OK, I admit it. My name is Paul, and I’m an HDR-aholic! There! I said it. I’ve been sloppy drunk on HDR lately – I can’t seem to stop myself. I know it may be a bit over-the-top. In some ways it really grabs you and is easy on the eyes. In other ways — well, it’s a bit much. I’ll be doing this for awhile if you want to leave and come back in a couple of weeks. If you think it looks OK, then hang around.
I was in Orlando yesterday at a meeting at the Citrus Club (la-de-da). Terrible meeting, but I took some photos from the top floor where the dining area is. I’ve always loved emeralds and sapphires – and that’s what I was trying for with these two buildings.
I took this next one a year ago in Altamonte Springs at Cranes Roost Park. Its the tower of … @* ? I dunno what the tower is supposed to be for or what it represents. Its just this faux, artsy-fartsy tower here in Central Florida.
Along the very south end of Daytona Beach (Daytona Beach Shores and Ponce Inlet) you can find some lovely homes sitting atop the dunes – barrier dunes protecting the shoreline and the turtle nests. Some think the houses intrude on the natural land and seascape – they may, but I guess we get used to what we see.
Our toys are kept close to the dunes so they don’t get caught in the surf and end out at sea, riderless. The lighthouse is right in back of me.
This is one of my shots from August 8, 2008 (08-08-08) – a grand summer day in Florida.
This is Sadie, my Rough Collie – probably the sweetest most affectionate dog you’ll ever find. And today she is eight years old (Born on 1-17-2002 in New Smyrna Beach, FL). Yesterday was her annual visit to the vet, and except for a bit of an eye problem, she’s doing extremely well. According to the chart that was on the wall in the vet’s office, she’s about 51 in dog years, but she hasn’t slowed down at all. She’s got lots of spunk and looks forward to playing Frisbee (with a flippy-flopper) a couple of times a day. She gets plenty of exercise. Today she’s get a cup of “Frosty Paws” for desert (doggie ice cream).
While on Anna Maria, I ran across this yacht dealer and looked over some of his offering. This, I guarantee you was just a fantasy adventure.
Many to pick from —
Would have made a lovely sail —
Adeline would suit me well, I’m sure!! A beautiful sailing vessel.
I didn’t buy – I’m sure I’ll sleep well.
