We finally had a few hours of sunshine today before the rain rolled in. So I took the new lens out to the Cresent Lake in St. Petersburg. It’s a little slice of banyan tree-lined heaven in the middle of the city.
I get didn’t get to shoot over the weekend as planned. Our plans changed at the last minute on Sunday, so my planned shooting while out didn’t work out. On top of that, it’s been cloudy and rainy.
Finally! I put it off long enough and pulled the trigger. Got a good deal on this little fella. UPS delivered it late in the day Wednesday, so I only snapped a few test shots around the house of some of the kids. I’ll have it out and about this weekend.
Hey everyone. I’ve been busy not taking pictures. Boo! But a few weeks back, I teamed up with a friend for a project. The header pic I snapped while we were setting up one of the shots for the series. It kind of gives you an idea of what was going on, behind the scenes, if you will.
This picture got accepted to a gallery group show that is happening this weekend. This is the one that got selected for jury at the other show I did.
I went to see Spoon on Monday night in Tampa. I love this band. Somehow, I have only seen them once before, and that was in late 2007. This was long overdue.
The gas station in my neighborhood inexplicably has weird and amazing cars at it all the time. Today, I was finally in a position to snap a picture.
As you may know, there were some deadly tornadoes in Texas over the weekend. 11 people died and a car dealership was wiped out.
Almost exactly one year ago, April 28th, 2016, I went to see The Joy Formidable play here in St. Petersburg. For a variety of reasons, I never went through and edited the pictures. It’s one of those things that if you don’t do it straight away, it gets moved to the back burner. But now, 363 or so days later, they are…
What say you, Oppo? Is this the beginning of the end for Force India? Will Mallya get extradited for trial or will England just let him stay?
This past Sunday was the annual Festivals Of Speed car show here in St. Petersburg. It was full of all sorts of shiny eye candy, and a few things I didn’t expect, or ever think I’d see in person.
I finally got out to take some pictures over the weekend, and turned it in to a work session for the new job. I’m almost done editing the last batch, so I’ll have a full gallery to post (hopefully) tomorrow. I’ll explain the new job thing with the gallery.
After having the most modest and minuscule amount of success with the high contrast black and white abstract/architectural photography, I’ve decided to move on from that and do something a bit more commercial.
I watched the CBS broadcast of the Pirelli World Challenge GT races from St. Petersburg last night. At the very end, they were showing random shots from the weekend as they were wrapping up the broadcast, and there I was. In case you can’t figure it out, I’m the dork on the far right.
Tonight there was yet another rocket launch, but this one has a fun story. And I take full credit for getting it on broadcast on television. Or at least that’s what I’ll tell myself.
This all started with a post on Facebook from my friend Alex. He put up a link to an article about a mobile pop-up oyster bar that had come to St. Petersburg. Some people were commenting that there was no was they’d eat oysters out of a van. I, the eternal optimist, was convinced that there was nothing shady about…
SpaceX launched the EchoStar XXIII communications satellite early this morning, 2:ooam EST. It was in the middle of the night and actually cold out, but I dragged the gear to my spot to watch it go up.
Sunday didn’t go as planned, but it couldn’t have gone any better. My alarm went off, but I decided I needed a little more sleep rather than Stadium Super Trucks. I was going to hang out in the Pirelli World Challenge paddock to take pictures of them prepping for the second GT race of the weekend. Because it was going…
Saturday at the races. Today I set out to take more pictures of cars on track, which I did. But I felt off my game. I got out of the zone. My timing was off when doing follow shots. I was getting my focus points wrong. The stupid catch fence was cramping my style. Good fences might make good neighbors, but they make…
