Another stunning photograph. I don't know how you do it so consistently!

JAL said...

So beautiful! TY

mc said...

I am FOURTEEN FEET TALL.

mmmm...dunno...

Nope, I have concluded that I am not into the whole exaggerate thing. Though I gave it a shot.

The fall bodes well for Mrs. Meade's shutterbuggery. What with the colors and all, you know ;)

Pretty pic there.

From our helpful friends in Germany:

America Has Become Too European

Concerning America's economic and political problems:

What should be done? It would be more intelligent to repair the elevator which helped the US rise from the bottom of the heap to the top, instead of trying to transplant a European style of operating onto American soil. Either the US follows the American Way -- an approach characterized by a shared history, economic success and constant progress -- or the US will have to adjust itself to the "European" way, sparking economic and social tensions in the process.

If the US manages to revert to its former ways, there is potential for hope. If not, the American age will have really come to an end.


It's a timely and insightful piece, without a single bit of exaggeration.

I just now made the best goddamn refritos in the whole world and my steak is cooked to perfection. Plus you will never ever ever have saffron rice this good. Then Jesus appeared in spirit form and said, "that's the best meal I ever saw."

HT said...

Mexican petunia. Nice.

There are some ways to encourage more flowers.

HT said...

I just watched High Plains Drifter.

Wow

Revenant said...

I just watched High Plains Drifter.

A fine motion picture.

Freeman Hunt said...

I'm jealous of HT. Great movie.

Lightning storms were here, so no movies for me tonight.

Okay, I'll exaggerate: over 75% of adult women are completely hairless, and ... oh wait, that's (tragically) not an exaggeration at all. If anything it's an understatement.

Nice garden.

Fred4Pres said...

I had to do some work tonight. But I have the Sopranos on DVD and have been working through it show by show. I love the commentary.

deborah said...

No spoilers!

I've not watched it, but has anyone seen Six Feet Under?

Also, Chip, you da bomb, baby.

Wig sales must be through the roof!

Three best Eastwood flicks, I mean, motion pictures:

(in no particular order)

Dirty Harry
Outlaw Jose Wales
Good, Bad, and the Ugly

(soft spot for Heartbreak Ridge)

Revenant said...

I'd be hard-pressed to think of my three favorite Eastwood movies. His "good movie" count exceeds that of anyone else in Hollywood, I think.

deborah said...

Quite so, Revenant.

Mosque Investor Was Terror Contributor
.

How does a "terror contributor" allowed to continue to contribute to anything?

Puzzling.

edutcher said...

That one is very nice. Agree with lucid and mc regarding the approaching autumn and Mrs. Meade's "shutterbuggery".

(Is that salacious or sexy?)

(Or both?)

PS Never could get into Eastwood after "Rawhide". Maybe it's because he made such a thing about dissing it, particularly since a lot of Rowdy Yates is in everything he did afterward.

Clint's best:

Bronco Billy
Josie Wales
Unforgiven
Gran Torino

Clyde said...

Now that is really pretty!

Pogo said...

Gran Torino was great.

I saw Harry Brown a coupla days ago, and will watch it again this weekend. Gran Torino in England; very similar themes.

Michael Caine, the lead said:
" "it's not a violent film. It's a film about violence, which is a very different thing ... This is real violence that takes place every night, all day long, on the streets of our cities. We're all responsible. It's the breakup of family life. It's the breakup of education. It's the government. It's the class system. It's the benefits system. And it's drugs, drugs, drugs, drugs. When I was young, I lived their life and I was the same as them -- but no drugs. We drank a couple of beer and we'd have a fight and go home.""

LarsPorsena said...

@Pogo:

In the same vein, keep your eye out for Robert Duvall's "Get Low".

Pogo said...

@LarsPorsena:

Thx; I had never heard of that film.
Did it just get released?

LarsPorsena said...

@Pogo: Several weeks ago but limited.
See reviews on "Rotten Tomatoes". I'm aiming for it this weekend.

HDHouse said...

how about a rhapsody in blue?

Linda Seebach said...

What a stunning jigsaw puzzle that would make!

AJ Lynch said...

You might consider seting up a website where you people could buy your photos. I'd buy this one if the seller arranged for framing etc.

Or perhaps check with art.com and see if they would broker, sell and frame your good pics to their customers.

I immediately thought of the great Elton John song.
