I'm a retired website builder and amateur photographer and decided to merge those two interests with this website.
My interest in photography is primarily due to the variety of birds and the abundance of wildlife in South Florida where I moved to in 2018.
Both the Everglades and Big Cypress National Preserve are a short drive from Naples and where I tend to go to take photos, along with the many closer nature parks, rookeries, and preserves in my area.
The vast majority of photos were taken in Florida, exceptions will be clearly marked.
Naples, Florida is famous for its multi-million dollar mansions, high-end shopping, world-class culture, sophisticated dining, art galleries, chic clothing boutiques, and home decor shops. Lesser known is the Naples Swamp Buggy races which are a delightful contrast to that image of social refinement.
While the pro-class racers shown in the first photo are great to watch, the Jeep class is a lot of fun as they run in the deep water.
