Veterans Day 2015

P47-airshow-restored-veteransday

To acknowledge veterans who served our country, I found this image I photographed a few years ago at the Millville NJ Airshow. This airfield was a training field for P47’s during WWII and has a museum with lots of memorabilia from that time (P47Millville).  These are restored P47’s and they make a distinct sound when flying by. So, thank a veteran today and shake their hand.

South Carolina State House – A Grand Building as History is being made…

The South Carolina State House has a storied history.  Architects who were fired or died, burning down the building  (the original and its second), cantankerous legislation (past and present), hiding of marble…it goes on and on.  You can read more here. Now, they get to decide, again, on how the building will look.  Here are 3 versions of the same grand building.  How will it look in the future?

Independence Day – Patriotism and a little Rodeo…

lobiondo-rodeo-patriotism-july2015

A few weeks ago, my wife, Anne, decided it was time to go to the rodeo. I’ve been to big rodeos and I’ve been to small rodeos.  This was the latter.  What left an impression for me, along with the bulls, calves, assortment of smells and dress, is the patriotism of the folks who attend and perform.  Much time was spent honoring the troops and there was an intense silence during the National Anthem.  Even the animals were quiet.

So this July 4th, with the grandiose of the parades and fireworks, the little rodeo remembers the freedoms fought for, and the freedoms enjoyed.

Now, where’s the hot dogs?!

American Farm Bureau Convention 2015 in San Diego – EVENT Photography

I traveled to warm and unusually damp San Diego for the 2015 Farm Bureau Convention in January and here are some of my favorite images from the trip.  Where there’s farmers, there’s always boots and cowboy hats.

Even though the farmers are at the convention, farming at home doesn’t stop.  The use of technology has changed the way farmers communicate and keep track of important data about their farm.

One of the speakers was Rorke Denver who was a commander of Navy Seals.  Farmers are the most patriotic folks I come across and they send a high percentage of their kids into the armed services.  San Diego being the home of the Navy Seals made this speaker a home run.

There’s always a few surprises…which is the snake charmer and which is the comedian?
