Illinois junior Jacqueline Quade has been a star outside hitter since her freshman year. This year she got the national recognition she has deserved, being named first-team All-American, along with setter Jordyn Poulter (also a member of the US national team). Illinois also had a third-team All-American with middle blocker Ali Bastianelli. Well-deserved honors for a cohesive team that made it to the Final Four. Here Quade is finding a whole in the Louisville defense in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

S.O.S. (Snow on Snow)

S.O.S. (Snow on Snow)

I think this is a pine needle that had been blown off the tree in the background. Regardless of what it is, it provided me with a focal point for this shot, so I'm not going to complain. The wind was blowing and the sun was shining when I got home from work today, mix in the fresh powder we received overnight and you have yourself a pretty great combination to achieve sparkly bokeh. I was only out for a minute because the temperature has once again dropped below reasonable and to achieve this kind of shine in the bokeh you have to shoot into the wind and not away from it. I'm sure I could have achieved even more bokeh if I had put gloves and a hat on and went back outside but I was pretty okay with the simplicity of this shot. Hope everyone has had a good day.

Feeling the Heat

If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back? Steven Wright. We had another heat wave of near 40 deg C days and very hot nights. In contrast, the USA is experiencing extreme cold from the Polar Vortex. This tiny floret is wilting from the heat inside the Bendigo Conservatory.

Verheißungsvoll. Licht und Schatten. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Dropped and picked up. Promising - that was this blossom on our first night in South Africa on the way back to our hotel. View from the balcony over the bay to the lights of the small town of Gordon's Bay. I do not know what the flower is called – it had fallen from a large bush right in front of my feet and felt solid (almost waxy) and indestructible ;-) /// Abgefallen und aufgehoben. Vielversprechend - das war diese Blüte an unserem ersten Abend in Südafrika auf dem Weg zurück zu unserem Hotel. Blick vom Balkon über die Bucht auf die Lichter der kleinen Stadt Gordon's Bay. Ich weiß nicht, wie die Blüte heißt – sie war von einem großen Busch direkt vor meine Füße gefallen und fühlte sich fest (fast wie Wachs) und unzerstörbar an ;-) * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * #CrazyTuesday! / #Bokeh

032*/365/2019 :: Huat /ˈhwʌtː/

Telok Kurau, Kembangan, Singapore ------ Huat /ˈhwʌtː/ An expression widely used to wish oneself prosperity especially in Singapore and Malaysia. ------ The last round having the similar shot was 2 years ago when Lunar New Year around the corner, the tasks list goes on especially the buying the cookies and other related stuff. This year found out the cookies with the big character printed on the box, this character represents prosper, a phrase commonly used to welcome prosperity. Spring cleaning, cookies preparation, packing and etc, these are the tasks could have the need to begin 3 o 4 weeks before we go back to our homeland. It is a passed-down tradition almost every parent to have their children reunion during this very festive season... Some of my friends will be leaving Singapore back to Malaysia (with their respective states) for the Chinese great festive season celebration. Wishing those who are driving hope you have vehicle service in tip-top condition especially tyres (pressure pump including the spare tyres), engine oil, coolant and other important parts. Drive safe and be vigilant on the road condition, try to follow within the speed limit given and. For those who took flight and coaches, wishing you have a smooth and great journey and reaching destination safe too. Lastly, wishing everyone having a great time with loves one and most importantly stay safe and sound. ---- You must see this on large View On White and View On Black
