Florida 2018      

It may be hubris on my part to present vacation photos as art, but I try to take interesting images even if they are from a resort area and (gasp) include beaches and sunrises.  We were in the Fort Lauderdale / Pompano Beach area in February 2018 and had a great time visiting museums and gardens and enjoying the weather.

Photo titles and notes:

Along the A1A — shot from our car window near Fort Lauderdale.  Miles of beaches.

Condo Abstract — I have never seen so many condos in my life, a virtual explosion.

Sunrise over Pompano Beach

Poolside at Daybreak — at the Beachcomber Resort in Pompano.   I like the dim lighting here.

Path to the Beach — just beyond the pool area.  I believe the plant is called sea grapes (closeup below).










Beachside at Sunrise

Hammock and Its Shadow

• Time and Tide

Portuguese Man-o’-War Defending Its Nest — these creatures were everywhere.  Apparently this was the season for them.

Morikami Gardens — a beautiful two-hour walk through Japanese garden art.  Highly recommend it.

Bird at Morikami Gardens

Whale Fries at The Whale’s Rib  — a decent raw bar at Deerfield Beach.  Other good lunch spots were Hurricane Alley (Boynton Beach), JBs on the Beach (Deerfield Beach) and Southport Raw Bar (Fort Lauderdale).

    Jeebus, Craig – you two must have had a terrific time. Your eye for scenes and composition is clearly evident throughout these. Very tough to pick a “fave” but, if pressed, I’d have to go with Condo Abstract. With Along the A1A as !st runner-up, should Condo Abstract be unable to fulfill its duties . . .
