fishing room

im posting these for my mother-in-law who wanted to see the work we did on our house. we had the wall from our front from knocked down and replaced with this arch. it really opens things up in there. all the walls in the front room, which use to be panel board, were replaced with drywall. and new ceilings in the front room and living room. the front room is now a kinda sitting room that has all my fishing and hunting stuff in it. also a picture of fern with my two faux hunting dogs.

post number 100. eat your heart out richie. richard swore he would beat me to 100 but no i have conquered. even though i started a month after he did. i gave you plenty of chances to catch up this summer.

another pic from the migrant fields of south florida. they get into a line and throw these melons. i tried throwing a few and was out of breath after about three throws. of course they all thought that was pretty funny. lazy, fat, out-of-shape white boy that i am.

in tourney news: we placed 4th last night which is in the money. so we didnt start a loosing streak. it was a good night. caught some nice keepers.

migrating melons

from a series of shots i did on migrant workers down in south florida. inside an old school bus that they cut the tops out of and use to carry these watermelons. we rode back to the plant on top of these melons. they sent a few home with us. very yummy.

boat abstract

shot at the end of the redington beach pier. i spent a lot of time fishing from this pier as a child. caught my first redfish from this pier. at the entrance there is a huge sign that that stretches over your head and reads "God does not subtract the time spent fishing from a mans life"

mangroves and coconuts

another black & white. from little gasparilla. i was walking along the inside of some mangrove trees and i noticed all these sun bleached coconuts had washed up together. thought they made for nice contrast.

under the pier

someone asked me to post some of my black and white "florida" prints because they are think of buying a few. so for the next few posts you will have to deal with that. this pic was taken down at the venice beach pier.

in tourney news!!! the streak ends. we only got 2 keepers last night. so that sucks. guess we will have to start a new streak. hopefully not a loosing one.

shark week

fern, face to face with one of my worst fears and fascinations. posting this pic in tribute to "shark week" on the discovery channel. i see a lot of sharks while i am fishing. makes me very cautious about getting in the water at the beach. trying to instill a good healthy fear in fern and leah without going overboard and being irrational.
