Favorites of the Week

I've started bring my camera more often with me on my morning walk usually with a 14mm or 55 macro lens.  Always something to see as the sun rises over Terra Ceia. We got caught in the rain one morning and spent some time keeping dry on the front porch of the Prine House. Later that day on my way home from a workshop in St. Pete, I stopped at the rest area on the south side of the bridge and watched the sunset at the Sunshine Skyway. Layers of clouds and colors. About 10pm that night I got a text from a neighbor on the other side of the island to tell me another cereus cactus was putting on its yearly show. I got my gear together and waited for Janet to get home from work. We dressed for mosquitos and left our house at midnight. Close to a hundred blooms. Pretty awesome to see. We photographed until 2am. A serious year for cereus blooms in the neighborhood. Ended the week with a wedding celebration at Seabreeze Park where I noticed the silhouettes from inside the party tent. Got some friends to line the wall for a photo.
