Hello. Here we are. But why?
I'm here to tell you all about my Florida photographs, and show you some.
You're here, I presume, to see the pretty pictures and find out what, if anything, is inside my head. Perhaps you'd like to know the stories behind the pictures.
So let us proceed.
Sometimes my wild, overgrown yard has insects such as this moth, perched on the dried stem of last year's faded wildflower.
Photos at my house, especially macro, are challenging due to frequent breezes. I live about 7 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, and flowers or insects perched on long stems sway in the breeze while I try to catch them in a very shallow depth of field.
At the end of summer, when rains are heavy, I get standing water in my back yard. In addition to being near the Gulf of Mexico, I'm also just north of the Chassahowitzka Swamp. One morning I went out and caught one of the many grasses in my yard gazing at its reflection in the water. At least I think that's what it was doing.
Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. I take photos of them, and...
I never see lettuce this lovely at the supermarket!
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Historic State Park in Cross Creek, the former home of the author of The Yearling. Here, in the kitchen pantry window, were these lovely blue jars.
I'd love to go there again. In the meantime, there are many exciting places to go much closer to home.
This rusted bicycle was in the yard of an abandoned home in Floral City. (The same yard was the location of the welcome sign at the top of the page.)
I like rusty, derelict, abandoned houses and objects. They're mysterious and interesting, with stories to tell.
Abandoned house in Gainesville, Florida. A broken window, tattered old curtains, the trees and sky above...
I took many pictures of this place. I'll share more with you later, as well as other photos I think you may enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by!
