I've been having trouble with the primary Mac Pro in the studio for almost two months. Yesterday, on the phone with a senior tech support person at Apple, the tech thought the logic board was the problem and ordered a new one under the AppleCare plan.
When the board is installed by the Apple Store in Norfolk, I think MPro2 will be well again.
Friends are cruising the Aegean Sea in Greece this week and it took me back an exploration of Greece a few years back; both Aegean and Ionian Sea islands. The island-hopping was by ferry, sometimes on foot and sometimes with a rental car.
Spent a whole day to get this shot of Wreck Beach aka St. George Wreck Beach. Took back roads and 4WD across a field beside an old monastery to a cliff overlooking this beach (scary in a 2WD rental car). The freighter on the beach is a couple hundred feet long. Would liked to have had a tether shooting this, but didn't.
Being underwater in a large school of marine life has a very unique feeling. If they are sharks, you get something of a feel for danger (mostly because of news stories). If you're close to a whale (like this; close enough to reach out and touch), you're in awe of their size. But, even in a school of smaller creatures like this, there's something very electric about it.
It's hard to explain; maybe you just have to be there.
Mostly horse-eye jacks here; Turks & Caicos Islands last month.
No, not the model. The Red Satin Monster is Me.
Kristi Sherk showed up from D.C. a few weeks ago with five yards of red satin fabric and I keep shooting it in different ways.
Last week, scuba instructor Annette Papa, GF of Midnight Express Captain Michael Gerkin, drove to Virginia Beach from Morehead City, NC for a one-day one-on-one Underwater Modeling Course. Michael becomes the Captain of the Palau Aggressor in September and I offered to help get Annette ready for some incredible underwater time in Palau during her days off from Sam's Tours.
After our educational time, we pulled out the red satin. This is one of the creative frames underwater.
Today was a parade of military ships, but the tall ship Pride of Baltimore was out in the bay under sail, so we took a few minutes to shoot it, not knowing for sure if we could get it on Friday, the tall ship's parade day. You know, bird in the hand sort of thing.
We are doing this in a new Boston Whaler 37' Outrage with three 300hp outboards and practically one of every boat electronic piece made by RayMarine. A great marine photography platform.
