Beautiful fall photos Mac. Reminds me of when I used to go fishing with my Paternal grandparents when I was young. I fished with cane pole and wound up getting smacked in the face by more fish than I was able to land, as the fist would fall off after smacking me in the face. But, I was happy that they returned to the water to live another day. The fun part was catching the fish. I guess my punishment for catching them was the smack in the face. (grin)

Your photos are beautiful - caused me to have memory pangs of the wonderful times I enjoyed at my all-year lakeside home.  I take note of the accessory trolling motor on that boat.  I actually did not enjoy trolling, although it was the way I once caught a muskie on another lake.  I grew up on and always preferred still fishing with live bait, and a little casting with lures/spoons in between.

Gsquared
7.3.1  Gsquared  replied to  Buzz of the Orient @7.3    one week ago

Their purpose is decorative, but they were also built as a tribute by the artist, Simon Rodia, an Italian immigrant, to his adopted country, the U.S.  They are described as:  " perhaps the nation's best known work of folk art sculpture".

The story of Simon Rodia and his Towers is very interesting:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watts_Towers

8.4  Buzz of the Orient  replied to  Kavika @8    one week ago

About Kavika's tree photo - One of the reasons that tree has survived so long is because it was not suitable for lumber, and was therefore ignored by the loggers who long ago devstated many forests.  Back then there was no such thing as "reforestation".

What is the original image you had posted?

One of them was my new Mayan Queen that I reposted, but, the others are ones that I had posted before and they did not turn into the default hat. This is not the first time this has happened, and the same thing happened in Kavika's Anishinaabe group as well. 

A few of the artwork here are still showing properly, but, they were post at a more recent time. 

Here are the ones that have changed;

Raven Wing
12.3.4  Raven Wing  replied to  Buzz of the Orient @12.3.1    22 hours ago

Yes. The only thing different is the time that I posted them. The ones that have changed were posted before the ones that have not changed yet. 

And the one of the Mayan Queen that I also posted in the Anishinabe group also changed into the hat, and I posted that about the same time I did the one to this group.

Can OVALtine be part of a SQUARE meal? Well-ROUNDED individuals question that. Either way, if you don't drink too much of it, you can stay in SHAPE (but don't drink it if it goes FLAT).

Any questions? 

Or, have I indulged in CIRCULAR logic?

The fleur de lis she is holding is a French symbol.  What is the significance of the harp headdress?  That is one very beautiful frame for a beautiful woman image.  Were the Mayans matriarchal?

 
 
 
Raven Wing
17.1.1  Raven Wing  replied to  Buzz of the Orient @17.1    6 days ago

No...they were not matriarchal. They had Kings, but, they had their Queens.

The harp is sitting behind her chair and the decorative plant behind her.

The fleur de lis......yeah....but I thought it looked nice there. Call it artists leeway. (grin)

The bird is a Magpie; wondering if there's something about its behavior that may attribute to its iconography; among other things, it is widely considered one of the most intelligent animals in the world and one of only a few non-mammal species able to recognize itself in a mirror test.

That looka like a "road less travelled" but certainly should be during Autumn leaves.  I was just wondering, I don't think the song "Autumn Leaves" would sound so beautiful if its wording was "fall leaves".

True, it would be cacophonous rather than unified and smoothly transitioned.

I was thinking it could mean "hand-made" or "man-made" i.e. creative.

Thanks for the idea Mac. I may try my luck at that as well. If I get it done, I take a picture and post it the group. But, I can tell it will take a while to get it done. What would you suggest for a color for the bonding? Silver, gold, black, or something else? I've only done one stained glass before but it was not as intricate as this would be.

The Eagle was actually soaring above a lake in the Pocono Mountains. I've been photographing the same pair of eagles for several years. There's an old, dead tree they roost on and I can sometimes anticipate when one is about to take off … which makes shots like the one above a bit easier to capture.

A truly beautiful pair Mac. They look very healthy, and their coloring is awesome. Do they live in their tree year round?
