More negative scanning! These photos are all from the early to mid-1980s. I love digging out old stuff like this, especially when I haven't seen it in years. I don't have prints of any of these.
Above is the view from my bedroom in the house where I grew up. My room faced the lake, which got misty in cold weather. I believe that shot was taken around sunrise, sometime in winter 1984.
Here, on the other hand, is a sunset with driftwood on Longboat Key. As I remember, the colors were somewhat watery-looking even in the original print; I think it was early evening and the sun hadn't descended enough for vivid oranges.
These horseshoe crabs were washed ashore at Picnic Island, in Tampa Bay, in 1987 or '88. This was an evening photo, too -- hence the golden light. Tampa Bay is full of horseshoe crabs. I remember walking along Bayshore Boulevard and looking over the sidewalk railing to watch them crawling along the grassy bay bottom.
This is a fence near Madison, Fla., and probably also an evening shot, judging from the colors. Fun perspective.
And finally, here's a fire hydrant, also in Madison. I believe these last two photos were from the same road trip that yielded this photo, and if so they're from November 1987.
I get such a kick out of looking back in time and seeing what caught my eye back then. It seems like a lifetime ago!
