Thanksgiving in Upstate New York!

Home for Thanksgiving! Is there really anything better than that? (other than home for Christmas I suppose but, as an audio engineer that's forfeit anyway lol) We all had so much fun this year and it snowed!... I even got to have a snowball fight with my 10 y/o sister my last day! I know it sounds funny but I think this was the first year we all sat around the table after dinner and said what we were thankful for. Well I think all those years of not having that caused us all to save up a bunch of blubbering emotion... My family is all really close so the waterworks opened up and I think it was the greatest miserable time we've ever all spent together lol

Oh and keep a look out for the next post coming soon... My little brother Stephen and his beautiful fiancee Heather!

Ok I'm just doing all the names once! :)

LtoR- Me, Heather, Steve, Aunt Gay, Uncle Joe, Grandma, Poppy (w/ Max the wonderdog) Dad, Katie, Mom, Michelle, Laura, Lou and Kim and their two boys Justin and Brandan in front.

Ok well for starters I took 1400 photos this day and had a blast... And 2nd... it's 3 am and I have writers block so I really hope you enjoy the skim pics. Goodnight!

Addendum- Ok it's morning now and I'm a little better rested... These shots were from a few weeks ago but I went to NY for turkeyday and just haven't gotten to posting 'em till now, I know, par for the course. But! There's at least two more posts coming up real soon!

I had a great time shooting these but had a couple real near misses involving the camera and waves lol, not to mention boy did I get my exercise right along with them!... I would run along behind or beside and then drop down and let off a rapid fire burst of shots each time they'd hit the water. It was a fun day for all but, I'd have to say one of my biggest highlights was when I got back to my truck an hr. after my meter ran out and I didn't have a ticket! Ok I gotta run to work so enjoy the skim session with Danny and Silvia!

Disney Trip!

Well it's really sad but we're already home from last weekend's awesome trip to Disney (yes we're big children)... We had an incredible room at the Animal Kingdom Lodge where they showed us some big love and upgraded us to a savanna view room! There's nothing like rolling out of bed, looking out the sliding glass door and seeing giraffe, zebra and a whole host of other animals just walkin around doin whatever african animals do! But the best part was that we had some great company this time... My little sister Laura came down from NY, Alandra's best friend Monica flew in from TX and we even had a quick visit from some good friends from church that go to school in the Orlando area! The more the merrier at Disney! Anyway there's a couple more little stories with some of the shots so check 'em out!

Can you believe I took these next couple shots from our room's balcony?!


Laura workin it

if you ever go to Coke's flavors around the world in Epcot you gotta try the one with the blue label called "Beverly"

Anybody know what ride these next few are from?

At the exit of test track... (aslo the answer to the above question :)

It's always a beautiful night in Mexico

I used to play with the jumping water too when I was young, one time i misjudged it and the same thing happened to me lol... After taking these I ran over to the family and we all huddled up and almost wet ourselves laughing so hard at their faces zoomed in lol

Rockin' Rollercoaster!

Funny story, after I took this shot one of Disney's photopass photographers came up to me and says "I'm having lens envy..." lol turns out their gear is a little on the amateur side... and as we keep talking she tells me they just told her what settings to use and sent her on her way! She didn't really know how to use a camera!! So we had a quick little crash course on how a camera works and how to use the manual settings lol

He's everywhere... And he's watching...

1985 it was the electric light parade... 2009 it's spectromagic... I miss the beatle song :( lol
