Greetings from Florida.
I arrived at 4 yesterday afternoon then after a 2 hour drive ended up in Anna Maria Island, a little slice of paradise where my parents spend their winters. The strip malls and condo developments are banished off the island but pounce on you as you travel in an out.
What that means is you don't have to look at a countless procession of Dennys or Outback Steakhouses, but they're 20 minutes away should you feel the urge to eat crap....we all get that urge from time to time.
I'm flying to Michigan this evening.
That may seem odd, but the ticket to FLA was originally booked when my schedule was different and as things eternally change in my itinerary, I should have known better.
30 hours+ travel and a 13 hour time difference meant I was tucked up in bed at 8:30 last night.
I was up at 5, showered dressed and wondering what to do with myself by 5:30.
Whenever I find myself at a jet lagged loose end I go out and take pictures so that's what I did.
Its freezing here and at 5:45 the mercury was hovering around -5 Celsius.
Dawn in the cold always feels more satisfying to photograph.
Your hands are icy cold and you snap away under a "hardship breeds art" delusion.
I think the results of this morning are pretty cool anyway .
