Bodybuilding, Florida, life, and beyond

There was no label on the train’s ejector seat button. That’s what threw me off.

After the watch-crow took ill, I installed watch-hens in the yard. I wanted some extra layers of security.

Weather service is predicting 10-12″ of “rhayne”, which is the worst spell of rain we’ve seen in these parts for years.

My watch-crow has a mild case of laryngitis. No caws for alarm.

I got an email from Alex Trebeck with the text,
“1, 3, 5, 7, 9”.
I thought, “What are the odds?”

Seemed my luck was improving; I was offered an albatross in exchange for some German sausages.
Then I took a tern for the wurst.

Shots from the 2018 Monsta Classic, held on April 28 in Lake City, are up on the site.

The prejudging was even more well-attended than in years past. As nice a venue as Gateway College is, the show is getting a little large for the site (good turnout is a Good Thing).

I missed the start of the prejudging, as flyers had been posted advertising a 10 AM start time. I was there about 9:20 and had to scramble to get set up. Moral: if there’s ever a question, verify with the promoter!

I did manage a decent shooting position– this is one of the easiest venues to shoot– and got pretty good shots of the rest of the show. There was a dark spot to the right side of the stage, but otherwise it was very evenly lit, and I had little work in post-processing to get the shots done. The competitors were in great condition and everything ran smoothly.
