Rawlins, Wyoming

I'm in Rawlins, Wyoming tonight. Dove up today to be in position for tomorrows assignment.

We had several opportunities to stop along the way to do some shooting for ourselves. This is just one of the many shots I took with my G9. I also brought along my converted D70 to IR camera, got some pretty cool shots. More tomorrow. DT

Yoder's Forever

The best damn peanut butter cream pie in the world! I always look forward to going to Yoder's when visiting Sarasota, FL, just look at these pie's. They serve other fine food but it's the pie that keeps me coming back.

Earlier in the day we went to Myakka State Park, it's Florida's oldest and largest state park. The park is about a 1/2 hour just east of Sarasota. At the park, they have a canopy walkway and tower on a nature trail. You climb a short 35' tower, cross a suspension bridge and than up the taller tower to a height of 74'. From the tall tower you have a wonderful view of the park and a close view of all the vegetation.
Here are some of the photos I took today in the park. We'll be fishing later tonight. DT

Gone Fishing

We're in Sarasota, FL. It's great being on vacation! We bought some fishing poles at Kmart, rather than renting for the week, much cheaper in the long run.

Debbie was the big winner, she caught 5 of the eight, I got 2 and Chris 1. What a great day. Here's Chris on the bridge fishing, the new Ringling bridge in the background.

Below is the new Ringling bridge below. This bridge replaces an older draw bridge that was in place for years.

We also managed to provide a fish for a local bird waiting for a kind soul, I'm such a sucker. I'm having fun!

Image of the Day - 4/21/08

I'm sitting here in front of my computer editing images and thought I'd post one from my archives.

This photo was taken at the Whaley House in San Diego, CA. I was there on vacation with my family and some friends earlier this year. I shot this image with my Canon G9.

The Whaley House is a classic example of mid nineteenth century Greek Revival architecture.
