This past weekend I got kidnapped by a friend and taken to Gulf Shores, Alabama where the annual Shrimp Fest was being hosted. I had never been before and this years’ was the 40th annual. Only in the south could they host a festival that large totally centered around “fried” seafood. To say the least, it was a fast and furious weekend.
Last week in my blog I pointed out that there are two things that are pretty much guaranteed come October every year. One is the change of colors in the fall season and the second is my annual trek to Las Vegas to instruct at a four-day photographic workshop with Supershoots.com. My accountant, after reading my blog (which I was surprised) so aptly pointed out that there was a “third”! The final days to get my taxes prepared and submitted for the previous year, which I tend to wait, till the last moment in October every year to submit. I found her “observation” to be quite on point and extremely humorous.
While in Vegas last week teaching a workshop, I found myself on the last day with a few hours to spare so I decided to drive up to Hoover Dam and see the completed overpass. The bridge offers the perfect view of the Dam with Lake Mead in the background. For those that have never seen Hoover Dam it is one of the most incredible structures ever built by man. The Dam project began in 1931 and was completed in 1936. A total of 3,250,000 cubic yards of concrete was used to build the arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon on the Colorado River.
Next time you find yourself looking at a slot machine, do your self a favor and take the drive up to Boulder City for some fresh air and enjoy the view of this exceptional feat by man.
