Figure?!
I just put it down to botox..

Zig, stay safe up there, I was in Groton,Ct. in the navy when the perfect storm hit up there in the 90's that was no fun, & as Ted mentioned the Navy sent all the subs out to sea during the storm, but at the time my boat was still being constructed at general dynamics so had to weather the storm on land.

Scouse, botox indeed!!, I had a client last year, who her & her mother insisted I change her eye color on every picture from her natural brown eyes to blue, I was not comfortable doing this at all, but it is hard to argue ethics with someone buying $700 worth of prints.

Very good Zig! Really quite impressive for a first time. Not something I would even try. Not that anyone would ask...a guy who shoots bugs probably isn't going to be you first choice

Good morning Charles,

Thanks. We'll be busy today making preparations to hunker down for Earl's arrival tomorrow afternoon into the night. Each time I look at the wether reports coming out, Earl's tracking closer to the Cape. NWS now says Earl should track about 50miles east of Nantucket. That means that our town is about 80 miles from Earl's track. Way too close.

Zig

Hi John,

Thanks for the kind words.

You like to shoot bugs, I like to shoot birds and landscapes. We can still shoot people when necessary. It's just the other stuff is more fun.

First time I've had a chance to go through this thread. Lots of good advice on photography AND hurricanes. I'll get a chance to try the photography advice more frequently than the hurricane advice here in Iowa. Zig, I agree with the young man's parents, good photos. Stay safe.

50 miles east means you'll most likely be well within hurricame-force winds, and this one looks quite ominous. 450 miles or so from the coast is just about right for me....you can see enough rain as it is from that far away.

I have a friend down in Louisiana who is supposed to be going to the US Open this weekend. He's positive the only reason this ones' going up the east coast is because he is going to be up there.

I have no idea if I could shoot people, at least not very well. Other than a self portrait or two I've never used my DSLRs for shooting people. I'll stick with bugs and birds and other little stuff.
