Vacations

This is my contribution to Scott’s Assignment 27: Vacation. I would love to take a long vacation in a far away exotic land, but for now our vacation destination is wherever our RV would take us. Vacation to me is time spending with my family.

We took many camping trips this year, one of my favorite places is Cherokee, North Carolina. There is something about the thin air, high latitude, no cell phone reception and totally disconnected from the online world. We live in the foothill, so getting up here only take about 2 hours.

Transportation is a bit odd, I guess you can say it’s the sport car version of the bicycle.

We also camped at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on Labor Day weekend.

It takes us 5 hours to get to the beach, so we camped at the beach only twice this year.

Transportation of choice is the golf cart.  It has to be electric golf cart, which is more environmental friendly.

Golf carts cruising at night is really neat to photograph.

This concludes my vacation assignment, thank you Scott for the fun assignment.

Summertime

This is my contribution to Scott’s Assignment 26: Summertime. I love flowers and butterflies, and we are fortunate that the Catawba Science Center has a butterfly exhibit this year.  I have been visiting the butterfly garden a few times so far.

We have been camping a lot this Summer, and one of my favorite places to camp is Cherokee, NC.

Although it’s not so much fun camping in the rain.

Bo is too big for this one.

We love tubing and my sister bought a waterproof camera.  The quality of the photo is not that great, but it sure captures the memory of our tubing adventure.

Photo above was taken with a  Kodak waterproof camera 14 Mp

VA beach is one of our favorite beaches to visit.

It has been a busy Summer for us so far from camping in the mountain to down by the beach.

Photos were taken with 5DMkIII, and Canon 24-105mm f/4L lens.

Assignment 25: My Photography Passion

This is my contribution to Scott’s Assignment 25: Your Photography Passion.  I have to say that I photograph everything around me whether it be plants, nature, people or events.

I am a gardener and I love to photograph plants, it’s fascinating to see how fast they grow from week to week. I photographed my garden today right before it rained.

I also love to photograph people and sporting events. I had the opportunity to do panning shots of the uni-cycling at Lee’s school yesterday.
