Shot across the bay between swells of the storm… The storm came across the sound very quickly right at sunset, so the fast-moving clouds made a new painting every few minutes… This one is my favorite from the batch I took.
It’s just slightly nicer than the Motel 6 way down the road, and they even let you play soccer there in the grass.
I was lucky that it was very stormy there and the rain let up right at dusk.
This is the famous Breakers hotel in Palm Beach. I have a good friend and partner there that lets me borrow his Jag whenever I come into town, so it was better than the old economy mid-size from Avis that I was used to!
The lounge area of the Breakers in Palm Beach has some very cool light-based sculptures. I’ve never seen anything quite like them. The hotel staff eyed me suspiciously as I went around with my tripod to get pictures. They kept looking at one another with a "I’m sure he got permission to do that" kinda look…
A few days ago I posted a picture of the storm at the airport here in Palm Beach. I was contemplating flying into the heart of the storm instead of sitting in a room full of attorneys for the day. Today I chose the latter and it was about as much fun as it sounds. It was my first time through this particular experience and it wasn’t what I would call a rockin’ good time. I wish I could have said, “Your honor, the witness (me) is being badgered” but there was no judge, just a bunch of lawyers quoting rules and regulations I’ve never heard of. I think, technically, lawyers have formed a sovereign nation who have created a set of rules that abstract them and all behavior from regular society. That’s another pseudo-sociological concept I am working on, but is a rather empty thing to really think about unless you are on a break in one of those badgering-sessions.
