The Lighthouse

The lighthouse at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. This was a fun little outing. After climbing up nearly 90 feet of stairs I started to feel the spiral stairway swaying back and forth -- all of this right after the ranger was telling us how the builder made the walls a lot thinner than the designer specified. You can read more about the park at their official website.

Lighthouse Keeper

Infrared photo of the keeper's house for the lighthouse at Bill Baggs State Park on Key Biscayne. I'll have many more in this series from last weekend.

The Path

Sorry for not posting over the weekend. I was out most of the time and away from the computer. I think I got some really good shots in over the weekend so this week will be full of new stuff.

Yet another renovation project in Miami Beach.

10mph Police Chase in a... cart. Yep, that's me on MacArthur Causeway in a slow motion version of Bad Boys II's big car chase. (old self-portrait taken this March).

Head of the Creek Regatta

At least I think it was the Head of the Creek Regatta. I woke up and saw a bunch of people gathered on the bridge outside. I grabbed my camera and tele, and saw some rowing crews go by. I might have gotten some good shots from the bridge, but it was a lazy Sunday that didn't include leaving the apartment.

Another Miami Sunset

I hope you guys aren't getting sick of these sunset photos. This one is best viewed large on black (which BTW you can click the image in every post for a large version). Everyday there seems to be something different to capture, whether it's color, clouds, composition etc. I'm having fun working with the same subject since I've been mostly homebound for the past month with my injury.

If you want to see some different stuff I've done over the past 12 months check out my Flickr stuff.

So Fake

Nope, no bewbies in this one. Just a cross processed-composited-infrared-image of a residential building in Miami Beach.

This brings back a memory of my wife and I on a waverunner we had in Tampa. We were out at Clearwater Beach and she hit a wave going so fast I floating off the back and skipped off the water. The whole thing was like slow motion. These things turn on a dime too -- just ask Charles.

Doctor Visits

So I went to the doctor today for another followup on my broken collarbone. Good news is I don't need surgery. The bone has started to reattach, but with some overlap. I still can't raise my hand much higher than my head. I have to get full range of motion before my next visit or I will need a lot of therapy. The doctor gave me some exercises to do everyday. Once I get the full range of motion back I can start swinging a golf club. This is the longest I have been away from the golf course in almost 5 years. I did have to cancel a free golf trip to Scottsdale, Arizona in November. Scottsdale has been on my list of must visit golf destinations.

Anyway, here's the pic of the day. My nurse was showing off her tattoo for the infrared camera. I didn't bring any off camera flashes so I used an examination light for the side lighting.

The water color here never gets old. And the magic hour of sunlight doesn't hurt either.

Supertelephoto image of the sunset the other night. It was seconds before the sun disappeared from view.

I changed the image links so when you click the small images it takes you to a larger version on a dark background.

I got up this morning and saw the sun coming up and creating some incredible colors. I ran (as fast as I can move with a broken clavicle) to get my camera, but I had to swap the lens and the battery because of the time lapse thing I tried the day before.

Once I got setup, these are the colors I was able to capture. It was literally minutes between beautiful colors on the clouds, to what I shot, to just the sun beaming in your face and flat light on the clouds.

There was actually some nice surf out there today too. I sooo wish I was recovered enough to get out there and do some body boarding. Miami Beach is usually flat, but this morning it looked like some pretty organized knee to waist high waves.

Tomorrow I will post tonight's sunset photo. Not a photo of the sunset lighting up the sky nicely, but the sunball itself -- way cool.

Time Lapse Photography

I was doing some testing for a project at work last night and thought I'd post the results. 246 frames shot at the lowest setting on my Nikon D200 using the interval shooting mode set for 30 second intervals. I let it run for a few hours then edited it in Adobe Premiere, added a little finger tapping bassline I recorded a while back.

Sea of Palms

Lightning Hitting a Balcony?

It looks like this lightning bolt hit the balcony near the top of the building in the background. I hope no one was home.

Going Away for the Weekend

Since the last post was ultralights over the water, I thought ships and yachts on the water would be appropriate today. Shot from high up with a 300mm f/4 Nikkor lens.

Ultralight, Ultralow

We were down at the beach and this guy comes buzzing by right off the deck. I thought the Coast Guard helicopter goes by low. Too bad I only had my IR camera with me.

Miami Beach Community Church

Infrared photo of the Miami Beach Community Church on Lincoln Road. The church opened in 1921. My office is right near this church, and I grabbed this shot the first day I got my camera back from being modified for IR. Lincoln Road is a really neat place to hang out if you are in the area.
