An Afternoon on the Roof

Here is a little Americana… when you run out of rooms to eat fast food in, the roof will always do nicely!

The Evening Storm and the Jag

I was about to take down the top but I was afraid of another swell rolling in!

The Merchant of Venus

The quality of neon is not strained… Which reminds me I was involved in a charades game a few months ago at a retreat and one of the clues I gave the other team to perform was “The quality of mercy is not strained”, and they got it! Sometimes the hardest charades clues turn out to be the easiest to get… what a strange game that is…

Below that Tomorrow Land shot, I put another one of my favorite pictures from Disney around dusk…

Complete with deadly alien shadows…

The Jag at the Breakers

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!

Isabella’s Little Pink House

It’s a cute little house here eh?

The Black Rhino

I guess these are endangered. I dunno… seems strange to say endangered when everything is endangered. I like to say they are losing the Darwin race, but people that are really into endangered stuff don’t like to hear that.

Shrooms in the Lounge

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…

The Calm After the Storm

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.

After the session, I headed out to get some pictures around Palm Beach. I twisted my ankle in an effort to get this one… that dock is even more uneven than it looks!

A Storm at the Airport

This always causes mild panic that I will be delayed in the airport. This was taken in Palm Beach, where I will be for a few days to meet with some attorneys. I don’t know if I would rather be in a plane in that storm or in a room full of attorneys… tough choice, really.
