I did a lot of picture-taking this past week, so I thought I’d focus on putting up some of my photos, from Tarpon Springs, Largo, and Clearwater.
My first stop was at Wall Springs, near Tarpon Springs. I had been there on my bike but didn’t have my camera with me at the time, so I wanted to get back there and see what I could capture. It’s a beautiful place — small, but interesting, and the spring has been through a lot of iterations in this century.
I took pictures of the plaques up around the spring so I would remember what the area used to look like, but here’s what it looks like now (not sure why it’s called ‘Springs,’ since I only see one. . .).
On Friday of last week, my friend in Largo took the day off from work, so we headed out to Central Park (in Largo, not NYC), where there’s also a nature preserve. Unfortunately, I think my diopter was outta whack on my camera, because many (if not most) of the pictures I took in the preserve were blurry. Here’s what I got that was worth saving from there:
On Saturday was the Sun N Fun Clearwater festival, at Coachmen Park, which was a lot of fun. The weather was beautiful (hot and sunny), and there was lots of fair food, free wine and cheese samples, and bands that were a blast from the past. . . Remember Orleans, Atlanta Rhythm Section, The Romantics — and Eddie Money? My friend had a press pass, so she ended up getting us in the festival for free, and then we ended up with passes to go up to the stage to take pictures (yeah, we were completely amazed at our luck, but she’s good!). Just some random shots:
Orleans onstage (Dance with Me)
Followed by Atlanta Rhythm Section (So Into You)
And then the harder rockers, The Romantics (That’s What I Like About You)
Finally, it was time for Eddie Money (I was more impressed with the cowboy, though. . .)
So tomorrow is moving day, and it’s supposed to rain for the next three days. It’s not the first time I’ve set up in the rain, but it’s not my favorite thing to do. . . Yeah, I need a little cheese with that whine — until next time!
