Sun-N-Fun Pool

This photo was taken with mm iPhone 4 using an HDR application called Pro HDR. This app allows me to take two photos at different exposures and then it combines the photos. Without this tool the flowers in the for ground would have been dark.

I was at a charity event about a year and a half ago and purchased a helicopter ride around Sarasota, Florida. What an amazing time we had. I took my wife, Kay and my two boys, Dylan and Tyler.
We took off from Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport and flew out over the John and Mable Ringling Museum, then over the Sarasota bay and Longboat Key to the Gulf of Mexico. We then proceeded to fly down the coast. The views were absolutely amazing. It was great to see the fabulous Sarasota real estate from the air. We flew over Lido Key, Siesta Key, Casey Key and eventually went down the Venice jetties. In a car a trip like that would take about 30-40 minutes but only 10 minutes or so from the air. The pilot then took us east over Interstate 75. The ride was a bit rougher due to the heat that the interstate created. Eventually we made out way back to the airport. I highly recommend doing this if you get a chance. If you pay retail it will probably run about $1,200. I didn't pay that but I think that is what it costs.

I was thinking about giving that as a closing gift to clients who buy a property above a certain price range. Is that a good idea?
