Pool Time

Mary bought a special fountain that hooks into her pool's filter return. Stella LOVES it!

Catching every drop ...

Look at that smile!

Kingsley Plantation

Kingsley Plantation, located on the northern tip of Fort George Island, is part of the Timucuan Ecological & Historic Preserve managed by the U.S. National Park Service.

At over 200 years old, the owner's house is the oldest surviving plantation home in Florida.



Mom, Hank & I went on an informative tour with a National Park Service Ranger.



Slave quarters ... the remains of 25 cabins

Brad's iPhone Pix

This year I hired Brad Mangin to shoot iPhone photos at THE PLAYERS for social media. He shot some great stuff!


 
Brad's awesome blog post:


Cam Inman is a well-known San Francisco Bay Area sportswriter & golf guy who sent out this tweet to over 30,000 Twitter followers.

Brad's co-author of three Giants books, Brian Murphy tweeted about him a few times to his over 46,000 Twitter followers and talked about Brad's PLAYERS coverage on the air many times to his morning radio show listeners on KNBR 680 in San Francisco, the 50,000 watt sports talk station that is the radio home of the Giants, Warriors & 49ers.

The TechCrunch story got a lot of play worldwide. Here are some examples ...


Below are links to some of the attention Brad's PLAYERS iPhone photography has gotten on tech & social media websites worldwide ...

Beautiful Weather

After breakfast at Panera ...

... it was a beautiful morning to hang out in the backyard.



 Stella sat calmly watching the ducks next door. She didn't even bark!

Gimme that hose!

It doesn't get any better than this for Stella. She LOVES the hose!

Bark in the Park at Citi Field

Amy, Howie, Elyssa & Nikki took Bailey & Casey to the Met game today.


Amy ... unable to avoid the spotlight since dancing on the stage with Bruce Springsteen, was featured on ESPN when Bailey stole her French fries.

THE PLAYERS Final Round

Today was the first day I went out on the course.

I took Brad & Cy to the Rules office to photograph Will Wilcox's scorecard from his hole-in-one on 17 (the first in 14 years).

Scotty was a poser on the 18th tee.



2016 Champion Jason Day


Cy is always talking about the fact that I invented back-button focus. It's true & documented in this Canon book where they did a profile on me ...

Awesome Bayer Film

Since Hank & Nora did so well in the photo shoot for Bayer's ad campaign & Annual Report last year, a crew came in from Germany Apr 8-10 to shoot a short feature film. Even my mom makes a couple of brief appearances. The only one missing is Stella. At least she was featured in the Annual Report. The film premiered in Cologne, West Germany last week. Please check it out. It's really awesome! Hank & Nora are stars!
