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.

Extending photographic techniques

I found some excellent tutorials on HDR (High Definition Range) photography and I used them on some of my favorite photos.  I’m reposting – I hope you can see the difference and that it’s pleasing.

Went up to The Villages on Saturday… they had their monthly cruise-in – This particular TR6 look virtually new.  It is in such good condition – I may have drooled.

and, Oh by the way …

“….American political system “dysfunctional,” riddled with “brain-dead partisanship” and permanent campaigning.  …. American people needed to deliver a “shock” to Congress by voting incumbents out en masse and replacing them with people interested in reforming the process and governing for the good of the people, rather than deep-pocketed special-interest groups.”

I think integrity makes the man.  What do you think?
