theme – the end of summer
The end of summer. A time when everyone begins to move indoors. A time when the beaches become deserted and ice cream is eaten less often.
Wait a minute, this is Florida. The summer never really ends. Stay outside, eat ice cream and enjoy those sandy beaches. – Diane
theme – natural light
I chose a photo from a trip to the Florida Keys. It has lovely natural light on the palm but also just has a dreamy quality about it.
theme – serene
This photo was taken from the home we rented for a week on Sugarloaf Key.
It was truly a paradise. As I sit in 28 degree weather, I am day dreaming about my time there! - Kim
theme – best of 2012
I am not a beach person. Every spring break the kids drag me there a few times that week. I just wanted to read and enjoy the sunshine and my coffee. (My kids are teenagers so I don’t have to worry too much about them while at the beach.) I grabbed the camera as a last-minute thing while running out the door. I am glad I did. I have seen many seagulls but never a family with little ones. I spent most of the day with camera in hand and book in the beach bag. – Diane
