I went to Ft. De Soto today. Jill (Jill's Junk)and Mike (MikeJonesPhoto) were there shooting a wedding. You don't look comfortable in a suit, Mike.

Explored (10/07/11) #430.

I took this capture of the beautiful waterway and surrounding area from the Belleair Causeway in Belleair Bluffs, Florida.

The recent storms washed most of the sand away here and left pebbles and rocks.

I just bought a new monitor. 24 inches. Big! Not sure I like it though. I have to calibrate it and then decide. I haven't been out much recently, so nothing to post. I took this a couple weeks ago. I hope it looks OK. I can't tell for sure on the new monitor. This is a sunset shot and I did a "pseudo-hdr" from one RAW file.

 

From Time magazine:

"You gotta feel for José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. Here the Spanish prime minister is only four months from an end to his government's strained relations with that of President George W. Bush and blam! — along comes John McCain to suggest the next four years might not be any better. During an interview in Miami earlier this week with Spanish-language station Union Radio, a reporter asked McCain whether, if elected, he would receive Zapatero in the White House. McCain answered, "Honestly, I have to analyze our relationships, situations, and priorities, but I can assure you that I will establish closer relationships with our friends, and I will stand up to those who want to harm the United States."

Ouch. The question about Zapatero, clearly framed by the reporter as a question about Spain, came after inquiries on Venezuela, Bolivia, and Cuba. As a result, much of the Spanish press has decided that the Republican candidate, who hails himself as the experienced foreign policy choice in this election, confused Spain — a NATO member and key ally in the fight against terrorism — with one of those troublesome Latin American states. That was certainly the interviewer's impression, for she followed up with a gentle reminder that Spain was a country in Europe. As Spanish newspaper El País put it, "In the best-case scenario, [his answer] demonstrates his ignorance with respect to Zapatero."

if the clouds are behaving most of the times this is what you will see a beautiful Florida sunset show. its amazing that these shows are never the same, even from the same spot. don't forget to click below

Look closely at this juvenile gator's back. It is a dragonfly taking a ride. Regrettably, my 200mm was the best I could do. I was on Lake Cooper sitting on the dock of a friend when approximately 40 yards away the gator appeared. He stayed for awhile then went into the Cypress wetlands on the north side of the lake.

So I was on my way home from work yesterday when I saw some very cool looking clouds. By the time I got home, the cool clouds were almost entirely engulfed by more ominous looking typical Florida afternoon storm clouds. Florida skies are awesome!

I took this photo when I was down in Florida this winter. This is a HDR (High Dynamic Range) photo, which is produced by combining 3 exposures into one. I use a program called Photomatix to do this. I have done a couple of YouTube video tutorials that will show you how I processed this picture. www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLpeWcR0HQ8 and www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z36pWtnNzyU

Front yard looking West..

This is my stage for beautiful sky shots.....

Unless I drive 3 miles to the beach...

 

It is one mile to the beach if we could drive straight west...but we drive south and then west to get there...

Explore...2/16/08. Taken on our last night of vacation. We were all hanging out in our friends yard when we looked west and saw this. 4 of us jumped on 4 wheelers with 2 cameras and drove into the Orange Grove to get shots of this amazing sunset. If you look at the far end of the road you'll see dust from one of the 4 wheelers. I shot this from the drivers seat of a Yamaha.

Somewhere along the line the EXIF data got stripped. Taken with a Canon XSi. Exposure unknown. A long exposure, no doubt. Lots of noise. Used a plug-in to fix it.and Photoshop to erase one of the pole lights.

This was actually taken a few months ago. I haven't had a chance to do any photography recently and haven't posted much. I've been trying to comment on 5 or ten of your postings everyday though.

 

The Presidential debate was last night. McCain intentionally distorted Obama's record and his position on various issues numerous times, and called Obama naive about 20 times. I wanted Obama to fight back. I wanted him to say, :"You know what's naive? Repeating the same policies as George Bush and expecting different results.That 's naive!" I would have said that, but I would have said ""You know what's naive? Repeating the same policies as George Bush and expecting different results, Bozo," Yes, I would have lost my temper, and I guess that's why I don't make a very good candidate for President. I admire Obama for reacting coolly and keeping his head while McCain behaved badly and disingenuously. Obama is a nice guy, a good guy. I would have walked over and boxed McCain's ears. McCain is a little.mean, angry old man and has run a despicable campaign. Sound like Presidential material to you?

This is a Winter evening... In Florida!

It's a warm one!

The way Thursday began.

This was my reward for being up early this morning.

Looking East over Lake Emerald, in Oakland Park, Florida -US- near Fort Lauderdale.

This is one of a family of manatees in the wild at the Crystal River in Florida. Picture was with a digital Ixus compact camera in an underwater housing. Taken whilst snorkelling amongst the manatees.

I assume this was takenin Florida, but I don't have any details about where, or who the other people were.

 

The only thing I can say definitely is that I had not been born at the time this photo was taken. I'm guessing that my mother was about one month pregnant with me ... but that's just a guess.

 

**********************************

 

All of the photos in this album are “originals” from the period when I was an infant in the mid-1940s — i.e., the period before I lived in Omaha, Riverside, Roswell, New York, Ft. Worth, and Denver (photos of which you may have seen already in my Flickr archives).

 

Before I get into the details, let me make a strong request — if you’re looking at these photos, and if you are getting any enjoyment at all of this brief look at some mundane Americana from 70+ years ago: find a similar episode in your own life, and write it down. Gather the pictures, clean them up, and upload them somewhere on the Internet where they can be found. Trust me: there will come a day when the only person on the planet who actually experienced those events is you. Your own memories may be fuzzy and incomplete; but they will be invaluable to your friends and family members, and to many generations of your descendants.

 

My own story changes dramatically at this point: the man I’ve presented as my Dad in previous Flickr albums, Ray Yourdon, was actually my stepfather. My birth parents grew up in Washington DC, married, and moved to Florida in the early days of World War II. My birth father worked as a flight instructor for the Air Force, and I was born on an Air Force base near Ft. Walton Beach, in the panhandle section of Florida (which you can read about here, if you’re interested: www.eglin.af.mil )

 

Some time after that, my parents divorced and my mother moved back to Washington with me, to live with her mother. After a bitter custody battle over me (so I’ve been told), I didn’t see my birth-father again until I was 30—at which point I was surprised to learn that I had three more half-sisters, in addition to the two I had grown up with (i.e., both my mother and my birth-father had remarried after they got divorced from each other). But that’s another story, with another set of photos ...

 

Meanwhile, my mother worked as a secretary in the Pentagon as the war wound down, and when my stepfather ended up in Washington toward the end of his tour of duty in the Navy, they met, and married, and moved to Denver to begin a new life … chapters of which you’ve been seeing in these Flickr albums during the last several weeks.

 

So the photos in this album are from my birth in Florida through the first year or so of my childhood in Washington — uploaded in reverse chronological order, starting in 1945. I haven’t written any details, because I have no conscious memory of what was happening at the time; and at this point, all of my parents, step-parents, and grandparents are gone. Yes, I do have five wonderful sisters, all of whom share various memories with me; but I’m the oldest of the brood, so I have no siblings with first-hand information about what I was doing for the first year or two of my life.

 

All I have are the photos that you see here. But they do tell a story, and that’s why I think it’s so important that you track down all of your own photos and preserve them somewhere for the generations who will follow after you.

I will definitely be back to this location when the conditions are better for shooting. Along with the clouds, I had all kinds of junk and spots on the sensor of my camera I only discovered after an hour of shooting. Also need less wind to leverage the amazing reflections.

This was hanging on the dock at the Everglades preserve. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to share it my friends. For my friends in other counties it says "No Fishing This Dock, These fish are pets"...:))

Male Carolina Spreadwing (Lestes vidua) - Right fork of the White Trail, Hal Scott Regional Preserve, Wedgefield, East Orange County, Florida

 

This male made life easy by perching in the middle of the trail on a stiff blade of grass. His mate, on the other hand, perched on a blade of grass in the water giving me a much less complicated BG.

The full moon set in the west as the sun rose in the east. This photo was taken at The Jones/Hungryland Wildlife & Environmental Area in western Martin County, Florida.

One of those chilly days on the beach, I was however, surprised to see quite a few brave souls in the water. Wishing all of my American Contacts a very happy thanksgiving. Hope you have an awesome day...... do not eat too much! Enjoy. Off to catch up with everyone.
