Totally agree. She could rule my world.

Happened at the Nautical during DS. Walking across the parking lot with about 6 guys.
It was probably hilarious to anyone who saw it- when I stopped to get the shot everyone in the group stopped.
Quite a sight.

So was this:

That early morning shot of you is a great example.

And, for me- no better example of it than this one:






This photo was more fun to set up than any from this year or any other year.
Because I was still recovering from back surgery (6wks),
Air travel and driving were still wearying, so I allowed myself an extra day of travel on the way to LOTO.

I'm in a Days Inn near Ft Jefferson, and I am seeing facebook updates from Low Altitude.
They are heading my direction with their latest update giving an eta of about 22 minutes.

So, I break into the camera bag, then set up a chair at the window and open it.
A quick test in the 6-in opening tells me with the bldg facade on my left and an overpass to the right
I'll have about 4 seconds to get a clear shot.

I have a few real clear memories from early studies in the late 70's
and I remember the one simple rule of action photography:

Be ready.
You have to be a bad ass to catch that one as good as you did Jay! One of my favorites

Thumbs up Makin' a list...

Tom, Johnny-- thanks. You guys are on the list.

Thanks to all of the folks- friends, who make this what it is- a phuckin blast.
The machines and the venues make for fantastical photos.. but, it's the people that really do it.

The friends, the CHARACTERS in this life- cool, crazy, intense, driven, hilarious... who,
when taken as a whole- make up a world in which I sure feel at home.

Thought experiment:
jot down the first 10 people that come to mind when you think of go-fast boats and think about that bit of humanity for a moment.

I could go on... hell, there's ratman, masher, big scotty--
