I took this shot back in May 2009 in one of my favorite places period, HersheyPark in Hershey, PA! Always love to hit HersheyPark each year as early in the Spring as possible, and usually get Season Passes!
I hope you are all doing GREAT! It’s funny that this is actually the first post I’ve put up here on this blog in 2013, while I’ve actually posted EVERY SINGLE DAY of 2013 over on BrentOtt.com. That’s about to change however, and in a big way. I’ve been going through the LOADS of pictures I’ve took on my trips over the years, some which I’ve never released. I’ve also been editing some of them in various ways, and I’m going to start sharing right here, hopefully quite often! ENJOY!
We’re starting with this shot, which was taken back in Outer Banks, North Carolina in June of 2010. Absolutely LOVED it there, and can’t wait to get back!
I also can’t wait until the 2013 OUP Photography Tour kicks off this JULY!
Can’t wait to get back on the road soon. You know, 2013 is right around the corner
Being in St. Louis on the eve of my 28th Birthday this year was a blast. The fact that it was also the 1,000th Episode of WWE’s “RAW” made it even better. We had a hotel (Millennium Hotel, St. Louis) which was less than one mile from where the event was taking place, the Scottrade Center. Even though it was only a mile, it was a challenge as it was AMAZINGLY hot in St. Louis that day. We’re probably talking over 100 degrees. Myself and my girlfriend both got showers before beginning the journey, and by the time we arrived at the arena we were covered in sweat. To make things worse, we had to stand outside in the blistering sun for another 20-30 minutes until we were let into the building.
Nonetheless, I wouldn’t change it for anything. Amazing event, great city, great memories. We originally planned on having a few drinks at the arena, but the $10 price tag for a beer, and $9.25, or whatever it was, price tag for a mixed drink made it so we decided to only have one a piece. It’s a common thing these days, but do arenas/venues really have to charge THAT much? Don’t they make enough off of parking, ticket sales, programs, etc?? What can you do though, still loved St. Louis!!!
