This evening, my daughter and I took a walk around the Grand Haven, Michigan south pier, home of Grand Haven’s most famous landmarks, the lighthouse and tower. While walking around the beach, I asked a handful of random people if they would be so kind as to pose for an impromptu photo. To my surprise, I had a 100% positive rate, so thank you all for participating. Of the handful I photographed, these are 3 of my favorites.
A huge “thank you” to everybody who participated and shared a few moments of their time. I hope you all had a great evening!

Went on a shoot with Alexis, this afternoon. Among other shots, we did an “action girl” series, in which it appears as though Alexis is climbing a mountain, or at the very least, a rock pile. The rock pile option isn’t too far from the truth, actually. My favorite shot taken during the “action girl” portion of the shoot follows.

Like many other reviewers, I received my Power2000 recharger as part of a package deal with a flash gun. When I received the batteries, they were completely depleted of charge. This can be typical, so that didn’t bother me. After inserting the included batteries into the charger, allowing them to charge for 7 hours, I decided to remove the charger from the power outlet, only to find that the red lights were still on (indicating that the batteries are still charging) and that the recharger AND the batteries were both extremely hot. Just below the threshold of being too hot to handle with bare hands. The batteries were still extremely hot 15 minutes after removing the charger from household power. This concerns me, deeply, as it seems that this could be a fire hazard. The batteries, though the recharging unit indicated that the batteries were not fully charged, seem to function, well. I can’t comment on how long the charge is held, as I have yet to use them to their full capacity. Overall, I would say that, if you use this item, proceed with extreme caution.
