Indeed, this is ‘quite’ the Monday. It is on the down-hill side of OpSail-2012 in Norfolk, which was kicked-off by the preceding weekend here in Virginia Beach. From high-performance jet aircraft which can razzle-dazzle with their speed and acrobatic abilities, to seeing up close and personal, very large reminders of our maritime history from more than a few places around the world. I was merely lucky enough to be able to document small segments of all of the activities that have occurred. Tomorrow is ‘wrap-up’ as the fleet gets underway for Baltimore. If you would like to see the rest of what I was able to capture with my trusty Nikons, please click here for a direct link to my website à http://www.johncadellphotography.com/p238737914 . WTKR viewers will be seeing a lot of new background images in the coming days during the weather segments.
This week's choice shows people anticipating the upcoming fireworks show between Norfolk and Portsmouth. I think you'll find yourself identifying with some of these folks seen here - waiting and quite happy to be there.
I look around this image and I think we can reasonably ascertain that looking at these folks that sometimes in our all too busy lives, there comes a time where it's the simpler things in life that bring us a certain happiness that can't be done via the more usual means.
So set the Starbucks® Sillyfrapachino with diet ice down for just a moment and take in an evening view. In a few moments, the relative quiet will be replaced with the thunderous boom of fireworks and the subsequent ‘oohs-and-aaawws’ that goes with the artistry of a major-league pyrotechnics production. It’ll do you just fine to have the view in real-time by being there in person vs. the You Tube ® and Face Book® versions. Independence Day is a couple of weeks away – I hope you’ll have time to enjoy it.
Good luck, may the Force be with you… Aloha.
