Can't put it down

"Early morning passerby make their way by the Kite Loft headquarters on Fifth Street on the Boardwalk in Ocean City, Md., Monday, September 22."

As previously mentioned, I went to Ocean City, Md., over the weekend. It was a rare occasion to have three days off in a row and with summer, well, basically over with the first day of fall being the other day, I couldn't pass up the trip.

Much like any other visit, my travel mostly consisted of consuming greasy, unhealthy, sky-rocketing cholesterol meals.

I cannot say I don't love it, but on Saturday I ate: eggs, bacon and potatoes for breakfast. Piezano's pizza (by far one of the best pizza joints in Ocean City) for lunch. Chicken wings and beer for happy hour. More beer and a foot-long cheesesteak sub with doughnuts for a late dinner.

Only if Dining at Large had a top ten list of don't-eat-these-all-in-one-day-when-at-the-beach list.

Until she does, I'll continue to gain weight and try and walk it off the next day when down on the shore.

Aside from all the food I managed to shovel in, and yes I had sushi (I am a sushi connoisseur, even though nothing in the states compares to Japan), the weather was nice and the crowds were thin.

But the one thing I never do when on a vacation, be it a couple days or weeks, is put down my camera.

One would think after shooting photos all day and evening that the last thing I would want to do is shoot more. I guess it goes to show that I love what I do and it's not really a profession, rather than a way of life.

I think I've touched on that before on here, so I won't go into detail now. Not to mention I am falling asleep as I finish this post up.

Although my camera was on my shoulder all weekend, I really didn't shoot that much. I had estimated maybe having shot 50 frames total, so I just checked. 71. That's nothing for three days.
And from those 71 frames, it was apparent I had shot a bunch of silhouettes for some odd reason. I have no idea why, but I liked the above the best from the weekend.

Possibly because I was thinking that I was so full at the time that I would never be able to float so effortlessly like a kite. Who knows. I always see those kites when I am on the boardwalk, but have never captured them before.

Until my next trip to the beach, I'll try and eat a bit healthier.
