Well, what a Thanksgiving break. I got to spend it back in Cape Coral, FL, where of course I had my camera on me! I've been wanting to get that cool shot from high up on a roof using a long exposure to get streaks of headlights. You know, like this one, from Dave DiCello (@DaveDiCello on Twitter):
So, here is my own attempt, from the roof of Hotel Indigo in Downtown Fort Myers, FL:
I actually began wondering why on earth these pictures sucked. Then I realized...lack of traffic. So, I simply panned my camera around to view the bridge over the Caloosahatchee River and...
Not quite the perfect effect I wanted, but still an excellent shot! Anyway, the next day was Thanksgiving! We went out to Sanibel Island for dinner. On the way there I told my dad to pull off the side of the causeway between the island an mainland to get awesome pictures like these:
And on our way back home:
We finally arrived home, where, well, let's just say I went from sports photographer to nature photographer to forensic photographer in less than a week.....
SURPRISE! A water line in our house broke.
Look, the water is even dripping off of the kitchen light! (This was only after we came home to a waterfall out my front door and a fire hose spewing water from the wall down onto everything)
Thankfully the photos from the bottom boxes were okay!
We then endured two days of THIS:
Yes, the carpeting was ruined in the entire place.
My poor dog was traumatized.....she was probably underneath the kitchen table when it started raining...inside! Though she looks perfectly happy here!
So I'm not sure if that was a Thanksgiving to remember or a Thanksgiving to forget!
