Photos of Fifth On the Floor @ Crum’s Bar

Last night I went out to hang to Crum’s Bar to hang out with AutopsyIV of NineBullets.net fame and see Fifth on the Floor play. Some great sounds from the band and Matty Rodgers (guitars, mandolin, harmonica, vocals) was killing it with some really unexpected chops on the guitar. They’re playing again tonight. If you’ve not been to Crum’s Bar (65 craft beers on tap) and are looking for something to do, go check it out. In the meantime, check out some photos…

Governor Crist Announces He’s Independent

During most days I play the role of a mild-mannered web programmer. One of the places that I program for is a creative shop that handles a fair amount of local political campaign work (MityMo Design). Today we trekked off down the street to Straub Park so we could see Governor Charlie Crist announce that he is running as an independent for a Senate seat. Any political commentary aside, I believe that he’s got a good shot at it now.

Of course, I had my camera with me…. More photos after the jump.

Dali Photos, a photo essay

I was contacted by the Sarah Gerard and Mitzi Gordon from The Dali Museum of St Petersburg about photographing their portion of Creative Loafing’s Sensory Overload event several weeks ago. They were going to do a temporary art installation in the form of a Dali inspired fashion show and performance art. To say that I was a little excited to do this is really denying my inner tendency for hyperbole.

Over the evening of shooting the Dali’s exhibit at Creative Loafing’s Sensory Overload party) I met some awesome people and had a great time. I’d like to give props to Mitzi Gordon for all of her hard work organizing the exhibit, the designers Ivanka Ska, Aleka Pheonix, Ungala and all of the performers including the staff from the Dali Museum, the dancers from USF and University of Tampa, and Hillsborough Community College and everyone else involved. You were all amazing to work with!

I had to wait a little while to post my take on the evening so that the Dali could get first exposure on the entire set of photos from the evening and Creative Loafing could run with the photos that I took while wandering around with their street team after the Sensory overload party was over.

And with that, I give you my photographic story of the evening?
