Buena Vista Family Trip, February 24, 2007
My brother made a brief visit during one of his many trips to Cocoa for work. We spent some time at Disney's Buena Vista shopping district and had lunch at Rainforest Cafe. Our friend, Jeff, joined us.
Office Social at Fort Wilderness, March 7, 2007
Prior to budget-tightening measures, my office's social committee planned some sort of shindig about once a quarter. Some were just little get-togethers at the office. Others, like today, were full-blown excursions such as this day at Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground. Many people also took the time to visit some of the other Disney resorts.
MacDill AirFest, April 1, 2007
Incredible display of air maneuvers by many aircraft, including the Blue Angels. Though admission was free, I feel as though I paid the price with sunburn and the hour it took waiting to get out of the base.
The first 14 photos are Photoshop-enhanced versions of my favorites. The entire remainder of this Set are raw/unedited/uncaptioned versions of all my shots—more than 350!
Disney Parks with Chris (aka Retrophisch), May 20-21, 2007
My pal, Chris Turner, came to Florida on vacation. I was quite happy—just ahead of my busiest week of the year—to manage two days off to join him at the Disney parks.
Parents' and Aunt/Uncle's Trip To Hawaii, May 8-23, 2007
No, I'm not personally the one who went to Hawaii on this trip. I wished!!! This trip was taken by my parents and my aunt and uncle. I'm insanely jealous. I offered to host this album of their photos so friends and family could see.
I have not yet managed to copy over all the photo captions—it was quite a bit of work just to get the photos themselves over to Flickr and in the right order. Adding all the text descriptions will be an over-time project, as well as attempting to add keyword tags and geotags.
IMPORTANT NOTE if you are viewing this album via photos.albj.net—Flickr imposes a 500-item limit through the API. This album is bigger than that limit, so to view items after the first 500, you’ll have to visit the Flickr album at: flic.kr/s/aHsjP2CakU
MacBook Pro Unboxing, June 5-6, 2007
iPhone Unboxing, July 1, 2007
My activation wasn't immediate, but it fortunately was less than 24 hours.
Pool Time With Cousin's Kids, August 8, 2007
My month-long vacation in 2007 started with a visit home to Tampa for a family brunch on Sunday and a morning trip to the pool with the kids on Monday.
Louisville and Mammoth Cave, August 21-24, 2007
A repeat trip to Louisville to visit Andy. We went again to the Kentucky State Fair, visited the Louisville Slugger production plant, and took a trip to Mammoth Cave.
Stillwaters Lodge, September 1-2, 2007
This housing facility of Camp Kulaqua is absolutely off the charts. Apparently, a wealthy, but elderly, couple moved and sold it on the cheap to the camp. It has been converted for use as an executive retreat center. I was fortunate to have been given one of the rooms as a thanks for volunteering to come up Labor Day weekend and do some portraits. There are nine bedrooms in here and can house more than 22 people if rollaway cots are used.
Casa Feliz, Winter Park, September 16, 2007
A beautiful and historical Spanish farmhouse in Winter Park. Casa Feliz means "Happy House." It largely serves as a rental location for private parties, weddings, and business events.
Pimp My Golf Cart, September 30, 2007
2007 Epcot/Animal Kingdom/MGM Trip, November 4, 2007
iPhoto Book Damage, November 17, 2007
Update to this story, Apple (to my immense shock) refunded all five books! The option given in response is to, within 40 days, requeue the order since they keep submitted PDFs for that amount of time, and have my CC be re-charged. But I only need one more book, not five, so I'm thinking I'll just upload a fresh order for one book through iPhoto.
Spectacle of Dancing Lights, December 16, 2007
Disney MGM Studios transformed the city street area of the park into this brightly decorated Christmas light display which animates in flashing patterns to a holiday song every few minutes.
Disney World With Niece and Nephew, December 20, 2007
My brother's family returned for another trip to Magic Kingdom. This time, the kids were two years older and related better to what they saw around them. They both had a blast. The higlight of the day was meeting all the Winnie the Pooh characters during lunch at the Crystal Palace. This album includes photos at the end from both my brother's and parents' cameras.
Christmas, December 22-25, 2007
This year's Christmas included my brother's family in addition to my cousin's family and aunt/uncle. There were 13 of us in all! Note: this album first contains my photos, followed by my brother's, and ending with my parents' camera.
Miscellaneous/random shots taken in 2007 which I did not include as part of any other set of photos.
