Note: This weblog is definitely a labor of love, celebrating the hidden paradise beyond the parking lots and strip malls.
I started out posting photographs I have made over the years that particularly capture the mystique of Florida---especially North Florida. After awhile, I realized that my photographs simply didn't have the scope I wanted or that I felt was necessary to do justice to my subject, so for a long time I stopped. Then in the course of doing something else entirely I stumbled across Flickr's Creative Commons, where wonderful and generous photographers make their splendid work available to others for use. Henceforth I will principally be including the work of others, though my own work does appear from time to time.
The front page shows the photographs most recently added. But to see what the site is really about, click on any of the topics in the righthand sidebar. The real purpose of the site is to put photographs on various subjects together with and in juxtaposition to others addressing the same topic. Most photographs appear under several topics and therefore together with completely different sets of photographs. For that reason the "main pages" are the pages under each topic.
That's my artistic (if you will) contribution: the creation of many collages reflecting Florida and Florida life. Over time, and as I collect more photographs, I expect this to evolve into a true and accurate reflection of the true and enduring Florida.
