It’s a Beautiful Time of Year in Alachua County

Yesterday, I set out. A left turn here, a right turn a few miles later, then a U-turn to take a dirt road. I found abandoned/invisible communities, energetic streams, eccentricities. If you click the link below, you SHOULD find yourself at Google’s version of the photos I took as I meandered, with no idea where I was. I love those days. Imagine setting out with no destination, not even a plan to turn onto a road until you see it. Thus was my day.

Let me know if the link works, and if you have a minute, let me know what you think about a one-day trip along a dirt road.

New Genre?

Being new to this part of the state, I don’t know if the rain we’ve had is normal or more than normal. It doesn’t bother me, anyway, since the weather is not the boss of me. I do, though, like to get out often to drive the back roads and photograph  secret spots here and yon. It’s a great way to get my imagine headed towards writing. This is a hobby best practiced when the sky is blue, but lately, the sky has not favored this wandering photographer. And so, to see our cloudy days through different eyes, I decided to play up the gloom. I’m now taking rainy-day pictures and categorizing them as Southern Goth. Here are some examples. Expect more as I hone my craft. Stories to follow.Sit a Spell (2) IMG_20150103_160008509_HDR 101_9128 Frowning Church (2) The Sad ChurchIMG_20150103_141856130
