Jungle Prada Pier

I grew up in St. Petersburg just a couple blocks
from Boca Ciega Bay. This is the place my dad
used to launch our boat from and where I would
fish when we wouldn't be out in the boat. It is
still very peaceful and you can still see the boats
coming and going - some 45 years later.....

Seize the day!
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may.....

LOOK at things different today!
Stand on your car!
Tilt your head at an angle for 2 hours...

Up early!

On the weekends I get up real early,
make some coffee and head off before
dawn to catch the beautiful sunrises
we enjoy here! This Sunday Linda
decided to come with me and
it was a little too cold for her, but I
did get her out for a few shots!

Old School!

Now here is one to make you laugh!
My brother cleaned out an old shed
of his and found this old poster of me
from over 33 years ago! Tom brings
it to Florida and Steve (Camera Hutt)
makes me an 8 x 10 - I scanned it
and here it is.... That's me in the air
with all the BLACK hair - boy, I'd like
to have that back!!!

Charlie turns 27 today! If you could custom
order a son, he would be just like Charlie! I
have no idea why our Lord blessed me with
a son like this, but I appreciate it! He is currently
in Iraq with the US Army Special Forces, but
is due to fly out in 14 days! Happy Birthday son!
