Day 65 San Marco Avenue in St. Augustine

Wednesday, September 09, 2015

San Marco Avenue in St. Augustine has an array of upscale shops, charming hotels and quaint restaurants. It’s hard to take a bad photograph here. The biggest issue I ran into is the amount of tourist here. Getting a clean shot free of people is next to impossible. For the first shot, I simply pointed the camera up above everyones head. There was enough visual interest in the balconies and storefront signs that made the shot work. The second shot was a waiting game.

Day 64 Lightner Museum In St. Augustine

Thursday, August 20, 2015

The Lightner Museum is a wonderful must see attraction if you’re visiting St. Augustine. Actually, it’s more than a museum. The Lightner also serves as City Hall and also houses a restaurant that was once a Turkish Bath. I can’t recommend this place enough.Above is a photo of a photo. I you look close you can see my reflection. The former Hotel Alcazar was commissioned by Henry M. Flagler to appeal to wealthy tourists who traveled south for the winter on his railroad, the Florida East Coast Railway. Floridians call these people “Snow Birds”.

Day 63 Ponce de León The Fountain of Youth

Sunday, August 16, 2015

19+ days of pounding Florida rain really took the wind out of me. I jump started my creativity by taking a little road trip to St. Augustine Florida. The oldest city in the United States. I have many of photos to share and I plan on milking them. This one was taken in front of what conquistador Ponce de León called The Fountain of Youth as legend has it. In actuality Ponce de León did not mention the fountain in any of his writings throughout the course of his expedition. His name was not associated with the legend in writing until after his death.

Day 60: The Oldsmar Fleamarket. AKA The Florida Time Square

Thursday, July 09, 2015

Here is a photo you can take at high noon. I shot this at the Oldsmar Flea Market during lunch. I nicknamed this place “The Florida Time Square”. The sea of signs immediately caught my eye. The gentleman pushing the garbage can completely called me out on taking his photo. He verbatim asked me “why I was checking him out in the photo?”. I politely told him I was photographing the signage. He just happened to walk right into the lower third part of the the frame. This place is right up there with a carnival.
