Sometimes the island lodging is thatched roof primitive, but last week on Cozumel, Mexico, was in pretty decent digs, Hotel Cozumel. Photos by the DJI Inspire 1 drone from over the dock looking back at hotel, then the hotel pool and inner courtyard yesterday morning just after sunrise and a taxi to the airport. My 2nd floor room overlooked the pool on the left side behind the greenery.

DJI Inspire 1 Quad Drone; no props

150115-2220AForWebOnly.jpg

The very bad ass DJI Inspire 1 quad is here and undergoing acceptance testing. Needed firmware upgrade to kill a couple of bad habits. I'm spending some time flying it in the Simulator just because I haven't flown a Simulator before. Very cool stuff. Should have it in the air shooting in a day or two.

Yeah, came in its own ballistic nylon case. Very baddd.

Not all who wander are lost

060608-9281DA.jpg

I've liked this quote since first seeing it and it's been attributed to Jerry Garcia (The Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band). But, it actually came from J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and numerous other books. It came from this: "All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by frost." -- with Jerry Garcia.

Great Hammerhead Shark off Bimini, Bahamas Islands

140124-0136CForWebOnly.jpg

Drones are great tools for getting different photo perspectives, but for different subject matter, Great Hammerhead Sharks cruising by the camera work extremely well. Location: 35' of water off Bimini, Bahamas Islands with some friends specifically searching for these sharks. Bingo. Success.
