As many of you know, I had planned on skipping this week's shoot out because of my schedule. As I was headed to an assignment this morning, and feeling bad about not participating (since I was one of the founders), I stopped in front of neighbor's yard and shot his cool collection of rock art and his Uncle Sam.
Crisfield is full of wonderful yard art. I mean, how hard can it be to drive around and few a shoot photos of people's yards? If you only knew my schedule.
Sorry I dropped the ball on this one - but I did participate! And our shoot outs are more about participation than putting up a bunch of photos. So I am still a "100 Percenter", meaning I have never missed a shoot out, and I have always posted on Fridays!
Thanks to Tommy Shore for his "Yard Art." BTW, Tommy always decorates his house for every holiday, be it St. Patty's Day, Easter, or Christmas. It is always a pleasure to drive by his house.
Below is Tommy volunteering his time at our recent J. Millard Tawes Crab and Clam Bake. Tommy is one of the many people who volunteer their time at events throughout the year. He also plays the organ at his church.
Tommy, why aren't you smiling? I only had time for one shot. Oh, I see. You are are trying to get to that bag of clams. Never interrupt a man trying to eat, especially when he is eating Eastern Shore food.
Oh, anyone looking for clambake photos needs to go to the Daily Times web site and look in the photo gallery.
It was a hoot! Kudos to the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce and to everyone who helped make the clambake a roaring success. Over 5,000 people were served all-you-can-eat seafood with all the trimmings and all the beer you could drink - in 4 1/2 hours! That has to be some kind of world record. And I promise, no one went home hungry.
Call the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce (see sidebar) to make your plans for next year. And maybe I will take your photograph!
