Mono-mood, mono-mode, mono-tone, mono-vision..... whatever it is I'm in a funk. I can't seem to see outside my own box. Lots of stuff running through that space between my ears lately. Some of it Tom (who am I kidding - MOST of it....) and some of it J-O-B related whether it be the current position or trying to organize my future.
Anywho, on to the pictures.
Tuesday Miss T and I rode down to Myrtle Beach to be with the family a bit.....the handsome dude coming out of the water is my step-brother from LA. Yes, he's single, yes he has a job.
We lounged on the beach. I had my new camera with me (LOVE MY CAMERA) so I'm trying it out. Most of the beach shots I took from 50 feet away while sitting under the umbrella.
After sand in our toes, we showered off and headed out to eat at Chuck's steakhouse....not too bad. Steak needed some flavor, at least some salt and pepper and it was a bit dry for me and I ordered it medium. Mr Chase had not napped much that day at all so on picture is of his mom scolding him. Another one you see her running behind him as he trys to catch up with Grammy (in the blue bathing suit with white hat).
Out back of the restaurant we spied a rabbit through the window. So the kids took off to the back. We found them and I got a shot of the lil guy, then step-bro chased him off. The couple in pink is my Mom and step-Dad. They were taking bro to Carolina Opry for his birthday (24th).
Miss T and I headed to Broadway at the Beach so she could Make A Friend at Build-a-Bear. What a crowded place.....I'm not used to it being so crowded since we can slip down here year round. I forgot we were in the middle of the summer tourist season LOL. The Alligator is directing a little jazz band as they headed over to Celebrity Square (from the shopping side of Broadway) -- the part where the nightlife is....nice bars and great music, places like Margaritaville, Key West Grill, Senior Frogs, smaller clubs and bars. I particularly like the shot of the sunset over the fountain.
My new camera. It's nice. I thought I wanted the new Kodak Z712...bought the Z710...took it back and bought the PanasonicDMC-TZ1. Awesome lil camera. Not so little inside because it has a 10x optical zoom, image stabilization AND loads of settings for different scenarios. Even has one for "food"....yep you can take a pic of your food and not have the plate or food colors mixing in with each other.
The "beach" mode is what I shot DUH on the beach. It has party, candle light, fireworks, starry sky, snow.....wow! Still playing with it....it's soooooooooooooooooo nice!
Enjoy your tour.
