MelaMount for the iPad Pro

From Nikon to the iPad Pro for me and why.

It was about that time when I decided that it was time to downsize and consolidate. I needed a setup that was lighter in weight and more portable, these things would make it easier to use and in the end, make it possible to shoot more pics and video.

The result, I switched to the iPad Pro, with a MelaMount and detachable lenses. Now, I can shoot photos or videos and have the convenience of having one device with internet access.

A hot spot on a "Cold Spring" day!

How was that for a catchy title? Well trust me, the day we visited the quaint little town of Cold Spring, New York, was a bit on the chilly side, and this little coffee shop was a welcome site.

I use the term “coffee shop” loosely because the “Cupoccino Cafe” has a little bit everything from freshly brewed coffee to sandwiches, and everything in between!

The Ringling, in Sarasota, Florida

“While visiting The Ringling you are welcome to explore the Bayfront Gardens at your leisure. As awe-inspiring as any work of art, The Ringling Bayfront Gardens are a living treasure. Courting couples statuary watch over Mable’s Rose Garden. The shade the majestic Banyan trees provide. The delight inspired by the whimsy of the Dwarf Garden. The echoes from the past where the Circus King finally rests in the Secret Garden.”

Dr. Who?

Denise and I took a day trip to this years Tampabay Area Renaissance Festival at MOSI this past weekend. And, do you know who we saw there? Dr. Who? of course!

I am the only one who thinks that it was kind of ironic that I was leaning up against a “time machine” with Dr. Who, while I was wearing an “I can freeze time” t-shirt?

Part 2, the Ringling Circus Museum. The wonder behind the splendor.

The circus was self-sustaining. There was no outsourcing in those days. If they needed something, they didn’t buy it, they made it! If there was an obstacle, they would overcome it. Life in the circus was hard, but you never saw it from the outside, you only saw the smiles of the clowns and felt the magic in the air. (I would suppose that if you close your eyes, you can almost hear the circus music and feel the excitement of the circus you experienced as a child, even today.)
