Alan Shapiro3,627,184I'm continually flabbergasted (I love saying flabbergasted. Say it with me. Flabbergasted. Now say it ten times while pretending you just got your tongue pierced. Cool.) at the sheer number of certain products available for photographers. Choosing a camera bags has got to be one of the more time consuming and frustrating experiences. And a bag is one of the products that is really important right? We're carrying expensive gear around and want to protect it. But then it has to be comfortable. And easy to use. After spending far too much time searching online and walking the aisles of B&H, Adorama. PhotoPlus Expo most recently in search of the perfect camera bag, I decided to ask a friend, +Peter Waisnor from +Tenba to spend a half hour with me to talk about choosing a bag and what to look for in a bag (while promising me to stay as neutral as possible despite making *the best bags in the world.*) Join us tonight from 8:30pm - 9:00pm EST (5:30pm - 6:00pm PST) for our Hangout On Air (which will be recorded so if you can't make it, no worries. You can watch it online later)Picking a camera bag...what to look for and how to decide what's right for you2013-10-28 01:30:0080

Bahia Honda landscape attempt #1. It was a disaster! #TheExperienceProject

First, the seaweed had washed up (leaving a roughly 12 inch high shelf of seaweed along the entire coastline), and we (meaning me, my 2 year old, and my camera equipment) had to scale the wall o' seaweed just to get to the water line. So we do this. I set down the toddler, and set up the tripod. The seaweed wall might be a monster, just so you know. And the toddler begins crying. I pick him up, and attach the camera to the tripod with one hand. HA! Toddler thinks the seaweed monster might eat camera, begins shouting at it (his confidence is boosted by being held, I guess). At this point the retired couple watching begin openly laughing.

Then...the remote shutter release won't work. I tested it before I left home, it worked fine. At the beach under the impending doom of the seaweed monster, it did not... more »

Hiding :)  I haven't found much inspiring enough to photograph lately.  But this morning, I saw this little frog.  And dashed back into the house to get my camera.  He didn't think I was as amusing as I thought he was.  Still...it was something, for me to grab up the camera.

I hope that my child, looking back on today
Will remember a mother who had time to play;
Because children grow up while you're not looking,
There are years ahead for cleaning and cooking.
So, quiet now cobwebs, dust go to sleep.
I'm nursing my baby, and babies don't keep. - Author Unknown

We had a great time at the Miami Zoo (where I was the past couple of days). It is so much fun to see animals with their young. This Giraffe was so sweet.

For #travelthursday - this is, well Thomas. We went to see Thomas in Miami over the weekend. I have more photos to share of this experience. It was a lot of fun. Here, we were in line for our ride, and he was pulling into the station. The fanfare matched any celebrity. Thomas was, well amazing. Sir Toppem Hat was a big more - asture. But the kids were happy to see him just the same :P

Pelican from today. My 5 year old went with me; we went pelican hunting. It was a blast! All these seagulls, and no pelicans, but we got lucky, he landed behind us, and we didn't see him until we turned to head back to the car.

As promised, here is my #selfy in the every popular Angry Birds shirt. In honor of the brand new daily theme #saturdaystyle or #SAS by the lovely +lynn langmade and +lane langmade

A couple of important notes: Couldn't figure out the problem with that stupid remote. So I found an even better remote, I refer to him as my hubby. And discovered that I am utterly incapable of making a matching angry face, so my thoughtful pose will have to do... Hope you enjoy!

My contribution for +lynn langmade 's #tat

Lynn, this is the "other one" taken as I noticed the sinking tripod. As you can see, the water was too clear and shallow to show a brilliant blue, and instead is clear and what you're seeing is the sandy bottom.

I posted yesterday the whole story behind my tat, and I'm not sure how to link it, but if you look on my stream, you'll see it. If you want to read about my ordeal ;)

This weekend was the 100th Anniversary of Henry S. Flagler's railroad to Key West. They said it couldn't be done. The 7 mile stretch just South of Marathon continues to be a modern marvel today. But he proved them wrong, and it was done.

We went on Sunday to the parade and the reinactment on Flager's speech when his train made it's last stop in Key West.

So this, my friends, is Henry Flagler (at least it's the actor portraying Flagler) for this my #travelthursday contribution. What better than a man dedicated to travel in the Florida Keys?

Bahia Honda landscape attempt #1. It was a disaster! #TheExperienceProject

First, the seaweed had washed up (leaving a roughly 12 inch high shelf of seaweed along the entire coastline), and we (meaning me, my 2 year old, and my camera equipment) had to scale the wall o' seaweed just to get to the water line. So we do this. I set down the toddler, and set up the tripod. The seaweed wall might be a monster, just so you know. And the toddler begins crying. I pick him up, and attach the camera to the tripod with one hand. HA! Toddler thinks the seaweed monster might eat camera, begins shouting at it (his confidence is boosted by being held, I guess). At this point the retired couple watching begin openly laughing.

Then...the remote shutter release won't work. I tested it before I left home, it worked fine. At the beach under the impending doom of the seaweed monster, it did not work. Guess it was scared too.

So I give up on a long exposure. The toddler has finally stopped shouting at the seaweed, and instead is munching on his snack and rubbing cookies into my shoulder. Which makes it kinda hard to lean down to the camera. Which is on the tripod, which has begun to sink in the sand.

I took 2 photos in total before I gave up and let the seaweed monster have his territory back. And here, my friends is that one solitary image that was miraculously exposed correctly.

Is it an awesome, amazing landscape? HA! Nope. BUT I earned that photo darn it, and so did the toddler. And he likes it.___
