01 Feb Sandollars Friends and Photography
Two names I always enjoy hearing together are Paul and Koni. We always have a good time. Koni is a breath of fresh air and Paul is a pleasure to learn from and talk cameras. Paul is a superb photographer from the wonderful state of South Dakota. His images of the state are amazing. This trip I got to meet Koni’s son Ross and his wife Danielle. (Both Graduates from the University of Nebraska) We had a relaxing ride on the water and the beach was full of sand dollars. Paul was busy capturing the landscapes on the beach while the rest of us walked, talked and shelled on the beach. Paul took some great photos of Koni, Danielle and I looking at a sable palm. (Thanks Paul) I was pointing out the different uses of the plant and how the natives used the plant as cordage fiber for their fishing nets. The trip back to Captiva was filled with a quick stop by Captain Brian’s “secret spot”, followed by a longer stop at a local watering hole on one of the islands where smugglers and President’s daughters have both sat.
