We didn’t have a lot of time to spend at the Pittsburgh Regatta this year, which is much to my regret. However, I did manage to get one decent shot of this guy flying high over his jet ski on the Allegheny River. Most of the flyers had someone backing them up on the jet ski but not this guy. He was flying solo.
This was our first year for visiting the Three Rivers Regatta in Pittsburgh. It was interesting, different and a lot of fun. We didn’t get to spend too much time. We had been out all afternoon registering voters and we were hot and tired. Next year I would like to make a day of it. See some music, take a tripod and do some serious photography
Below are a couple of snapshots form this year’s event.
If the wind is low and the waves small you will usually see people on longboards paddling through the water off Sunset Beach Florida as the sun sets. If the sky is gray and the winds are gusting there are no beach loungers walking the shore just all the young dudes.
I love the Pittsburgh Steelers and I have been one of the fans that have been able to forgive Ben Rothlisberger and embrace him as our quarterback. Big Ben is a great team leader and statistically is every bit as good as Aaron Rodgers. However, nobody “looks” better than Aaron Rodgers throwing a football. He is the Jerry West of the NFL and his silhouette could be the logo for the NFL in the same way that West is for the NBA. This picture was taken at Heinz Field during a pre-season game last Sunday.
The Steeler defense still needs some work although some players like Heywood and Shazier looked great in yesterday’s pre season game against the Packers The first team offense looked good and although it was hot, the crowd was rowdy and ready for football.
There are a number of boats that offer parasailing on Lake George. My favorite was the Smile Boat. Not because the parasail design is that great but because it represents the opposite of how I would feel if I were parasailing. Even when I was younger this is not something I would have considered doing. I liked water skiing and still like to snorkel. I learned how to like roller coasters and thrill rides but parasailing has never been on my list.
