Hey Isaac, welcome back! I remember "the good old days" when it was me, you, chris, ed, and then a bunch of people I haven't seen on here (atleast TWP) since I've been back. I've been wondering what's been up with you... I also took a long hiatus, I took a conductor's job with a railroad and for about a year and a half was too tired, busy, and burned out to shoot anything other than my 2 trips a year to Lake Superior. Now I'm an engineer with a gravy night job so I've gotten out more in this last year than in almost all of the previous 3 years combined, I'm just too busy now to remember to submit anything
Your camera-boom Mustang shot has stuck with me though, good job! For me, that was always the highest compliment: "Remember such-and-such shot you did YEARS ago? It was great and I can still see it in my head."
ANYWAY, (before I get doing something and forget again) I was missing the lake pretty bad today so here's one from vaca this last September.
"Now just turn and walk away, don't look back when I say 'goodbye paradise'
Days go by and life goes on, I feel I've been away too long
What I would give to be with you, days go by and life drags on
Feel I've been away too long, for much too long, yeah
And all the while that I'm away, don't let our love fade away
Don't you fade away
Now as sure as the sun is gonna shine, the day will come
Now I'm waitin' for the day, there'll be no more sayin' 'goodbye paradise'
My sweet paradise, you are the reason why it tears me up inside
And I break down and cry, didn't wanna say 'goodbye paradise'
I'm comin' home to you tonight, comin' home to you tonight
So hold on tight, tonight I'm on my way back home to paradise"
