at the beach

i have discovered it's near impossible to blog, while at work or at the beach, where i've been most of the time. the surf is up here, luckily coinciding with a classic surf contest that i've been watching and taking a few pictures of. i'm on my way down to the finals this morning. my husband finished yesterday in first place in both divisions he was in, the masters and grandmasters, so he'll surf again today. just when he confided he might not compete anymore, chuck found new inspiration in the form of one small boy. travis, our surf crazy grandson. this boy is his most dedicated fan (well, there would be me...i have the starry eyes for him, but i don't run up and down the beach. anymore. hee hee). see where we are here.

i did want to share with you before i head out today, a coupon you might want to take advantage of, it's for a photobook at 'my publisher'. so sorry i wasn't on this sooner, it expires tomorrow, but you have ninety days to make your book once you buy the voucher. for ten dollars you can make a hard cover, twenty page book. i made a tutorial for bookmaking at 'my publisher' here. the link for the coupon is here. i think it's a great way to try it out. i hope you'll let me know if you do.

to the beach now!
love, lori

  3. Have fun at the beach. I used to photograph surfers for their portfolios when they were trying to get sponsorships. That was one of my favorite jobs. Congrats once again to your husband.

  9. Congratulations, Chuck!!! I think Travis picked his hero very wisely!!! Hope you have a good (winning!!) day!!

    (My photography professor is an ex (or old) "surfer dude" from Miami--still involved from the photography end now--travels around the world to photographically catch those waves and surfers--is pulling together a book due out in March--a collaboration with some other surfers and photographers--to coincide with a major something opening in FL; while he was talking about it the other day, I'm afraid I was lost in Photoshop and not paying close attention.)

  15. Way to go Chuck!

    If I had a beach to hang out on I don't think I'd be blogging either!

  16. Lori, thank you for the coupon. I tried this a few years ago with another
    publisher, and have always meant to make another. Procrasinator that I am, this is the jump-start that I needed.
    I've got my fingers crossed that it's idiot proof,as that's where my tech level lies.
    And no,,,had I a beach, I wouldn't be blogging either! Surfer,,,wow!
    Thanks again,,,

  22. How exciting for your husband! And even better that another generation is just as interested in keeping up the family surfing tradition.
