Celebration of New Year 2019

On January 1, 2019, we celebrated a brand new year!

It rang in with a celebration of joy and cheer!

It was at the Poodle Playhouse in the middle of the day

We had lots of delicious food, fun, and even a band to play!

That made everyone want to tap or move those feet!

Those in attendance ranged from four to ninety-four, 

We even had dogs that danced and begged for more!

The Celebration of 2019 was a great time for all!

Thank you for attending , I think we all had a ball!

Shrimp Boats Daytona Beach

Daytona Beach goers are used to watching shrimp boats near the shore maybe wondering how long and how far they stay offshore.

This inquiry arises as the summer season is upon us here on the east coast of central Florida.

You may have not known shrimp season is closed during April and May off Florida waters out to 3 miles from our white sandy beach shoreline. Shrimp boats are allowed to begin working closer to shoreline as of June 1, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Volusia County rules require shrimp boats to be at least 500 yards off our sandy beaches.

The period of  June 1 and March 1, shrimp boats inside the range of one mile of shore are only permitted to deploy two nets, with each net no more sizable than 500 square feet. Any larger netted shrimp boats have to be 1 nautical mile offshore.

Shrimp boats are a photographers dream when photographed so close to our Daytona Beach shoreline. As a professional photographer I have been using many types of cameras and lenses through out the years chasing shrimp boats and plan to continuing capturing many more beautiful Florida seascapes by creating photographs as you see published here.

A shrimp boat ran aground in Ormond Beach for almost two weeks before a barge pulled it back out to sea. Interesting beach attraction for tourist and all local residents as it rested on the shoreline.

Photographing cloned pets

Cloning the preservation of  your pet dog allows you to recreate and carry on your loved pet to a genetic twin – I recently had the enjoyment in photographing this cloned adorable puppy sharing many of her original mothers character and features.

This beautiful Cocker Spaniel puppy was coned from her mothers genes producing almost a perfect indistinguishable twin dog.
