Last Shuttle Project- The Waiting Game
The Lightspeed Media team came from all over the US to assemble in Florida for the launch of the Shuttle Discovery. Originally set for Monday, the launch was delayed one day by the time we all gathered for our first meeting at the hotel. We all began opening the huge pile of boxes and gear that we had shipped down here. It looked like a photographers fantasy Christmas :)
Since I grew up down here I knew where to take everyone for a little fun. The Cocoa Beach Air Show is going on this weekend, so we went down to the pier to have some drinks and see the sights. We arrived just in time to see the last few planes, but I did get a few good photos with the monster 50-500mm lens that we’ll be using for the shuttle photos.
And I think most people know that one of my favorite things to do is sit at the pier, have at least one margarita (maybe more), and photograph the surfers. The waves and the lighting were perfect today. It really reminds me of all the time I spent here at the beach before I moved away. If things go as planned we’ll probably head back to the pier Sunday in the afternoon to do the same thing! Stay tuned~
