one of the many staircases in Castlebrando. That lamp immediately reminded me of Tom Cruise's descend in Mission Impossible ... ;)

'Roid Week Spring 2014 - Day 3 #1

Well my dear MM-friends, I really tried to make a macro of this wonderful cheese inside of the trap, but only a second later

- I swear - I only was able to photograph those crumbs of it. So it was truly not my default .. the mouse must be an „Ethan Hunt“ of the mice .. or something like that :wink:


Oh, I hear something?


Soundtrack Mission Impossible

Hope you will all have a great day my dear friends and followers:two_hearts: ✌♫:love_letter:

One of my Flickr friends and I went for a photo shoot to Goliad TX... found the most beautiful buildings, and missions there. The small town, has around 1000 population, and has houses like you stepped back into history. Wanted to show more sides at one time, and tried this one, the really nice thing at that day was, that we had plenty of cloud cover...


Thank you all for looking at my stream, and your lovely comments. I do appreciate all of your loyalty.


My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. Maya Angelou


Thank you all who commented with so much appreciation on the photo of my 2 heart beats.


Mother's Day Weekend. Enjoy with every moment as much gratitude as you can muster. That is my mission and goal!

I went for a walk today and took a macro shot of some poppies on Mission Street with my Blackberry.

From the forgotten Texas road trip.

Known as the "Queen of the Missions", this is the largest of the missions and was almost fully restored to its original design in the 1930s by the WPA. Spanish missions were not churches, but communities, with the church the focus. Mission San José shows the visitor how all the missions might have looked over 250 years ago.


Promise of snow ... then perhaps spring

in San Antonio Texas - slid a bit for Slider Sunday!

No suelo visitar Iglesias pero esta Mision construida en 1797 siempre me deja cautivado de su riqueza en historia y su belleza

When I feel the powerful visions

Their fire has made alive

I wish I had that instinct -- I wish I had that drive


Spirits fly on dangerous missions

Imaginations on fire

Focused high on soaring ambitions

Consumed in a single desire


In the grip of a nameless possession --

A slave to the drive of obsession --

A spirit with a vision is a dream with a mission...

My second mission since Geonosis has been an absolute drag. My orders were to find any sort of Seperatist activity. They've definitely been here all right, but they are not here anymore. The blast marks and damage is at least a month old. Although, I do suspect an ambush soon...


I'm starting a new Clone Wars series, so expect more builds like this.

Mission Santa Barbara, also known as Santa Barbara Mission, is a Spanish mission founded by the Franciscan order near present-day Santa Barbara, California. It was founded December 4, 1786, the feast day of Saint Barbara, as the tenth mission for the religious conversion of the indigenous local Chumash—Barbareño tribe of Native American people. The mission is the namesake of the city of Santa Barbara as well as Santa Barbara County.


From Wikipedia

Mission Impossible.

A herd of Rooibok come to drink water. Then, in a split second, a calm and peaceful scene turned into absolute chaos. They climb up an almost impossibly steep river bank.

My goal was to capture the chaos during the event.

I finally made it to beautiful Santa Barbara!!

Often a star was waiting for you to notice it.

A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past,

or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing.

All this was mission. But could you accomplish it?

Weren't you always distracted by expectation, as if every event announced a beloved?

------Rainer Maria Rilke


Location- Kessel

We arrived in the atmosphere above Kessel and we prepared ourselves for our first mission on the planet. We were told that prisoners had found F9-TZ freighters and were using them to escape. Our task was to proceed to a docking bay on the surface and board a freighter and pursue prisoners that had escape with these transports. We arrived on the surface and headed toward the docking bay. Once we finally arrived, we continued toward where the transports were being held.


When we finally found a freighter to take, I gathered around with Tac and Limb and told them what to do. We had to stop those prisoners.


Not my best, I intended on including a cutaway of the freighter, but it looked dreadful so I decided that it was best not to include it.

This image surprised me ~ I had a small basket of mission figs and lined them up like soldiers (I tried them in a small bowl first, but did not like that tabletop still life look). Then I got out the macro lens ~ geeze I didn't know they were almost as seductive as pears to paint! I didn't realize there were so many shades of purple hidden in the black skins. So, here you have my Mission Fig Soldiers with their very own fig bokeh, painted in PhotoShop and slightly textured with my textures. I hate saying "with my textures" but if I don't state that then certain groups do not let your image in ~ you have to state where the textures came from.


Who knew I could ramble so much about figs? OH ~ they are delicious :-)


Cut figs in half, press a small amount of goat cheese (Cypress Grove Humboldt Fog Goat Cheese is preferred) Wrap a thin slice of prosciutto (Italian, of course) around the center of the fig half. Lay flat side down in a grill pan on the grill and cook for less than 30 seconds, rotate and cook 20 more seconds, turn over and warm for another minute. Place on platter and drizzle with balsamic vinegar reduction and toasted walnuts.


Open your favorite vino and enjoy. . .


Oh, my ~ I can live on appetizers, who needs the real meal? Life is a series of snacks and picnics to me.
