Capt Joes HDR

 

Capt-Joes-HDRJust ran down Capt Joes and took a series of shots and merged them into an HDR photo. I will post a tutorial on how to do this in a future post. 

 

IMG_1913This is a non HDR image. And yes, Joey is the hardest working man in show business..or blog business. 

Gotta run and get ready for tonight at Captain Carlo’s for the JJ Nicastro Benefit. Come see Exit 11 and Earl Foote. 

Black Crowned Night Heron

This Black Crowned Night Heron was poking around outside the dock.  It’s one of the more unusaul birds that has been showing up more and more in the past few years.  I have no idea why we’ve suddenly gotten this influx of herons and egrets but it is interesting. 

Steve Borichevsky and Jim Barber are two local guys who go crazy for birds and take incredible pictures of them.  I wonder what it is about bird watching that gets those guys so riled up.  I’ll have to ask them if it’s the sighting of a rare bird, the challenge of photographing it or something else that fascinates them so.

Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups Set Location- Woodman’s Essex Ma

My buddy Brian (the rabbit) and I walked onto the set to try to get you folks some up close pics of the stars but we were rebuffed.  Actually a more accurate description of what happened was we went into Dunkin Donuts next to Woodman’s and then took a sharp left onto the set and just kept walking until the security guy came and asked us to leave.  Drat!

The things I do for you my readers!

Woodman’s building is completely covered in black tarps as they are shooting a night scene inside.  What struck me funny is how they indiscriminately nailed strapping wood over the black tarp all over the old woodman’s building.  There are going to either be a ton of nail holes left behind when that strapping is pulled off or they are doing to have to redo the siding.


Blue Tinted Lobster

Dave Jewell brought in this blue tinted lobster.  It isn’t nearly as blue as some of the other ones we’ve got in the past but I thought I’d throw the pic up anyway to add to the collection.  To see the mutated lobster and crab slide show click this text
