Was walking my dog yesterday when I noticed all these dragonflies flying all over the place. Must be mating season or something as I’ve never seen this many dragonflies in a day. Here are some of the brave ones who sat still for me despite my iphone getting too close to photograph them.

Ever since the cruise industry reopened last June, after being shut down by the pandemic for more than a year, I have been on two cruises to the Caribbean via Celebrity Cruises. The first was on August 14th while the second one was on September 25th, both times on the Celebrity EDGE ship. This ship is one of Celebrity’s newest and largest with a notable feature called the “Magic Carpet”, which is an orange platform protruding from the starboard side of the ship. Meanwhile, the interior of the ship is very contemporary, which is a good departure from the traditional classic look of older cruise ships. Here are some photographs I took around the ship and of our stateroom using my iPhone 11 Pro Max. I also created a video tour of our suite and posted it on my YouTube channel. Here’s the link to the video: https://youtu.be/2lVIQlhzO_M

I’ve been absent for a while so my apologies for keeping this page as dark as a starless night. Thankfully, morning has broken and I’m back with some sunshine ready to revive this page with more of my photography. I may have stopped posting but I’ve never stopped taking pictures. In fact, the photo above was taken this morning during my morning walk with my dog. This pathway to the beach is one of my favorite spots in my neighborhood and I’ve always wanted to capture the sunrise from here. Today I got lucky as the sun rose at the most perfect spot in the horizon, which was beautifully framed by the swaying palm trees, lush shrubs, trees and the sandy pathway. I used my iPhone 11 Pro Max to capture this photograph using the wide angle mode to capture everything. I’m happy to be back and I hope you all regularly visit my page again.

My friends Gary and Melanie have always been my ever reliable fans when it comes to my photography. I have taken their engagement photos back in 2015 and when they were expecting their first baby in 2019 I also took their maternity photos. So when they found out they were expecting baby number two, it didn’t come as a surprise when they asked me to take their maternity photos again. They wanted the photoshoot at the beach so I suggested the Lauderdale-by-the-Sea Pier just north of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I thought having the pier in the background would be a nice addition to the sun, surf and sand. We timed the photoshoot early in the morning so as the light from the sun was not at its harshest. These photos were taken end of January and on the first week of April they welcomed a healthy baby boy into their family. Perhaps our next project will be a family portrait…we’ll see.

Whenever I see a bee, I always run the opposite direction. I grew up fearing them after seeing the swollen faces of neighborhood kids after getting stung by one. Today I decided to overcome my fear, after all, should I get stung on the cheeks or lips then I get instant fillers for free. LOL. I was walking my dog this morning when I noticed these bees happily hovering over a bed of flowers. Thanks to my ever reliable iPhone 11 Pro Max I was able to capture these pollinators at work. I took these photos with the subject about 6-10 inches away from my phone. I guess today is my lucky day as none of them got pissed at me for crossing into their personal space. No puffy cheeks and lips though but these close-up photographs are more than good enough for me today.
