I’ve been fortunate enough to take some amazing pictures lately, and I’m slowly processing them to share.
Very near the hidden lake I visited last week is an abandoned miniature golf place. Most of it has fallen into complete ruin, and a heavy chain-link fence surrounds the rest, making it really hard to take photos, but I shot this fairy castle through the fence in two frames, then combined them in Photoshop.
About a mile from there is a road that goes nowhere. It was meant to be sold off in lots so people could build, but the 2008 housing crash took care of that. The grass is kept mowed, but I have a feeling no one goes there much anymore.
Not far from the tree is an oasis of sorts. It’s a triangle of green between two roads, and there are no houses. There are, however, lots of bird domiciles, an arched bridge, a bench, and assorted other treasures hidden in and under a tree. I met the guy who takes care of this spot. Nice man. Inherited the house across the street from his parents and says he’d never return to Ohio now, he loves it in Florida so much.
I was sitting in the lanai, editing, when I heard bird chatter. Not just peaceful “I’m lovin’ the day” stuff, but fighting. Two woodpeckers were going at it in the tree near my condo. I grabbed the camera and got a couple shots before they flew away. This is the best one because it shows that gorgeous red head.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
