Got back from my trip in Florida just in time for an activation of the City of Norfolk's Emergency Operations Center. This was my first tour of duty with Norfolk during an emergency and I was very impressed by the way my coworkers pulled together. Many of my team at the City's Information Technology Department served a 24 hour shift at the Compostella Elementary School on shelter duty while others worked shifts at the EOC supporting technology and vital communications. Here Jim Redick the City's Director of Emergency Preparedness and Response conducts the 6:00pm briefing. iPhone 5, 1/24 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 50, Camera+ app.

YNot Pizza has been making great hand-tossed pizzas in Hampton Roads Virginia for 19 years. This is our regular location in the Kempsville area of Virginia Beach. Our favorite pizza - red sauce cheese pizza with tomatos, spinach and feta cheese. The name YNot comes from the reverse spelling of owner Tony DiSilvestro's first name. iPhone 4 using the Camera+ app and the Olloclip fisheye lens.

Empty Beach

We headed out to Sandbridge Beach late this afternoon. With stormy weather moving in we found an almost empty beach. It was really relaxing with the wind, surf and rapidly changing sky. We stayed for about 30 minutes before lifeguards closed the beach because of the threat of lightning. iPhone 4 with the Olloclip fisheye lens.

156 - Storm a Coming

From 365 Project
Summer storms roll in from the west. This shot was taken looking directly east towards Virginia Beach, VA. Almost 3.5" of rain fell with this storm, flooding area streets and trying up rush hour traffic for hours. Canon G10, 1/250 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 200, 54 mm equivalent focal length.
