This image is from our outing last Saturday night. We were in down town New Port Richey for long exposures. It is a very busy place on a weekend evening, and I’m not sure if I’ll ever get tired of shooting this little city.

We all know the dangers of meeting people (strangers) over the Internet. The Craigslist murder. The one that happened to me “Barelee18nympho”. Please don’t bring that one up if my wife is with me. Last week we met two gentlemen for breakfast to discuss mutual interests. Much to our relief they did not harm us in anyway. The photo is of Will shooting a performer in the park. Thank you Will T. and David P.
PS no one was harmed in taking this photo

This is my very first post to this group. I thought I’d upload something not many have seen. This is an adult Southeastern Five-Lined Skink. My wife and I took a short hike this past Sunday and this little guy was out sunning himself on a tree stump. This photo tells you two things about me. First, I really enjoy nature photography and second, I like reptiles. I have a fascination with snakes, lizards, and turtles.
Please feel free to post comments. I love to hear feedback about my work. I am an amatuer, so please be kind. I’m getting better as I go. I’ll post a little more about myself as I post more photos so you can learn more about me and one of my favorite hobbies. I’d like to know more about you guys too. Feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com.

Meet J.C. Munty.
Mr. Munty has seen a lot in his 92+ years on Earth. A mechanical engineer by trade, he now keeps himself busy by running his own appliance repair business in downtown New Port Richey. I stopped in to visit with him and he was kind enough to chat with me and let me take a few photos. Mr. Munty has had quite a life. He was born in October of 1916, and later served in WW II as a paratrooper. He carried a camera with him everywhere he went and took many photos during the war. After the war, he worked as a mechanical engineer, but his real love wasn’t designing, it was building. He went on to own his own machine shop and even became a contractor for NASA at one point. His current business is an appliance repair store, which is small but filled with many amazing pieces of the past. On site, he repairs items from decades past using antique machines to fabricate home made parts. Because much of what he services are old machines with no replacement part availability, he makes most of the needed repair parts by hand. I was quite intrigued at his knowledge and skill. If you need any appliance repair or are up for a good story, please be sure to stop by his shop. He’s been in downtown New Port Richey for over 28 years near the corner of Main on Bank Street.
It’s our first official meetup of 2009! We’ll meet at Christina’s restaurant in downtown New Port Richey at 8am on Sunday April 26th for coffee and perhaps breakfast. Then we’ll roam around downtown New Port Richey and the Pithlachascotee River taking photos (as usual!).
Christina’s is located at 5821 Main St in New Port Richey, FL 34652 (727) 847-7827.
