Scott and I have been in Croatia and Montenegro. We had an amazing trip and I'll be sharing some photos from our travels. 

This photo was taken from the pool at Le Meridien in Split, Croatia. The sunsets there are like nothing I've ever seen before. Heavenly!

Happy Friday!

Atlanta Snow Jam 2014

The first snowflakes began to fall in my neighborhood around 11:30 a.m. We knew the snow was coming, and yet, businesses and schools did not respond until it was too late. I was one of the lucky ones who made it home in about an hour and a half. Local and national news outlets are telling the stories of the many Atlantans who were stranded, but when this photo was taken, I was blissfully unaware of the chaos ... and I was enjoying the thrill of seeing snow in the South.

Hvar, Croatia

After several days in Split, we took the Jadrolinja catamaran over to the island of Hvar. Hvar is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. The water is gorgeous, the fields are lush and green, the weather is so perfect.

A big thank you to fellow G+'er +Chuck Palmer, who told us about the climb to the top of the fortress for spectacular views of the harbor and nearby Pakleni Islands. We happened to be in Hvar during Yacht Week and you can see that the harbor is dominated by one of several super yachts that we saw during our stay. I probably took 30 shots from the top of the fortress ... still trying to decide which one I like best.

Plitvice National Park

We drove from Split along A-1 (Croatia's autobahn) to Plitvice National Parks to see the amazing water and waterfalls. The park covers over 73,000 acres and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. 

It was packed the day we went which severely limited the ability to snap off a clean shot. A long exposure was entirely out of the question due to the massive crowds, but I did the best I could.

If you decide to visit Plitvice, I would strongly encourage you to visit before 11AM or after 3PM.

For more information on this gorgeous national park ....

Split, Croatia

Split is Croatia's second largest city and sits at the edge of the Adriatic Sea. It is a gorgeous city, very sophisticated and friendly.

One of the afternoon traditions is strolling along the Riva to enjoy the moderate temperatures and people watching.

Old Car City

I had so much fun on my first visit to OCC (May 25) that I went back again this past weekend. Now that I know my way around the trails, I can focus on composing my shots and not worry about getting lost. The mosquitos were out in full force, so if you decide to go, pack your insect repellent!  I also recommend taking your tripod, as many of the cars in heavily shaded areas.

Old Car City

I've been talking to +Gene Bowker about a trip to Old Car City which is about an hour north of ATL.  I believe +Patrice Christian is also interested in going ... wondering if anyone else is up for a photowalk?  Thinking some time in May before it gets too hot.

They are open on Saturdays from 9AM - 1PM.  Please let me know if you're interested, and if so, what Saturday in May works best.  I am not available on May 4.

It's Shakespeare #squirrelsaturday !  And I love seeing everyone's photos.  Even if you don't have a Shakespeare quote to share, be sure to share your squirrel shots!

Thanks to my partner in crime +Skippy Sheeskin and our guest curator +Russo's Books for making today's #squirrelsaturday  so creative and fun!

“Time is very slow for those who wait
Very fast for those who are scared
very long for those who lament 
Very short for those who celebrate
But for those who love time is eternal” 
― William Shakespeare

Good morning, fellow squirrel lovers!!  I caught this sweet girl grabbing one of the millions of acorns that have fallen around our house.  Talk about a breakfast buffet!

Will be a full day of football at our house:  LSU - Texas A&M, followed by the Gamecocks in The Swamp.  Looking forward to seeing your #squirrelsaturday  photos!  Go Gameocks!!!

New Orleans

It's been a crazy couple of weeks ... between starting a new job, planning a wedding and traveling to Louisiana, I have not been online all that much.  I am looking forward to visiting your streams over the next few days to see what I've missed.

In the meantime I wanted to share this photo with you that I took last Friday in the French Quarter.  It was around noon and there was a big crowd that had gathered to watch this talented couple dance to amazing music played by a band that set up outside the Lousiana Supreme Court building.  A lot going on in this photo ... if you take a few minutes to look :)

State Fair

Shot using my 10-22 mm wide angle lens at 10mm, cropped tight. f/5, 8 second exposure.  Ran it through Color Efex to get a little extra color saturation, sharpened a bit in LR4.

One of my favorite shots ... not sure why, just really dig it.  Hope you do too!

I have been inconsistent over the last couple of weeks with my postings!  Please forgive me!!  I have missed interacting with all of my G+ pals and am looking forward to visiting your streams to see what you have been up to.

Yesterday +Scott Cullen and I went to the North Georgia State Fair.  It's been years since I've been to the state fair, and we really enjoyed it.  Corn dogs, skee ball, petting zoos and of course, the ferris wheel!

I probably should have saved this for #transportationtuesday , but hopefully the curators will let me sneak this one in early :)

My first contribution to Food Friday!  These pics are from our lunch last weekend at Alma Cocina, which is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta.  Really friendly service, fresh, tasty food!

We like the fried avocado taquito (below) and as you can see, +Scott Cullen is enjoying a Classico Margarita con sal.

About an hour after I uploaded the shots, he emailed me and asked me to upload another 10 shots!  You can see my report and the shots here:

Dragon Con 2012

In this installment of Dragon Con photos we have some of the scariest characters I saw.  Not sure who the first girl is ... anyone know?  The second girl was a dancer in the Michael Jackson "Thriller" group.  And the last guy was hanging out near the host hotel, Marriott Marquis.  I know he looks incredibly menacing, but I have to tell you he was so nice!  He instantly broke into laughter after striking the pose you see here.

Dragon Con 2012

Dragon Con is the world's largest fantasy/sci-fi convention, held annually in Atlanta, GA, on Labor Day weekend.  The parade kicked off yesterday at 10 a.m. We arrived around 8:45 to get shots of the parade participants prior to the start.  I have a lot of photos.  Over the next few days I'm going to share some scary ones with some not so scary ones.  

Everyone is passionate about something:  golf, photography, fishing, exercise, movies, computers, etc. so while this is not my passion, I wholeheartedly respect the effort, time and enthusiasm the parade participants put into making their costumes and the parade a huge success.

Looking forward to seeing your photos, but first, I gotta run downtown and get some really cool Dragon*Con shots for you to enjoy.  It's 72 degrees in Atlanta with 97% humidity, so it's going to be a gnarly one ...

Don't forget to use the #squirrelsaturday  hashtag and include +Skippy Sheeskin and +SE Blackwell as your curators!

Hope everyone has a squirrel-tastic day today!

Dragon Con 2012

Quick reminder:  the Dragon Con parade will take place this Saturday!  Parade participants will gather and organize around Woodruff Park.  I'll be there at 9 a.m.  Parade begins at 10.  I'd suggest taking Marta if you can because traffic will be congested all weekend with so many activities (Nascar, 2 college football games & several other festivals).  If you can't make the parade and still want to shoot, you can go anytime and walk through the hotels, around the streets.  There is a lot to see, and the attendees are very friendly and happy to pose for photos.

Hope to see you there!

I have really enjoyed +Sharon Jeannette's butterfly images and wanted to jump in on her theme but alas, no butterflies.  Until this past weekend!  Our butterfly bush turned a corner, I guess?  All I know is we had the biggest, most beautiful butterflies fluttering around the backyard.  Not the easiest to photograph, but I was happy with this shot.

Southern Art

Southern Art is Chef Art Smith's (Top Chef Masters on BRAVO) restaurant. The restaurant is on the ground floor of the Intercontinental Hotel and features a very nice Bourbon Bar that we enjoy very much.  Their Old Fashioned is one of the best I've ever had.  

On that note ... wondering if anyone out there has been to the Bourbon Festival in Bardstown, Kentucky?  If so, what'd you think?  What's a must do?

Topsail Island Sunset

The captain of this boat did not follow the channel markers posted along the intracoastal waterway and found himself in waters more shallow than he anticipated.  Most people don't realize that the water in this channel is only about a foot deep in most spots, and you can frequently see people wading and collecting oysters.

Chicken

Meet Chicken, a mix of chihuahua and dachshund.  She is the child dog of a friend of a friend, and we did a photo shoot last weekend at Piedmont Park. Chicken is extremely affectionate and loaded with personality.  She loves to run at full speed in the big wide open fields at the park ... and, as you can see, she loves the camera.

Shot on Topsail Island, North Carolina.  Processed in Silver Efex.  It may not be technically perfect. It may not be the way you would process it, but it's my shot and as a result, I get to do with it whatever I want ... and this one may very well get printed and framed ... cause I like it!

Who's ready for the weekend??

Intracoastal Waterway

Have you ever played that game where you talk about how you'd spend your lottery winnings?  What would you do with all that money?  We've played this game many times and have decided that part of our lotto winnings would go towards a house on the intracoastal waterway of North or South Carolina.  We'd have a walkway to our dock to go crabbing and enjoy sunsets.  In fact, this spot would do quite nicely :)

Topsail Island Swing Bridge

There are so many things I love about Topsail Island, but one of my favorites is the swing bridge that connects the island to the mainland.  It opens every hour on the hour during the day.  I hope they never replace it ... this is a shot of the bridge opening as we cruise through ... so cool!

100 Strangers

Meet Ernie, his wife Dora and their dachshund, Ken Hans.  Scott and I met them while walking along the docks along the intracoastal waterway.  We struck up a conversation with them and learned that they moved to Topsail Island about 15 years ago and are now full time residents.  They were so much fun to talk to, so friendly.  As we were saying our goodbyes I said, "Would you mind if I get a photo of you?  I like to take pictures of the people I meet."  As you can see, they were happy to oblige.  (I stole that line from another G+ photographer!!)

Squirrel Saturday

Good morning squirrel lovers!!  I see many of you have already started filling the G+ airwaves with your squirreltastic images ... we can't wait to see your photos.

+Skippy Sheeskin & I have been playing around with additional themes over the last few weekends and this weekend highlights literature.  Maybe you have a favorite line from a poem, book, or short story that you want to share?  I'm a Faulkner fan, but today I wanted to share a line from another writer that I think fits well for today.

"Four legs good, two legs bad."  That's an easy one ... do you know the book??

Play along if you like, but no worries if it's not your thing - just keep those photos coming and use the #squirrelsaturday  hashtag so we can find you!

Surf City Sunrise

I'm not an early bird.  But we managed to get up early and make it to the beach and get a few sunrise shots.  The humidity did a number on my camera and lenses, so it took a while for the "fog to clear" before I could get a few clean shots.  This one was one of my favorites.  I hope you like it :)

Lois and Superman

If you take a really close look, you'll see the guy on the right is wearing a Superman t-shirt.  So the girl on the left must surely be Lois, right?

This was taken at the southern most point of Topsail Island. There are no developments or housing in this particular area, just natural wildlife habitats, sky, sand and surf.
