Florida. Land of…retirees, oranges, tax advantages, non-native pythons, and sunshine. Or so I’m told. I recently spent a week at lovely Sailfish Point and with the exception of one day, it either rained or was windy and 55 degrees. I know what you’re thinking, 55? That’s balmy! but it was not what I had envisioned while over packing my bathing suits and flip flops. The weather required a little imagination to entertain three kids under age two, but we managed some beautiful beach walking (amazing shells were everywhere), and fun golf cart cruising–I’ve concluded that a golf cart would be the ideal solution to getting around NYC. It also gave me some quality time with the extended family and a nice little break from my computer screen.
I limited myself to one camera and my 50mm lens on this trip. Here are a few shots from the week. I was immediately drawn to a wooden footpath on the beach, and love the photos that resulted. I’ve always thought that images of children running in mid-stride–carefree, arms flying, happy–depict the essence of childhood. Happy Wednesday!
