Annapolis Photo-Op Invitation
I am going to post my son on the Academy Bridge (3859.59'N x 7629.21'W) over the Severn R. in Annapolis with a 12M-pix camera. The bridge is 75' at the center span. I have wanted some good pictures of the boat for years, up river with headsail - down river with spinnaker (or vice versa depending on wind).

But, it is no more difficult to take multiple boats than one - so if anyone else is interested let me know. Probably a Sunday, late morning is best allowing for Saturday to be in the neighborhood and Sunday afternoon to get home.

If I get no response after a few days - I'll press on, otherwise I am willing to pick a mutually agreeable date in Aug - Sep.

(and yeah its free, no I don't want your MasterCard number, and no I don't retain a lawyer so if you slam into the bridge pier... yours can not contact mine, and you can't get blood out of a turnip anyway.)

Will people be able to get the raw image files from you of their boats?

Wayne - I'm definitely interested. Do you have two good cameras? Some boat to boat shots might be nice also.

Great idea! We'd like to participate if we're in town. Any interest in rafting together the evening after to swap tall tales and digital images? We could try to snag a Navy mooring on Weems or Clement creek, just past the bridge.

Eryka...I like it! Wayne...We're in, sounds like a great idea, and I've actually never have sailed up the Severn past Annapolis? Weird uh

September gets my vote

Great idea! I've thought of doing something like this but didn't know of any suitable bridges. I have a high quality Nikon D300 to add to the camera pool. We'll be traveling most of August so September would get my vote.

Rafting with eryka also gets two thumbs up.

That is so cool!!!!!!!!!! If its a date when I can possibly make it, please count me in.

We are in. (Currently sailing down the Jersey coast headed for Barnegat Inlet)

Any logic in making this the weekend of Aug 27-29 and linking it with Sail With Courtney for our area? (of course all is weather-dependent)

mccary 08-05-2010 08:38 PM

The weather and skies are usually better in September than in August. I would suggest August. This sounds like a winner of an idea... depending on camera gear I might be able to assist (I am a working photographer).

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 12:39 PM.
