Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Out of DC for the latest snow/crapy weather.  We’re down in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to watch my son, JP, play in the Mingo Bay Baseball Classic.  Very cold here too, but no snow.  🙂




A Day at the DC Zoo

A Day at the DC Zoo

We’ve lived in northern Virginia for over 10 years, and I’d only been to the DC Zoo once prior to today. A coworker and I decided to head over Sunday morning to try out luck photographing the animals. I didn’t have the best of luck. In my defense, the animals don’t simply pose on command. You have to be very patient and hope that when something interesting happens, you are in the right place with your camera pointed in that direction. The tricky thing about shooting at the zoo is that what would otherwise be a great shot, more often that not, captures a fence, man-made pond, or something concrete which makes the animal look like … it’s in the zoo.

Here’s the King of the DC Zoo.

iPhone Friday: Older Pics

I was searching through all the photos on my iPhone a couple of days ago and found a few I had forgotten about.  I love the ability to capture images with my phone, but the best part is to always have a photo album with me.

This is my son JP helping me replace the leaf-springs on my 66 Ford Mustang over a year ago.

ImageI’m not sure when I took this picture of the flags in front of Union Station in DC.
