North Port Wrestling



Last week's assignment for the Sun, the top two made it to print.  I haven't been to a high school wrestling meet in 25 years I would guess.  North Port just rolled right over the visiting Southeast Seminoles, the only close match the whole night was the middle shot here.

Miami






       My assignment yesterday took me to Miami.  I have only been a few times before and never really got to look around.  I spent too much time looking at the new murals for Art Basel, and not enough getting the material that I was suppose to be getting. 
       I got to see the whole city though from the palacial mansions of Coconut Grove to the run down apartments and houses in Little Haiti, I witnessed it.  I only spoke to one person the whole day.  A mexican in Little Havana," ┬┐Hablas espa├▒ol?"
      "Un Pequito" I replied.
      He told me," You walking around this city with a camera like that you better be two people."
      "Oh I know, believe me I know."
      "Ok" he looked at me and shook his head.
      As I got to my car to get back in I said, "Gracias."
      "Orale." and he kept on walking.

Sign Waver Fight Club

Sometimes I wonder, as I am driving past these sign holders; is there a hierarchy?  Does one pay more than the other? Do the "We Buy Gold" people sit and drink with the KFC and Litter Caesars guys? Or do they fight and have big knock down drag outs where they use their placards as shields and lances in parking lots at the end of the day, and if that's the case I surely want to see one of these "tournaments."  I'm sure the first rule of Sign Waver Fight Club, is that you don't talk about Sign Waver Fight Club. 

I bet she is a beast in the ring.

30 November 2012


I spend so much of my time in the car on most days that I am constantly looking for interesting things; I have been known too jump three lanes of traffic, stop in medians, or take multiple u-turns in order to get shots of the things that catch my eye.  These are a couple of things that I ran across on the final day of November.  First was some new graffiti on Palm Beach Blvd the second a Ferris wheel on Pine Island Rd in Cape Coral.
