Florida canopy

As is so often the case, the image has really nothing to do with what I feel like babbling about. So, about this one, somewhere in central Florida from a little photo trip I took a few months ago.
Hope you like!

And now for the babble….

As a business owner for the last 22 or so years, I have never been one to count the hours worked throughout the week. Just get whatever needs to get done at whatever hour of the day or night and try to balance some personal time in there when possible. I seem to have a perpetual problem with the latter part of that I must admit. I realize that again this evening. While driving home from our event this evening in Vero, I tried to count the hours worked this week just for fun….stopped counting at about 95! Even so, we ended the week on a real high note.

I feel like we made some great friends up in Vero at this event. What a great group of people to work with. A little appreciation goes a long way with me….it always has. Please check back tomorrow for some great images from the show 🙂

    Fantastic tree and shot Mike. I like the tones too. Boy, you put some long hours in!!! After seeing the results of some of your lighting, I’d say it’s well worth it. I’ll be sure to check back:-))
    I shot a tree that looks very similar in Jacksonville. I love the moss (or whatever it is) that grows on the trees here.ReplyCancel

    95 hours? You’re CRAZY! But, it sounds like you are having a bit of fun at work…making friends, and doing something technical AND artistic so I guess it’s ok 😉 Can’t wait to see the shots from the show. And this shot is a stunner too. The tree looks fuzzy 🙂ReplyCancel

    wow this photo is brilliant!
    you should be happy as long as you are loving what you do. It’s so much worse to do half the hours of work and be doing it in a job you hate.ReplyCancel
