The Old Shooter at Work

Posted by Monterey John (Hollister, CA, United States) on 26 November 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

My brother shot this photo of me setting up to shoot a sunset across the Indian River from Merritt Island near Melbourne, Florida.

At the risk of hoorifying folks who follow this blog, I'll post it.

The word I get from my relatives in Florida (I was born and raised there) is that it was an incredible Thanksgiving Day. Enjoy your stay.

Happy to see you at work ... thank you brother for the new profile shot!
I have to agree with Jack's relatives; our Thanksgiving Day was "incredible" here in Florida, and I know you won't argue that fact, John. Are you sure you want to leave? ;D

As I look at this great shot of you John, I see that you can take the boy out of California, but you can't take the California out of the boy. You'll get back there soon enough, and blend right in, no worse for the wear after these months of exile on the "East Coast." Haha.

An image right out of Outdoors Photographer magazine. Outstanding image of you, John.
It has celebrity appeal.
Welcome to Florida! The East coast isn't as humid as this West coast, but it beats the cold.
Enjoy your stay and photo ops here.
