Joined January 19th, 2010


My name is Brenda Nelson and I live in Mountain Home, Arkansas, USA. My husband Larry ("lgnelson" on PB) and I have been married for 44 years - with 2 grown children (plus their spouses) and 5 beautiful grandchildren (3 girls and 2 boys). I'm a Christian homemaker, who also did a morning radio program for 34 years - 3 hours a day of news, music and daily interviews. (Thus, the name "DJ Nana"). However, in June 2009, my husband and I both retired! And we quickly discovered that life is really just beginning!

Larry and I enjoy travelling and playing golf, singing together (we met in a college music group), riding our motorcycle across the country, and doing projects that make a difference in the world through groups like Rotary International, World Vision, and our church.

I hope that God allows us many more years to enjoy each other and His beautiful creation - carrying our golf clubs and cameras! I can't wait for the next great "shot"!

An amazing set, Agi. It's been far too long since I've come to "visit" you here on PB!
Hi Brenda! So goid to see you visiting! It has been a busy period for me, too, much less time to spend on PB, but even if I do not get the chance to comment, i do follow sour travels here and on Facebook, as well! Glad to see you enjoying your retirement!

I choose the first one because of the composition and the clarity. Are you gonna paint it????
Actually that is what I answered to marilynx's comment. Great minds think alike :)
Not sure if I will paint this actual photograph . But I am looking for an inspiration to paint some flowers again.

This is an awesome shot, Ken! The use of fabric for the background is a nice touch.
My grandfather's scissors, and his old ironing table, lol

I always like the feeling that mist/fog can add to an image, especially #11 & 14. I would never have dreamed that it would be cold there!
Thick foggy weather accompanied by drizzling rain… in Dubai, mercury was hovering in 110F, so we couldn't have asked for more :)

What an adventure for you! It seems odd to see street lights in what appears to be "the middle of nowhere"! I interviewed Jamie Clarke from Canada who crossed "The Empty Quarter" of Arabia on foot and camel - the fir...
"In 1999 Jamie became the first Westerner to cross the Empty Quarter of Arabia in fifty years. His team of six (including three Bedouin) spent 40 days crossing the desert with a caravan of 13 camels." - that's some effort, Brenda. For my trip, risk was that most part of the distance was two-way road with no street lights. And vehicles were speeding at 160Kmph. So overtaking vehicles, especially heavy trucks was quite risky as it was difficult to judge the speed of the vehicles coming from opposite direction. Otherwise roads were pretty good.

You did an excellent job capturing these pairs from a distance. I love the motion in #4 and 10, plus the scene in the last one.
Thank you !!

I really like the second one - a field of cattle always stirs something in me! Congrats on the new location for your kiosk.
Thanks Brenda. The cattle will be going back to their farm later this month so I shall have to make sure I get some more photos of them before then!
