Day one: After a detour in Islamorada to make arrangements to meet our friend Kara later in the night and an amazing lunch at a little place called Castaways in Marathon (just before the 7 mile bridge and after about 5 U-turns because it’s impossible to find) my sister and I found ourselves riding around in the back of a 1953 Ford Pickup Truck with our friend and Key West local Doug, scouting locations.
An hour later we were shooting sunsets from a boat graveyard one key up from Key West with Kara and our new friend Jason (this shot is for you Jason!).
(2018 Edit: We’ve had a few different website hosts since this blog post! We’re looking for this image, too.)
The night progressed by dodging intoxicated tourists along Duval Street, suspending my Canon 5D Mark II off the edge of rooftops, and eventually exploring the abstract. Once I filled up my cards I took it as a sign to relax and join my friends who had already meet up with the Mayor of Islamorada for a much needed glass of wine at The Grand Vino. We had a great time, I made some more new friends from Louis Backyard and introduced them to the Vignette demo app for the Sprint HTC EVO phone. Their sunset photo’s will get even cooler now. By now my friends who agreed to have a drink at every bar I needed to shoot from were feeling great and it was time to head back to Doug’s house on Love Lane.
