St. George, South Carolina

These few images were from my venturing around St. George, South Carolina that we stopped at during my drive north from Florida. One thing that I have started to appreciate more is the fact that we actually have to get off of the highway for gas, food, bathrooms whatever it is we need, instead of car / truck stops every so many miles. Forcing you to actually to see the small towns of america. It just so happens that this little town had a few of the things that I am attracted to most… abandoned houses and rust ! Of course it is a shame that an entire hotel , Ice Cream Stand and a few houses were abandoned but it made for a little bit of fun for me, taking a stretch from the long drive. Its sad to see towns that have the beginnings of a ghost town, but on the flip side for people like me it is a plus I get to show what once was through art, well it is art to me anyway. Creating beauty out of desolate, dilapidated, deteriorating buildings and objects.

Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee Preserve

I have been cleaning and organizing my hard drive and I have decided to post some of my first photographs from my adventures down here in south Florida. Last year was the first year that I lived here during the winter season and being a lover of the outdoors I of course went to multiple nature preserves. Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee Preserve was a nice place, this was also the first place where I saw alligators in the wild…. and it was a big guy! The picture I posted of the gator I took from my phone. This gator sure was a smart one just sitting around waiting at the fishing pier to snag someone’s catch… I went back a few weeks ago and he was still holding his territory strong a year later.
