Road Trip

Wow, epic road trip!  Anne and I logged about 40 hours in the car in the last two weeks… we crossed 9 States…  which is a lot, but we saw many of our friends and family and definitely had a blast!  I guess I barely leave Avon for 11.5 months of the year, so I’ve gotta log some miles at some point…

I want to tell my brother Jim and his wife Pauline “Congratulations!” for their first child, Ethan James, born December 25th, 2009!  I predict that he’ll be throwing forward loops by 2015 : )

There are too many intricate (and most likely boring) details of the trip to write about, so here are a few random pics and a short video that tell just a bit of the story:

And, of course, there has to be an action video:

    That's an awesome picture with the stars in the background. How did you get the exposure right?

  5. Happy New Year guys, thanks for the comments.

    James- The photo you're asking about is the portrait of me, Dale, and Anne, right? If so, those aren't stars, they're fireworks. The camera has a "night scene + portrait" setting that basically fires off the flash at the beginning of a very long exposure. The flash lights up the foreground stuff- in this case, my friends and I and some snowflakes. The long exposure allows background lighting like city lights, the moon, or in this case some fireworks, to be included in the shot. Hope that helps!
