20+ years of working near the water. Some days, you never even look. Other days, you can't stop.

Does this count? LOL

I'm a semi pro photographer at times and was on the job taking pictures at a resort.

Re: Views While Working


This was my view last summer from their upper deck. Soon it will be the dock. We've done the Mst. Bed & Bath, Kitchen, Family Rm.

The guy that owns the place is in his 65+ range and fly's on a regular basis. Built his own Float plane from scratch. Not bad for a guy pushing 70.

Banking flight time by doing side work during our off time from the job.

Re: Views While Working





This was last summer. A deck repair gig. Got one right now that isn't too bad but you lose points because the view is from in town, not outside of town. 9 out of ten jobs have some kind of crappy view like this.

Re: Views While Working


Here's a video of a Space shuttle launch from a customers roof in Merritt Island, Florida. To bad it was so cloudy it would have been a much better video. Because I had the perfect vantage point, roughly 5 miles from the launch pad.

+ YouTube Video

Its really not, might have been because of the shallows, tide flats. Bay water/side is mehhh. Was in the bay swimming twice today- 84+ degree day, 8 degree water.
