Summer Sailing Adventure

Before I left on my trip, I had the opportunity to go sailboat racing with some friends on the Mata Hari. This was also a perfect opportunity for me to test integrating the Amod GPS unit (Google Maps version of the race data or just download the raw KML file.). Unfortunately, I went sailing the weekend before I left and didn’t have time to edit the photos and put them online before I took off.

I finally got around to editing them last night. Part of the reason it took so long to edit them after I got back is that I’ve really been burned out with photography and needed a break. I’ve hardly picked up my camera since I got back and almost contemplated selling it (I’m pretty sure this is a normal feeling, and don’t worry, I’m keeping it).

Last night was really fun though. I’m still not quite ready to pick up my camera, but I’m getting close. I have another couple hundred photos to edit from Edays (yes, from April…holy crap). Perhaps after that, I’ll start doing some more picture taking. In the meantime, enjoy these photos from the beginning of summer as we start to welcome our Fall Overlords.
