How long have you been taking pictures? When I was 12, my grandfather gave me an old 126 film camera.
I thought I had the world. Compared to today’s cameras, the 126 is a dinosaur. But I still remember the feeling of setting up displays or photographing nature. Over the years, my photo skills have drastically improved. Bu my love for nature is still as strong as ever.
I wish he could see how my photography has changed over the years.
And, how a simple camera was the start of a lifetime adventure in photography.
Until next time…peace
The cold, winter Michigan days have kept me indoors. I do not mind the snow but when the temperatures are -11˚F, I tend to retreat indoors by my fireplace. I am happy to see the temperatures finally getting above 20˚F. Of course the warmer temperatures will mean snow. But I can handle snow, in fact I like to go and take photos of the fresh, fallen snow on the trees and creek bank.
So, I have been spending more time working on photos and researching the areas, I think they may be derived. In the last set of slides that I purchased from an estate sale, I have noticed a woman in a black coat in most of the photos. I am assuming she is traveling with companion. I wish I knew who she was, what her story is, or why she took the trip. Perhaps, one of these times someone will recognize a person in one of my photos and I will be able to learn the story.
I do know the last batch of photos was taking in a warm climate. I am thinking in the Florida area. One of my friends suggested the one photo resembles Daytona Beach. The photos with businesses in the background do not have any recognizable landmarks. One of the clearer businesses is called Sweet & Blossum Florist.
Even though, I researched the business, I still did not come up with any answers. So, I am going to try and find a historical society in Florida just to ask if they have heard of the business. I will let everyone know where my efforts lead.
