Fort Lauderdale Intracoastal Waterway and Graphics Search - Picture
That's how my day has been all week.
I am looking for a specific picture to be used as the background for a website that I'm the webmaster for.
Take the picture, sample it, layer it on top of a sunburst, then fade it so it looks like a watermark.
If you do, you were probably sitting on my couch discussing changes to that website.
Problem is that it wasn't where I thought it might be.
That's what happens when you take a lot of pictures. I'm in a place and a time where I pretty much have to take a camera with me whenever I go out. Cargo Shorts and Extra Pockets are my friend. That camera fits in there nicely. Phone cameras just don't cut it. While Digital SLR with Macro Zoom Lens and all that stuff is a dream, this works well.
Out on a trip around town gives me an excuse to be a hopefully not terribly obnoxious tourist, leaning out of the door of the car taking "Holiday Snaps" of the surrounding countryside. Even being stuck in traffic can be fun when the bridge opens. You're going to be sitting in the same spot for about 5 minutes while, as Homer puts it, "Bridge Goes Up. Bridge Goes Down.". So lean over the railing with a good grip and get Just That Shot, even if there was a tourist standing in almost the same spot a day ago got Just That Same Shot.
Well never mind that, it did turn out pretty didn't it? SE 17th Street Causeway looking North from the bridge.
I really don't want to schedule another photo shoot...
Now, where is that picture?
