Different day- same boat.
I have boycotted the NFL all season but couldn’t resist seeing the Super Bowl, mostly for the commercials!! Anyway, glad I watched. It was likely Tom Brady’s last game, maybe Belichick too. It was a great game, a nail biter, but it was worth watching the whole game to hear the three principles for Philadelphia give all the glory to God. Great to have something positive come out of the NFL!
So, I didn’t get up this morning until almost 10:00. Just two shots this morning, will work on some more later and hopefully post a few more!
Sherelene offered to pay for my Yoga class, but I told her I couldn’t photograph them if I was in the class!! Wheeew, close one. …..and really can you see me in this photo? Yeah, me too….
Sherelene and I went out for lunch and then drove out to the California Lighthouse. It was the wrong time of day, but I shot one anyway and thought the monochrome was best, will go back when lots of puffy white clouds frame it. in early morning or late afternoon, way to windy to put the drone up.
I met a guy named Bonita and he gave me some good information on other locations I hope to try to shoot, I loved his sun glasses and my reflection in them, he kindly, actually rather enthusiastically, allowed be to photograph him!
The people of Aruba are warm and friendly and eager to help, great change from some other places I’ve visited!
When we got back to our room the sun had shifted over and is heading for a sunset over the water. I love this light for backlit boats and this was a good one too!!!
Timing is everything!!! As I shot the image above I saw just outside the frame a speedboat roaring into my frame, I knew had this one so I got ready to get the right moment of the juxdiposition of “old and new”!
Till later, blessings,
Question: Is this cheating, would you do it, would you feel guilty?
…and then the sunset on another beautiful day in Aruba……
