Here are several photographs that I made for the Pensacola Catholic High School Charisma 2013 yearbook.  It was a terrible looking afternoon in November when I made these photographs … I was surprised that it did not rain while we were out on Pensacola Beach.  Below is an image made at the Cross on Pensacola Beach.  The Cross Statue commemorates the site of the first church service in the New World.  Most people forget that the Spanish established the first settlement in Pensacola, I am not sure how many years before St. Augustine.  But, bad weather and a host of other problems caused the Spanish to abandon their settlement here, making St. Augustine the first permanent settlement in the Americas.  Here are several more images …

I have several more variations of these photos and when I get them worked up, I will post them.  I take so many images for the yearbook and they only use a few of them, I thought that I would start sharing some of the “out-takes” with you.  Thanks again for looking and as usual, all comments are welcomed and appreciated … Frank

As most of you know, I have taken photos for the Pensacola Catholic High School Charisma yearbook since … 1978.  It is hard to believe, because it seems like only yesterday that I graduated from UWF (  17 Mar 1977 ) and on 18 Mar 1977, I was a full-time photographer.  Whenever I take photos for the Charisma , I never post any of them until the yearbook comes out.  Here are several that I made for the magazine insert that goes along with the yearbook.  I cannot remember this underclassman’s name off the top of my head, but I am sure that I will find out from  someone.  Here are a few more … I am not sure which of these they used or if they used them at all, I only looked at the yearbook and the insert for a minute.  I will have to drop by the school and get my copy.  Here are a couple more that I thought were interesting …

I thought that the two editors that worked this up did a great job of creating a series of images that told a story.  Here is the last image …

I have several more posts from other images that I made for this past 2013 yearbook that I will put up shortly..  I always take so many images and they can usually use just a few, I thought that I would share a few more of them with everyone.  Thanks for looking and all comments are appreciated … Frank
