Here is another post from the archives, and another from Anna Maria Island, Florida. This time it is from last summer (2011), and all are digital images rather than film. As I said yesterday, this is the same location that my extended family visits each year, and the familiarity does force some different views on it each time I go. Visually, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the light and the colors–particularly in the evening as the sun goes down. But that is the low-hanging fruit, as it were, and is easy to make pretty breath-taking images with. The real difficulty comes in providing photographs that show something different. I haven’t gotten it yet, but I’m hoping that the next time I make the trip (this summer I cannot, for the first time in five years, due to a work conflict).
The week spent on Anna Maria Island in the summer of 2011 will be told in three parts, and I hope you enjoy it.
