Thanksgiving at Circle B

Michael and I headed to Florida over Thanksgiving week to spend time with both our families. We celebrated Michael’s side of the family in Inverness on Thursday and then with my family in Auburndale on Saturday. Sunday morning, we decided to spend a few hours at the Circle B Bar Reserve on Lake Hancock.

Named after the cattle ranch that once existed on the property, Circle B was restored to its natural state by Polk County, beginning in 2005. The restoration that has occurred on this marshland in just ten years is pretty impressive.

The visit brought back many memories and images of the Florida that I grew up in back in the 1970’s.

Here are a few images I shot during our visit:

The Haunting Faces of Angkor Thom: A Photo Essay

A Sweaty Selfie at Angkor Thom.

A Sweaty Selfie at Angkor Thom.

Angkor Thom was probably my favorite location of all that we visited in Southeast Asia. There’s an aura that is simply magical. I found myself standing– high up amongst the faces in the ruins– and I got kind of emotional. How incredibly lucky was I to actually be standing there? It was one of those moments that words fail. Hopefully, these images will explain it all.

Bermuda: A Photo Essay

It’s a chilly 47 degrees here this morning in Elgin, IL. Hard to believe that a week ago I was enjoying the beautiful warm sunny weather in Bermuda. I thought I’d share some of the pictures I took on our trip. All photos were shot at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, the private Princess Beach Club and the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum &¬†Zoo.

A Walk In The Woods: A Fall Photo Essay

One of the things my Dad and I have in common is our love for the color changes in autumn. This year seems like an extraordinary year for fall foliage in Illinois, so I decided to take a walk with my camera and try to capture the magic. This is for you Dad.

All photos were shot October 9, 2012 with a Canon Powershot SX40, minor editing in iPhoto.
