Jacksonville’s Muggy and Mystifying 2019 Sea and Sky Spectacular Air Show
Ever since I can remember, I have loved planes. In fact, it was my love of aviation that brought me from my childhood home in New England to Florida back in the late 90’s to study to be a pilot. So, it should come as no surprise that I love air shows. One of my earliest memories is standing atop a hill overlooking Pease Air Force Base (now Pease Tradeport) as one of the Thunderbirds flew right over my head – seemingly just a few feet above me. There is just something about an air show – the raw power of the planes, the almost superhuman skill of the pilots, and then there’s the back-to-back death defying feats on display for all to see. Its no wonder that even the threat of rain couldn’t keep out the crowds for the 2019 Jacksonville Sea and Sky Spectacular this past weekend. Here’s just a taste of the sights from this weekend, and be sure to check out our full gallery for many, many more fine art images from the air show.
Our Mega Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s October Cars and Coffee
It’s that time of the year again – when Jacksonville Cars and Coffee takes its annual field trip to TIAA Bank Field to partner with the Jaguars for one epic car show. This year was no exception, with record crowds and participants – and over 800 cars on display. For the first time, we also experimented with a step-and-repeat style portrait for those who purchased reserved parking (find your photo at our full October Cars and Coffee Gallery). Also new for October, after some helpful feedback from you, we’ve dramatically cut our digital download prices for current and past Cars and Coffee events.
Our Mega Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s September Cars and Coffee
Despite the threat of weather thanks to Tropical Storm Humberto, automotive enthusiasts from all over Northeast Florida turned out in mass for this weekend’s Jacksonville Car Culture Cars and Coffee at the Avenues Mall. Near record crowds once again flocked to the parking lots surrounding the mall to display and enjoy the diverse and unique collection of cars that the event draws each month.
Fine Art Photographs of Hurricane Dorian’s Glancing Impact on Florida’s First Coast
I don’t have to tell you, Hurricanes are a fierce force of nature – and Hurricane Dorian has proven to be one of the fiercest Atlantic storms since records began. The utter destruction and climbing death toll left in the wake of the storm’s lingering 185mph sustained winds over the Bahamas is just starting to be known, and our heart goes out to those on the islands, and the countless families awaiting news about their loved ones. Yet despite all of the horror, there is even in such darkness a beauty in the storm – an eerie, sober sort of melancholy beauty – but beauty all the same.
Our Mega Gallery from Jacksonville Car Culture’s August Cars and Coffee
Unlike the June Cars and Coffee, skies were clear and the sun sweltering at this morning’s gathering of automotive enthusiasts. When we set out at 7:30, the temperature was a more or less comfortable 80°F. Yet when we left the event just after 10, the heat index was indicating 118 degrees thanks to temperatures in the upper 90s and humidity well over 75%. Needless to say, our 1970 Triumph TR6 and its utter lack of air conditioning probably wasn’t the best choice to drive today. But despite all of the atmospheric junkiness, the the First Coast’s car enthusiast came out in force – filling the parking lots of the Avenues Mall yet again.
