Sun N Fun 2009 Airshow

Sun N Fun 2009 Photos
This year I was able to attend Sun N Fun Fly-In and Air Show in Lakeland Florida. My client and friend, Dan Ritter, flew us down in his Barron twin engine airplane. That turned a 7 hour drive into a 2 hour flight. I could get used to this.

I was there to take as many photos as possible of airplanes, especially war birds. I met up with an ace aviation photographer, Jo Hunter, who was kind enough to share some of her vast knowledge of aviation photography with me. She is definitely worth checking out at www.futurshox.net.

To view my photos check out my Sun N Fun Photo Gallery.

Happy Birthday Justinas

You only turn 29 a few times in your life, so my friend Justinas decided to celebrate his birthday in fine Russian fashion. It seems that he and many of his friends lived in countries that once were part of the USSR. They are glad to be in America, but they get nostalgic for their comrades, the crazy food and customs. I have to say, it was a lot of fun.

As I present, I made him a KGB photo ID. This might help him get out of speeding tickets or it could get him arrested. We'll just have to wait and see. Justinas is a gifted photographer too. You can check out his work at www.EuroFotoVideo.com.

Naked Cowboy Seen in New Orleans

The last time I was in NYC, I saw the naked cowboy in Times Square strumming a guitar and making a racket. I would not exactly call this guy a serious musician, but he got lots of attention. Now imagine my surprise to see this same guy in New Orleans walking around with a MTV crew following his hijinks. He was practically begging young ladies to "grab his butt" as he did vice versa. What a gig.

Easter Bunny Spotted in New Orleans

If you walk the streets of New Orleans long enough, you are bound to see something strange. In this case, I saw what could very well be THE Easter Bunny. Luckily I was able to fire off a frame as he sped by on his bicycle. Or, maybe this could be some kind of rabbit super hero. Who knows?
