Sunbury Moonscapes

Took Jeanne and Scott's golf cart down to the water after dinner on Saturday night to this old mansion's remains and tried to do some of my moonscapes, taking advantage of the full moon rising over the bay at that sweet magic hour. Here's the two I like best shot under a live oak dripping with Spanish moss and a couple of boats passing by.

Sunbury, Georgia Coast

I wanted to share some of the beauty of the Georgia coast and the peaceful little area of Sunbury where I find myself this weekend. My step sister Jeanne and her husband Scott live here, spending a lot of time fishing, crabbing, shrimping and sharing the bounty of the sea with the local manatees and dolphins. Amazing to say the least. We took their golf cart to a neighbor's house last night for a crab feast and traveled down the oldest road in Georgia to get there. Here's a shot of the moss covered trees along that road and the delicious crabs we ate before they were cooked. Good eatin' ya'll.

Chris Fry, RIP

On July 15th, I had the privilege of photographing Chris Fry, in Mission, Kansas on July 15th for my project. He was a very nice guy, whom I had found online and asked about whether he might have interest in being a part of the book. Happily, he agreed and we set up a shoot when I was passing through town. Here's what he wrote me about himself.

Not really sure what to write. I work at KU Med Center as a respiratory therapist. I'm a quiet reserved person, put my all into something or someone that I like. Try to do right by others. May have found that special someone to spend my life with earlier this month. Like the outdoors and hanging with friends. Spend part of my life in the navy. Seen a good amount of the world. Well I hope I've answered your questions. Chris

Unbelievably, he was killed in a motorcycle accident last week, all too young. My heart and prayers go out to his family and boyfriend Kevin during this difficult time.
