Chestnut Street Cemetery of Early Apalachicola

Old City Graveyard dates back prior to 1831. Buried here are many of the Founders of Apalachicola, soldiers of the Confederacy, victims of yellow fever and shipwrecks. Some graves are made of wood and are worn to the point of being paper thin. The Infrared images really are my favorites of the series I took here.

Some of the crypts were cracked open. This was one of the coolest cemetery I have visited to date. My husband and I always seem to visit them when we travel. On my way to the only nearby grocery store (2 bridges away from St. George) I passed by this place and knew I had to go back with Shane and explore. It did not disappoint.

Against Me! & Silversun Pickups

Silversun Pickups @ The Tabernacle 6.19.10

I muscled my way to the front of the crowd

Against Me! opened for SSP. Their Irish Arses Rocked the house!

Beach Portraits

I have always seen those family beach pictures and wanted to try some of my own. I used my Nikon D300s mounted on a tripod, in camera flash set to fill. Nikon SB800 stobe on light stand to left of subjects fired from the in-camera commander mode with sun setting to right of subjects. ISO 200
These were taken with the Lensbaby composer

The Shark that scared us silly
My husband bat him to the shore
At first we thought it was a bottle, then we realized it was a Man O War
My sea monster I built it the sand
We caught 8 starfish (My daughter caught all but 2)
I dug him up out of the sand when I was building my sea monster

Tina and I really loved these chairs
He was dug up from the ocean and I made him pose for me
Garett found a sea snail
Lighthouse in Infrared

My family and I took a week long trip with some friends and their families to S.G.I. Florida. It is on the Gulf Coast. We almost cancelled (actually we did and then rebooked the same house 2 days later) due to the oil spill. Lucky for us we were oil free. We observed lots of wildlife and enjoyed the remote beauty of the island.
