Photo Shoot at Union Park

Union Park Bridge Shoot

Had a photo shoot at Union Park a Metro Development Group community. Working with colemedia meant I had air cover while on the mission to shoot the Union Park Bridge entrance from multiple angles.

Thanks to Tyler Johnston the man behind colemedia for capturing the goings on with his little airship and expertly producing this little video on his custom built supercomputer.

Breaking in the Outboard.

Breaking in the Outboard

Yesterday afternoon Scott called and asked if I wanted to cruise around the bay  while the new lower unit on his outboard continued to break itself in. I was happy to oblige.

It was another lovely evening out there and the sky put on a real show of God's Glory!

All Pro Dad FKE at Raymond James Stadium FKE Tampa 2015

I had the privilege of photographing the Father Kid Experience produced by it the second event I have attended and I am really impressed with the fellowship I am witnessing at these events. In a culture in which fathers and men in general are portrayed as base, abusive, unfaithful, ignorant and all around fools it is encouraging to see these fathers lauded for putting their families first. The best part is seeing the kids realize just how cool it is to have their fathers. Here is what I have witnessed at these events that I do not see in the world.

  • Fathers encouraged to show their affection for their children publiclically.
  • Children thrilled to be wrestling and goofing around with their fathers.
  • Fathers given an opportunity to publically bless their children with words that affirm them. 
  • Children in turn writing down the character traits they admire in their fathers.
  • Respected sports and business figures in the community sharing wisdom about family. FKE Tampa 2015

Tyler had his new DJI Inspire on hand!

Bro-Fishing Once Again!


Another great day on the water in this brief life.

Psalm 39:4-7New Living Translation (NLT)

Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
    Remind me that my days are numbered—
    how fleeting my life is.
You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand.
    My entire lifetime is just a moment to you;
    at best, each of us is but a breath.” 
We are merely moving shadows,
    and all our busy rushing ends in nothing.
We heap up wealth,
    not knowing who will spend it.
And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
    My only hope is in you.

Afternoon and Evening Afloat!

An Afternoon and Evening Afloat

Decided on Thursday that Sunday afternoon would be spent bobbing the bay. A little fishing but mostly just surveying some old familiar haunts.

An Afternoon and Evening Afloat

It was beautiful weather with spectacular skies overhead.

Scott suggested we get some sustenance on the way back to the dock. We motored up to the Hula Bay and threaded our way through all the fancy people looking like a couple of commercial fisherman me with no shoes on. It was a mad house. I ordered a Hula burger and Scott a Blue cheese burger. Pricey but tasty. If you want to know what the Hula Bay is like it can be summed up by telling you they have a bathroom attendant.

We decided to chug over to Rat Island just a few hundred yards to the South where we had some elbow room and the noise of the revelers was just audible enough to remind us of how nice it was to be on our own private island!’

The food was really delicious! Here is the description of the burger I ravenously consumed: Hula Bay Burger Garlic teriyaki burger with honey dijon sauce, bacon, swiss and grilled pineapple.
