee butt, inspired by +Shelly Gunderson​​ :)

I showed the front of this bumblebee last week, (at least, I think it is the same. They were both taken on the same day,) so I thought today would be a great time to show the back. I rarely get things in flight, so I was quite happy with this shot.

Morning!  Last week I shared a Honey Bee's butt, today you get a Bumble Bee butt.  :-)  I was photographing this Bumble flying in and out of these Penstemons in my garden.  I captured this in flight shot and liked it so thought I would share.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!  Mine started out with a rain storm and no power so couldn't take a shower or have a proper cup of coffee.  Sigh  Having to drink instant at work, glad I like it, Folgers only though.  :-)

Hi all!  Hope you are having a nice long weekend in the States.  I'm enjoying mine.  The Orioles are back finally.  They seemed to arrive late this year.  This Baltimore Oriole male was resting on the deck in between trips to the feeder and jelly.  They are so bright and lovely.  Hope you enjoy him and have a great day!

I finally have a current image.  I steamed up my Garden Rwy Shay locomotive over at a friend's house on Friday.  He's got a great concrete bed that has me thinking I need to redo mine.  That really is steam out the stack, these little locos do not smoke.  :-)  Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#TulipSaturday by +Measie Elizabeth +Marilyn Benham +Eustace James

How Do You Do

Morning!  A lovely yellow Tulip from my garden waving a hello on a dreary day here in Kansas.  This was one of the old bulbs on the property that came up this year.  Loved the bright color of it.  Hope you enjoy it and have a great weekend!  It was a long time coming this week for me.

Week 11 - Self Portrait

Hi all!  This is my take.  I hate photos of myself.  Anyway, this is me doing my second favorite thing.  If this theme took place in late June or even later this month I could have had a shot doing my favorite thing, running a steam train.  Anyway, I used my broken Pentax on a tripod on a 12 second timer and as the shutter went off on it, I snapped the shutter on a macro I was taking of these Columbines.  Sometime I'll have to share that image.  Maybe on my Blog.  :-)  So there you go, this is me.

#floralfriday +FloralFriday by +Tamara Pruessner +Beth Akerman +Kiki Nelson +Eustace James

Hi all!  Felt like something a bit bright today.  We are in for several rainy days which even if we don't get rain, will be several cloudy days.  This is an image I took during the winter of some flowers I bought to brighten up the house and also to play around with.  I processed these with a high key look.  Hope you enjoy them and that they brighten your day as well.  Have a great start to the weekend!

#beethursday +Bee Thursday by +Dorothy Pugh

Hi all!  We have a sunny day today!  I'm not complaining about the rain, just wish the sun was out when it wasn't.  :-)  I got this image on Saturday.  I'm not sure what these blossoms are but I got an unexpected surprise while looking at the images I took of them.  Hope you enjoy this Honey Bee's butt among the flowers and have a great day!

#waterbirdwednesday +Water Bird Wednesday by +Margaret Tompkins

Hi all!  I took this image on a trip to Missouri and Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge in the northwest part of the state.  I saw a large number of waterbirds that day including this very large group of pelicans that was almost constantly in movement around the main water area.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#transporttuesday +TransportTuesday by +Gene Bowker  +Annie Irving

Hi all!  I finally have something to play in this theme with.  I was in Topeka on Saturday down by the BNSF shops and caught these 2 older units heading in.  I got my shots finished just as it began to rain, hence the gloomy sky.  Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!
