Happy January 109th!
The reaction I get these days when I tell people I do video…”You do video?!” Yes, I do video. It’s ironic that most people think of me as a still photographer these days when video is actually how this all got started. So for those that may have forgotten that I do video, here’s a reminder.
Words aren’t really even necessary, are they?
It’s taken several trips to the beach to get him used to it, but now he absolutely loves running up and down the beach, through the water chasing after any wildlife that moves. Today he discovered the little sand crabs.
Alright, so here’s the obligatory Spring Break photo…
I have so much more respect for the RC community now that I’ve had a chance to fly with some of them. And I’m talking strictly RC, not the new wave of folks who’ve purchased drones and are flying them around referring to themselves as RC folks. I’m talking about the RC enthusiasts that go way back to flying with gas-powered craft. I’ll equate it to talking with photographers who used to shoot on film and develop their own images. These RC guys (and gals) were around long before we started slapping FPV cameras on the bottom of multi-rotors. I only spent about 45 minutes around this group in Florida and gained a lot of respect. It was really cool to watch and listen as they literally flew circles around me (I asked them to – made for better images). For the record I am NOT an RC guy. I’m just a photographer that uses an aerial platform. I have so much to learn.
This one has cover photo written all over it. Or I might hang it on the wall. Either way I really like how it turned out.
Enjoying some quality time at the beach. I figured I’d shoot the sunrise a little differently this morning.
It’s been a while since I did a video here so enjoy.
I wonder when I’ll get past the nervous feeling I get when I’m flying over water. Still, it makes for some awesome footage.
With it being almost a year since the demise of the local ABC affiliate in Winchester, I’m thankful that I was able to remain in that area and that my family was supportive as I made the transition into doing what I enjoy doing. It’s been somewhat of a bumpy ride and it’s certainly not over yet, but I’m thankful that they came with me.
So, it’s been quite a while since I’ve actually been at home for the 4th of July. I completely forgot that the fireworks were set off last night. Oh well. No biggie.
I posted an image previously from this lightning storm, but this was what was happening over the ocean in the other direction. Pretty crazy considering that this was taken between 10 and 11 pm. Our own little pre-4th fireworks show.
So after this two-week vacation, our next 1-week vacation is going to feel way too short – OR – all our vacations from now on will have to be at least 2 weeks long!
Yeah, I know that’s not the title, but that’s not what I’m going for here. With so much attention to the sunRISES lately, I needed to turn around and give some time to the sunSET.
We’ve renamed the Florida state nickname to the “Funshine” state. Just so you know. That is all.
Yeah, it wasn’t that impressive, but I wonder if its big brother is still lurking…
Sponges grow in the ocean. That just ‘gets’ me. I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be if that didn’t happen.

So at what point does the urge to dig a hole at the beach cease to exist? I think I’ll hold on to that one for a while.
Works every time…
And that’s how you pack for a two-week vacation to the beach.
