Without doubt, one of the most spectacular concert venues in the world. The Sydney Opera House (again) shining like a pearl across the dark waters of Sydney Harbour.

This is a sterling silver and pearl necklace I made in my jewelry making days.
I love pearls more than diamonds. They're just more beautiful to me. =)
This is from a Focus shoot up on Central Coast a few weeks ago. The low tide was perfect for this shot as the rocks were exposed but some decent waves meant that the water flowed quite far up the beach. For a few minutes, the skies lit up.
Pearl Beach is located on the southern side of Gosford, and is close to Umina Beach. In the distance is Palm Beach the northern end of the Sydney northern beaches peninsular.

This is P-40B 41-13297, a survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Well, I suppose I should say that they started with 41-13297 and wound up with this. I really don't know how much of it is actually '297', how much of it is from a couple other original airframes and how much is totally new. From what I've heard there's quite a bit of new construction in this bird, and some folks have even used the term 'new build'.
In the end, I don't really care if it is a 'new build' or not... or 50%, or 75% or whatever. As a P-40 nut I'd like to find out for sure exactly how much is original and how much is new, but all that truly matters to me personally is the fact that there is now another Curtiss P-40 flying. And this example is one of only two early models which are currently airworthy.
She's headed over to England to become part of The Fighter Collection at Duxford, but I hope that someday she'll come back to the USA to stay. And it would be super groovy to see her in the skies over her native Buffalo once again...

The first butterfly walk of the year and it ended up being much longer than anticipated owing to a path being closed. It was worthwhile as we saw several beautiful pearl bordered fritillaries.
Studio 26 quality of light assignment. The light kept changing this afternoon, from bright sun, to cloudy sun, to overcast. These butterflies perch low to the ground and they are often obscured by grass. When I took this one it was overcast so I added on camera flash (TTL, flash exp compensation -1.00) to give a little boost. Karen P, if that's not allowed for this assignment, I'll take it out of my set.
Caught this back-lit spiders web while on an early morning walk in Dorset last week.The morning dew catching the light and lighting it up,like little strings of pearls.............
Thanks for looking,

Barclay cannot contain his excitement over seeing the miracle of Christmas. Barclay and Pearl (and me) wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I made this with a photoshop program I have. Many layers are on here.
Some new pearls for me to play with :-)
