I'll add a few as well. I keyed in on individual people more than the floats this year. Yes, pretty girls and cute little kids are favorite subjects. :lol: This was our third Mardi Gras parade as snowbirds and we enjoyed it the most of any. I also sampled my first bowl of Jambalaya. Yum! http://www....

A belated thanks. I was going for the footprints in the sand and got the splash for free! My camera stayed dry, but my sneakers didn't fair so well that day.

Nothing has been done on the Beach Colony pool yet, no. We did notice a couple of men who I'd guess to be a superintendent type and foreman type with clipboards standing at the edge of the sand-filled pool for some time last week pointing and talking for some time. The main effort on the grounds rig...

Thanks for the "thanks" all. Those were shot quickly one day last January '07 for the family back in the mid-west to get them pumped up about visiting the place they had heard my wife and I go gah-gah over for several years now. I'm happy to say it worked and helped build up their excitement about v...

Hockeydad We brought our 4 adult kids, spouses and 7 8/9ths grandkids to stay at the Regency in June of last year and it was a trip of their lives they all said. While snow-birding on the island at this time last year, I took some photos of the area to try to build some excitement as you are trying ...

I've had my D80 manual on my computer in PDF format since almost the beginning and I have rarely shot Auto mode with the exception of the first month or two I owned the camera. I'm not sure just how long I've had the D80 but I know I took it to the Oct 2006 World Series in St. Louis so it's been a w...

Others may not enjoy my getting into the specifics of the Nikon, put I have to ask. My D80 has a setting that says "Auto". It also has a separate P setting for "P"rogram AE. Do you consider both of those automatic and both to be avoided even with the adjustable feature on Program mode described belo...

Thanks for the list of tips, Kenny. Sorry to hear that my 18x200 lens is not the best for sunsets or at least as good as another lens might be. I have so many $$$ invested in the Nikon D80 SLR and my zoom lens, external flash, etc. at this time that I need to start getting some good photos of "somet...

Welcome from an Iowa snowbird, snowbird. I attempted to start a thread in September of last year about places to day-trip, things to do, etc and was disappointed the thread didn't take off. I could see a listing on that subject most helpful to snowbirds like us. See: http://www.navarrebeachlife.com/...

Another real winner, Kenny. My all time favorite I think is the one from a week or so ago of the woman and small child walking towards shore on a dock with the sunset in the background. What I'd give to be able to take one like that! I bought my Nikon D80 SLR and 18x200 DX VR zoom lens about a year ...

While we're tossing out our "wish list" for others to do . . if the county owns the land Tom Thumb is on, how about one or the other adding a sidewalk/spur from the existing sidewalk/trail that would continue on to the intersection of Gulf Blvd and the causeway road instead of forcing pedestrians to...

Geography Help Needed

When Kenny's webcam looks west on a good day, you can clearly see the high-rises at Pensacola Beach. When I look east from the 17th floor of where I am located, I see many high-rises also but I'm wondering if you can tell me what/how far I am seeing. Here is a photo taken this morning that I've "deh...

This current weather is not what we wished for but we know it is temporary. We're tough so we can handle it with a smile. Temps do look very good for t...
