Falcon Heavy rocket launch puts Starman driving in space

Falcon Heavy rocket launch puts Starman driving in space on February 8, 2018

I’ve always been a big fan of space and rockets. As a boy I remember staying up late to watch the astronauts land on the moon and walk on the moon (yes I’m that old – but I was a boy back then 🙂

SpaceX had another test flight yesterday and tested their Falcon Heavy rocket on February 6, 2018. Its a good thing I don’t live down in Florida or else I would never get anything done on launch days ;-).

The CEO of SpaceX thought it would be fun to launch into outer space a $100K Tesla with a “Starman” astronaut driving at the wheel. Hey if you can afford to do it why not? I wish I could see the expression on some creatures face when they find it some day drifting out in space 🙂

Here are some more fascinating photos courtesy of SpaceX

Happy New Year!

2017 Was another busy year!

2017 Was another busy year!

Happy New Year everyone! 2017 was another busy year for me and Dabour Photography. Just under 75,000 photos were captured and edited on my main computer alone! That doesn’t include my laptop and of course all the videos.

2018 is shaping up to be another busy year. I will be adding a new type of photography during the year you will notice as the year progresses. Of course more weddings, family portraits, head shots, dance, theatre, sports and the photo booth and more!

 

Circus Train Passes Through Town

The “Blue” Circus train passed through town today and you probably didn’t notice. That’s because most of us don’t pay too much attention to trains as they go by. The circus train typically only goes by once a year. This year it’s the “blue” train going west bound on their way to Norfolk, VA.

I’m not an expert on this but I believe this is the last time the circus elephants are on the train and in the circus. They are going to be offloaded and “retired” during this scheduled break

This is what happens when you post publicity shows from a large theater group and a wedding to your photography web site right around the same time! The sharp down at the end is only because it’s 8 am in the morning and the days stats are not finished yet.

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,900 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 32 trips to carry that many people.

Do You Want Free Coffee?

Then you’re in luck because today is National Coffee Day! Wawa has any size coffee free….. All. Day. Long!

I went there at 10:30 in the morning and the coffee corner was crowded still!

I heard Dunkin Donuts is giving away free medium coffee as well.

I predict tomorrow is National Insomnia Day!
