The nice thing about America is that someone can leave their home country, change professions and make a go of it. This fella was some big time musician in Lucca, Italy and came to Vilano Beach and has a great ristorante!
Every winter we get visits from black skimmers. The nearest bird, with the red and black beak is one of two in this flock of gulls. The other was a bit more standoffish. These have a long lower beak and feed by flying next to the water with their lower beak skimming the surface. They are beautiful to watch. I wish they were year round residents.
Really? If you had a house to sell, would your first call be to a single person who put out a cheap, and illegal, sign, with no name or business attached to it.....and a cash deal? Wow there must be suckers out there.
We were in Nashville last weekend. This house was near my daughter's house. The light and the rich shadows had me out twice a day to take pictures. This works so well with the Lens Work adjustment. More from Nashville when I catch up. (I know, Nashville isn't North Florida, but Jacksonville is named for Andrew Jackson and he was from Nashville, so there.)
This was a sign for a motel, probably in the 1950s or 1960s. The motel is gone but the city has preserved the sign, with help from private donors. It really is a classic example of the style of sign. I'm glad it's there.
