Back from Paradise!!!!!!

Cold dreary Monday morning greetings to all!!!!!

I’m back from Mustique and indeed that island is paradise!!!! Anytime you can get out of Central Illinois in the middle of winter and head anywhere that’s warmer (even 50 degrees), it makes the winter go a little bit faster!!!!

Here’s one more snap from Mustique and this will make most of us in colder climates think of spring and summer!

Thanks as always and I hope that you have a fantastic week!!!!!

Sunrise in Paradise!

Sunny warm tropical Caribbean Monday morning greetings to all!!!!

Some days I have a dirty thankless job. Fortunately for me, today is not one of those days!!!!!!!

Before I get too much grief for this, I’m the most blessed person that you’ll ever meet!!!!!!

This all started early last week when I got a call from a client wanting to know if I could fly down here to the Caribbean for a shoot this week. It probably took shorter than a nanosecond for me to say yes! We flew down yesterday morning leaving Peoria and the -25 below zero wind chills to arrive here in St. Vincent 12 hours later and it was actually a little warm when we got off the plane. Of course I solved the problem of being too hot with some of my favorite cold adult beverages and the world was right once again!

Here’s the morning sunrise shot, enjoy!!!!!!!

OK, now you can let me have it!!!!!! I’ll just have to live with the daggers that are coming!!!!!!!

I’m sure that I’ll have more photos to share next week, so to all my friends back home, “Stay warm”!!!!!!!!!!!!

Life Flight and the Super Bowl!!!!

Foggy Monday morning greetings!

Whenever I’m watching a big game like yesterday’s Super Bowl, I usually root for the underdog in the game. Since my beloved Chicago Bears were hopelessly out of contention to even make the playoffs, I was rooting for the underdog N.Y. Giants. All I can say about that was, “What a game”!!!!!!! Most SB’s are blowouts by halftime, but that game yesterday had me on the edge of my seat to the very end!!!!! Wow!!!!!!

On to photography! I was shooting some shots last week of the OSF Life Flight helicopter and some of the different flight nurses. We did the shoot in the hanger with a bunch of lights and really had fun coming away with a pretty dramatic shot!!!!!

Thanks as always and have a wonderful week!!!!
