Tonight I have something different for you. When we were in Barbados, we found this fairly new beer that is made on the island. It was first brewed in 2009 by 10 Saints Brewery Company. The beer is unique because it is aged for 90 days in Mount Gay ‘Special Reserve’ Rum casks. By the way, Mount Gay Rum is made in Barbados as well. This gave the beer a very smooth taste and made it our beer of choice all week. It is named 10 Saints because of the 10 Parishes (like counties in the United States) in Barbados are named after saints.
Anyway, I did an impromptu product photo shoot towards the end of the week. I cleared an area of the beach near our hotel, with the ocean and sailboats in the background. I took two bottles and let them sweat a little in the Caribbean sun. Then I laid on my stomach to get the camera as low as possible for this shot. And I attempted to bounce the sunlight back at the bottles.

I have a special note below today’s photo….don’t forget to scroll down to see it.
Recently I was contacted by a research doctor at the University of Pittsburgh about using one of my photos for an upcoming conference. We negotiated a little and came to an agreement. So now my photo of PNC Park is being used for the annual Pheno 2015 conference poster. The conference gathers international physicists working on the phenomenology of elementary particles, cosmology, and astrophysics. Don’t ask me what any of that means….. The cool thing about this is the poster will be mailed and electronically sent to potential attendees around the world. You can see the poster below.
