It’s true that what you think and feel translates through the lens. As I reviewed the photos I took on this trip, I saw how exhausted and creeped out we were, traveling on broken roads through forgotten tourist towns. Always when we go to Florida each year, people inevitably say how nice, the beach, as if the only part of a place is what we know from postcards or movies, the places where everybody is from but nobody visits as they pass through on their way somewhere else.

Wonderful photos, thanks. I was amused to see the overcast weather and rain puddles–you must have been pleased with the weather! Did you go into Jimbo’s? I like the pirate’s earring.
