Variegated agave, Jax Beach

Beach colors, Jax Beach

Napkins, PVIC

PVIC for most of you who aren't from here, is the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, to which we belong. These are ready for the lunch rush.

Woman and helicopter, PVIC

How to spot a tourist from the north.......They will be the only person sitting by a pool, under heavy clouds, with a cool damp wind blowing. Nice summery shirt though.

Japanese maple and bottlebrush tree, garden, Roscoe

Our Spring, like most of the northern hemisphere, came late and reluctantly. But it is in full swing now.

Parking lot, Winn Dixie, PV Beach

Fountains and shadows, PVIC

Nice morning light.


It's odd the way one sees. Last week I took a picture of a little four-wheeled tool at the Jacksonville Beach ball fields. Two days ago I saw this little outfit by the beach. I never noticed them before. The other little thing is a few posts down.

Looking back

This is a picture from 2006. My camera at the time was a Canon 10D and I was playing with a new Lensbaby, the most basic squeeze to focus model. Colors got bounced up by the RAW converter and I left them. It's fun to go back sometimes.

Last azaleas, 2013, Roscoe

I always hate to see the annual color display fade to green.

Never seen a Microbus seem threatening before.

Piling, P V Beach

It is now April 2nd and I am experiencing my annual "blahs" or photographer's block or creative miasma. I don't know if it's my wanting to get my garden going or the sudden wonderful weather, but I stop seeing photographs. My suspicion is that as the sun climbs higher in the sky, the light get less of that slanted, dramatic look. Combine that with rising humidity, which takes some contrast out of the light, and I go out with the camera and see no pictures. I always adjust and enjoy the warm rich light of Spring and Summer, but it takes a while.
