Florida State Fair 2014


My lovely wife insisted.  

Oh the crowds, and there were. Weighed against serious potential photo material.
Frankly the best people watching I've had in years.

She took some long exposure shots of fair rides at night.
I time-lapsed them with a GoPro Hero3 and a GoLapse panning unit.

Here are some of the results.

Furry Fruit Felon

There is nothing quite like the taste of fresh strawberries from your own garden.
The last couple winters I have grown a few earth boxes full of strawberries
 with much success. We have harvested a hand full of berries almost every day.

This year started well and then I noticed that berries were disappearing.
There is nothing more frustrating then watching a perfectly formed berry
start to ripen and then poof! Gone.
One time, bits of berry were left with leaves.

I set up a camera to record the garden in hopes of solving the crime.
It only took one day.
The Furry Fruit Felon has been identified.

The menace.
      A Squirrel with a sweet tooth.         

Here is a video I put together that shows the perpetrator in action.
