The Journey Begins…

I have been coming to Sarasota as a frequent visitor for the past 15 years or so.  I was immediately struck by the lush, tropical beauty of the area (as well as the conspicuous lack of snow!)  Now that I am retired, it has become my permanent home.  I live on the southern end of Siesta Key, with a great view of Little Sarasota Bay.  Armed with the recent completion of a photography course, I feel empowered to capture this natural beauty through my camera lens.

In addition to photographing Sarasota’s Keys, I enjoy prowling through the city itself with my trusty Nikon D40.  I especially love the city’s charming neighborhoods, such as Burns Court and Laurel Park.  There’s always a pleasant surprise around every corner.

Suggestions for subjects to photograph are always welcome.  As a newbie, there is a lot for me to discover.

Thanks for joining me!
