Home Construction Update

For those that have been asking about this, I thought I could share with you some photos of the construction process.  I have, of course, taken many photos of the lot and initial construction process, and will take many more in the coming months.  As of now, I am very patiently awaiting for the foundation to be poured.  Very exciting.  Visit my house photos page to see the latest photos.


Wild Africa Trek at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

For my birthday, I went on the Wild Africa Trek at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  This was about a 3 hour trek, on foot and truck, through what most people see from their safari truck when riding the Killmanjaro Safari at the park.  While strapped in by our harness, we got pretty close up to the hippos and crocodiles and got some really close up views of the elephants, giraffes, and rhinos.  The Animal Kingdom cast members are good enough to photograph your journey.  Most of the pictures below are staff photographs of the trek or ones that Craig took with his more professional equipment.  We had great weather and I think the pictures came out fantastic.  It was a great experience I highly recommend.

Tomorrow’s World

Tomorrow’s World is the title of Erasure’s 2011 album, their most recent although they are working on a new album now as I type this.  (Very exciting.)  So, why am I discussing this here on my photo blog?  I thought the artwork that was released with this album was particularly inspiring.  Rarely do we see music labels, or consumers for that matter, pay much attention to album artwork.  Erasure has always seen the value in aligning the theme of their albums with artwork released on the main album and subsequent singles from that album.

Paddleboarding on Lake Underhill

Just a few shots that I took with my iPhone while paddleboarding around Lake Underhill this morning.  While not technically sophisticated photos, I thought the perspective was somewhat interesting.
