Santa and Elves in Pensacola ,,,

IMG_0011 Santa and Elves_ SFW

Santa and his helper Elves just happened to drop into Chick-fil-A on Bayou Blvd yesterday.  Luckily, I just stumbled in with my camera to capture a few photos of the moment.  I have to say that it was lucky for Santa to have such cute and able helpers with him.  The Elf on the right was really great going around and gathering up kids to visit with Santa … she is really going to be a great “PR” Elf when she grows up.  No, that can not be right since elves never can grow up.  Here are a few more …

I hope that you did not notice holding the iPhone in the first photo … I retouched one other image with him holding it, but did not bother with that one.  I am hoping that all you are saying  how cute Santa’s ” little-helper’s” are and not even noticing what Santa is holding.  Thanks for looking and please check back.  Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas 2015 … Frank

Frankie Ballard at The Pensacola Interstate Fair …

Ballard Band_5x5_26 Oct 15 _ SFW

This past Saturday night Pam and I went out to the Pensacola Interstate Fair to see Frankie Ballard.   I am by no means a concert photographer, but as I always say in this digital world that we live in today … If you can’t shoot’em good, just shoot a lot!!  And that is pretty much what I did.  I did not have access to the center aisle right in front of the stage, so I was off to the left as you look at the stage.  Not really much of a problem since Frankie and the boys move all over the stage.  As always, none of these images are straight out of the camera and all have been worked up in Photoshop.  So here we go …

I have others that I have posted to my Instagram account if you want to see more Frankie. Here is a link to my Instagram account if you are interested.  I have been posting there and have sort of neglected my blogs, only because it attracts a different audience and I have met some people that I would never have come across with my two blogs.  One major regret that taking these concert photos made me realize is that I never carried a camera to all of the concerts that I went to in the late 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s.  Back in those early days you could just wander up to the foot of the stage and hang around if there was an open spot.  There was no obstacles like “security” to stop you from taking photos of your favorite band until I would say sometime in the 1980’s.  I thought about it once or twice, but never bothered lugging a camera bag around with me … now I really regret not taking my camera because I have been taking photos since junior high school.  Thanks for looking and if anyone else was there let me know what you think.  All that I can say is that my days of being ” Young and Crazy ” are long gone … Please feel free to comment and check back.  Frank

leave a comment »

Here are a few random candid photos that I made this past Saturday at Olive Baptist Church where Pensacola Catholic High School has held it’s graduation for the past years.   These are just a few that of the ones that I made and I will also put up some from the Baccalaureate that was held at St’ Paul’s Catholic Church the night before later.  I am not going to post any comments, since most people viewing these were probably there at the graduation.  Here we go …

IMG_2931  Candid Girls _ Color Balanced_SFW

Several weeks ago Pensacola Catholic High School had their Senior Prom down at the Pensacola Museum of Commerce ( I still think of it as The Transportation Museum ) and I went down to take a few photos of the King and Queen.  I was early for the walk-out and made some random photos of the kids dancing and having fun.  Here are a few random images and several of the king and queen …

There are a handful of photos for you to view … I have more here on my Zenfolio site if anyone is interested in viewing them,  I should have posted these sooner, but I have been busy with other things and have ignored by blogs the last several weeks.  I have several posts ready to go and I will put them up this week.  Thanks for looking and if anyone has any questions or comments please ask … Frank
