Pictures for Pam, Day 128: Thanks Everyone!

Pictures for Pam, Day 128: Thanks Everyone!
(+5 insets!) (please view large!) :)

I've just returned from a chilly but bright and sunny morning walk and my body is ticking with energy coursing through my veins. How vitalizing it is to get some invigorating exercise at the beginning of the day. It really makes me feel motivated and ambitious. After all, I've done something so good for my health and well-being at the very start. What better way to set yourself up for a series of wins, progress, achievements and successes?! Besides all of that, getting outside when the world is waking up around you is a wondrous experience with the twittering of birds and their songs and calls heard from near and far. It is a joy I missed out on for so many years. How lovely to get up early enough to be immersed in this daily marvel.

Sitting down at my computer, I hop onto ipernity and check out the Explore section. Who is showcasing today?! Gazing at the selection of 27 pictures on the front page, I sit in wonder. So much talent. Such a vast variety of photography. The creativity boggles the mind. Pictures from literally all over the world, in all types of formats, from a dizzying variety of cameras. Exquisite images from seasoned professionals and from budding talent as well. Some have such a wonderful, recognizable style that you can tell who took the picture without glancing at the name. Others are unique and exciting and beg for a click so you can see what other pictures they've taken. Inspiration drips from the page.

How grand to be part of it all. The community at ipernity is incredible. Wonderful, warm, intelligent folk who, like the pictures on Explore, cover a vast range of personalities and interests. Photographers can be very quirky and plenty of us spurn society for a gamut of reasons. But here on ipernity we can reach out and make friends. Isn't that wonderful. In my "real" life, the "in-person" friends I have fit onto one hand, perhaps two if I include family. But online, my friends and acquaintances number much closer to 100 or more! What a difference! In "real life" I am shy and very wary of people, but online I am extremely friendly and gregarious. Isn't it all so very interesting? I am extremely grateful to have the chance to be friends with people from all over the world, all walks of life, and who allow me the chance to know them. It is an honor and a true gift and I thank you all for allowing me to be part of this fine platform! *BIG HUGS TO ALL OF YOU!*

Today happens to be St. Patrick's Day so I'm posting a picture that's very green! This fern was photographed in San Francisco a couple of years ago. Steve and I walked through part of Golden Gate Park to get to the Conservatory of Flowers' dahlia exhibit and on the way we stopped to take pictures of some of the fabulous plants found there. Ferns of many kinds grow everywhere and this one did not miss my gaze. (I'm also including some other green images for you to enjoy!)

Pam, isn't it wonderful to be a part of this amazing group of people?! We are so lucky. And because of ipernity, we got the chance to meet…how cool is that?! :) Anyhow, I thought it would be fun to find a nice green picture on your stream and decided on a wonderful picture of a Ruby Throated Hummingbird sitting in a vibrant green oak tree. What a beautiful bird with her iridescent green feathers! It really is fun doing searches in your photo stream--it shows me how few I've actually seen and then I get the prize of appreciating them!

Thank you for your lovely comment about my flower pictures! I'm so happy to read that you have been able to see a few of the flowers that are blooming for you now. I hope you can find great joy in these pretty spring sightings…one day at a time my dear! *BIG HUGS*

I could easily make all of these my faves, but I'll just have to settle for this one, which is just exquisite! Beautifully captured cleverly using the depth of field to start off really sharp and defined and fading gently off into a wonderful out-of-focus blur!

I love all the PiPs, but I have to single out the first, which is so cleverly composed to show off the beautiful curves and lines of the leaf.

Thanks for sharing these inspiring images Janet. :-)

This is my kind of photo, Janet. Love taking photos of little details like this and seeing the details enlarged on a computer screen. Would have a hard time picking a favorite (even the photo of the bead is wonderful), but I think the fern wins. When they are first uncurling in the spring, they are so very beautiful. Hope you get a chance to see the Bighorns and photograph them.

Did you know that the little frog you've photographed can change color? They do so rather slowly but can change from a green to a tan, depending on the background. It's a Pacific Tree Frog if I am not mistaken (should look at the title of your photo, I guess). Now I did look and noticed that you already know about their color change. They are probably still hibernating here like everything else.

We had a really bad experience with Air BnB in Brisbane. Arrived and found the owner's son and friends living in the place. They quickly left, but the place was filthy and the beds had been used. Then, a few days later we had someone wandering around in the small back yard (fenced) at about 2 am. Scared the daylights out of the girls who were sitting up and talking. By the we called, however, he was gone.

Sorry for your bad experience at the cheese festival. We rarely go to events where we have to pay since they are seldom worth the money, in our experience. I'm very envious of the cheeses, though and will have to see if I can find that blue. Love Stilton and Gorgonzola and other blue cheeses, though my kids refer to them as "dirty socks" cheese. Have a wedge of Gorgonzola in the fridge at the moment.

Had to laugh at your description of yourself. You certainly come across on line as one of the most outgoing people I've ever met. Laughed too at the fact that Steve goes on and on about the beauty of places like Banff. I do the same and bore my wife out of her mind. Must have said how beautiful the Canadian mountains were a thousand times, even though I think see go tit the first time.

Agree with you about Ipernity. It's hard to find a bad photo on the site and there is so much to learn from others. I echo your thanks to to the community and to those who have worked so hard to keep it going.

What incredible photos Janet - I love every one of them - I agree with Ron that the unfurling fern does look superb, but I think my favourite is the first PiP. What plant is that? I sort of recognise it, it's the stem with the leaves coming off it. Your photos are just amazing and it is extremely difficult to prefer one over the other.

I was really surprised to read that in "real life" you are very shy - as Ron says - I feel that you are very outgoing, but it is easy to let yourself be free when you are behind a computer screen isn't it? I love the people I've met here on Ipernity - it all started on 360, then Multiply and now Ipernity - and I've met some amazing people on here. They all live in different countries and even those who don't speak English, I've managed to write to them with the help of the Translation button. What an incredible thing eh? I sometimes look at the photos on here and am really surprised that some of them aren't in National Geographic - they are so amazing.
