Ricky Bobby Strikes

img_4682-1

If you look close you can see my friend Elvin surfing the closer of the two peaks(waves) in the foreground. I was keeping my shutter speed relatively quick to be catching a lightning bolt during the exposure, but when I saw Elvin standing up I shouted, “please let me capture Ricky Bobby(nickname) with a lightning bolt!”. As soon as my mouth closed Elvin got to his feet and this lightning bolt struck perfectly in frame. If this sounds incredible…it totally was…but Henry @hendooo was standing right next to me and(I’d assume😜)would happily cooberate the facts. Yet another notch in the belt of the luckiest arsehole with a camera. Many thanks to the powers that be for blessing me with the opportunities to snap an image like this.πŸ™πŸ»πŸ‘†πŸ»πŸ‘ΌπŸΎπŸ‘ΌπŸ»πŸ‘ΌπŸΏπŸ‘ΌπŸ½

Double Exposed

During May I wound up taking my first batch of “double exposures”(yes on a DSLR, so it’s in camera and less tricky) and had a blast. I love how unique every photo tends to be and have shot about 5 sessions worth of them now. Here are some of my favorites from the first couple times I tried them in Mexico.
