Creek flowing at Susquehanna State Park Maryland.Long exposure!


These Rhodys were blooming in the greenhouse a month ahead of their scheduled show. A welcome sight on a cold February day. I was fascinated to see the buds in different stages of bloom. The petals looked as if they were made of silk.


Best wishes for a happy Valentine's Day weekend, my friends!

The Lonaconing Silk Mill is located in Maryland close to the West Virginia border. This was a four hour drive, but worth it. The Mill closed in 1957, everything that was in the building, is still there. It is the last standing silk mill in the country.


The owner is a really nice guy and he is more than happy to give you some history of the mill. If the photos, I am going to post in the next couple of days, gives you a reason to go see it in person, feel free to send me a message. I will be more than happy to give you his contact info.

I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may - light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful.

Early a.m. on the web.

Shot with the AF Nikkor 50mm f1.8 D, this is a surprisingly excellent lens for one so relatively inexpensive. I've had it in my bag for years but have never really used it very much - teaming it up with extension tubes has been something of a revelation, when shot wide open.

Between you and me there is a love like silk: effortless. It catches in the wind and is carried onward, billowing out with a gentle caress. It is all the shades of candlelight with the scent of sugar. You and I fall in to place, stitched together at the seams, never to tear apart.

About this sound in ancient times meaning 'Blazing Beacon') is a county-level city (pop. 187,578 (2000)) in northwestern Gansu province, Western China. It was a major stop on the ancient Silk Road. It was also known at times as Shāzhōu (沙州), or 'City of Sands',[1] "or Dukhan as the Turkis call it."[2] It is best known for the nearby Dunhuang Caves.


Administratively, the county-level city of Dunhuang is part of the prefecture-level city of Jiuquan.


It is situated in a rich oasis containing Crescent Lake and Mingsha Shan (鸣沙山, meaning "Singing-Sand Mountain"). Mingsha Shan is named after the sound of the wind whipping off the dunes, the singing sand phenomenon.


It commands a strategic position at the crossroads of the ancient Southern Silk Route and the main road leading from India via Lhasa to Mongolia and Southern Siberia,[1] as well as controlling the entrance to the narrow Hexi Corridor which led straight to the heart of the north Chinese plains and the ancient capitals of Chang'an (today known as Xi'an) and Luoyang.[3]

i'm getting the knitting bug again.... got all my stuff out last night, along with my favorite needles (they're maple, i think). now i just need to come up with something to make (why is that always the hardest part for me?... ha). :-)


Update: Thanks for all the suggestions. I found a really cute pattern for a "Braided Cable Headwarmer/Earwarmer", so I'm going to give that a try (and yes, I'll share some status photos for those who wanted to see what I'm making). Socks will be next after the earwarmer... still searching for patterns. :-)


i think this one needs to be viewed on black.
