Well everyone, I'm off to work for the rest of the year, so this will be my last post until 2011! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. I hope you've enjoyed my photos/editorials, and hope to see you all again next year. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!!

Shadow shots are pretty tough to take since the camera has no "solid" to focus on. So, when I get a good one, it is one of those "I can't believe I got it" shots to me. Here's a shot I got when I was riding in back and commuting up to Newark, NJ (EWR), a couple of weeks ago.

Sometimes you just know there has to be a God..........especially when you see a sight like this! Click on the photo!

One of the things I love about going to Aruba, is that we are put up at a hotel that has flamingos on its private island. These are fascinating birds and make for some great photos. I brag about my Nikon 8800 a lot, and you can see from this photo why! I use no "photo shop" or tricks to get a shot like this..........just point and shoot! Sometimes I can't believe the shots that camera takes for me. Sure makes picture taking easy!

Three years ago I had the opportunity to get an overnight in Antigua (ANU). Our hotel just happened to be on the beach by the annual boat sail-in. Here's an evening shot I took. Their were probably 500 sailboats in the bay, and the next morning when I woke up, their were approximately five or so left.

When we push back in foreign countries, it's usually quite a sight. Los Cabos (SJD), Mexico, is no exception. Here's a "reflection" shot of us getting ready to start our flight back to Newark (EWR). Every attendant has their vest on, and when we start the actual push back, everyone will be in their own place, usually lined up as a sign of "respect" and "good voyage" to everyone. It's pretty neat!

Seems a lot of folks like my "sunrises/sunsets", so here's a picture I took a while back of an incredible sunrise in NYC. I'm surprised at how well my camera is able to block the glare from the windows of the terminal since that's where I'm shooting from. I have to tell you, the NIKON 8800 that I use is one great camera! With it, even I can get a good photo every now and then!

Decided to go to the beach today for a few hours and was surprised to see a major sailboat race in progress. Their were sailboats from all over the world...........and it was pretty cool to watch their sails billow out as they turned into the wind. I'm always amazed how those things can actually move into the wind. But it looks like the beach weather is done for a few days..........back to 38 degrees tonight! BRRRRRR*.........................(*but no snow!!!!!) ;-)

During my recent trip to St Maarten (SXM), I observed a few "uninformed" individuals doing the "let's stand behind the airplane and see what it feels like" routine. Unfortunately, the B747 causes quite a bit more "storm" than most people realize. Here's a lady getting the sandblasting of her life. I think she won't do this again, but that's just my feeling. Needless to say, she was pretty shook up after this little event. Just another reason I love SXM!!!!! Always an adventure! I've attached the "culprit" and the "victim"!!! :-)

Yesterday while I was relaxing, I got a call from my girlfriend, Maria, and she told me to go check out the skywriting outside our home. Needless to say, someone paid a LOT of money for nothing. Seems the higher level winds were so strong, that the letters were literally disappearing before they were finished. So, what do you think of this guys skywriting? Looks like he needs a lesson in "penmanship". LOL

Well, finally back from my hiatus................:-) Actually got an SXM (St. Maarten) trip a couple of days ago, and it worked me right up to my vacation! Wow, how cool is that? Anyways, here's a shot I took of the sun setting. The sky looked like it was on fire. Absolutely gorgeous! Any question of why I'd like to retire in SXM??? Ahhhhh, the beautiful sunsets just make it that much more enticing!
