Perdido Key Sunrise

Just before the sun came up on one of the days I was at Perdido Key, Florida, I was treated to this marvelous show of color.

As Pleasant As It Looks

From my recent trip to Perdido Key, Florida, this is the view from the living room of the condo where I was staying. It struck me as a classic, and compelling, view of the ocean.

Florida Sunset

One thing everyone loves about the beach is the sunsets. This photo was taken on Thanksgiving day in Perdido Beach, Florida. It was a beautiful clear day in the upper 60s, and ended with a wonderful sunset.

Florida Skies

One of the things I love about being near the ocean is the ever changing colors and shapes of the clouds over the water. One of my days at Perdido Key was overcast, but the clouds did beautiful things, as you can see.

Florida at Night

I spent Thanksgiving in Florida, on the beach at Perdido Key. My first evening there I took this photo of the condo where I was staying, nearest to the camera, and other condos from the beach. The colorful lights make for a festive photo.

Post 1000

This is a photo from my very first post on this blog, way back in June of 2009. I don't know what motivated me to start a blog and undertake the completely random and unenforceable obligation of posting photos three times a week, but whatever that motivation is, I feel it still. I thought I was shutting down the blog at post 700, but after a 15 month absence I came back to it.

This in my 1000th post. There is no real significance to it, but it feels like an achievement. At this point I'd like to do another 1000 posts. I like this photo for this milestone, because it embodies the spirit of what attracts me to photography: Beautiful countryside and the open road.

Best Cityscape

This is my favorite city picture, so far, taken in Chicago in October of 2006. It's pictures like this that keep me engaged with photography.
