Carl and Becky at the beach in Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park - Key West, Florida

Before we flew out, we stopped at the park for one last photo. I setup up my shot on a tripod with 2 flashes off camera controlled by flash on camera acting as master flash.

Strobist: SB-800 on camera as master. SB-900 on lightstand a bit to left and SB-600 clamped to tree a bit to the right.

View from the Casa Marina Hotel in Key West, Florida

I got up early before my conference and before there were any people out walking around. Lovely morning.

We stopped for a photo op by the old deserted bridge

Tomato Plants in the Window Sill

Planted on 3/9/09. Photographed on 4/9/09. At one month from planting the seed, the tomatoes are really shooting up. This particularly variety always has a sort of wilty droopy look to it. It is very delicate. Another variety is exactly the opposite and has a very sturdy look to it.
