Emerald Isle (NC) opposes seismic testing offshore

EMERALD ISLE | A Carteret County town has gone on record against seismic testing off the coast as North Carolina’s governor has expressed his support for offshore energy exploration.

The Emerald Isle Board of Commissioners unanimously approved drafting a resolution opposing proposed seismic testing off the coast related to offshore oil and gas exploration.

The action came with applause from audience members who attended Tuesday night’s regular meeting of the board, which included a presentation by Carteret County Shore Protection Manager Greg Rudolph on the Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program for 2017-2022.

This is good news, but what did these people expect when they voted (in Carteret County)-- by 72%-- for
McCrory in 2012? When are the people in NC going to wake up?

The Photographer: Self Portrait

I thought it might be fun to see who is behind the camera most of the time
by turning the camera around and pointing it at ourselves.

I'll start with a shot I took while returning from our weekend trip to DC to see the cherry blossoms.
We rode the train--which was fun!--and it was a real challenge to get a shot without a blurred
background (shot was taken while moving) and lighting that felt right.

How about the rest of you? Care to share a selfie?!?

Cherry Blossom Festival in DC

My husband and I are here for the weekend as kind of an un-birthday trip. I've never seen the cherry trees
in bloom in DC, so a couple of weeks ago we planned to come up this weekend.

I was at the Tidal Basin by 8 am this morning and it was already crowded! I walked ALL the way around it.

A few of my favorite shots:
