Saturday Photohunt #2 - Drink

A little something different. The first shot in my essay is from Spring, 1999. I was on my way home to get ready for a Jimmy Buffett concert when I found this "spot news" outside my subdivision. I missed the pre-concert tailgate as I was at the Orlando Sentinel where they processed my film and bought and published this photo, my first (And only) real newspaper shot!


At one of his hangouts, my brother's face through his glass of beer.


Same night, our table during trivia, the Jack & Coke special.....

Thanks, it was a one-time moment of pride. That's the deal with spot news, you just have to be in the right place at the right time.

Nice story with this set of pix. None of my stuff has ever appeared in print - so congrats.

Excellent shot on the first one. I remember when I was growing up in Boston the local teens would pop open one of the hydrants just for us to cool off.

Happy Hunting

I'd try to act hurt about your comments against Pepsi and the Cubs, by I'm merely a supporter by marriage.

Love the newspaper shot! Good timing on your part, right?

I used to be a big jack and coke fan, but I've since moved on to gin and tonic. Not so sweet...
