This was one of a few amazing images I manage to capture while out Monday shooting with the Vero Beach Photography Group. The shoot was held at a draw bridge in Jupiter, Florida. I have some more shots on the way with the Sun setting, which was gorgeous that night.
After work today the sky looked like something out of a movie, you know one of those end of the world flicks. The clouds were a dark apocalyptic gray, felt like at any moment a tornado was going to form and rip through the streets. And all I could think about was how I left my camera at home. It never fails, a perfect moment to photograph some amazing clouds and I decide to leave my camera at home. So long story short, I really wanted to photograph something today, so I put the station wagon on warp speed, which is about 45mph, got my camera a headed to Jupiter Island.
Florida is the lightning capital of America and I wasn’t scared one bit while photographing this with an all metal tripod. I’m pretty fearless when it comes down to getting the perfect shot so if one day news hits that Captain Kimo died, don’t be surprised to find out that it was with a camera in my hands. I guess everyone has their poison, photography would be mine.
In memory of my younger brother, Sam, who recently passed away this year, he was only 29. This was his favorite spot, the Jupiter Inlet. If he wasn’t at home, this is where he would be. This was a place where no one judged him, a place where he could be himself. We fished together here often, lots of goodtimes. Now all that is left are those memories, memories that I will charish forever.

This railroad bridge can be found in the Jupiter, Florida area. There is always something fascinating about railroads, and when you put a draw bridge into the equation, that’s something asking to get photographed. There is definitely a uniqueness to this railroad bridge but I can’t quite figure it out. It could be all the dirty and grungy textures surrounding it. Dirt and grime always puts a smile on my face. Railroad draw bridges are pretty rare to come by. I drop by this place every so often when I’m in the Jupiter area. A great place to kick back and relax. The next one is about 20 miles north from hear in Stuart. I don’t find railroad bridges that fascinating.
